    Tinted the windows… ceramic.
    Tint shop made a vinyl wrap for the hood scoop too. Satin black.

    That front side window is dark. I'd get a ticket in my state. Looks great though.

    Lift? If no lift, rub? Which BF Goodrich tires? Can't make out what they are.
    Thanks and looks great.

    I made a choice to tint all the windows. But I chose a tint for the fronts that's lighter than the back. It's dark but when you see it, you don't immediately think it's tinted.

    The Ceramic tint really made a difference. Worth it.

    I had ceramic tint put on Tacoma last summer. Not gonna lie. It kinda steep at $700 + tax.

    BUT I had the old tint pulled off, tint put on my sunroof and front windshield, and side/back glass. It was done by a local shop where I live. It's a small business, and most other places are 15-30 min drive. So I do wanna try and support the smaller guys where I can.

    @Burnt Taco Load rating E. I didn’t even think to ask. I like the feel of it and not sure I could feel the difference had they been C.

    Ordered RSG KDSS Plate and Cat Protection Plate. Built a 60% platform for sleeping and just started to decide gear location. I’m more of a week or less leave home day trips, overnight backpack into forest/old guy hang in the forest by myself so I’m setting up the Off road with that in mind. I have 400w Wattfun as well and the backpack will double as clothes/linen storage. I always liked having the 40% seat in the normal position for getting in and out. Less contortion. I highly recommend the Willlpo mattress. Even on your side it’s provides cushion.CBAA21F2-88E4-4911-A7A5-25388C135871.jpg315AF6B3-B02A-4D3D-B1DD-657B436E2C98.jpg

    Dobinsons 2.5" lift. Cooper AT3 XLT 295/70R17.
    Oil change today. Didn't start off that smoothly though. Not sure how much of this I should blame on living in the salt belt, or that the dealer probably over tightened it when I used my free oil changes. They did strip one of the other bolts. I'll be sure to use plenty of anti-seize going forward.

    IMG_20220512_094516.jpg


    I also added the TRD skid plate. I thought this went over the steel plate like on the Tacoma, but this replaces the steel plate. It also seems a little beefier than the TRD skid plate my Tacoma had. Less bolts to worry about too.

    IMG_20220512_160200~01.jpg

    I'm assuming it's beefy enough to be used as a jack point...

    Was wondering what that was myself. I dropped the oil for the first time at 1700kms and saw that. What is that black piece ?

    Installed this trickle charger (http://www.lslproducts.net/ALS_Overview_Page.html) for the start battery (This one is for Lithium but also available for Acid and AMG house batteries). As long as the house battery is charging (solar or 110-120v), the start battery is also charged. The RV industry primarily uses this product to trickle charge the start battery while the RV is in storage (outside or inside) and connected to a power source (solar or 110-120v). Also, I moved the house charge shut off to a higher position. The previous position was right at the door ?armrest and did not allow space to turn the switch with the door closed. Thus, having to open the door to turn the switch.

    That's where you would place a jack to lift the front of the vehicle. The steel plate has something similar. It contacts the cross member.

    After 27 months and being in less than 2-3 rains changed the disintegrating original wipers for the cheapest available at AutoZone.

    Tinted fronts, blacked out overlays.
    Installed the LFD Offroad crossbars and windfairing crossbar. Pretty simple install, I did install a strip of Clear Bra PPF under the fairing in case it ends up rubbing when I load stuff on it but it’s pretty sturdy so unless something really heavy is placed on it I doubt it’ll sag and rub. Anyways here’s some pics.

    Looks great! Considered the same product, except wanted a lower silhouette.

    Doesn't take much. For me the solar panel cable left a rubbing mark that would NOT come out. At a stop the cables are NOT touching but must have enough slack to rub while driving. Thus, covered the entire roof rack area with vinyl too. Thinking, if the cable rubs while driving any other strap, etc. will rub too.

    Thanks. Few are original thoughts. Most are from watching others (100s of SUV, Van, RV, Tiny Homes, Overland builds, etc. from USA and abroad--even if I can't understand their languages) and then replicating/tweaking to fit the 4Runner.

    Yup that’s why I went ahead and put a strip of PPF just in case. I’m not loading it up using it to carry a Hi Lift and a Box with recovery gear.
