Ha ha!Back up camera, fancy headunit, Bluetooth hook up, navigation, LED Tactical Overland lighting..... look what you've become....
Do you like those seats? I liked those Corbeau's, but only for short drives. Can't move in those things! Great for car racing, but I like shift a bit on longer drives.Ha ha!
Really don't like the look of after market head units. Was going to get a Blue Tooth converter for my existing stock radio. But whole head units aren't that much more.
Was going to try to run everything through the phone, but that looks even more janky when they are on a stalk.
Might even break down and buy some new seats. Looking at Corbeau.
Wish they offered the GTS II with lower thigh bolsters like the Sheel-Mann.
I do, had a set similar in my ‘92 that we’re out of an Acura.Do you like those seats? I liked those Corbeau's, but only for short drives. Can't move in those things! Great for car racing, but I like shift a bit on longer drives.
I have looked and looked for 4Runner Limited seats over the years, darn near impossible to find...or you do find them, and they are sold in a heartbeat.I feel claustrophobic in those racing seats. I think the best seats I've sat in are Land Cruiser seats. Nice and plush. Or 4Runner Limited.
I spent so many years with a fixed back Sparco that I actually miss them now. The 2nd gen Taco seats are unbearably awful.
Those Corbeau's are nearly identical to the Recaro's my old man put in his BJ60, and they're so comfy. I wouldn't hesitate picking up a set if I could work out the airbag bypass stuff. (I'm sure there's a way, just haven't looked into it)
The way it is now the seats are at perfect ass height. Would have to pull up and over to clear it. See that getting old real fricken quick.I think that's the big issue. Having a low car, with a cage to grab onto, where you literally sit down into the seat, is a lot easier than having to pull yourself up and over that bolster. That's really my only complaint with the BJ60. It's a chore, especially when you're my size.
What's the consensus on Softoppers? I think I have asked this before, but can't remember. Now I'm debating this again. I sometimes have to haul things that would not fit inside a shell (even high rise). I wish there were an uber light shell available. So maybe 25% of the time, I'd need the topper off. Rest, it would stay on the truck. I just hate the hassle of taking the shell on and off, and I really don't even have room to store it. (no, @Clutch, trailer idea is a no go! Again, storage. )
I'm not fond of the looks of the Softopper, but it would do what I'd need. Security is not an issue. I'd get rid of the stupid vinyl windows and replace them with solid canvas inserts (they sell this separately).
Someone mold me an 80lb carbon fiber shell. Don't need windows, keep the weight down. Don't need to stow anything up top, so no need for brute reinforcements.
Canback's look nice, but two things going against it. Price, and more complicated to fold up (and doesn't fold back like the Softopper).Had one on my last 1st gen doublecab. Sold it. Mostly because of fit... I'd do a Can-Back if they still make them; I like their framework better.
