I'm planning on this route. How are you securing the table? Does it rattle when you're driving around town?

You can use turnbuckles to secure it to the factory tie down rings. I never secured it though. I used MDF for the top platform so its super heavy and fits in pretty secure. No rattling or movement issues on or offroad at all.

That is my exact unicorn of a 4Runner. I got everything on your list except the sliding cargo deck when new, but found one for sale on this forum for $200 within driving distance and then added it myself. There are threads that talk about how to do it - despite having to drill two holes, it is not a difficult job to add one in. The hardest part is finding someone selling one.

It makes everything totally flat in the back when the rear seats are folded plus you get the bonus of some added storage areas underneath it and between the back seats and the deck.

Build a 'pallet' that is 2.5" tall. One piece of plywood and some 2x2 strips and a handful of screws. $30-ish.

Mine - similar to Effay Bravo's setup but not as refined:

That’s a great idea. Something like that seems like the easiest solution. Throw something like that down and then a thick mattress pad or thick foam topper. Sleeping bag over that and you’d prob be pretty comfortable.

Very nice! White is actually mys second or third choice. If I could get one in Cement or Quicksand, it would be absolutely perfect. Sadly that's not an option for some reason. Don't know why Tacoma and Tundra get special treatment.

I'll probably end up installing the sliding tray myself too once I track one down. Figured I'd explore all my options, so I just sent my dealer a parts list to see how much it comes out to. They said they would give me discount on them since they are not able to order one with the tray, but I'm still betting it will come out to lots of money.

My wife slept in the back on a trip using a rectangular Costco memory foam dog bed on 1/2 the cargo area, with a Paco pad on top of that. They are pretty cheap and comfortable for sleeping.

Lot's of great ideas here! I'm considering this folding table option:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B008S8ZOHA/

17.6" L x 33.9" W x 3.1" H - Should fit well for 1 person with the rear seat bottom removed, plus you have a handy camp table. Anybody tried this kind of solution?

They said they would give me discount on them since they are not able to order one with the tray, but I'm still betting it will come out to lots of money.
The dealer I bought from set up the deal with the $350 price that they charge from the factory, then realized they couldn’t add it as an option if it wasn’t on the vehicle already. They had to just drop it off the price. I’ve seen the parts listed out on other threads at somewhere north of $1500 if you buy it part by part from Toyota.

It seems like it would be pretty easy for Toyota and their dealers to sell a kit for the $350 price, or charge $500 installed as an option on any of them. It only took me about an hour to install, and that was having to customize my existing flat floor carpet and liner to fit since the seller kept his tray-specific carpet under some ARB drawers he had installed. You don’t need the special carpet and it’s “U” shaped styrofoam piece to make it work.

I do this plus a Megamat pad and a Nemo bag. Pull the passenger rear seat bottom out and put a small Action Packer in the foot well. Perfectly flat sleeping area to fit a 77”x30” pad. It is also cheap, light and provides some additional cushion when sleeping with your head to the rear.

Ordering a new 4Runner

I'm trying to buy a new 4Runner with the tray right now, but it's not an option in the MN-WI-IL-IN region, so I have to talk to dealers in Iowa and Missouri or Michigan. Toyota is a real pain sometimes. Really ruining my shopping experience right now.
Try ordering the vehicle you want with the accessories you want. It takes 6 weeks for Toyota to build it in Japan and ship it to you. This may be worth the wait if you really want one feature. Or like me, I didn't want any of the Toyota accessories, like the floor carpets and roof rack cross bars, because I knew I was going to replace them with better aftermarket products.

Camping and sleeping in the 4Runner

When I go off road or camping I want lots of space for heavy gear, like water and recovery gear. I want that weight low and centered in the vehicle. That's why I take the back seats out and put the heavy gear in the low footwell of the second row.

When I get there, if I want to sleep inside, I take the big water jugs out and stuff the space with soft gear, like bags of clothes, etc. Suddenly the floor is nearly flat. I add a couple of camping pads, a thick blanket and my sleeping bag. This is really easy to clear half of the floor when you're camping alone. With two people I usually take a tent.

This is exactly what I use. I think it would work better with two. My dog always looks at me weird when I steal his bed and replace it with some towels for him.
