I got the 21134ETBC Black 12mm x 1.50. It has the regular cone shape but has an extended thread which slides into the wheel (hence helping the wheel align without being hub centric. I believe this...

106mm. If you're looking for after-market wheeels, you will be hard pressed to find the correct bore size. I just got Method wheels and they are 108mm. I'm using Gorilla lug nuts which center the...

I like the TRD wheels.... seriously contemplated getting them on my silver GX before deciding on Method. By the way, TRD wheels are 7" wide, not 8.5". Lots of Toyota people have complained but many...

You will almost always get a grinding noise when shifting H-N-:L when on paved surfaces. My theory is that the front and rear shafts are never perfectly aligned and you're forcing the gears to sync...

Welcome to the club! I have the same color scheme inside but silver exterior (sport as well). But you have the non-nav model. I'm super jealous. You can install a real nice aftermarket unit. ...

+3!
If you're hitting the bump stops, there is something wrong with your springs (air bags not retaining proper PSI). If you remove the bump stops, you increase the chance of having your axles...

Let us know what you think of those lights? I'm thinking of getting those and replacing the projectors with Acura TL's. I currently have the HID conversion but not as good as the real HIDs.

I had mine with 2" front lift without the rear lift for a while before tricking the airbag and it doesn't look bad at all. I personally preferred it over the stock stink bug look. Tricking the rear...

Congratulations! I was debating between black and silver but settled for silver since the black would show all the scratches from off-roading. But black looks really sharp in my opinion.

If you're not looking at KDSS for off-road purposes, I would say it's not worth the trouble. The coolest thing about the Sports model in my opinion is the grey wood trim (I don't like light or the...

When I was searching for mine, I would say 1/20 I looked at was Sports. The dealers didn't know nor did they care that it was a sports model. KDSS did not add value to the used car sales. All they...

I installed my Fox CO about two years and had to remove them recently to get them re-valved so my memory should be fresh.

Good luck on your search! If you haven't noticed already, the biggest difference between GX and 4th Gen 4R for me was the sitting position. You sit low like in a sedan in 4R vs. more upright like a...
