    I bought 2 OEM black rails during New Years Sale. They were about $150 a piece. I waited & waited for some to go on sale but I missed the one opportunity to get some off Tacoma world. I agree - it was way easier to go & buy some new ones. I wanted it done & not worry about plasti dip or painting the silver ones. I have the parts # at home. I will post that p/n once I get off work. The black OEM Lugs look great & the black rails means I have no more chrome!!! Woohoooo!! :transformer:

    Plus I have been buying my parts from Joseph Airport Toyota. For some reason that Parts Store has had great prices. Stevinson Toyota West here in Denver has great prices too, but Airport Toyota has been better!

    Cali raised roof rack is installed. The noise is better than stock with a Yakama basket. Very happy with their product. If there was thing they could improve is the ability to add mounting plates by having more cross bar mounting holes.

    Hey Kolter45, thanks for the tip. I think that will end up much easier and will probably be a superior solution. I greatly appreciate it!

    Put in a Kidde 2.5lb 1A10BC fire extinguisher on a Refined Cycle P/N FM2-K25a mount. Had to trim the inboard corner of the Husky floor liner to clear the seat mount bolts. Refined Cycle changed the design from 3/16" aluminum to 3/32" steel without updating their listing, resulting in a slight weight increase that's dwarfed by the extinguisher itself.

    Mostly just enjoy driving it around since the picking it a a couple weeks ago, but received my blackout kit from 4Runner Lifestyle today. I’m not sure how I feel about a full blackout with the nautical blue, but knew I wanted to at least black out the weird added chrome on the latest TRD Off Road grill.

    The snow lol. Ended up running into a group of Jeep guys to help get the Ranger out. Ranger had stock craptastic tires and kept getting sucked off the trail. We couldn't get him back onto the trail with just the Runner.

    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.
    My Nautical Blue is totally blacked out. I like the look.Clean in NC.jpg

    ^Element sticks are far less effective than traditional extinguishers, especially when there's some wind. You also need to be a lot closer to the fire. Even then they can be useless in some situations:





    The Element brackets are nice though. Sturdy and flexible at low temperatures. I use two of them to hold a water depth-checking broomstick on my Tacoma for wheeling trips:

    Yes, not AS effective, however, takes up WAAAAYYY less room. I have one stowed under the front of my passenger seat attached to the Desert-Does-It Molle underseat panels. You don't even know it's there unless you lean down and look under the seat. I have a standard / traditional extinguisher on my rear window Molle panel.

    ^Looks like you'll need 2-3 E100 sticks at a cost of $250-360 to equal the performance of a single 2.5lb extinguisher. Plus you need to be uncomfortably close to the fire to use it. Better than having no extinguisher at all, that's about it.

    Looks good! just curious but what front camera is that? I am trying to find a better front camera for the anytime backup camera than the one that comes with the kit.

    That does look nice. It looks like you’ve got an SR5 through right? The silver front valence on the TRD off road is part of what gives me pause. I’ve got the kit already though so figure I can always take if off if I’m not feeling it.

    That’s the OEM front camera that was available starting in 2022 (I think).

    Thank you and yes it's an SR5. One of the things I like about the SR5 is the body color bumpers, no valances. In my opinion black or body color valances look so much better.

    Got a little dirty after a weekend of camping so took some time to get her back to normal. Overspent on the Viair compressor but it sure looks nice and the bag is convenient. Had to adjust the passenger preload so I’m back within 1/4” driver to passenger heights.

    Do you have a pic where its made in?

    Falken Wildpeak AT3W are 2 ply side wall right? Not 3 ply? I bet it would give relatively comfy ride than the 3ply KO2s I had before.

    Installed the MESO 4Runner Puddle Switch Kit:

    https://mesocustoms.com/collections...nner-puddle-switch-kit?variant=32274964840561

    Wasn't too bad of an install.

    I was going to reroute the Auto Highbeam button to the lower open slot and place the new Puddle Switch button similar to this from the MESO website:

    4runner button auto.jpg Screenshot_20230223_163625_Chrome.jpg


    But the edges/slot of Auto Highbeam button area different and didn't fit into the open slot at the bottom. But puddle button did fit at the bottom open slot. So guess it stays there. Took about 1.5 hrs to finish up.
