    More and more companies are coming out with 255's. Such a good size.

    Installed a Garmin dash cam "Mini 2" with the Dongar power mirror adapter kit. Overall was a super easy install and I appreciate the small form factor of the camera as I have a handful of other sensors and junk behind the mirror as part of my adaptive cruise or whatever. I also appreciate how you can add up to 4 (maybe 8 but I don't remember) individual cameras within the app so someday I can just find a spare 12v source in the rear and add a second.

    Nice. That’s my plan too.
    Is that the standard mount, or the magnetic one?
    Did it come with an SD card?
    Thx.

    Standard sticky mount - easy to mount and adjust, seems to stick on well
    No SD card

    I definitely recommend it! With dashcams I like to just ignore them and have them disappear into the vehicle so this is perfect.

    My Christmas vacation mods: swapped out my silver bumper valances for black ones, blacked out the 2 horizontal chrome pieces in the grille, and added a TRD Pro roof rack (also installed LED interior bulbs, but not pictured).

    Looks very sharp with the all black look. My first 4Runner was black, but oddly, it's a color I don't see too often anymore.

    Replaced the OEM grille with a cheap Chinese knock off. Surprisingly, found one on the Walmart website for less than $100 (free shipping). Didn't come with any instructions, but enough videos online gave guidance.

    Like any knock off, there is always some small issue. In this case, one of the "O's" looks a little wonky. From far back, you can't really tell. Up close you can tell it's a little "off." Overall, I'm pleased though.

    https://www.walmart.com/ip/2-Piece-...ta-4Runner-TRD-PRO-2020-2023-Black/1223066556

    I also added some white shackles from Amazon (can see in the pics). Really for aesthetics.

    The little divots in pic 4 allowed me to somewhat properly align the letters up after removing the red taping. I played around with the letters before taking the tape off, but either way, that "O" is gonna be wonky. I suspect that the issue has something to do with patents. A letter being "off" keeps the company who produced this to remain out of courts with Toyota.

    Applied a little mud - made a run to the dump which is about the only place you can drive in mud around here :(

    Beautiful pups! And Gunner crates are supposed to be the bomb, but the interior volume is so tiny for the space they take up in a vehicle. I went with a Ruffland Intermediate (the "SUV" model with a sloping back) for my girl, who is 60lbs. She would have been too tight in the Medium Gunner, and I would have had a hard time fitting the medium in the back of my 4Runner next to my sleeping pad, let alone the large. So for me, the Gunner unfortunately wasn't an option.

    Great looking rig! And we all know that silver is the fastest color. :evil: My silver beast looks quite similar, and I like that you've de-badged yours...I plan on doing that this weekend.

    Thanks! No debadging here - TE. My black utility trailer shows off the landfill mud much better, especially since I removed the mudflaps when I went to larger wider tires with an offset.

    Oh, my mistake. I didn't realize they came in a trim that didn't have some sort of badge between those rear windows. It just looks too bling for my taste having the silver "TRD Off Road" lettering on the side of a silver vehicle. That's why I want to remove mine.

    Thank you, Jedi! I agree with your comparison. I looked at the Ruffland too. I saw a review where a dog had chewed the plastic/rubber that covers one of the interior fasteners. This was a dealbreaker for me because the Malinois mix is a chewer (have the chew kit on the Gunner). We have an Impact crate (also with the chew kit) for him inside the house.

    I think I may have seen the same review, or similar. I'm very fortunate in that none of my Mals have been chewers (well people, but not plastic crates hahaha)...priers and benders...but never chewers. My current pup has figured out how to use her claws to open the latches of the generic Petco style crate I keep her in at home, but so far she hasn't gotten out of the Ruffland. She also loves it for some odd reason: I have both crates in my bedroom currently while I'm rearranging my truck, and when it's time to put her in the Petco crate she does it very begrudgingly to the point I have to give her a shove on the butt to get her in sometimes. The brand new Ruffland, on the other hand, she stands outside the door tail wagging waiting for me to open it and then runs in. It's bizarre, but evidently, she feels way safer/ more comfortable in the Ruffland.

    But here's a funny story about crates failing. Years back I was standing around with a group of other handlers, shooting the breeze, during a break. The agitator was also with us, and still wearing the bite suit. Out of nowhere a 70lb fur missile comes flying and takes the agitator out. We were all laughing so hard we couldn't get the dog off. The thought of an enterprising Mal just taking it upon himself to get an unscheduled bite in. After a few seconds someone said, "Whose dog is that anyways?" (when they're going 30mph it's tough to tell them apart). With great embarrassment, I realized it was my guy, Thor. I pulled him off and put him away, only to be told by a bystander that he'd launched himself out of his crate in the bed of my truck like the door wasn't even there when he saw the agitator chatting with us. Dogs seem to have one goal in life, embarrassing their handlers. Hahaha

    This was Thor. He's been gone for many years, but I still miss him. They are way too easy to get attached to, and Thor was a sweetheart.

    The Powertray is in and the bumper light bar and ditch lights are working. Very bright. Waiting for the power interrupt kit.
