Hello everyone, I’m completely new to the Toyota crowd(I’ve always owned Jeep’s for trail riding and camping) I just took over my wife’s 5th gen 2011 4Runner, it has low miles since she drove it a mile to work since it was 2 years old. Everything mechanically is great, I’m looking for good sources for bumpers, sliders, lifts and all the cool stuff. Sorry if I am posting a question already answered. Also just looking at common issues with the 4Runner when on a trail or camping and recommended parts to use. Thanks for the info!

Mods would depend on your specific usage. What trim is the 4runner? What trails are you taking this on? How many people? What’s the budget? Etc etc.

It’s an sr5 4x4, it’s really only going to be used for some trail riding,expedition camping, hunting, using it to drive around in my 35 acre farm and taking a trip out of state once and a wile, max load of people will be my wife, 3 young kids and myself, my budget is on the conservative side but if it’s necessary to spend the money on quality parts I will. I want: bumpers front and rear with a tire career, roof basket/rack(one that will work with roof top tents). Rock sliders, lift(probably3 inches max), front locker

For what you’re doing, as mentioned above, stock rig will handle it. But I know the bumpers and rack look pretty cool. Nothing wrong with modding for style. There are lots of bumper manufacturers. Look at Southern Styles Offroad. My friend recently got one from them and it looks nice. OME suspension is good.
I like Gobi roof racks with the rear ladder. I’d definitely forego the front locker unless you like throwing away money.

None of this is cheap, except the lift (probable $1k). So keep that in mind.

I would suggest just to use it as is and upgrade if you feel you need / want to. From what you describe it doesn't sound like anything a stock 4Runner couldn't handle? I guess it depends on the trials. Tough to say.
Yeah it’s not a need lol I want to do this stuff lol

Yeah I understand, the price on stuff for the 4Runner kind of surprised me vs the stuff for jeeps. I’m really just looking for suggestions for manufacturers of the parts that people trust because nothing really crosses over from the jeep community.
