All 4 tires were re balanced today. Fronts were still good but the 2 rears: 1 off by 1.2 oz & the other off by .5 oz. Wobble is gone for now, at least up to 70. He said they may throw in a free re balance at 5000 miles, just to be safe. He also said that they might be too much tire for that vehicle ? They are the exact same size as the factory tires but they are much heavier. But I wouldn't think that would cause a wobble ? Heavier tires come into play when starting, stopping & going fast off road (ie, the shocks would not be valved properly for such a heavy tire).

So far, so good. Drives nice. Maybe they just rushed it in & out & didn't take the time to do it right ?

Hey, just joined the forum. Been DD-ing a 17 TRD Pro, got it back in March. Wife wants it as her DD, but she is currently DD-ing our '04 Tacoma. I also own a '98 Jeep that is driven primarily off-road and what will be towed by the PW. I'm in the researching phase right now on PWs. Pretty sold on them, just trying to figure out the right price to pay for a PW with the Leather/Luxury Group.

Here is our 4Runner, ran Black Bear Pass, Imogene Pass, and several other passes last month.

Nice ! Your right being sold on the PW. Best truck on the market IMHO, as long as you don't really need a diesel for what you do with it. I love ours with the manual 6-speed.

We just recently towed a utility trailer w/around 600 lbs on it behind the 4Runner for a little over 500 miles. It drove great. Tracked true. It sucked coming back empty though, with all the bouncing the trailer did. Our mpg's really did not even suffer. Got 17.9 mph on the way to, with the wind at our back & 17 mpg on the way back, into the wind. The knobby tires took about 1-2 mpg away from stock street tread tires. Toyota should be ashamed to sell a TRD Off-Road with street tires ! :lol:

Definitely don't need the diesel, would be fun if the 17/18 PWs came with a standard trans option. The factory Nittos on the 4R did fairly well in CO where it was dry, not as good as the MTR/Ks on my TJ, but won't complain.

Oh man that is so beautiful. I keep trying to get my company to allow my relocation to the Albuquerque office. I would be a mere 6 hours away from that.

I'm going to really hammer them now.

Just got back from a Boston Mass, Salem Mass 4 day trip. It was fun. Ate some great seafood. Hit Quincy Market a few times for food. Hit The Black Rose Irish Pub. Awesome food, drink & service. Hit the Boston Sail Loft for some great seafood. Used the subway a bit as well. Parked @ hotel & had a free shuttle from the airport bus stop & back. Used that about 4x. In salem I had some Thai soup & food, kids went to the Boston Hot Dog Co. in Salem. Yoda did great. 17.3 mpg with the ST Maxx tires on. Very comfy, even @ 80 mph. Now have almost 5k on it. Still Loving it so far. :rockon:

I was just up your way. Went to Niagara Falls. Stayed on the Canakistan side. The wife has never been there, so we told a short trip up.

I made up a quick, temporary wire loom for hooking up the ARB fridge in any vehicle, on a moments notice, using a dedicated (super heavy but still portable) battery. When I actually make them up for the 4Runner & the Power Wagon, I will use the ARB threaded socket plug & hard mount them. I will post a pic tomorrow. Challenging for me to say the least with my new "latest-greatest" phone, an S8+. Got it mostly for my music, :angry: IMHO, nothing but my uber expensive MP-3 player !!! :lol: Anyways, I had most of the stuff already, to make up the wire loom. I have + & - battery lugs ( of the proper 2 sizes for a marine d/c ), to 10 Ga wire. There is a 7.5 amp fuse about 2" from battery on the + wire. That section has a re-used 12v battery charger plug on it. The 2nd section has a re-used battery charger plug on 1 end, also 10 Ga wire, to a 12v cig/style plug. Soldered some, crimped some (with my trusty new $6.99 HF wire crimper (that works friggin awesome). Heat shrunk everything 2x each, then used some plastic wire loom over it all. Easy, peasy to install in any vehicle, even the Corolla, or my kids car. Taking a trip to Fla. soon. Will test it out then.
