    Looks good! Did you end up using the Ironman quick brackets? If so, how did they work out for you?

    Thanks. And yes, used the Ironman quick release brackets. For my use, those brackets are THE way to go! I installed a couple of wall hooks in the garage and that’s where the awning lives until I need it on the 4R. Easy Peasy. Now I’m trying to find a combo lock that fits the Ironman bracket.

    Adapting pretty well. Looks like maybe an ear infection (GSPs are prone to them). Relating better to us and getting along well with the GWP/Griffon (still learning her rules as well as ours ;-) ).

    Nice. The Lunar Rock has a cool blue hue in this pic, not sure I've seen it like that before. Great color!

    I added two items:

    First, I've been sitting on these Meso Custom black-out door handles for a couple months. Finally got around to installing them. Took less than 3 mins total!

    MesoCustHandlesDrvr.jpg MesoCustHandlesPass.jpg

    Next, I installed Cali-Raised Rear Molle Panels, both sides. Been waiting to make sure I thought I could make good use of them, and I'm certain I can... plus 4Runner Lifestyle has a great sale on them right now. These only took about 30 mins to install. Easy-Peasy.


    CR_Molle_Both.jpg CRMolle_Drvr.jpg CRMolle_Pass.jpg



    Now I just need to figure out if the Canvas Back Side Covers I have been waiting to install will work with the Molle panels. These pics show me that I need to stop scratching thing up in there!

    I’m using these master locks. The fit is absolutely perfect, super snug, no play at all. They don’t move around or rattle. The longer shank makes them easy to slide on and off.

    Weather wasn't bad for November. Changed the rear diff fluid. Maybe a bit overdue at 82k miles. Drain plug looked fine and the old oil was still semi-transparent. Didn't take much effort to loosen the plugs. Hopefully tomorrow the weather is the same so I can get the front diff and xfer case done.

    Thanks. I like it. Especially the no rattling thing. And, yes, at least a 2” shackle.
    Trying to find a combi one so no lost keys!
    If I strike out will go your master keyed route.

    Ha. Depends on how much you want to save the seat backs, I guess. I'm sure someone out there makes cheaper alternative, but these are definitely the best and will last and will protect. Unfortunately, they appear to not sell just the seat back covers.

    Replaced the oil in the front diff and xfer case. The oil looked almost new in both even with 82k miles.

    I also replaced the Allen bolt plugs in the front diff with hex bolt plugs. The old plugs were rusty and I don't want to take a chance on stripping them in the future.

    nice work. A tiny bit of antiseize on the threads works well too.

    Haven't done it yet, but finally purchased some JBA UCAs for my rig. The wandering at highways speeds has been terrible and proper caster is impossible. Can't wait to finally drive without feeling like I am battling against every bump, slant, groove, and wind interference when commuting. Long overdue, but better late than never I guess!

    Update: Ordered an hour ago and the UCAs have already shipped!!! Wow!

    Just installed the Meso customs dome lights in our 2018. Pretty nice for when the kid wants to use the light in the back we can just flip to red

    So I installed the toytec 3inch coils front and back. Now when I drive I notice that when I am going straight, the steering wheel is tilted to the left. Also On the highway I feel like I have to correct the steering more often in order to stay in the center of the lane. Do you think it is because I need to do an alignment or because I need UCAs? Your opinions are appreciated

    Definitely need an alignment after most, if not all changes to suspension. I had the same experience you're having with only leveling out the front.

    So I was really stoked when those came out for my Tundra, but some guys on the Tundra forum were saying they’re too bright. I haven’t bought them because of that. What are your thoughts on the ones you bought for the 4R? White light too bright? I had the same thought of just running the red light for the kids and the white light if I need to find something.
