SO I got my first rav this weekend. My aunt moved to Ireland and gave me a great deal! The huskies sure appreciate the extra room in the back. It's 100% stock. I need to educate myself on the AWD/4WD system and how it all works but I would eventually like to look into some mods like a lift and beefier tires.

This weekend coming up the mods will be minor:
Install and wire in the new Escort Radar Detector with mirror mount
Swap out the OEM radio for a double din full Android (with google play & wifi) stereo
Maybe tint the windows if I have time.

Pictures of before/after/and a small "how to" write up will follow these.


I live in Maine currently, but am moving to El Paso, TX in June.

If I am correct, this is the type of AWD system that requires all four tires be changed in the event 1 goes beyond patchable repair, but I am not sure and that is one of my biggest questions. I haven't had time to read the owners manual just yet.

I don't plan on making this thing a mud bogger by any means, but I like to do some back woods camping and want it to be able to clear and move through semi-rugged terrain.


Thanks!!!

Roughly 75,600 or so on the RAV. I like being up high for a change (my other 2 cars are an 02 WRX and an 08 Legacy GT Limited) and the ride quality is pretty nice. Thanks for the links and info!
