    We just purchased a V6 limited with the 3rd Row seats, and wanted to get a tonneau cover and the cargo net poles as accessories (not included with 3rd row). Any suggestions out there on ordering these for a fair price? They're listed as approximately $300 each as parts for special order.

    Thanks!

    Does anyone one know if the 2006 Smittybuilt Nerf Bars will fit a 2007?
  • Sorry, but I googled cupholders "2006 Rav", but did not find any sites that had an insert. I saw a 2007 Rav at a dealership, and it came with a black rubber insert. Their parts did not know where it came from. I went back to check the insert for clues where it came from, but Rav was sold. I am tired of having coffee spilled on me!!!!! Please be more specific if you can....Thanks

    All 2007 Rav4s come with the cup holder inserts packed in a bag in the center consoul. They come from Toyota. You can try ordering them through the parts dept. but I have heard they are asking outlandish prices for them. Personally, I got some tapered cup holders are supposed to hang from the window edge and cut off the hanger, wedged them into the cup holders in the car and they work fine. $1.99 each at Target.
  • We love the Garmin Nuvi 350. Sells on Walmart.com for $454. It's fantastic!! Wouldn't leave home without it . . . can't get home without it! :-)
  • Does anyone have informaiton where I can get steering wheel audio controls for my base model RAV4?

    I scratched my back bumper loading something..so I decided to buy the Toyota brand application to cover it. Wow, it worked great. Much better than I thought. A bit pricy but easy to install and like I said it looks very functional. How much? Around $60.00

  • We have a third-row seat Limited RAV currently on order.

    We too are interested in a tonneau cover for the back. Since it's not listed as standard equipment for a third row version does anyone know if any modifications are required on the vehicle or if the mounting holes are there?

    It's confusing to us why this is not standard equipment for the more expensive third row Limited RAV, but is standard in the two row editions.
  • That's because that 3rd row IS actually in the cargo space. People in the 3rd fow will be sitting on the floor basically. So, it'll take up most of your space in the back that you won't be able to put tonneau cover because the back of the seat will be higher and further back than the tonneau cover. They have holes in the side plastic and tonneau cover has springs so one side can be compressed and once you place one side in the hole you release the other side and the spring mechanism seats the other side in the hole on that side. Now you need to pull out the cover but your 3rd row seat is between tonneau bar and the door so you can't really stretch it to cover your stuff in the back.
    So, in a few (100) words that's it.
  • Has anyone bought these body moldings in Pacific Blue color? If yes, did the paint match exactly or did it differ? Also, in general, how happy are the buyers of this aftermarket molding as far as installation, appearance, durability, etc.? Thanks.

    Hi: Where can I get a good dog separator to keep the 2 dogs in the cargo area? Subaru sells a great metal protection but can't find anything for Toyota. Thanks
  • I bought a dog separator for my Rav4 at Costco. It works great and cost about $35.00.

    Be careful what you buy if you have side airbags. Many barriers interfere with the airbag deployment.
  • My dealer says that a tonneau cover may be purchased only for the RAV4 Limited. Is this true? I've searched for an after market tonneau to no avail, so maybe he's right. Anyone had luck purchasing a tonneau cover?
  • Does anyone know where to find compatible HID headlights for an '07 RAV4 Limited V6? And I mean actual HIDs, not those cheap-looking blue-tinted plug-in xenons... Totally obsessed with the real deal... :confuse:
  • I have the tonneau cover for my Limited 07, and I never use it. I do not use the net w/bars, either. I only use the elasticised netting. There should be a place to trade parts like this! The two parts take up too much space, and are hardly used, in my opinion. With the new "trunk" on the '06 and '07, the tonneau cover is an extra not really needed......

    As far as I could gather on the Toyota site, only the Limited models come with the factory security system. Has anyone purchased the dealer-installed Toyota security system?

    For the dealer-installed system, is the flashing LED installed in the same place as that for the Limited model (on the lower-tier centre console)? And to what extent can the security system be customized or programmed by the dealer? (I think Toyota calls their customizable electronics, the "B.E.S.T." system)

    By programmable, I mean features such as motion or glass-break sensor; passive arming and/or locking; enable or disable audible arming and disarming confirmation beeps, light flash, etc. Actually, does Toyota release a list of all electronic settings that can be reprogrammed by the dealer?
  • Are you interested in selling the tonneau cover? If so, what color is it? I just bought a limited, and because it has third-row seats it didn't come with the cover. My interior is taupe. If yours matches, and you're interested, let me know. MSRP on this part is $140. Thanks!
  • Where did you find the cover for $300? The dealer I bought the car from couldn't even find the part, and I've been having trouble finding it myself anywhere online...
  • It is charcoal, came with my Limited 07 RAV4, and my interior is taupe also. I have never used it, it is sitting in my garage. Email me @ maildesi@yahoo.com as soon as you can, since I will be out of state all next week and we will talk more. I do not know about selling on this forum...
    I do not use the top netting that came with the RAV Limited, only the soft netting.
  • Yeah, I do not use those, either, only the elastic netting..I just love the new trunk area, also. The tonneau cover and bar netting would be nice on a trip, to add more space/cover your stuff, but I've just used a blanket to throw over it all. I guess craigslist will get some business!

    Wow... where did you buy those? I'm planning to buy one too.

    my 2 cents. The pole net isn't well thought out. It doesn't hold much and is mostly in the way. I bought a bungie net when I 1st got the RAV a year ago. Found it online for $26. It's really all you need. I never thought about it before but I have never had my cargo cover pulled closed.

    Has anyone installed 3rd row seat after market? Where can we get it done?
  • My two cents are the opposite of yours. We've had our RAV4 for all of 12 hours now and I already found the net to be useful when loading fragile items (i.e. food) for the trip home from Costco. Granted, I wouldn't go loading five gallons of milk into the thing, but for light packaged items I can't think of a better carrying solution.

    Has anybosy installed an after market alarm system? If so, what brand and approximate costs? We just bought a base RAV today and thats one thing I would like to put in my RAV. Thanks!
  • I was involved in another thread on this same topic (look here).

    The nutshell version is this: unless HID lighting was installed at the factory when the vehicle was built, it's not street legal.

    Can anyone help me with a link to accessories stores that sell all weather floor mats and cargo tray for RAV4 2008? I want to compare the prices against Toyota's accessories before buying.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Weathertech.com and Husky are the two biggest and most popular. Put "Husky floor mats" in google and you will get several stores selling them. The '08 will be the same as the '06 - '07.
