With the sub, it's better than the system I had before, even without the highs amp

Been doing some small things here and there, nothing major. Recently got a new set of Nitto Crosstek tires all around, added some new Bosch Icon wipers, crazy stuff I know. It's my DD so I don't really have time to do a lot of mods to it. My buddy agreed to help me run the speaker wires through the doors so that I could finally use the highs amp, so I'll be working on that in the next week or 2. Also trying to source a stock sub panel to complete the look. The other panel rattled, had broken clips, and didn't fit right, so I've been rolling around with the amp and sub exposed for like a year The problem is, you can only buy the whole interior panel for like $400 so I've been trying to get someone to sell me just the piece I need

Thanks J, it's a work in progress, but being a DD, I don't do as much as fast. Definitely going to have lots of activity in here the next few weeks

Anytime, man...I still appreciate you taking the time to document and share. I've lost my steam lately...I used to make DIY threads and document every single adventure with my TL. I should probably get back on it.

Always loved these 4 Runner's and I love that you didn't overdo the system...on the S2000 I ended up going the simple route too...nice HU, stock speakers are poly (believe it or not) and just dremel'd and added 2 behind the seats and one tiny spare tire sub...doesn't blow the doors off, but I can still hear the music with top down on the highway. In traffic sometimes I'm like, MAN did I go overboard on the TL.

Thanks bud, I'm not done with the stereo, but like I said it's a work in progress, I actually documented my old 4Runner audio more thoroughly I think, but I definitely like sharing what I do, I also get a lot of PM's both here and on the 4Runner forum asking questions, so it's nice to know other people are inspired or like my ideas.

Wait, why'd you get the plastic bumper instead of a Demello?

So I made some progress on the bi-xenon retro, since this is a drop in kit, I just had to mate the projectors to the precut brackets and bolt them in.

Then I had to drill a hole for the bi-xenon high beam wires to run out to the harnesses.

Got the headlights all buttoned up and sealed back together, here's a few pics of the finished product.

Baked them separately, and then glued them back together and baked them again.
