Rumor has it that it's new port of berth is SLC. I'm sure that you'll see a lot more of it.
Yep, that's me.I swear I have seen this vehicle around Salt Lake City for the past couple weeks.
The interior panels are a combination of recessed screws and clipped in push plugs. The push plugs are a finned plastic gizmo that is easily replaced if they get in bad shape. Most of the dealers carry spares, and they are roughly a buck a piece. That driver's side panel is where I put the live outlets for the fridge and accessory plug. When you are putting the panel back on, be aware of aligning the push plugs with their respective holes. I have messed up more of those putting the panel back than taking it out.I can add a bit to this portion, sure.
I recently bought a 5th Gen TE. I was wondering about how to get the drivers side rear pocket off of the wheel well. Does it just pull straight off? Im pulling on mine but it seems like its taking a little too much force. I don't want to force it and break it. Thanks
That is a great question. I haven't weighed it with full kit. Honestly, I haven't felt a need to. When I changed the suspension with the lift, I chose the stock plus 800 lb option. Heaviest they offer. I went through too many suspensions on the 100 Series, finally ending up with as heavy as they made. So I figured why wait. The interior cabinets set actually weighs less than the seats I took out of the second row. The fridge and slide are maybe 100 lbs. On the roof I have a rack, tent, table, awning, case, recovery gear. Thumbnail weight of 250lbs. Front bumper and sliders would maybe reach 200 lbs. I added about 550 lbs to the truck, but increased suspension capacity and tire rating. Even fully loaded, and the Chaser on the back, the truck still runs with a little stinkbug action in the rear. Solid as a rock. I expect that a rear bumper and future auxiliary tank will smooth that out.What does the rig weigh, with you in it, fully loaded, for 2 weeks offroad after all the mods?
Close to GVWR, over? Mods to accommodate?
Mario at AT Overland has is all figured out. Contact him for an idea of what is possible. I haven't had a chance to catch up on that part of the plan yet. Hopefully sometime soon. What I can tell you is that it has turned out to be a great system. Quiet. Solid. Light. Tough. I am really happy with it.Any updates on this drawer system?
Ultimately, the solution was an ARB front bumper and the removal of the mud flap portion of the fender flare. The ARB Bumper requires trimming back the front wheel well liner and attaching it a bit more forward to the bumper. When I installed the Slee sliders, they lined up with the bottom of the flare without the mud flap. I removed it. Every once in a while with full turn and compression I will hear a little rub. It's liveable. It's like saying my eye hurts with my finger in it. Well, don't put your finger in your eye. Solved. I don't do full turns in compression. Solved.I have the same 4Runner. With a 3" ToyTec Ultimate lift. The BFGs AllTerrain TAs rub slightly. How did you correct this problem? Thanks.
Had a great weekend birthday celebration. Went to Cabo San Lucas for a couple days with my sweetheart/wife/boss/best friend Heather. I sat on a beach for 3 days and read a book. No schedule, no driving, no set up/take down, no agenda, no nothing. Beers brought to my beach chair. I read "A pirate looks at 50" by Jimmy Buffett, a long time mentor of mine. The book has been on my shelf for over a decade and I had never given up enough time to read it. I thought it was only fitting, given the event. I am proud to say I read the entire book sitting there on the beach.
Well, back to work.
