Mall Crawl… and Beyond! – 17 Super White 5th Gen 4Runner Builds, Everything from Mall Crawlers, to Overlanders, Offroad Builds and more

This Weeks Topic: Super White 4Runners

Well, it is time again to focus on the WHOLE RIG vs a single modification. We will be focusing on the most popular color for the 5th gen 4Runner, and that is, Super White. This Feature Friday was a fun one for me because I was able to see how different, such a common colored 4Runner can be from one another. Super White and Blizzard Pearl have had their share of “bad luck” in the past for Toyota, to the point that Toyota USA had to issue a recall for customers’ paint for both pealing and fading. Some customers’ paint peeled so bad, that you could see the bare metal, INSANE! Super White is a single-stage paint from Toyota that requires a good amount of care/wax. So keep your rig looking good and your paint shining, and you shouldn’t have an issue.

Each 4Runner listed below has its own purpose from a daily driver, to a family overland rig, and everything in between. Below you will find 17 Super White 4Runners with a handful of wheel combinations, suspension setups, RTT/roof rack options, and also one with some killer PINK powder coat!

These featured rigs are in no particular order, but definitely show all of them some love by following their builds over on Instagram.

Enjoy and have a great weekend!

If you want to be featured on Feature Friday next week, submit your build through Trail4R.com/feature. We will be featuring ROCK SLIDERS next week. If this is you, and you enjoy your SLIDER setup, send in your rig some details about your build because we want to see it and know ALL the details!

Before I even had 1500 miles on this rig, I took it to Calico, CA (Phillips Loop & Kramer’s Arch) to see what a bone stock 4Runner was capable of. To my surprise, it performed AMAZING. After that trip, the build process had begun. Every part had been thought out and planned for. I was fortunate enough in having great overland/wheeling minds around me. Being able to pick their brains during the process of this build made it fairly easy in choosing what parts to go with. If I want to hit the trails with the boys or have a weekend getaway camping trip in the desert, this rig is more than capable of that. (Or even a trip to the grocery store). Truly happy about how versatile my 4Runner has been during these last 2 1/2 years. Every stage of this build has taught me many lessons along the way. Hoping 2022 will bring more blessings and rig parts. Big shoutout to Showstoppers Off-Road, RS AutomotiveWorks, 88 Rotors Off-Road, JH Garage, and everyone else who has assisted during this builds journey! Last but not least, thank you to my SCUMBAGS OFF-ROAD FAMILY!

  • Dobinsons IMS Lift, 2.5″ Lift
  • Yokohama Geolandar MT G003 (285/70/17)
  • Stealth Custom Series Ray10 -38mm offset
  • LFD Ruggedized crossbars on factory rails
  • Specialty Products Company UCAs
  • Apex Overland front recovery points
  • Southern Style Offroad rock sliders
  • Black vinyl-wrapped front and rear valences
  • 4Runnerlifestyle license plate LED kit


  • Teton Workshop shifter
  • Lasfit LED bulb swap
  • Husky floor liners
  • Jecar MOLLE rear cargo window panels


My build is a daily driver first and a weekend warrior second. This means that it still needs to do things like fit inside parking garages and haul today’s giant stroller in the trunk.

I went with the Dobinsons IMS because it seemed like a good budget middle ground of something like the Bilstein 6112s and an entry-level ICON kit. So far, the suspension runs great off-road and is firm on pavement, in a controlled way. In addition, I also have the SPC UCAs that in combination with a fairly aggressive BMC, ensure I have zero rubbing with -38 offset wheels.

I had concerns about going with MTs for a family vehicle, but those have now gone away as the faint rolling drone actually serves as a white noise machine and the family will sleep like rocks in the back on trips. I haven’t had much of an impact on MPG and the amount of grip these Yokos provide is insane.

If you have a family (as I do), sliders or some type of side step is a must on a lifted rig – so I chose to kill two birds with one stone in the sliders to both protect it and make sure the wife could get in without hanging onto the door for dear life.

Other exterior mods include the Southern-Style Offroad rock sliders, LFD Offroad crossbars, and Stealth Custom Series Ray10s wrapped in Yokohama MTs.

A Pelican case is currently inbound to mount on the LFD Offroad crossbars, as I found out on a recent family trip that I need a bit more storage space for those longer hauls.

Inside, I’ve swapped out the interior LEDs with red bulbs to not wake the kiddo at night. Other mods include a shifter from Teton Workshops, rear headrest grab handles to get in, and added MOLLE panels to the cargo windows to mount family essentials like paper towels and first-aid.

Overall, my rig suits my needs perfectly – I don’t currently have the flexibility to go all-out on a build, but also don’t want to drive a run-of-the-mill crossover. I still love firing up that ancient V6 with the overcompensating loud start-up fan, knowing that wherever our family decides to go, we’ll get back home without a hitch.

My favorite thing has to be my Solar Setup! It’s a nerd flex but I love it. After installing the Renogy 100w panel my fridge is completely powered by the sun full time. I don’t have to worry at all about my fridge losing power. Food and drinks stay cold. I mounted the panel on my roof with the ability to tilt to get extra light during certain hours. One cool thing is that Renogy has an app that you can connect via Bluetooth to the system to check all vitals and what your battery charge rate is at. If you upgrade to their batteries and inverter you can also see consumption rates as well. I do not have this capability right now, but when it’s time to upgrade from my deep cycle battery there will be an enhanced experience via the app. Something to look forward to as I continue the build-out.

What I like most about this setup is that it keeps my rig relatively lightweight. I know we can sometimes get carried away with adding everything out there. For me, this is perfect for the weekend adventure from light to medium wheeling yet still being a daily driver with decent miles per gallon. The mods selected on this build were chosen based on the type of wheeling I do. From the bumper to allow a winch for those times I get into situations, to lights for night wheeling. I’m sure things will as change many builds do, but for now, at its current state, and it has been solid.

I love how it is just enough without being too much. I can take it from the beach in Santa Cruz to snowboarding in Tahoe and I don’t feel out of place. I love the look the Viper Cut gives it with the tires and the tread of the Ko2 tires. I love that I can throw anything on the top I want and head out camping or just strap 2 kayaks on the rack and then the paddleboard through the back window and get out of town.
It runs like a champ, ride height is perfect as well as how it handles the road rain or shine. It fits exactly what I want and need from it. Navigating through the snow in the winter and heading to the lake in the summer, and every daily commute to work (Kaiser) in between. My kids love it and so does my fiancé (who has a 2016 MGM SR5).

Exterior Mods:

  • Suspension: Bilstein 5100 set at 2 1/2” of lift with OME (Old Man Emu) 880 Coil Springs in the rear

  • Front Bumper Setup: Southern Style Offroad (SSO) Slimline Hybrid Front Bumper w/20” HEISE LED light bar. Also added SSO Stage 2 High Clearance Protection pieces.
  • Winch: Smittybilt X2O 10K Waterproof Synthetic Rope 10klb Wireless Winch, Gen2 with Fairlead
  • Amazon Ditch Lights, until we upgrade them!
  • Raptor style LED lights in the front grille
  • Lamin-X Fog Light Covers, over OEM fog lights; in ‘pink’ (since I get asked ALL the time about those!)
  • Rigid Radiance+ 30” Amber Backlight LightBar
  • Roof Rack: Gobi 5th Gen Stealth Rack
  • ARB 2500×2500 Touring Awning w/ light.
  • We also have the ARB deluxe annex room with floor which is awesome for camping out!
  • SSO 5th Gen 2010+ 4Runner Rock Sliders with custom color design.
  • Custom Powdercoat Pink items: with Prismatic Powders in ‘Sassy Pink’ solid color, topped with ‘Clear Lights’ clear coat.
  • Custom Powdercoated rear items: Prismatic Powders-Alpine White to match close to Toyota Super White 040 paint for the rear bumper.
  • Coastal Offroad 5th Gen 4Runner Low Profile Rear Bumper with duel Jerry Can and Spare Tire Swing Outs

Interior Mods:

  • Upgraded all interior lighting to LED light bulbs
  • Radio Head Unit: Kenwood DMX1057DR Excelon 10.1” Floating Radio
  • Custom powder coated pink Molle panels
  • Homemade drawer system: Credit is due to my husband who took the time to make a drawer system that still allows us to have the rear seats up to use.


Having the custom pink powder coating done has definitely made my ride stand out in a sea of white 4Runners. I didn’t want a ton of pink on my ride, but just enough to make it stand out. We powder coated the front & rear D-Ring shackles, winch fairlead, tow hitch receiver, and the SSO sliders (custom color layout), and our shovel because why not!

One thing I learned when looking for the pink I ordered, was that not all “pink” is a true pink! Some were purple, some were peachy colored.

I am glad I took the time to order the swatches before jumping the gun and sending a color to my powder coat guy. I also learned you can’t expect to get the powder coat color from the swatch if the item was not already chromed. That definitely played into choosing our custom color, as I did not want the unnecessary cost of chroming pieces before powder coating them with a whole different color!

My best interior upgrade is the radio head unit, one of the best upgrades I’ve done! The only downside is that it does stick out, and partially blocks the air vents. However, this is a minor inconvenience for what this radio head unit offers! Toyota did NOT upgrade the head unit to connect for Apple CarPlay in their 2019 models which were pretty rudimentary for being such a newer vehicle. I can go more in-depth just on this head unit, but that’s another story. I highly recommend it!

The build is never done, as there is always something that can be done to help improve your ride and help make trail runs safer!

I’m a “buy once, cry once” kind of guy, but I also am on a budget. I did a lot of research on every mod I did to my rig before purchasing anything to try to get the most bang for my buck, but also trying not to sacrifice quality. I definitely can say that doing most of the work myself was probably the most enjoyable part of my build. Any work that I could not perform myself, was passed on to a local shop in my town that does exceptional work. I still look forward to more self-installed mods. Turning my GF onto the exciting world of Overlanding, and meeting all the great people along the way is something I always enjoy. Get out there and explore !!

  • Dometic 55IM and EcoFlow Delta 1300 with cheap Chinese panels
  • Blackout Emblems for +5HP
  • Remote Rear Window mod
  • Always on power
  • Waterport Weekender


Everything has a purpose. I spent hours researching (big up, Trail4r) and chatting with the community to build a trail-friendly, 95% road, and remote-worthy rig with a ton of interior space. Traveling to different trails, routes and excursions require a lot of road travel, so I made sure that I had the wheels to take a beating and tires that could handle 90% of what I wanted. I’ve done parts of Fordyce, lots of spots on the Rubicon, and most of the Oregon Coast with this loadout.

The camp gear is essential to my trips. The Waterport Weekender for showers and dishes, fridge for chilly C- and EcoFlow for the work/life balance. Roam makes phenomenal (and sometimes expensive) products, but that awning has gotten a lot more useful than I would’ve imagined. I really value having a cozy interior so the roof rack was a must. The sliders have been rested on (almost full weight). The ladder helps me get to my storage bags, and also allows me to steadily target shoot.

It’s a build that allows me to trek alone or with my family (better half pictured). And that’s what I value most

Being the foundation of my whole build, the Dobinson’s MRR suspension has to be my favorite part of my rig. Once I began adding more weight to my build, I knew I was going to need to upgrade my suspension and not cheap out on it. Since I loved my previous Dobinson’s twin-tube suspension, I opted for their premium MRR kit with full long travel in the rear. It’s been a blast dialing in the long travel and I’ve been amazed at how much the extra flex and articulation helps while rock crawling. I didn’t want to be limited to what kind of wheeling I could do because I added an RTT and the Dobinson’s helped me with just that. I’m now able to be comfortably loaded with all my camp gear while wheeling as hard as I’d like, whether it be climbing rocks or blasting 50mph down fire roads.

Final Thoughts:

Well, I hope that if you are a Super White 4Runner owner, that you gained some inspiration from this week’s Feature Friday. I also hope that everyone was about to get some upgrade ideas for their build as well because as we all know, the build is never finished. Right?!? Thanks all for your time! Seeya next week!

If you would like to be considered for next week’s Feature Friday, we will be showcasing some ROCK SLIDERS (for 5th Gen 4Runners). We want to get inspired by a variety of setups, submit your build for Feature Friday and you might get featured. If you would like to submit your build for next week, include your setup details and an awesome photo that shows it off. Have a great weekend guys!!

Nobody with a Limited? I well and truly get that the other trims are incredible, but Ls deserve love too! Working on mine and it’s a little sad not to see some Limited love. 🙁

2014 Super White SR5 owner…love the guys rocking the SR5s. It seems like the TRD Pro & OR/Trails get all of the spotlight…SR5s can do the business also.

Super white might be as delicate as baby’s skin, but I love it – mine gets chipped just from ripping down forest roads haha.

Glad (I guess) to see I’m not the only one. Bought a 2021 Venture in February and had over 20 rock chips before I’d had it 2 weeks. All highway driving. Not very impressed to say the least. Surprised there hasn’t been a recall.

I have to agree it’s been that way with ours as well and the Tundra we used to own was that way as well.
