Nothing better then having to look back at your ride after you park it cause you just love to stare at it.

Hey SmithRunner,

No, I couldn't justify the $991.71 expense (front and back valances also).

Right now we are saving up to get the H3LL out of California and move to Colorado in the next 2 years.

These 4Runners are so dangerous with all mods available for them.

It also helped to have the new Valance on-hand so I could see where the clips are on it, and count them. Made it alot easier to blindly feel around and remove those clips.

I'll be replacing the back valance this week, which after researching alot looks like it'll require bumper removal. Wish me luck. I'm a little nervous about taking the whole bumper off a new vehicle but I'm doing it because I don't like the look of the silver valance on my all blacked out 4Runner.

Good luck. You should've removed the front. Neither are terribly difficult, but front was a good confidence builder for the rear. Rear just seemed to be needier to me. Didn't enjoy it nearly as much

SmithRunner, that looks fantastic! I just bought the exact same vehicle this past Friday and currently want to make it look like yours.

Do you have the links to the video's you used to remove the bumpers? Like you said in the latter post, my stress level for taking apart a brand new vehicle is rising just thinking about it

the rear isn't difficult. be sure to pop the plastic cap off the hook where the rear gate attaches, then you'll have to slide it up and over the hook to remove the bumper.
