Congrats on finding a good frame! As for plugs I ended up changing the boots too since they were cracked. I have a write-up with pics. The link is in my signature.

I've done a lot of work to mine in the month that I've owned it: changed the timing belt (Aisin kit purchased from Rock Auto), coolant flush, installed NGK iridium spark plugs, new PCV valve, replaced the cabin air filter, new tires, replaced a roof rack end cap that was causing a leak, replaced light bulbs, put in WeatherTech floor mats, and just changed engine oil for the first time tonight. I went with Napa full synthetic 5W-30 (since it was on sale and is re-branded Valvoline) and a Toyota OEM filter. Tomorrow I'll be swapping rear brake rotors and changing differential fluid.

In my case, my undercarriage has some minor rust so getting a professional undercoating would most likely just conceal any problem areas. After doing a lot of research, I think I'm going to use a product called Fluid Film on my undercarriage. It's a seasonal application that will protect your undercarriage from midwestern road salt, and runs about $10 a can.
Thank you and glad you were able to find yourself a clean 4Runner too! You've done so much work too it already, I have majority of the things you mentioned on my to do list as well. I've been reading more and more about fluid film as well and it seems to be a good option. I have to figure out the best way to apply it and clean up the surface rust a bit before hand.

Hopefully, they have their own car they did it to 5-10years ago and dont mind showing you what it looks like now... that might be the convincing I would need.

Im going try fluid film, just a path that will hopefully work for me. Just need to find a guy in chicagoland area with a shop and air compressor that can do a good fluid film job on my t4r.
I agree with you and thanks for your input. Please let me know if you manage to find someone. I'm currently looking as well and waiting on a few more quotes. If not, I'll have to do it myself somehow.

Today I finished installing a new Android based head unit (Atoto S8 Ultra) and a new sub since the original JBL sub was blown. I decided to go with the MB Quart DS1-204 sub and so far it's working great.

Here are the wiring harnesses and parts I used in case someone else is looking into using this radio (for JBL system):

- Metra 95-8210 Double DIN Installation Kit
- Metra TYTO-01 JBL Amplifier Interface Harness
- Metra Axxess ASWC-1 Universal Steering Wheel Control Interface
- Metra 70-8114 Steering Wheel Control Wire Harness with RCA

To get the steering wheel buttons to work right with the S8 model, make sure to set the wiring harness radio input setting to 22. This took me a while to figure out as the Axxess manual only mentions the settings going up to 18 only. I had to call their tech support to find out that it actually goes up to 23 now.

Also does anybody know what these pieces are for? I found them underneath the carpet when installing the sub. Should I be concerned?

Are they spacers for the suspension?

Look like random washers? Def not suspension spacers...

Will see, i may end up doing the fluid film myself too.

Today I changed the oil with Pennzoil Platinum high mileage 5w-30 and the oem filter at 169,974 miles. I'm debating whether I should replace every 5K miles or go higher.

Does anyone know if a 2003 V8 airbox will fit the 2006 V8 models? My airbox front clips are broken off and the previous owner just drilled a screw into the box to close it. I've found one in decent condition and was going to buy it, however, the seller mentioned that the 2003 airbox does not fit the 2006. How true is that? I figured I will get the box replaced once I tackle the spark plugs.
