    Haha! That must be nice! My bank would be PISSED if they saw what I did to their 4Runner! (Cut body mounts, welded/frame modifications) haha. Only a few more payments for us then I am doing a body mount Relocation AND the fun will Really begin! Congrats!

    We Installed the Meso dome lights (front and middle) and we have LOVED them.... They are bright white but we really only use them in Red mode. Our 8 year old insists on always having the light on at night so she can do whatever 8 year olds do when we are driving around at night and the Red does not kill my night vision while driving. 100% worth it for us

    Taking advantage of above-freezing temps, replaced the phone mount with an ISaddle ‎CH-384. It comes with two magnetic heads, but I prefer to use my existing Garmin clip. The pre-applied adhesive tape on the base was crap, so I had to replace it with two strips of 3M molding tape.

    Also installed a Rexing V3Plus dash cam with front and rear lenses:

    Noticed an occasional chirp coming from somewhere on my drivers side a few of months ago. It started shortly after I replaced my rotors and pads. I thought it might be a bad rotor at first but it went away so I forgot about it.......

    Until yesterday when that occasional chip turned into a constant squeal. Applying the brakes would not change the noise. So it must be a wheel bearing, I thought. Weird.......I haven't heard of anyone else replacing a wheel bearing at 80,000 miles. But I really hope it's a front wheel bearing and not a rear one. Rear wheel bearing looks like a pain in the ass to replace.

    Took off the front drivers side tire to see if I could replicate the sound. Yep, there it is......thankfully. But the sound wasn't coming from the hub. Looked around and I found that the anti-rattle clip from my brake pads had snapped in half and one side of it was just barely touching my rotor. As I would drive, it would squeal incredibly loud for such little contact.

    Ordered a new brake hardware kit for $13 and had the broken clip replaced in 5 min.

    No more squeal :yes:

    Got ceramic tint installed today all the way around, and installed black black overlays for the chrome pieces on the front grill.

    My 5 year old likes to have the light on as well lol. I am heavily debating the center dome light from Meso as well. High quality stuff

    Replaced the interior light bulbs with LEDs. I chose a reputable brand to reduce the risk of frying the body control module. Map lights are Diode Dynamics DD0031P. Dome light is Diode Dynamics DD0292S. Cargo lights are Diode Dynamics DD0299P.

    Comparison of DD cargo light LED vs stock filament bulb:

    Replaced the PCV valve with Standard Motor P/N V504. Looks to be a repackaged OEM part with Toyota P/N etched on the wrench flat. "Shake test" with the removed valve (possibly factory original) shows the poppet doesn't move as freely.

    The red dome light looks nice. But they never seems to have anything in stock.
    Waited indefinitely without any communication.
    So went with Philips 30MM instead.

    Since I am old school, I installed a cd player in the glove box. I like the option to listen to both CD's and music I downloaded to the flash drive. There are times I just want to put in a cd rather than having to download every time. I put a hub in so I can switch without having to manually unplugging any devices (cd player, 3 flash drives). Little disappointed that Toyota deleted the cd player in 2020 (purchased the 4Runner in 2020).

    It is a MP3 cd player. It plugs in the MP3 port of the head unit (stock). I relocated the port from the front of the dash into the glove box cut out. Next to the MP3 port is the USB port for power only.

    "Cleaning" out the back a little and entered coordinates for an upcoming trip into the nav. (Have to go south to Portland to get fingerprinted and photo'd for my Oregon non-resident CHL). Several relatives in SoCal have health issues (1 terminal, 1 maybe, and one surgical), so we are tagging on a visit and seeing my daughter in Flag.

    Besides, need my annual Tommy's Burger fix!

    I still use my CD player sometimes. I surprised the new unit supports 3 flash drives. Mine only supports 2 (2019). Do the new units still have the 9999 file limit?

    Picked up the Greenlane Automotive sliders I ordered back on Black Friday. I know some will turn up their nose at aluminum sliders but after weighing the pros and cons of my use case I decided that these would do what I wanted. Quality is top notch, plan to get them coated in a good quality bed liner once I get home. They're sitting in my hotel room atm lol

    I can only use one device at a time. That is why I included the MP3 hub so I can switch.
