Here is a video of it in action

Coming late January to mid February
 
They had that at SEMA. I have been bugging them when it will be available. They said Late January to mid February.

As soon as I know something I will let everyone know.

Looks interesting. The 4 runner strut geometry isn't very conducive to adding a simple linear actuator set. I didn't think they would work unless they moved the mounting points. I'd like to see it open all on its own. The first few inches is where I didn't think the geometry would work. You'll notice he has to help it along. Hopefully they can make it work. If it can't open on its own, it kinda defeats the whole purpose.

Interesting indeed, just want to see how reliable it is in the long term considering it's not OEM. Makes you wonder if you can use the Highlander setup and transfer it over with little wiring and mod.

It looks more like he was pressing the button rather than assisting it opening :noidea:

geometry looks fine, he's pushing the open button

I would highly not recommend the Highlander set up even if it did work.

My wife has a 2015 Highlander and it broke 3 times.
1. Both struts started leaking.
2. One strut kept popping off its mount
3. Just stopped working. Had to force the hatch open and it started working again. It was like it had to relearn what position it was in.

Also not to mention the 4R hatch feels a lot heavier.

If you get it and it works for you, I may be interested. If it fails at some point, I'm sure all we would need to do is disconnect the modules and replace the OE struts

One of mommas biggest gripes about the 4Runner is not having a power assisted rear lift gate. I am definitely intrigued, I think I can swallow the $399 price as well. Im curios as to where you would install the control module?!

Hans Moleman 06-02-2019 04:55 PM

Here is an even better one. It also has a sensor under the bumper where you can wave your foot and it opens.
