Ultimate camping mod- rear window up / down and hatch pop with ignition off!

4th and 5th Gen ULTIMATE CAMPING MOD!





Several years ago I got sick of having to crawl up to the front, put the key in the ignition and roll the rear window up or down to regulate heat while camping in my 4R, so I developed a kit that allows you to roll the rear window up and down with the ignition off as well as pop the rear hatch while camping.

I am offering kits (with detailed instructions) for sale in two configurations that allow you to do the below:

(video is from a 4th gen, operation is identical)
YouTube


Option 1 (the original kit) $55 Shipped

This kit allows you to install the switch / button where you want it.



*Note, kits supplied with a slightly different wire than shown. I switched to a smaller wire for easier installation*

Upgrades are available to use the flush mount switch below. Let me know if this is something you want



Option 2: (Hobby Box Kit) $95 Shipped
Electronics are housed within a hobby box for ease of installation and hiding it when not camping.




Option 3: (Blacked Out Hobby Box Kit) $115 Shipped
Electronics are housed within a hobby box for ease of installation and hiding it when not camping. Includes all black flush buttons which are less likely to get bumped while camping causing window to go up / down etc. Also has a black expando over the cable for a super clean look. Note image shows a connector on other end; in this case, there will be ~6 feet of expando and then the rest is just regular wire. No connector is included.




Option 4: (Blacked out Hobby Box Kit with Connector) $135 Shipped
Electronics are housed within a hobby box for ease of installation and hiding it when not camping. Includes all black flush buttons which are less likely to get bumped while camping causing window to go up / down etc. Also has a black expando over the cable for a super clean look. Also has a connector where you drill a hole on panel, feed wires through then on the back side, a jam nut keeps it in place. This allows you to quickly have the box ready to go whenever you want.







These kits include everything you need:
  • Harness A
  • Harness B
  • (pre terminated connectors on each harness)
  • Up-Down DPDT Switch
  • Momentary SPST Button
  • 6 zip ties
  • 2 spare Toyota panel clips (just in case you damage yours when removing rear door panel)
  • Full instructions
  • Velcro for retaining the box on within the jack compartment (for hobby box only)


FAQ


1. What years is this designed for?
All 4th and 5th gen 4runners. Note for 2010+ limited along with 2020+ with smart key, operation is slightly different. With the smart key system, it knows when the keys are in the vehicle. Therefore, the window up / down and window lock function do not work when they are in the vehicle. The hatch pop function will work, provided the vehicle is unlocked. That said, what people do instead is they throw their keys in the hitch, or into a surf lock box (see below). This allows for full operation like normal.


2. What does each button do?
Tapping the two way switch down unlocks the vehicle, holding it down for 2 seconds begins to roll the rear window down. Tapping up locks, and holding up starts to bring the window up.
The red button pops the rear hatch when the vehicle is unlocked.

3. I have a dog and am worried about him opening the back while driving. What can be done?
Luckily the system only works when the vehicle is locked. Once you start moving, the vehicle will lock, and the button will become useless. Luckily as noted above, while camping in the back you are able to lock and unlock the vehicle.


4. What is the install like?
Installation should be about an hour and requires no soldering or wire crimping. You have to remove some panels (I include instructions on how to do so), tap into 3 wires (I include 3M vampire taps and full schematics) as well as install the switches. I’d guess 5% of customers ask questions on the installation, but I have never had anyone say they couldn’t do it.

5. I want something custom, do you do that?
Yes, happy to do custom jobs. Just let me know what you are thinking

6. How do I pay?
a. I accept payment via Apple Pay, Venmo and PayPal. If paying with PayPal please send as friends and family or add 3% to account for PayPal fees. Please be sure to include which year you have, trim level and full shipping address.
  • Venmo = @Jesse -toedtman (PM me if this doesn’t work; the forum coding messes this up sometimes)
  • Paypal= Jessetoedtman@gmail.com
  • Apple Pay= shoot me an email and we can arrange.

7. Further Questions?
Email me at Jessetoedtman@gmail.com – I will usually respond within a day or less.

(video is from a 4th gen, operation is identical)



I had to buy extra material when making the first kit, so I decided to put a few kits together and sell them. The reception was great on the kits, so I decided to market some more kits.

Kits include:

Harness A
Harness B
(pre terminated connectors on each harness)
Up-Down DPDT Switch
Momentary SPST Button
6 zip ties
2 spare Toyota panel clips (just in case you damage yours when removing rear door panel)
1 spare Toyota interior trim clip (not shown; these are the pink compression clips) for 4th gens
Full instructions



*Note, kits supplied with a slightly different wire than shown. I switched to a smaller wire for easier installation*

Installation shouldn't take more than an hour and there is no soldering. Very simple. I have a 10+ page PDF install specific to 4th gen and 5th gen installs with pictures and wiring charts.

Price is $50 shipped, and I have these harnesses built up and ready to go. Let me know if interested- jessetoedtman@gmail.com
I love this.

I feel like this is a great kit for non-limited’s, even when I sleep I feel hitting the button for the LE covers it.

Some people have entire build threads with how to tutorials as a way of giving to the community. Others spend their time creating custom badges to share with the community.

And then some do whatever to make a buck.

Feel free to post the instructions for others to piece their own together.

Or dont. Wutever.

OP spent time figuring out how to do this, has assembled all the parts, and is willing to sell what amounts to a plug-and-play kit. I'm pretty sure most forum members (myself included), couldn't have figured this out on our own.

Nothing wrong with a little entrepreneurship.

Apparently you haven't read many people's threads on here... especially Antman's. There are a lot of us who have spent a lot of time documenting mods with detailed instructions and pictures.

The OP is selling about $5 worth of material for $50.

Just because someone does it and shares that it can be done doesn't obligate them to give it away for free. I'm glad so many members of the community share helpful mods, but I won't begrudge someone looking to make money off of theirs. If it's popular enough, someone will open-source it eventually anyway.

"Us"???? Where is your contribution to "us"? I couldn't find any. From some of the questions you've posted, you'd be the perfect candidate for a "kit".

@OP This is a good idea, and if I camped I wouldn't think twice about spending $50 (shipped) for it.

Bonus: An attaboy from The Ultimate Camper @Titanpat57

Let's see here:

$50
-$12 materials, easily.
-$8 packaging and shipping, easily.
=$30 for getting all the stuff, putting it all together properly, and hauling it to the PO. Hm, I'd say he's getting rich at the rate of $15/hr. I don't begrudge that.

i think there's value in a plug-and-play kit. what it's "worth" is up to the buyer, really.

i will submit, however, that most dog owners would appreciate, if not prefer, a recessed push-button for the hatch release...
