Hey there just wanted to share my build on a 2011 RAV4 V6 Limited AWD I picked up at Copart. I've had an '08 Scion xB as my daily for a year and a half and really liked it, i've done some functional modifications and a few appearance and performance modifications. It shares a lot with the RAV4 so there was a lot of cross over there. I installed 4.3 RAV4 suspension to lift it quite a bit, was going to install a bull bar since the RAV brackets bolted right up the front subframe since they are identical. After all the mods I was pretty happy but really wanted push button start, passive keyless entry and AWD would be nice too. After reading and seeing how the V6 was pretty quick, sounded great with exhaust I also needed a V6. Problem was they hold their value so damn well, a '09+ V6 AWD Limited wasn't going to come cheap so I started browsing Copart and picked up one with minor rear end damage for $5k.
Want to thank TEKSMRT since his build inspired me to pull the trigger and follow by example on my mods. I've been waiting to post this until my post count was high enough to include photos so i'll be adding the mods since in following posts right now!

Testing fit of SAP rear door.
Rear floor pan cut out, replaced with OEM replacement parts.
Picked up some 19" Lexus RC350 AWD F-Sport wheels for a great deal, paired with 245/45R19 Firestone Firehawk Indy500 Tires.
Repairs all finished! Just need to finish rear door which I have Blizzard Pearl pieces for from a RAV4 EV and going to wrap the center section satin black with a black door handle and tint my tail lights.
For performance i've just done a short intake until I pull the front bumper and make it CAI, Jet Performance MAF sensor, tune by R9ktuned and custom 2.5" exhaust with a 14" Corsa muffler. Muffler offers some pretty nice sound, but zero drone and highway speeds/rpms it is stock level quiet. Pretty amazing.
