Toyota 4Runner Accessories

edited April 2014 in Toyota
Hi all--

When I was still in the market for a Honda Pilot, I did a lot of reading here on and on a Pilot owners board (don't know if I can name it here), where owners could get together to discuss their rides, post pics and do group buys on certain accessories for their Pilot.

My question is: does anyone know of a similar message board outside of and/or any websites where I can do a little snoopin' around on accessories for my '03 4Runner?

Thanks in advance,
Sis Crys

    If there's interest, we can start an Owner's Club here like we have for the Highlander (Toyota Highlander Owners: Accessories & Modifications).

    Otherwise try an internet search (management frowns on promoting competing forums on Town Hall)

    For the 2003 SR5, does anybody know if the wiring for the electrochromatic mirror is in place or would I have run the wiring myself if I bought this accessory?
  • steverstever Posts: 52,683
    We've renamed this discussion to concentrate on 4Runner accessories, and if it takes off we can think about including it in a Owner's Club section.

    Keep posting :-)

    I am towing a 4000 lb. trailer with my 02 Sport Edition. On steep grades with this tow weight the truck struggles a little. Does anyone know if adding the TRD Supercharger boosting the HP from 187 to 251 and the torque from 225 to 275 lb./ft. will assist when towing?

    I like my 02 better than the redesigned 03 so I will not consider trading. This 02 is awesome, just turned 30,000 miles and has not been to the dealer for anything. I change the oil and filter every 2500. With frequent towing I may consider this more often.

    If the supercharger with transmission cooler will, if only slightly, improve my towing performance, I will order one. Appreciate comments and recommendations

    Anyone know of a place to get the rear spoiler
    for a 2003 4Runner?
  • bryancosbryancos Posts: 282
    Here's a link.. price is $295.19 plus another $56.88 for the template, which they state is 'required'. ID=2003&CID=355&PC=
  • bryancosbryancos Posts: 282
    I'm looking into getting one of the mirrors too as soon as the budget (and the other half) allows... I have an SR5 too, and haven't looked for a harness yet, but suspect we can just tap into the maplight wiring right at the top of the windshield without too much grief... Let me know what you find out!

    Funny thing I noticed here about the mirror: p;CID=456&SID=2003&ZID=58

    4-Runner Electrochromic Mirror
    Sale: $169.96
    Includes Auto Dimming and Compass
    2003 4Runner 2WD 4-DOOR LIMITED V8 w/ 5 Speed Automatic
    2003 4Runner 2WD 4-DOOR SR5 V8 w/ 5 Speed Automatic
    2003 4Runner 4-Door 4X2 SR5 V6 w/ 5 Speed Automatic <<<<<<?!?
    2003 4Runner 4WD 4 -DOOR SR5 V6 w/ 5 Speed Automatic <<<<<<?!?
    2003 4Runner 4WD 4-DOOR LIMITED V8 w/ 5 Speed Automatic
    2003 4Runner 4WD 4-DOOR SR5 V8 w/ 5 Speed Automatic

    Hmmm... V6 w/ 5speed automatic... now that I'd like to see -- since the V6 only comes w/ the 4 speed!

    Odd.. I just got off the phone w/ my local dealer parts dept and they claim that the part numbers starting with "000168" were REGIONAL part numbers and therefore could not be pulled up on their computer. Apparently the dealer where I got those numbers on the web (Deland Toyota in Deland, FL) has access to parts that my local (Colorado) dealer does not. Or my local dealer parts dept is either lazy or just plain worthless... They further stated that they may not fit vehicles sold in my region. (I think they're full of it --they're all assembled at the same factory!) I'll just order online and bypass the moron factor.

    See the following TRD sites for more info on the available Supercharger:

    To answer your questions, read the following excerpt:
    "The TRD Supercharger produces boost instantly, even at low engine speeds, and unlike turbocharging systems and their inherent response "lag," there is no hesitation during hard acceleration or when the engine is under load. This provides Toyota Truck owners with improved passing ability and eases towing from dead stops or on steep grades"

    I believe the company that outfitted the global extreme vehicles is going to start manufacturing/selling al the items they put on the new 4runners for the show. I had enquired a few months ago. Safari gard got a questionarre back to me recently to try and figure out the intrest in such a deal. Take a look at their web site an send them a email if intrested in their product. chris
  • gareneaugareneau Posts: 2
    Has anybody heard of this company and can speak to their reputation? A retail friend is offering me one of their roof racks and bike racks and I'm not sure if they fit my 2002 4-Runner SR5. Any thoughts?
  • jaredmsdjaredmsd Posts: 127
    Regarding the MacNeil accessories, I am extremely pleased. I bought the bug deflector, floor mats, and cargo mat for my 4runner. The color of the mats is pretty much right on, the cargo mat fits down to the centimeter, and both did wonderful on my recent dirt/sand filled off-road trip. The bug deflector was easy to install, and everything was shipped and arrived with a quickness. Possitive marks goes out to MacNeil for all of their goods.
  • bmw323isbmw323is Posts: 410
    I also bought the floor mats from MacNeil. Good product, but I did have to do some trimming on the mats to get them to fit properly. The rear ones were easy since the lines are already there. I also trimmed the drivers mat because I thought it interferred with the accelerator.

    I got the black mats and my only complaint is that the mat shows marks from shoes, so they don't keep that glossy black 'new' finish for long.

    For the cargo mat, do you have the double deck cargo system in your 4Runner. If so, does the mat just sit on top of it? How does it work if you raise the deck? Does it go underneath then?
  • bryancosbryancos Posts: 282
    For those interested, BrandSport is blowing out electrochromatic auto-dimming rear view mirrors for $49 w/ free shipping that will fit all years of 4runner:

    Toyota 4Runner 1984, 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003 (fits models with factory windshield mounted mirror only)

    The mirror came in a Genuine Toyota Parts box:
    Description: Mirror, EC, RR View
    Part no: PT374-0C020

    These are JUST the mirror WITHOUT the compass or maplights. Was an easy two wire hookup. Mine arrived today and it took me 10 mins to install in my 2003 4Runner SR5. (I grounded at the bolt at base of the dash, and plugged hot side into accessory fuse) See this URL if you're interested in this steal of a deal for an auto dimming mirror:

    Anyone have any info when Toyota will be making the Fog lamps available to the consumer? Bought my 4Runner a month ago and thought I'd put them on later.
    Was told unless the truck came with them when you bought it, can't get them.
    Any insight?
  • jaredmsdjaredmsd Posts: 127
    I don't have the double-decker shelf, so I just got the one for the whole floor. It seems to me that you have two options. You either get a floor mat for top of the double-decker shelf, or you get one that goes underneath it. There are pictures on that seem to show both of these cases. I like the rear mat much better than the floor mats because it was made specifically for the 4runner so it fits down to the centimeter, and it has a large (2-3 inches) lip to contain spills.
  • bryancosbryancos Posts: 282
    Check this place for foglights for your 2003 4Runner: - - g-light.html

    Looks like they carry them, but you'll need to call them at 1-888-267-1845 for pricing... Shouldn't matter if you have the V8 or V6... it's the model year that matters.

    Want a better match for your paint than the blob bottle from the dealer? Check out:

    They sell touchup paint and clearcoat in custom made pens, bottles and even spray cans. Prices are very reasonable and they come highly recommended...

    Also check out to eliminate paint blobs..
  • steverstever Posts: 52,683
    Hey Bryan, any idea how the blob stuff works? It's more than a toothpick in a can I take it?

    Steve, Host
  • bryancosbryancos Posts: 282
    Apparently the Langka blob remover is a specialized solvent that works only w/ touch up paints. It will not harm existing factory baked paint. You essentially apply it to a tightly woven fabric such as a tshirt, etc, and use a plastic straight edge similar to a credit card to keep the fabric taut while gently "scraping" away the blob w/ the solvent on the fabric...
    I've read reviews/articles on "other boards" which can't be posted here, and the results (and photos posted by others) showed some impressive results. Doing a search for "langka" on should suffice to help folks find the articles. :)
  • bryancosbryancos Posts: 282
    Found a great source for rear spoilers for the new 4Runner. Check the following URL:

    $100 extra if you want them to paint it to match...
  • steverstever Posts: 52,683
    Thanks Bryan - interesting stuff people think up.

    Steve, Host

    Macneil mats ( have models that go both on top and below the double-decker cargo system. Personally, I've found the double-decker shelf to be more of a pain than a help, so I will likely get the model that fits below and just leave the shelf lowered. My 4Runner came w/ the carpeted embroidered mat which looks nice, but isn't practical for hauling "dirty" items. is another source that sells products made by husky and nifty products for slightly less money than what Macniel sells for. I had a nifty mat in my Envoy and it sufficed.

    Got my 2003 4Runner Sport V6 w/ the Day time running light. Whenever the head light is not on and the truck is moving. It lights up orange/amber. Take a closer look and find out that it's the bulb which has the color, the cover is clear. Just wondering if any one knows what size of bulb is it so that i could get some after market super white bulb for replacement.
  • rokinkrokink Posts: 25
    That amber bulb also serves as the turn signal light. Now, I have seen a Hyundai with what seems to be clear factory turn lights on the rear (and it annoyed me driving behind it).
