Lack of back end customization

Okay, so thereís hundreds of options to customize 4R front ends. And while there arenít nearly as many options to customize 4R sides, they tend to have pretty dramatic effect (wheels, step bars, rack), so no complaints there.

How does one make a unique 4R rear tho? Especially if Iím not going for an overly off-road vibe. Which means no metal bumpers, spare tire mounts or ladders.

I know that aftermarket taillights are kind of a no-brainer, but it seems like there are only 3 real options (Anzo, Morimoto, Unique Style Racing) 1 of which doesnít really look that different from stock.

Iíve tinted the back window and 3rd brake light (cool, but minor). I donít want to black out the rear badging because Iím of the opinion it doesnít look good unless you've got a black 4R.

Any options out there that I'm missing?

Leave it stock? More unique that way because every else wants to be special.

Paint a picture of your 4runner on the tailgate.
This person did it with his truck.
I guess it makes it easier to find at the mall

You guys are all cracking me up!

I am asking for serious suggestions, though. It kind of surprises me that there aren't more aftermarket options for a vehicle that hasn't been redesigned in so long.

you could bust out a dremel and put some stylish speed vents in the rear bumper. Will probably shave of a few seconds 0-60 too.

I'm curious as to what kind of things you are expecting?

You mentioned not "off-road" type of items, so I'm curious what customizations you would expect for a car primarily marketed at outdoor enthusiasts and moms that don't want mini vans.

Some customizations that I feel are rad and not off-roady are: TRD Pro grille, amber LED fogs, custom rims, nerf steps, aftermarket roof rack. Some customizations that are too off-roady for me are lift kit, oversized all-terrain tires, light bars.

I'm just looking for ideas to make my 4Runner more interesting than the average soccer mom's. For all of the modified 4Runners I see, they mostly just look stock when sitting behind them in traffic.

If money is burning a hole in your pocket like that, and it's not made, make it or have someone make it?

Slap a tire carrier on there.
