Default Jim's '05 V6 4Runner: The Evolution from stock to today

Here is my ride in the early days: stock tires, running boards, no lift, no scratches and low miles!

An early picture of it lifted but with stock tires and running boards. Still needed the front coilovers
readjusted to level the truck and then an alignment

Which model of Thule's expedition basket are you running? The 695 or 696?

Expedition Large Model #696
very strong but not heavy itself, holds a lot of gear!

How would you compare your rack, to like the Surco that Mike and others have?

When empty the Thule Expedition large should present less wind resistance and probably weighs less. Other racks probably have more square floor footage and taller walls/rails but are likely to be heavier which deducts from total payload on the factory rails as well as making more wind noise.

Mine is probably more "pretty" and does not have that rugged-cluttered-all black expedition look.

For ultimate payload and strength it would be best to remove the factory rails and bolt a complete rack solution to the roof.

Default Donahoe Shocks

Just installed a pair of Donahoe rear shocks. Thanks to Robert for setting me up with the Findlay Toyota parts guru, Scott. Shipping was blindingly fast and Scott is great to work with.

Default Putting the secondary battery to work

tore apart the rear cargo area and ran two double 10 gauge wires from the secondary battery



through the right rear passenger doorsill cable tray heading up to the front engine firewall



two new outlets next to the factory outlet which is modified for constant power



I bought the house brand outlets at West Marine because you can get three on a bezel cheaper than you can buy three individually. Disassembly is a cinch.

Here is a spankin' new Engel to test the outlets. In 36 hours of running at 38 degrees F the Optima has dropped from 12.5 volts to 12.2 volts
