Here’s a few pics of how it currently sits after I removed the rack, grill emblem and plate.

So after an almost 1k mile road trip I am really impressed with this truck even more! It was super comfortable the entire way and the radar cruise control is ****ing awesome! I don’t ever use cruise for any reason, on any vehicle because it alway so annoying to speed up, slow down, brake, turn it off, turn it on etc. Toyota nailed the radar cruise because on the freeway I went hours without even touching the gas or brake which was nice af! Only issue with is going uphill it will drop to a lower gear and hold the gear longer than it needs to. Other than that you literally only have to steer and lane assist keeps you alrert if you start drifting while txting or nodding off lol

Yea radar cruise really works well for the most part. I was planning on keeping it stock height and no rack. I will go wheeling in it but not too extreme so I don’t see a need

I really hate adaptive cruise. I hate lane assist. I hate all the nannies. Wish I had a 2019, but with the JBL and CarPlay.

Well aren’t you just a ball of joy lol. Relax man you can turn off lane assist and don’t have to use cruise.

I removed the roof rack and the Toyota emblems on the front grill and I shouldn’t have bought a pro? Lol

Looking forward to seeing what you do to it. Are you changing out suspension, wheels, adding new roof rack? Curious to hear about the performance with the Procharger.

I think his question is valid. The Pro trim is mostly cosmetic, and you're removing that.

If you're unable/unwilling to even change your own tire, I wouldn't expect that you'll be taking advantage of the upgraded suspension off road.

So why buy a Pro? The only answer is so that you can say "I have a a TRD Pro", and that's fine. Just odd to make it look like a non-pro if the name is what's important to you. Most people like the Pro aesthetics, though the roof rack is up for debate.

Debating the rational for how others spend their money and why they have the aesthetic taste they do is pure insanity.

While I personally think removing Toyota from the heritage grill is dumb and looks terrible, I fully appreciate this guy has a slightly different take on it.

I'm not really trying to start a debate, he can do whatever he like with his truck. It doesn't mean that we can't ask why.

Maybe we can learn if he has a good reason for going this route. Or maybe he will learn that he's doing something he will regret. If literally everyone thought that one of my ideas was stupid, maybe I would rethink my plan.

You're used to driving vehicles with over 500hp, so you buy one of the slowest BOF SUVs on the market and complain about power, then ditch the spare--which weighs about as much as a large dog--to "save weight."

I hate the premature downshifting too. When it drops to 4th in cruise you can often override it by throwing the shifter into manual mode, bumping back to 5th and then putting the shifter back to "D". The cruise will stay engaged and more often than not it will go back to 5th.

Ok so it appears my build is outside the norm since I’m not adding armor, ladders, lift, etc like everyone else. Well I’m not everyone else and I do things the way I want them to be and don’t care what anyone thinks. Now that’s out of the way...I debadge every vehicle I own and either you know what it is or you don’t, doesn’t bother me either way. I like my vehicles to look a certain way, OEM+ if you will and I always aim to make them look as aesthetically streamlined as possible. I was actually going to paint the Toyota grill and emblems body color, but noticed they only had little notches behind them so I removed instead. It looks way cleaner.

Not that I have to explain or justify how I spend my money to random strangers, but maybe this will help. I chose the pro because it has better suspension (which regardless of being on or off road, still performs better), black bumper covers that streamline with my black truck, better wheels/tires, keyless entry w/push button start, better sound system, better cat back exhaust and it holds its value more than any other 4Runner since it’s limited production. For the moron who thinks I bought a pro to say I bought a pro, newsflash buddy 99% of the world has no idea what that even is lol. Oh I just ordered Kustom54 rb6 headlights so does that make it less of a pro too? 🤦🏻*♂️Hahahaha

I’ve put 2500 miles on it in the week I've owned it and aside from the lack of power, I really love how comfortable the truck is and how well it rides.
