    No , but I have an idea why Toyota never decided to put them in in the first. they didn’t want to spend the overtime waiting for the tech to tighten the lower bolt!!

    I put this one on: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0B59WYW7Z . I'm sure there are other options.
    One of my prior posts has a pic. IMO, it looks great but took a lot of patience to put on. If you have tint/PPF/large decal skills it will be easier I suppose.

    A few notes: That particular one is matte black vinyl, which means you can see through the stars and between stripes, but no light gets through the decal part. Definitely install it wet. And cut the backing in half (between the stripes so that you don't actually cut the decal - installing as 2 parts makes getting it lined up in the space of the window easier.

    Thanks! I used the wiring harness that came with the light bar. I purchased the OEM style switch separately and wired it in. Good luck wiring your pod lights!

    Done mostly cosmetic things but it’s a start. Got a tonneau cover (thank you Truck Alterations), N-fabs, mudguards and the cab side rail. Washed quickly today and finished off with Griots Poly Gloss as I’ll do a full ceramic in a couple of weeks when I have time. Next upgrade is the Pro Grill maybe for Xmas.

    lol thank you. It’s Swisstrax flooring and I repainted the wall in Porsche colors. Put in surround sound Sonos system and just redid the lighting. Have about 75k total lumens in lighting there currently. It’s Florida and we don’t have man caves just man garages. 76D3021E-BDE5-4DEB-BA1D-37417B2F74FD.jpg

    I'd like to hear how those DuraTracs work for you in MN. So far it's been my favorite all-around tire I had on my 4Runner but still scary on ice. Did fantastic on snow, dirt, and rocks (I don't do any crazy OR driving) and they have more sipes that most M/T tires, but I still wanted more (and yes, more sipes may mean they don't hold up on the rocks so well). Will need to think about this for next winter as I'm going to run the factory tires for a bit.

    I had Duratracs in Wyoming because my MT's were just plain dangerous. Brought them with me to Colorado when we moved. Awesome tire!

    Got my truck back from the shop, it was a big one.

    -Full driveline rebuild (u-joints), and new carrier bearing.
    -Bilstien 5100 on all four corners
    -front struts set to 1.1” (third clip I think?)
    -Headstrong 1.5” progressive add-a-leaf
    -Headtsrong taco-lean spacers on drivers side (front 1/4”/rear 1/2”)
    -Falken Wildpeak AT3W LT265/75r16

    truck drives better than new, rides great and is a little stiffer. Not a huge difference in ride quality going from SL rated Cooper’s to the LT Falken. With the Canopy and bike rack I still maintain ~1” of rake. While the spacers did help the lean, the rear has about 1/4” of lean still whereas the front end is level. Also installed some Total Chaos bed stiffeners I’ve had for a while. I really like how it makes my tailgate feel more solid when I close it. Truck rides great, stoked on the small lift and new tires. Don’t forget to check your u-joints, I let my forward-most one go a little too far!
