    Did you take rails off? I'm considering painting my silver ones black while still on the vehicle. Mask car completely with tarps...dunno still pondering.

    while I know you’re not asking me, one option that I went with was vinyl wrap. Local guy did my side rails for $100 without removing them. He did a great job and I can still position the cross rails wherever needed.

    before I upgraded to a new rack.. I took off the rails and plasti dip about 4 coats.. took about 1.5 hours installed rails back and let it sit in the drive way that day.. really easy..

    IMO, I do suggest taking them off to get underneath side rails.. save time as well instead of masking the 4R..

    good luck..

    All of them.
    Same here. I’d like the folding mirrors for when I don’t have a passenger on trails. Good that’s assuming you can fold them in while in motion.

    I can't get over just how quiet they are on the road! When I had them on my old yota pickup, there was a lot of road noise, but in that truck, you could hear the dude in the car next to you farting. I'm hoping to give them a solid off road test here in a few weeks. :)

    as for me, I spent the better part of monday afternoon/evening and tuesday installing the OEM Audio + system in my 4 runner. Overall the install wasn't bad. Running the wiring was a pain in the ass at times. especially trying to run the loom up to the head unit and then running the connection to the sub. Death by a million cuts haha. But I'm loving the OEM look, the sound is night and day better, there's actual clarity to the sound coming out of the speakers vs the crap that was coming out of the paper thin stock speakers. Oh and getting the door panels back on was fun and I was struggling mightily to get the top of the panel to latch back in. After 45+ minutes of struggling, watching youtube videos, calling into O+ asking if they had any tips (they did not, but were so helpful in the install process regardless). I realized that the channel that goes on the top of the door (for the seal on the window) can be removed from the door panel. So once you do that, place that channel back on the door, then the door panel easily clicks back into place. Oh and while I was at it. installed the LED interior lights that have been sitting in my garage for 2 months.

    Hardest part of the install for me was fishing the wire through the rubber door wire cover, otherwise straight fwd.

    At night the difference is ridiculous.

    Now if only I can find someone that knows if there is a 5.5thgen fog feed in the cabin I can tap for anytime fogs. The old ant man standard is only good for early 5th gen and not 5.5.

    you can fold anytime the car is on, with a manual button, and when you lock or unlock the doors they fold. wont be for awhile, i see no reason to take the door panels off without upgrading the speakers, so saving for the oem speaker package.

    Today I got my front bumper shackles. They are a nice tight fit and they will hopefully come in handy.

    They look good. That’s the Eagle Eye clear, correct? I installed their taillights with the smoked housing last month. Very pleased with the product (and price). Easy install as well.

    The water and condensation was my biggest worry so I applied a light layer of clear silicone along the creases and any spots that looked like water could get in.

    I'd take those off before they get stolen. I live in a "good" area, and still had mine disappear within maybe a month. And if your hi lift is accessible, put a padlock on the end of the bar so they can't just slide the entire mechanism off and leave the bar behind. Things I learned the hard way.

    Thank you for the heads up. I remove the hi-lift after I am done going off-roading. I live it a rural area and my nearest neighbor is pretty far away from me. I would be more worried about these being stolen when I go out to the city. Not so much at home. One day those thieves will pay the price for their theft. Sorry you got your stuff stolen.

    I added power folding mirrors to my wife’s ‘21 this past weekend. I had installed them on her ‘20 last year. When she got the ‘21, she said that needed to be one of the top priorities for her. She uses it for mainly looking back at the truck to make sure the vehicle is locked. Easy to tell if you have folding mirrors if you miss hearing the beep of the keyless. Install really pretty easy and straightforward.
    Good luck!
