Tony my friend there can never be too many Pic's of your beauty, hope all goes well with the full treatment. Yes have seen a few videos of the Avalon king Ceramic and it looks a good product so let me know what you think when all done.

The wiring for the taillights in the petrol models are exactly the same as the hybrid models. However, putting the nicer lights in isn't plug and play. You would have to separate the power from the brake light wire that goes to the rear running lights.
Some things genuine are just plain criminal, and don't for one minute think you are getting a superior product. When I bought a Brand New Hilux back in 2007, I went and got a set of headlight protectors from Supercheap, they were made in NZ and they kept their clarity even 10 years later .
Suss out this mob, might have what you want price wise

Maximum Torque on the 3.4 v6 is around 3600rpm, so if lugging up a hill in O/D , as Rodirico suggested when you are approaching a hill where you know its going to start lugging trying to pull, flick it out of O/D and let the engine spin a bit, so it gets in the sweet spot, certainly wont hurt it revving a bit, do it more good than lugging it in o/d
I went to Bunnings and got a roll of Rubber Matting back in 2020 was then $60 and cut to fit...I'm sure it's cheaper than Toyota.
Same here Rob. Weeks of continuous/ intermittent rain and the tyranny of life events have hindered my routine.
My coating has long since gone to God mate. It's flat as a tack right now. I have some Avalonking Armour Shield ceramic coating sitting here, so I might as well put it to work.
I'm going to get a friend to help me with this one as it's going to require more elbow grease then normal. Full decontamination, clay bar, machine polish, coating including the wheels. Engine bay will also get a clean too. Then there's the interior....
I might tackle that before I head over to his place for the exterior treatment.
For sure mate. There will be quite a few I imagine 😄
thanks Dan. im still trying to get to the bottom of this. the bags themselves dont appear to be an issue- not leaking and work fine with the height adjustment.
still trying to get to the bottom of it.
thanks for the link. just need to work out how to tell the ECU that the bags are disconnected i guess?
