Sliders and Eimkeith PCK. More confident when I go off road around the rocks and PCK feels awesome going around the bends.

Least favorite mod is my Daystar level kit. Though it did force me to replace all the worn suspension parts, it doesn't offer a great highway experience without modified UCA. I'm going to go back to stock since I don't offroad. It does look better, but not worth it to me.

Great one that I forgot about. Doing the doors & adding the Bazooka SW from my old Xterra made a night & day difference. Stereo sounds amazing now.

CarPlay stereo has been great for me. I purchased my truck shortly after moving to a new city and the maps are super helpful

Mine was my FJ Cruiser wheels.

I had stock limited wheels before, and was considering running 265/70r18 P rated tires. Its a 32.6" tire, and I wouldn't need new wheels, so I was trying to convince myself it would work despite no one having tested it. Then I saw a set of 4x FJ Cruiser wheels on Facebook for 200$. Grabbed them, and instead am running 255/80r17s.

I love the way the FJ wheels look, and the 255s are the perfect size for what I do. Now I just need my bumper to get in, and to find a shop that can get a good alignment!

Second vote for head unit with back up camera.

Totally worth the 1 day of work. It's one of the few mods that gets used every single time I drive.

Probably the most useful was installing the 3 degree retard exhaust cam gears. Really helped put some pep back in the great white pig. Sliders, skids, front bumper, hitch tire carrier, 33ís all add up to make a slow 4Runner. The exhaust gears helped a lot.

Now Iím waiting to hear back from HP tuners to see if the 4R can be tuned with their hardware. Should make things even better.

Thumbs up sound-proofing

Bluesky - tell us about how you did, or had done, the sound-deadening. I'm all ears ...

I dig my Satoshi grill and the stance provided by Spidertrax spacers but those aren't functional mods.

A highly underrated (and relatively inexpensive) upgrade is tinting the front side windows, especially if you live in a warm climate.

Same for me. I got a Sony with Carplay and added a backup camera. Now I've added an inexpensive sub and it sounds really good. Plan to replace door speakers with aftermarket sometime soon.
