    Does anyone know which wires on the factory in-dash switches are for the dash light circuit? Adding a new switch and need to tap in for the lights on that one.

    Any rear spring suggestions for only a 1.5" ish lift in the rear for a 3rd gen - I've got adjustable CO's up front and will only go up to 265/75/17 max - at 265/70/17 as of now. Not going with bumpers or anything.

    You could go with 99 Springs, they are 1" higher than all other years. You could also go with a spacer as well. Not sure of a stand alone 1.5" rear spring.

    Yeah it's an option I've considered - those and possibly FJ springs.

    Weird question:

    I have a friend who bought a 2021 T4R. She wants to swap in a Pro grille and add some grille lights. The only issue is that she wants pink or purple. Anyone know if they sell anything other than amber/amber smoked/white/white smoked lights?

    I told her that she may have to just get the white ones and throw a pink or purple film

    OME906 are nice progressive coils that gave me just under 2" in the rear and no spare tire and stock skids; they're meant for stock weight.

    This was last year before adding my swing out bumper and the 906's -

    20201007_142332.jpg

    @Tour991 now has them as I moved up to OME890 due to the added weight.

    Since adding exterior storage, full camp gear, and our 65lb fur child, I may move up to Superflex coils.

    Here's how it sits at the moment with extra weight and the 890's -

    @Dalandser here is how my 99 is sitting on the OME906 that I got from @Kwikvette. I am running Icon 2.0s with them and am on 265 75 16s

    Honestly that is probably going to be her best bet. I don't think I have seen any 4Runner specific ones that other than white or amber.

    Might want to put a multimeter backprobe and see if it’s getting a weird pulse signal although that might only respond to pressure
