    How Annoying is a Backseat Fridge?

    Looks like metal to me. That whole truck is a showpiece but way above my pay grade.

    Show us your Toyota 4runner, tacoma or truck.

    Love the white T4R but I think your wife should add some black to the front. :)

    How Annoying is a Backseat Fridge?

    Works for me. My fridge is only 27 quarts but is plenty big for my wife and me. I built a little platform for the 40% side of my Tacoma's rear seat and electrical socket on the back of the center console. I also have a platform for the 60% side when I feel like taking the whole seat out. I...

    Looking For A Hitch Cargo Rack W/Added Ground Clearance...

    That's what I was thinking. You can get them with up to a foot drop so you could flip one over and get a foot of additional height.

    Rockpals Refridgerator

    I have run mine continuously since June and it has performed flawlessly running on both AC and DC current. I bought their little 330W battery pack and it works well too but the 12V socket is unregulated. Their 100W portable solar panels work really well too and I use it to recharge the battery...

    Tacoma vs 4Runner TRD Off-Road

    I think the rated tow weight is a misleading number on which to focus. If a 6,400 lb trailer has the recommended tongue weight of 10%-15% that's 640-960 lbs. of your weight limit which is what---about 1,000 lbs. optimistically. So the driver, passengers, camping gear in the bed, whatever can...

    Tacoma vs 4Runner TRD Off-Road

    I've owned a 2012 Tacoma, a 2014 T4R and currently drive a 2019 Tacoma. If you don't need a pickup bed then the T4R is a much more comfortable vehicle. I wish I still had mine.

    First Foray into 4Runners - My 1st Gen Build

    This is 1985 when it was just car camping. I bought the first T4R in Austin. It is hard to see in the picture but the dealer removed the factory graphics and did some custom pin-striping, chrome wheels, brush guard, etc. Wish I still had it but after driving it for 14 years I had pretty much...

    Scepter water can pump?

    Did it fit right on the cap without any cutting/fitting?

    How in the hell is an S-Pod BantamX $915.00!

    Can you show us some pictures of the product in your Tacoma?

    First Foray into 4Runners - My 1st Gen Build

    I didn't think this forum was quite so purist. I, for one, would like to see you stay and keep updating the thread. Those not interested should just scroll on by.

    Tool Overkill?

    Yeah, it doesn't seem excessive to me and losing a few hand tools or a bunch of the electrical connectors won't save any appreciable weight. I used to carry the exact same jack setup and just never needed it. That is probably the place to save weight. Of course, as soon as you do you'll find...
