kevinpt's 4runner

just got my 09 limited and wanted to make a thread of my mods to come, advice, and help.
so to start this is what i got friday morning



most recent


this is my 09 limited 4x4 with leather seats, nav, jbl, double deck cargo, and Xreas(removed and installed 5100's with tacoma trd offroad coils set on .85 and fj rear coils. i got it with 45k(71k as of 7/15) miles and no scratches.
today was my first full day with the truck so i did a few small things. first was clear plasti dip on rear TOYOTA emblem and 4runner emblem. i did learn not to plasti dip in the wind. i had a lot of over spray.

Nice looking 4R, any other big plans?

Usually toyotapartszone.com is about as cheap as it gets and they're typically reliable. You may save a dollar somewhere else but with shipping you're gonna be close.

went to the park near me the first week and tested 4 low.
the curb i climbed was a railroad tie. pulled up to it and had about half an inch of space between it and the skid plate. it climbed in 4low diff open just fine, when i went to go back down i dropped it on the front skid plate.


also got a smittybilt tow hook.


plasti dip emblems and grill. emblems are clear and grill is black. still need to take the grill apart so i can take the front emblem off to do a different color.





some might know but i swapped to LED's in the running boards.

V LED's

194_hp_w_5k



and to show the color difference

I love the limited wheels as well. Looks good, Kevin. I especially like the way you did your emblems.

That's almost better than my articulation on top of a rock J/K! I actually admire that neighborhood you live it, looks very pretty.

yep. it was the only way to do it. i found out you cant mask over plastidip to do 2 tone so i had to take it off. turned out great after the 3rd try. first can was bad so i had to use another can

THAT is one clean Limited! Looks great man, and if you're serious about getting rid of those rims, there are plenty of people on here looking for them! I love mine, especially after i got them powdercoated black looking forward to following the rest of your build, great job so far.

speaking of this, and sorry Kevin if i'm intruding on your build, just thought this would be something remotely helpful to add. After the paint job on the wheels, I have people ask me all the time where I got my wheels from. They look clean and good enough that people really think they're aftermarket wheels. You're very good with plastidip it seems, check out Gaterose' thread and his BBS wheels with the gunmetal-colored plastidip, would look great on your silver.

How much was it to paint them or did you do it. If I keep them I might get them painted or powder coated, just don't know what color
