Evaluating the condition under my driving conditions/habits. I think it was a babied lease trade in. Those days are over.
Wife wanted a 4 seat CanAm to explore off the beaten path, I bought the 4runner. I'm ok with her getting a CanAm too patkelly4370 maintained and mod thread.
I could just drain a sample. Guess I'm still conditioned from changing oil between runs/heats.

"A" pillar handle
Blacked out roof rack. It was silver.

Front recovery points.
Rear recovery points. Right one required trimming the exhaust (another item on my list. Two birds, one stone).

Here's the hose(s) to inflate/deflate/equalize all 4 tires simultaneously.
Using my garage compressor I took all 4 from 28 to 35 psi in two minutes. This includes rolling the hose out and back in.
It includes a gauge, shutoff valve, and hose connector to the compressor hose or a chuck.

Had to use or cash in my vacation time/pay, so cashed in 3 weeks pay.
Have a short roadtrip next month (1,800 miles) so funds set aside for that.
So bouncing around ideas for something on the 4runner.
Sadly, I'm not hitting trails like I'd hoped. The family doesn't want to go, I have no friends, and the local clubs go on weekends (duh) and I work weekends. So exploring is solo.
The 4runners capabilities aren't wasted though with the rutted, washed out dirt roads we live on (town is 79 sq/mi with 4 paved roads. Population 7,500).
So I've been looking real hard at ditch lights (actually pointed at the dirches). Would be handy on our dark desert street corners because of wild burros and escaped cattle.
Another temptation is an aftermarket front skid plate (easier oil changes and the other skids later).
Or sliders to replace the Nfab nerf/steps that came on the 4runner. A bit more peace of mind to encourage more solo treks.
I think I'm going to order sliders today.
A friend would still be nice. Preferably with safe offroading experience.

Built a crude, but effective, sleeping platform a week or so ago. Tried it out last night.
After settling in from "this isn't what I'm used to" I slept fairly well.
I sleep 5 "nights" a week in the bunk of my 18-wheeler (could be night or day). Two nights are at home either in bed or on the couch.
The platform is a simple sheet of leftover siding that is hinged to fold so the right rear seat can be used. Fold down the seat, fold out the platform, lay down the pad (a better pad would be nice) and roll out the sleeping bag. Getting my fat old body in is the tricky part.
It's rudimentary, but it's a couple steps above reclining the seat and sleeping. It's for stealth camping for a couple of nights on the upcoming roadtrip. Might take a side trip along the way.
