#598 of 660 single cd swap to 6-cd in-dash
Aug 23, 2005 (3:33 pm)
Does anyone know if the Toyota 6-cd in-dash JBL stereo can be installed in place of the single CD JBL stereo? We just bought a 2005 4Runner Sport and I really wanted the RDS feature and the salesperson told us that the only difference between the 2 stereo systems was the CD capacity. Not so - the RDS only comes on the 6-CD system. So we are trying our best to get an answer from the dealership but they are clueless - they say that the 6-CD system has an amp or something and the wiring will not be compatible? Are they just trying to avoid doing this or is this really a problem?

Does anyone know if you can have the 115v AC power outlet option added to 05 Sports Edition? Its offered as an option from the factory. It would be very nice to have an extra power outlet up front. (Cell phones/DVD players, etc)
#600 of 660 mounting electronic brake on the '05+
Aug 30, 2005 (8:20 pm)
Anyone know where is best to mount an electronic brake assembly for towing? there doesn't appear to be much room under the dash, and under dash cowling is quite flimsy.
hmmmm....you'd think when rigging out the 4R to tow 5,000lbs, they'd have thought of electonic brakes. maybe even factory installed one, or at least available as an option.
#601 of 660 Mudflaps to use after removing ruinning boards?
Sep 23, 2005 (5:43 pm)
Anybody know a good source for mudflaps that fit well with the body -- for use after the running boards are removed? This is for a 2005 4Runner, need something that works aesthetically, but protects the rockers, lower body from flying debris.

I have an eclipse avn5435 installed on 04 SR5 V8. Plays mp3 (over 100 songs), navi, local tv, dvd movies for $2000 installed. Worth the money if you are planning to keep the SUV plus 10 years.
#603 of 660 '05 4Runner grocery hooks?
Oct 02, 2005 (11:35 am)
If you have the parcel shelf, you don't get the hooks which are part of the interior rear wheels covers. But--it looks like the compartment where the parcel shelf locks on the wheel covers is removeable, to allow for replacement with the hooks--if you don't want to use the shelf or lock it down. Anybody find the replacement hooks anywhere? Part numbers?
#604 of 660 Best Bike Rack Option
Oct 11, 2005 (9:13 am)
I am trying to decide between getting a rear hitch bike rack or a roof mount rack to go on the factory rails to haul a couple of mountain bikes to the trails with my 05 4Runner. What do people think the best option is?
I own a trunk mount Saris rack right now that I used with my car which worked reasonable well, but when loaded with more than two bikes they would bump into each other and get scratched. Wondering if people have better luck keeping them apart with hitch mount racks.
I am 5'11" and reasonable fit so I don't think I would have too much trouble loading them on and off the roof rack, but I haven't ever tried so I don't know I guess. Also do the Yakima and Thule attachements they sell to adapt to the factory rack work pretty well? Also keep reading horror stories about how people forget the bikes are up there and crunching them. Definitely don't want to do that.
I guess I am not looking for the for the pros and cons of each because I found those in my research already, but just people's experiences with them and their utility. Thanks.

I have 2005 SR5 V6 without the JBL audio.
Did you replace the factory stereo? I checked the same model in the Crutchfield. and they say it is completely unfit. SO what did you do.
If you can please tell me it will be really helpful

Try Ebay or Scionlife, look for a Scion 6-disk, an easy swap & steering wheel controls still work. E-mail me I'll give you more details/info.
Unfortunately, it doesn't apply to those w/ JBL system.
#607 of 660 05 4Runner - add an air intake
Oct 26, 2005 (1:00 pm)
I am thinking of purchasing the K&N cold air intake and changing the factory air filter system. Have anybody modified the factory air filter to a cold air intake value to the manifold? If yes, are there any suggestions or issues after installing it?
