Did you add these to leather seats or cloth? Wondering how the install went.

12.3" 1920x720 Automotive Display Car Dashboard IPS Stretched Bar Screen HDMI VGA LVDS Controller Board C123HAN01.1-in Mobile Phone LCD Screens from Cellphones & Telecommunications on AliExpress

to fit where the OEM gauges are. The fun part is translating mechanical inputs (speedo is still analog, right?) to digital and the vast amount of programming to customize the look. But it would be 100% custom, fully modern, the sky is the limit in regards to information available to be displayed.

This would be a long term project just for the fun of it (to me), and would hinge on my desire to learn programming.... something I've put off (other than occasional dabbling) for 30 years now.

There's nothing more modern than going faster. 4.88 gears in the rear? I know you already have the Hellcat but everyone knows it's fast. Nobody expects a 20 year old Toyota SUV to go fast lol.

I looked at those Durangos for a while to, that and the new Jeeps that put out insane power as well. I decided against it since 1. they are huge and 2. I'll bet they don't take to mileage all that well.

4.88s might be a bit much for my 265/75 tires, but I did consider 4.56 if those are available. The problem there is the cost vs what you get.

With the 2.1 pulley on the blower and meth injection the 4Runner is pretty damn fast for what it is. I've surprised several of the kids in turbo civics around here LOL.

Well, you asked for more info. Doing a little more digging because I like electronics, there are a couple car-dashboard projects out there already. One running on RaspberryPi, another on Arduino. You could probably be all-in parts costs for under $300 (including a donor gauge cluster), so not exactly a costly project.

It's Computer time though, not Wrenching time. Having split my life between those 2 they offer completely different joys. If you're aching to Wrench, this isn't the project. It'd be a VERY different and unexpected mod... I don't think Anyone still thinks LED lighting is cool anymore, do they?

You can always snag 4.56 gears from a 1st Gen Tacoma (4cyl 5speed, usually).
Door code will read: B04A

The front and rear diffs will bolt right into a 3rd gen, and you can have 4.56's for pennies on the dollar vs a rebuilt set.

Thanks for the info on the 4.56s and thanks for the ideas from everyone.

I think I'm gonna start with some simple light upgrades, look at the heated seats, and maybe push button keyless entry if I get motivated.
