    The boy gets new shoes. These things are big, holy moly! I'll consider myself lucky if I get 15 mpg on the highway.

    400w anytime harness. Crazy how small a gauge Toyota uses for wiring.

    actually I think I should be good. I checked the part numbers and they’re all part of the 40th anniversary.

    wheel caps: PT280-35221-5F
    Wheels: PTR56-89210-F5

    There’s another set of bronze trd wheels with the red trd center cap that’s another part number…I think that’s weird.

    Looks sharp! You have stock gears? And what mpg are you getting?

    Oooh look, another mod.....
    I had the windows tinted even darker. The guy was a mobile tinter (he did great work at an excellent price, so if anyone in the Fort Worth area needs a recommendation, reach out). He said the tint from the dealership was 20% and he could put 5% on top of it on all the windows. It saved him a lot of time (and me money) by not removing the old tint. Yup, I'm rolling illegal as hell. But I don't care.

    All the cars I've had over the last 15 years have had 5% all the way around. So spare me your lectures about the law or safety. In Texas, I need max protection from the sun. Oh, and I got the SloRunna washed/detailed:

    15? Surely you jest, sir! Try 13!

    Kiiiiiiiiiidding, you can pull off 19 - 21. Well, I can with my Falken's. It's all about how you drive and your driving conditions.

    Yes stock gears. Don’t feel the need to regear. 12-14 mpg.

    My first “add on” to my 17-day old 4R. The Maszupir cargo mat from Amazon. They have other ones with similarly weird names at the same price. It installed really easily, the floor mat has a few Velcro strips on the front end, the back-of-the-seat mats have Velcro on the top. Very secure. I’m pretty excited because I use the cargo area religiously almost every other weekend for camping.

    Before you cut it, you should consider whether you want to use it with the rear seat bottoms removed. That buys another six inches or more. (You can get the seat bottoms out in 15 minutes or less, and back in almost as fast).

    So got my windows tinted a few days ago. Only issue was the back glass. Guy had issues doing it. But he recommended a guy in my hometown to tackle it. So hopefully it'll be fixed on Wednesday. He uses same brand of tint.

    But guy who did my installation did a great job.

    EDIT: Forgot to say it's 5% doors and around and 30% on front. Totally illegal, but helps to know local constabulary (especially when you're parked at the back of the HQ lol).

    Do you have pictures of those mounts? Link? I was curious about how to mount on crossbars without drilling them.

    Oooh look, another mod.....
    My upcoming mods: LIGHTS!

    I ordered LED red tail lights, an LED red 3rd center mount brake light and a pair of low-beam LED bulbs for the headlights. I didn't want to order (or need to, since the high beams are LED) a complete headlight replacement.

    The red will blend nicely to give a complete cohesive look (I can't stand the clear/chrome tail light and 3rd brake light).


    I should have them shipped to me and installed by next Saturday. I gotta stop spending money...... LOL.

    The head/taillights came from here: https://www.headlightrevolution.com/custitem_cat_facet_application/4Runner?keywords=4Runner Pretty good prices and lots of options.
    The 3rd brake light came from here: https://www.4runnerlifestyle.com/pr...light-replacement?_pos=1&_sid=4331af775&_ss=r

    Sure: https://us.tredoutdoors.com/products/tred-mounting-baseplate

    Got two plates and two sets of pins, they fit my Bunker boards nicely.

    TREDMountingBaseplate_700x.jpg

    Narrow stainless cable ties are threaded through the slots under the outer hardware covers, two per plate.

    Of course I yeeted a couple self tappers in first for good measure, but you could skip that step.

    Lubricated the front brakes to eliminate squealing. How much drying time does the copper antiseize need between coats? Do I need to add some to the brake fluid reservoir too? :confused:
