    I, too, took an Outback detour between 4Runners. The "iPad" in the center stack malfunctioned on an almost daily basis, and by the end I was ready to drive it into a creek.

    Yeah there were all kinds of quirky issues with it. I was ready to punch a hole in the iPad. That will be my last Subaru.

    Too many….Is that a thing?
    Maybe I’m missing something, but won’t the tab over the end cut into the rope?

    Bought the rubber hitch receiver plug. Not sure why these don’t come standard?

    My 2004 came with one but I had to buy one for my 2017. Keep in mind that you need to make sure it fits tight or you will be buying another one :(

    Yeah, it’s not super tight but it only cost like $8 or $9. If I lose it no big deal.

    Never had any problems with the one on my 2001 4Runner.

    Any cords cut? Or just a superficial wound?

    Agree, but if it's simply rubber peel it'll likely outlast the other three. Unless the same spot takes a more substantial blow. Something to keep an eye out for, for sure.

    Hmmm, good eye, thanks for pointing it out! I double checked just to make sure…all is good, it doesnt wrap back far enough to touch the line.

    You should have seen the property taxes on my Tacoma. I thought it would be much worse for my 4Runner, but I'm fortunate the city changed how they calculate the taxes.

    Installed some n-fab steps on my wife's 4runner. She likes the looks of the predator steps but we were able to get these for quite a bit cheaper. Reviews said that they rust so we just coated them with some diy bedliner yesterday and let them set overnight. Took all of 5 minutes to get them on with the wife's help.

    Already had it done before this. I’m clear there, just banged my pinch welds flat, trimmed about another 1.5” off the bumper, trimmed rocker panel caps, and trimmed more fender liner. Nice and clear now

    Yeah my Tacoma is still high, 2012 and I'm at $386 on that one. The way they do it here is they base it of the vehicles value, so basically if you own a Toyota you get screwed because they hold there value.
