I bet it would look good! If you have instagram check out the account "trdclb". It's a tacoma, but it's silver with color matched front and rear bumpers and I think it looks clean.

April 2022

Got in a quick one day/one night trip up to the local mountains with some buddies. Little wheeling, some shooting, and a couple drinks around the fire... Hard to beat.

Picked up an ARB dual compressor. I have to say this is probably my favorite mod to date (and most practical). I almost went the CO2 route for the speed of airing up, but glad I didn't. I've been more than happy with the performance of the ARB and it's nice not having to deal with tank refills before trips.


Decided to mount it behind the air box and was surprised no one makes a 4th gen mount for this location? Here's what I came up with:

Fantastic build so far, loving the attention to detail and the care you're putting into it! I may be partial though.... I also have a 2006 V8 Sport Edition in titanium metallic from Arizona!

Thanks, you've got a good looking 4Runner as well! Definitely hard to beat the V8 Sport Titanium Metallic combo. I need to find a paint matched grille for mine as well.

I bought a color matched Limited grill brand new from this dealer while they were having a sale and free shipping. Was around $160 shipped. WAY better than those cheap aftermarket ones IMO

Took a trip up to Mammoth Lakes for the holiday weekend. Ended up not being as crowded as I was expecting which was a nice surprise.
