    2014 Neglected by the previous owners 2020 is an abused former rental... 2023 New I've been buying above my pay grade ☹️
    Some inconsiderate narcissist a-holes let go of a shopping cart about 10 feet up an incline from my parked 7-month old, pristine condition 4R.

    I've got video. Wish me luck with their auto and/or renter's insurance.

    Did an oil change tonight, lubed all grease fittings, new wiper blades and reapplied antiseize on all skid plate bolts, etcs. So nice not fighting stuck bolts. Keep up on the antiseize boys and girls, you’ll thank yourself down the road!

    Watching his review.
    The amount of excitement and affection that car care nut has for the 5th gen 4Runner is unbelievable. I wonder why he doesn't have one, somebody tell him to buy one before it's gone.
    I wish I could go back in time and buy myself a brand spanking new TJ Wrangler. Because my excitement and affection for the TJ is also next level

    Black overlays. Black tailpipe.
    Does anyone ask for a propeller/drive shaft lubrication at their service department? I’m trying to follow Car Care Nut’s recommendation.

    At least you got 7 months. I think I had 1 day. Parked in the empty corner of a parking lot, was in the store for 10 minutes. Came out to a scuff on one of my doors.

    From the reading I've done looks like the key fob debacle was for 4Runners manufactured I believe November-December 2022. That's my take but might be wrong! Possible other models of Toyota were included in this timeframe!

    When I called the dealer to set up programming for the fob and cutting the key he said he'd try and get the 2nd fob/key covered under warranty....nope! When he submitted it they declined. Bastages!

    The side rails do not but the deflector does.
    Installed a strip of 3m tape under the lip and I'll check it a few times a year.
    The rack is solid no motion and the front foot design locks into the rain gutter, so there is not rattle or bounce. I expect no wear on the tape over time.
    It is a very well designed mounting system.

    I suppose some people do, but it's an easy job to do yourself. It takes longer to find the zerks than it does to pump the grease. If you decide to try it, I recommend a firmly latching connector like this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00H7LPKKU?ie=UTF8. It will work with any standard grease gun.

    My '23 4R Limited, my daughter's '23 4R TRD ORP, and my wife's '23 RAV4 all came with 2 key fobs...however, I seem to remember reading from a year or two ago that some vehicles were only getting one key fob, because of "supply chain issues"...

    there was a time that Toyota would give only 1 fob when purchasing the car but the 2nd fob was included in the purchase as well (it would just be delivered months later because of microchips shortage). So the dealership shouldn’t have to charge you for it. It’s not a warranty claim because it’s not a defect on the key fob, it was just never given to you. You should contact Toyota corporate and tell them you want your 2nd key fob and/or a refund from the dealership for what they charged you

    Took me about a week to do but I finally finished my roof rack. Built it myself. Figured it would be a good first welding project. If I had to do it again I would just make regular 90s bending was a lot of extra work and math.
