    Towed with the 4runner for the first time ever. Just a short trip to the county dump with a big 4wheeled uhaul trailer. She did great! Wouldn't want to pull a trailer that heavy very long. Good times!

    Alignment done. Just need to install the extended rear brake lines. Yes, I do plan on upsizing the tires.

    I’m getting a new bumper from Demello and I decided to pull the old one early. Not sure if that would fit in the same spot, this was what they recommended and normally install along with their bumpers.

    Original Panasonic battery was starting to go. Listen to the radio for more than 20 minutes and she has trouble turning over. With the weather about the be regularly before freezing, I don't want to take a chance it won't start.

    I went with Toyota's 24F. When I had my Tacoma, OEM was the best option so I stuck with that.

    My panasonic went out a little while ago. I got an Everstart from Walmart.

    I know, I know. Walmart? Really?

    It actually tested really well.

    I tried getting the OEM one when mine died, but it was discontinued. Figures. Lasted 7 years and over 100k. I went with an Odyssey 34R for the replacement.

    My original OEM battery also died a few months ago, while listening to the radio for 10 minutes. The Panasonics just aren’t what they used to be. Got a Costco battery. Better plan on preemptively replacing it every 3 years.

    The battery I bought is 00544-24F60-575. The website says it was Not For Sale, but the dealership had them in stock. Maybe they just can't be purchased online due to the extra shipping precautions.

    My Tacoma had the 27F TruStart battery. Had the truck for 11 years, only had to replace the battery once after 6 years.

    Tore my dash apart, removed the glove box and everything down the middle of the dash. Unscrewed all the components in the glove box, zip tied a bunch of random harnesses in the dash, tightened every nut bolt and screw I could find, cleaned the little bit of dust off everything. Applied felt panel isolation tape on every plastic mating surface and put it all back together. Panels are definitely tighter now. Let’s hope the incredibly irritating 4Runner dash vibration is gone now. Next will be to take care of the tailgate creek.

    Blacked out badges, window deflectors, smoked 3rd brake light. I have a Borla muffler on order as well as some color matched engine cover stickers. I'll be painting the stock wheels soon as well. Falken tires in the fall as well.
    Mine hasn't started yet but when it does you can do that all over again just for your dear old dad! LOL!

    Aimed the headlights down last night about 4 turns each. The Ironman 4x4 lift took an inch of rake out so the beam pattern from the H9s wasn't as good as before and I'm sure oncoming traffic will appreciate it. I'm also installing extended brake likes for the rear today.

    Next upgrades in January will probably be a BOTCK from Dr. KDSS and upgraded front sway bar endlinks to finish out the suspension.

    Just replaced mine on my 2020. The OEM lasted 2 years. I should be driving it more so the battery will last longer. Just reached 5000 miles.

    Adjusted the tailgate striker in an attempt to solve the tailgate creek. We’ll see what happens! New front and rear wiper blades for the 4Runner and Highlander.

    Oh, re: snow. I had already removed the stock one for a new bumper I’m getting. Well coming back from Mammoth all the slush kept getting kicked up on the windshield and I had no fluid to clean it. Was a brain fart on my side for sure.
