    thats a 2.5” lift? Looks way higher than that unless the pictures skews things.

    Yeah, and they didnt even break it up to be remotely convenient for an oil change. The piece I took out required loosening the air damn in front and taking out fasters on the piece behind it. Both ends were sandwiched.

    Regular carpet is plastic made to look like carpet too ;) Unless you get that fancy cotton berber carpet or something. On a serious note though, it’s durable stuff. We have some of it in the wheel well of our 18 highlander, and it doesn't even get dirty.

    Replaced the fan belt and idler pulleys (including the one on the tensioner). With almost 142k miles, the old belt had many cracks on it. All the original idler pulleys were rusted, but the bearings were in good condition and rotated smoothly.

    AMWts8A4b7Ty42MLu_OYdBYPtUZA0gJ3TVKAqnyE_96d8deceabc7d7feeb68dbe17b3d6597e95b7a03.jpg AMWts8AKppqe3EUtM-p9cvUGPvul_vZ7SUmgPWvt_708c30a6d77e2af396cbfe6e7388bee7d6572b92.jpg

    The oil cooler crowds the lower pulley, so there was no room for a socket on the pulley bolt. I had to use the double-wrench method, held together with some duct tape to prevent slippage:

    AMWts8B1mE01pnwdIHWgdY-cdSvl9Gik92IzibiP_6b84028b6ad14922eed7e1fdbb3e216aa86e3d2f.jpg

    New belt and pulleys put in. Also replaced the radiator cap as cheap preventative maintenance:

    AMWts8DlGIqk8QXPbjCHvDanrbh_21r3Rro7-a1o_759bfceedff97c888cdbc3ee30c3b36c65595909.jpg AMWts8BJBDrVlUGzjS54RsGfcsImfz3598UtJaLa_8648bffb76bb63494254c5d343bb9c84ca15c49c.jpg

    Parts list:
    Belt: Toyota 90916A2015 or Bando 7PK2150
    Upper idler x2: Continental 49127 (made in Canada)
    Upper idler bolt x2: Toyota 90105A0126
    Lower idler: Continental 49129 (made in Canada)
    Tensioner pulley: same Continental 49129, but re-use the LH-threaded factory bolt
    Radiator cap: Motorad T37

    installed a heritage grille and some raptor lights. I was very hesitant to do this but honestly I think all of the 4runners should come with the heritage grille.
    (pardon the bug guts on the valence)

    That’s awesome! I didn’t mean to end up with two silvers, I really wanted the Army Green, but the only one they had didn’t have KDSS so I settled for silver.

    Hmmm, what’s that smell? Oh just soaked sound deadening on the passenger front and rear. I’m not sure if water is getting in or I spilled something a while back but damn this sucks.

    Where did you tap in for the Raptor Light Power? I used the EFI-2 spot in the main fuse box in the engine bay but the lights would randomly turn on...

    Thanks! The harness I got wasn't long enough to reach the cabin fuse box and I was trying to use the engine bay box and not add another connection to extend the harness. I suppose I'll just do that.

    has anyone noticed the change in the filter pleating on the Fran synthetic oil filter, if you use Fram, (XG10158) recently?

    The new ones have a fuzzy cotton look to them compared to the one I bought in Nov 2022. Weird…

    Elka 2.5 DC 3" lift, SPC UCA's, Toytech rear springs, ARB Diff Breather, RSG Rock Sliders & front Skid. C4 front bumper with High Clearance sides and Warn Winch.
    Today was just a washing but yesterday I was finally able to get up to R4T in Denver and had a complete set of Elka's installed giving it a 3" lift along with SPC UCA's, 700lb Toytech rear springs, ARB Diff breather, bump stops, and KMC 17" wheels with Mickey Thompson Baja Boss A/T's mounted in 285/70R17's. Looks and rides so much nicer now!
