As of 3 hours ago, finally picked up my '24 from a dealer in small town KS. Original order was a '35 Avalanche truck - that truck is still in Dearborn - 1/17 blend. Found this build on the way and picked it up! Carbonized Grey, Panoroof, bed liner, Folding tonneau. Dealer gave me a great number on my 6 month old 4Runner.

Cliff notes:

1. CG was not my first color choice but I love it. Metallic flake looks great!
2. Audio - I cant notice the speakers missing. Still great sound if you're not an audiophile, still terrible if you are.
3. Wheels - I was in the camp of the 35pkg wheels being fugly. In person, they are better than I expected. Methods, RTR's or takeoffs might still be in the works but I will give them a shot.
4. Refreshed lights/fascia - I personally think the truck looks great. Then again, I also don't think it looks that much different than the pre-refresh '23.
5. Heads up Display - Digging the Baja mode view the most.
6. Overall - Loved my '21, loved my '23, so far so good with the '24.

For those still waiting - good luck! It's worth it.

Nice ride and CG is a nice color. Regarding your cliff notes, all good points and feel upgrading #2 will make your commutes even better.

You said “It’s worth it”…that seems to be a running theme around here.

Lol, it’s hard to leave these trucks alone. As for audio upgrades, that’ll all depend on your budget and the sound you’re looking for. You can peruse this thread for some ideas and if you do decide to take that dive, do it the right way.

have you noticed that after you choose what shortcut you want in the FAV( lower bar center display). The title does not use an ellipsis, it just fades the title. Can you confirm that is what your 2024 is doing also.
