+1 for BXBuilt, They're a little spendy, but there well worth the cost IMO. I got some headlights from him last summer and its night and day over the old projectors I had and pretty comparable to LED light bars (from what I've seen, I don't currently have one on my rig). They have RGB halo's too that are pretty cool if you like customizing the look of your rig

Last week me and my bud went and did the cargo area back window switch mod, and I went to Ye Olde Pick N Pull and got the plastic for the rear door, as mine was scratched and cracked, plus the center console lid off a '00 for my bud.

Planning to get the rest of that plastic to have the whole "new" cargo area w/ bigger storage, but haven't had time to do so. (ignore dangling switch it's temporary)


Finally finished getting all the LEDs in too, except for the cigarette lighter. PO somehow broke the bulb off in the socket, thankfully is replaceable and can be done somewhat easily.


Got a new PIEZO for the remote, and got a USB c outlet, both of which i hope to install soon.

My PNP list is looking pretty full right now, but they only have two third gens at the moment unfortunately.

Any tips for getting the back plastic off?

Also, anything for disconnecting the radio motor? I've got the fender flares so I don't know how to get the plastic to fold over to disconnect it.

BREAKING NEWS: I believe I have done a mod that is unprecedented on the forum. (or at least ive never seen any1 do it before idk lol)

I went to the PNP and stripped the entire cargo area out of a 2000, and a little dremel later, voila:

I'd say it worked out pretty well, just a few little gaps but nothing to fuss about. Overall, I'm happy with it.

I also installed the USB C but that's much, much less interesting.


(also the piezo but that's even less interesting)

Anyway, I'll be back sometime soon with some more updates hopefully.
Winter is on the way and I need to get all the major stuff I want done.

So, good news and bad news, despite that wreck, the 4runner somehow isn't totaled. the insurance is covering the ~4700$ repair. I went out and bought all the parts I needed for about 800 which I don't mind spending as it still runs. I don't expect to get it back anytime soon, but it's nice to know that I will get it back.

I was planning to pay out of pocket and ditch insurance if they didn't cover it. The only mechanical thing on the front end that needed to be replaced was the radiator; despite the impact it didn't push into anything behind it.

I really owe a lot to this 4runner, I was going 50mph and didn't sustain any injuries, cuts or even bruises.

A list of everything I needed (score for $800 total):
Fenders (L/R)
Headlight filler panels (L/R)
Hood
Headlights
01 Front bumper w/turn signals (fat lip which is sad)
Grille off an 02
Drivers airbag from a 97
Passenger airbag from a 96
new dashboard with panel
kick panel
fuse box cover
radiator
front radiator support
coolant reservoir

Glad to hear you're ok and you're getting the 4runner up and running again. Let me know if you need any help with deciding what to do. I build HID retrofits, so you may want to go ahead and do that. Also, I really like my aluminum radiator, but the stock ones work as well.

thanks for staying! it's going okay, body shop is being slow as usual, but everything is going to plan, thank god it's not over budget from what the insurance paid, got a few mods in the works as well:

-installing a auto dimming rearview mirror from a early 00's yukon (with temp and direction)
- got new sunvisors from a 98 es300 with mirrors and lights
-i need to install my fog light stalk because the fatlip has fog lights,
-also hoping to install the center dash console from a 99 so I have more areas for switches on the left side.

a lift, and some others that aren't quite ready.

just waiting to get it back at this point.

I'm excited though!

repair update: the body shop has continued to take their sweet time to get it done. I went down and looked at it yesterday, they have put on the fenders and that's about it.

I'm getting frustrated with them because before that, they had left the thing to sit in the sun for a month without the hood on it, which I was just delighted to learn about. (seriously?)
they left some of the parts out in the sun, left the headlights on the ground, but they sure were surprised it still ran after it sat for so long. I ended up leaving them a bad review on google and that's what got them to work on it, Hate to be negative but I've got to get to work somehow.

But: in the meantime I've been getting to work gathering parts for more little mods to do:

-interior hatch release handle (oem door handle from a 1999)
-interior hatch light that opens when I open the hatch
-heated seats (with switches from a 2002 infiniti qx4) (this one is still in progress)
-oem headrest holders for when the back seats are folded

I also am going to go buy another hood and bumper tomorrow, thankfully this bumper is not a fat lip, but still 290$ from my wallet for both and a radiator shroud.

If anyone's looking for a silver hood or green fat lip bumper, let me know!

the 4runner /should/ be done hopefully by the end of next week (according to them) if I'm lucky, which probably won't happen, but a man can dream!
