    Is that a Sherpa rack? Just installed mine yesterday. How are the rubber blocks holding up against water intrusion around the mounting bolts? I followed their instructions and applied no silicone.

    I had same thing happen to me about a years ago. Ran to up the local Walgreens for something, came back out and was sitting in parking lot texting a friend with sunroof open, and just randomly some bird pooped thru the sunroof. It cleaned up real easily, but I was like, "Damn! Did this REALLY just happen to me??"

    Aside from the 120v indoor outlets, now there is a 120v outlet on the outside. And once again, an appreciation for mechanics and electricians. Because while you make it look easy none of this is simple. At least this time my arm did NOT get stuck trying to secure a wire through a gap between the tire and the vehicle. However, I did get a nice jolt after forgetting to disconnect the 3k-watt inverter.

    So to all the soothsayers on the World of 4Runners:

    Looking for some recommendations to replace my high beams and reverse lights (brands I mean). I have 2021 TRD ORD Premium, so it already had LED lowbeam head and fog lights. I don't wanna spend $100 for a pair of reverse lights that only get used about once a day. High beams are a different story. So send me some recommendations (please and thank you).

    Finally got the chance to get some scratches as went with a local FB group for some forest trail offroading. Truck and tires (Toyo Open Country A/T3s) performed awesome, as we hit a steep grade lined with large river rocks and wet tires. Put in 4L and locked rear diff, and was effortless.

    I quickly realized any additional money I spend on the truck next has to be for a lift :spending:

    Odd. Mine don't hinder the switch function on any of my windows. They all work as they did when naked.

    Reverse: I'm using these JDMASTAR bulbs. Wanted to upgrade the reverse lights in my '21 Runner and just happened to find some of these still new in package from my Ram 1500 when I was cleaning out my garage of all things Ram related. Luckily, they are the same size and fit and work great in the Runner!

    High beams: I have the same headlight assemblies (LED lows/halogen highs/drls): I was ecstatic to learn that the 9005-9011 Philips mod that I used in my Ram also works for my Runner! So I just purchased these 9011 HIR Philips bulbs and will be performing this "mod" this weekend! Sounds like the upgrade in output will be just as good as it was in my Ram - if so, I'll be quite pleased!

    Wow, that looks great. I'm heavily leaning towards the IMS suspension for mine too. I'm running stock size Toyo AT3's on mine and I'm curious what size you have to give me a relative size comparison for the amount of lift you have.

    Toyo Open Country III as well in 275-70-17. They are only available in E load which for some are overkill. I figure they are indestructible...almost. Thought about 285-70-17 Toyos in C but they are heavier than the size I have. Didn't want to go KO2s due to user reports here of hydroplaning and balance challenges. KO2s in 285-70-17 C are a bit lighter.
    User experiences differ...

    Front Passenger side is done. These caliper pins are a pita. IMG_20220927_155021.jpg IMG_20220927_172142.jpg

    I'm able to get one of the caliper pins out on the driver's side, but so far, the other one won't budge at all.

    Thanks.
    Love it. Going up to MT/ WY soon to REALLY try out the suspension.
    I'll elaborate. Tighter, significantly improved nose dive, little stiffer (to be expected), takes speed bumps, expansion joints, RR tracks, pot holes and road irregularities with aplomb. Much improved over OEM suspension.

    That’s one of the best descriptions that I’ve read yet. Those “obstacles” are ones I encounter every day so that’s super useful information. Thank you!
