Happy Friday everyone!
Did you know that all later editions of the Toyota 4Runner and the new 2013 model are  equipped with with a PARTY MODE button?
Pressing the “Party Mode” button will not make a DJ or a disco ball appear out of nowhere but it will  boosts the stereo’s bass and push the equalization to the two back speakers, which makes it perfect for a tailgate party.

“Standard on all audio systems is a unique “Party Mode” audio setting that is ideal for tailgating, raises bass response and shifts sound balance to the rear of the vehicle. Party mode is in addition bolstered by rear liftgate-mounted speakers, which function with or without party mode selected.”
