    What color and where'd you find it?

    Ive been thinking about the Anthracite color from Plastidip but seems I can only buy it from DYC.

    Sometimes having aftermarket shit is a pain in the ass. Ordered $40 brackets to fit my diode fogs to my new bumper, to find they don’t really work that well. Then realized I need to order flat bezels to make them work. Said f it and rigged it the way it is. 6CBFC53F-2EA5-44C9-ACD2-E7A462A52E4B.jpg

    Installed my AVS vent shades. I like how flush they are in comparison to the ones that bulge out. 10 minutes to install

    I imagine it will fit 21 as the 4Runner body hasn’t really changed. I think it will look good but I can send you a picture tomorrow with it against the black door rails and you can let me know what you think.

    Here is the picture I just took. Looks like it would look good on black.

    I installed an accessorides remote start kit. Took a little over an hour. Not terribly hard, but the panel clips don’t release as easy for me as they do on the YouTube install video.

    Nice, please tell us a little more about your installation, where you purchased … also is that just a flashlight or did you install a glovebox light & small old school push-in switch so when lid closes up it shuts off?

    ToyTec Lift, Dual Batt Redarc. Rear safe drawer, console safe, Aux 2004 JGC fuse box
    I wanted to post this once I had confirmed it worked well. Essentially, not being a complete Blue Sea fan, I like their gauges though, I installed a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee PDU(A/K/A) "fuse box" to distribute power from my secondary battery to whatever I added on down the road such as a fridge, lights, GAU-8/A, what have you. "Heresy!" Jeep parts into a Toyota..lol. But wait it gets better!

    I found some cheap ditch lights and mated them with some Cali-raised low profile mounts. Cali-raised makes some good stuff! I had seen a couple of posts somewhere on the interwebs describing how to use the Wireless 'Home-Link' buttons to control wireless relays. The Home-Link buttons are pretty useless to me as is because I don't have a garage and don't live behind a gate. So off I went to Amazon and found a cheap Chinese POS wireless relay. The key to this is it has to be a 'latching' relay not momentary. Latching will keep the wireless relay closed allowing lights to stay on and not go off once you release the 'Home-Link' button.

    Now I have three buttons that can be used and not have the need to hardwire to the dash. I'm not sure I will keep it this way. I just wanted to see if I could make it work. I have a fancy hard switch that lights up on the bench waiting. If I do decide I like this I'll be getting a much more robust, industrial type relay and not rely on the current one as I don't trust it. The PDU is mounted on a shelf from C4 Fab as I was going to mount an AC there but decided against.

    Programming the 'Home-Link' buttons, if your 4Runner is equipped, is straight forward, but you have to follow the manual exactly. $30 for the junkyard fuse box. $15 bucks for relay. I had some plastic restorer and fuse box looks like it belongs there.
    YMMV
