    Thanks! It is very intimidating to look at. As with any install, took my time. Getting the steering to unseat took a bit of "coaxing." Something I saw in a couple of vid was putting duct tape on the clock spring so it doesn't rotate any when putting the steering wheel back on. I did that. Once I got it seat back on, tightened them bolts back down, and rest you see.

    A few more odds and ends to tie up but finished the base for the sleeping platform just in time for this weekend. Rain in the forecast but that's what car camping is for ‍:bananadance:

    The base with the stickers will be a slide out on the left hand side under the platform for BRCC in the mornings and whiskey at night.

    I installed the KTJO phone mount. I like that it just clips on and feels pretty secure, although I may not use it a lot, since most of my phone needs are addressed by either Bluetooth connection or Android Auto.

    I also put beefier double-sided tape on these things, since their original tape wasn't holding well in the cooler fall weather. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B09DVTJVFV?ie=UTF8
    I used the clear, thick Gorilla tape instead.

    LED DRL conversion project last night!
    Basically a visual or aesthetic upgrade that I wanted to do.
    Used Diode Dynamics 9005 HP48 LED bulbs (about 210 lumens/bulb per the website) so as not to blind others.
    Got a wiring T-Harness from FBC that is a PNP solution to get the correct wiring/voltage to the bulbs.
    Super happy with the results and it looks OEM in my opinion!

    I know the gloss is unpopular, but for $20 on alibaba it covers the silver edges peeking through the matte panels on the sides and looks kinda nice. As long as no one touches it.

    Thanks man. That's a switch I installed to control some grill lights I made. Although I don't really ever turn them on, it was a fun project at least. Made it out of some of those LED strip lights and some aluminum angle iron that I pie cut and bent to the shape of the grill. Never got a really good picture of them but here's a crappy one, lol:

    My year 4R has LED hi/lo beams but uses a halogen bulb for the DRL as the OEM setup. This 9005 bulb is often used as a bright beam bulb in other applications but that would be too harsh on other oncoming drivers during the day. So, Toyota reduces the voltage to the DRL's so they are essentially running at half power (6volts instead of the normal 12volts).
    Halogen bulbs will run ok at 6volts, but LEDs will not. So if someone doesn't want yellowish lights for DRLs, it has not been an easy option to just replace the yellowish halogen bulbs with the crisper and more "modern" white light of LEDs.
    This simple wiring harness allows you to use LED's in place of the halogen bulbs by changing the voltage supplied from 6volts to 12volts. That's all the harness does.
    The selection of LED bulb such as the Diode Dynamics HP48 bulb is important because it is a "low power" bulb. It emits the clean "white" light of an LED but not in a blinding amount of power.
    So, really it is a 2-step process to "do it right". One, install the harness to get the voltage correction. And two, select an LED bulb that is acceptable for a DRL application.
    The purpose of this mod is basically for appearance purposes only.
    Some may not find the value in it, but I'm sure others will - like me!!!

    Here is a DIY thread about this but @ljerr2 summed it up perfectly. I also did this since I think those lights should have been LED from Toyota since the headlights and fog lights are on mine (Not sure if LED fogs/headlights are a 2020+ addition or an ORP option).

    https://www.4runners.com/threads/my-2022-t4r.25781/#post-346114

    Edit:
    For about $15 you can make two DIY harnesses.

    As far as I know Toyota uses same 12v as a pulse so halogen filament doesn't get to full brightness.

    That's a great question and something I never really thought about till now. There might be a workaround but I feel like Toyota would make it difficult to do so. I have a 2010, so it might be different than yours, but I'd imagine that it would have to do with modifying the weight sensor in the passenger seat. I'll look into it though

    Oooh look, another mod.....

    I believe there are sensors in the passenger seat. So, if a person is under a certain weight (like your dog or toddler), the airbag will not deploy in the event of an accident. But I don't think you can manually turn it off forever. I know there were cars like that about 10/20 yrs ago, you could stick a key in near the glove box to turn the passenger airbag on/off.

    that depends. 2014 to 2019 and some 2020 uses PWM for the DRL. some 2020 and all forward reduced voltage to 6V.
