Clients who own Toyota 4Runners have been bringing them to Handcrafted in Chandler, Arizona, for all their expert upgrades. Our one-stop-shop solution for audio, lighting, interior convenience and off-road performance upgrades makes enhancing your vehicle easy. Our fanatical attention to detail and thoughtful design process ensure that the work we do exceeds OEM standards and your expectations every time.
Audio System Upgrades
Even when optioned with the JBL sound system, the audio in a 4Runner is, at best, mediocre. The staff at Handcrafted are obsessive about sound quality. We carry world-class products like Audiofrog, Audison, Alpine and Hertz. Our team of installation and fabrication experts is amongst the best in the country.
Our competitors may be content with screwing new speakers into your factory locations. At Handcrafted, our goal is supreme audio performance. A custom speaker pod for a midrange and tweeter, combined with dedicated amplification and signal processing, offers a level of sound quality and detail that has only been available in esoteric home audio systems until now. Our integration of subwoofers enclosures into the side panel of the storage area ensures excellent performance while maintaining as much usable storage space as possible.
We source materials that match and complement the interior. Whether it’s carpet, vinyl, upholstery or even a custom-painted component, it has to look perfect when the job is complete. Once we complete your audio upgrade, you will think the system came from the factory, but with a sound that defies belief.
Lighting System Upgrades
When it is time to head off-road, ensuring you have adequate and reliable lighting is critical to your safety. Handcrafted has partnered with Rigid Industries and their RDS and SR series light bar, rock light, fog light and work light solutions to provide bright and reliable vision solutions. We can install HID or LED headlight upgrades or add secondary lighting systems to turn darkness into daylight.
The choice of a lighting product is important, but so is its installation. Take our roof rack light installations. We run all the wiring through the roof rack, then into the vehicle through the factory sharkfin antenna. If you need to return your vehicle to stock condition at the end of the lease, the dealership will never know we worked on it. We do not drill holes or run wiring through the door jamb. We use stainless steel fasteners to ensure decades of trouble-free performance in even the harshest environments. Everything looks as though it came from the factory.
Proper power delivery to your accessories is as important as their installation. When we are installing lights, we will include a relay box under the hood. The relay box has a single heavy-gauge connection to the battery and control wires that run to the switches. If you need to troubleshoot anything, it is all in one safe and convenient location. There is no reason to remove trim or dash panels, or hunt through a pile of relays screwed to your inner fender. We even source custom-labeled switches to make lighting and accessory systems safe and easy to operate.
Off-road Performance Improvements
If you are headed off-road to go hunting or crawl the newest trails with a few friends, then you need your truck to perform. Handcrafted takes the installation of accessories like roof racks, custom bumpers, rock sliders and onboard air compressors very seriously. Where other shops may be content to use a hacksaw to trim parts to make a bumper fit, we obsess over ensuring perfect alignment and a flawless finish, even where you cannot see our work. The Handcrafted process to trim frame rail involves cutting with military precision. We finished the modification with a file and sanding block before weatherproofing any exposed metal to prevent corrosion. Our goal is perfect fitment of each and every component, each and every time.
Just as with our audio and lighting upgrades, Handcrafted offers off-road accessory solutions from Gobi USA, CBI Offroad Fab, BajaRack and Pelfreybilt. When you are off-road, performance and reliability trump style. Your 4Runner is a tool, not a mall-crawler!
Interior Convenience and Cosmetic Upgrades
In the past few years, we have seen more than 110 days per year where the temperature here in Chandler is over 100 degrees. At those temperatures, getting into your vehicle after shopping or after work is not just uncomfortable – it can be dangerous. Grabbing a hot steering wheel, sitting on a scalding seat or trying to buckle a seatbelt latch that came straight from Hades is no fun at all. A remote starter system from Compustar can give your vehicle the time it needs to start cooling off before you get in. We can even activate the seat ventilation system if your 4Runner has one. For people with respiratory problems, this can make all the difference in the world to their comfort.
External options like the DroneMobile smartphone telematics system will let you remote start your vehicle from anywhere you and your vehicle have a cellular data connection. You can also track your vehicle using GPS and set warnings in case it moves without your knowledge.
If you are headed up to Denver or somewhere less blistering, we can add seat heater systems to make the seat bottoms toasty-warm on a chilly morning. The heaters will start working as soon as you remote start the vehicle.
Our premium window tinting can help keep your vehicle’s interior comfortable and secure. Our films make smash-and-grab break-ins much more challenging. In the event of an accident or rollover, the film will hold the glass pieces together to help prevent personal injury to the driver or passengers.
Cosmetic upgrades like leather upholstery kits are an excellent way to individualize your 4Runner. We can match the colors to your vehicle, or choose something that accents your accessories.
Off-road Suspension and Tires
The team at Handcrafted works with some of the top performance suppliers in southern Arizona. If you want new wheels and tires, or are interested in a suspension lift kit, let us help coordinate a solution. Our partners work to the same standards we do.
