-Replace steering wheel
-Replace front seat cover
-New radiator
-New tires
-New rims
-New heater core
-New front window
-Lift 2-3 lift
-New shocks or coilovers
-Reverse camera

Welcome to T4R.org, a fantastic forum as you might already know.

Curious, what was the motivation for the switch? I'd likely be in a Tacoma if I didn't have two little ones...

I switched because the 4Runner is more useful for me. I need the space for my two niece and brother dog in the back when we go hiking or camping.

Good luck with the new rig.

Replacing the heater core is - by far - the most PITA job Iíve done on the 4Runner. Total dash removal required.

While you're in there, get the Lower ball joints knocked out too. Between those (and their bolts) and the radiator, you're addressing the biggest issues that can stop you in your tracks.

And from personal experience, doing all the control arm bushings makes a MASSIVE difference in ride quality.

Good luck with your new ride.
