Yep. The only major differences between the earlier and later models were the switch to VVTi (and 35 more horsepower) in 2005, the availability of KDSS starting in 2005 (I think), and the improved stereo options from 2006 on.I’m currently in the market for one, preferably 08-09. Does this checklist applies for all model years?
I plan on swapping over my king shock setup on my 05 4runner. Can I remove KDSS completely?Yep.

What is "nice maintenance?" Are all the above items addressed? Is the frame clean? If the truck is clapped out and major services put off or done 50k miles ago, thrashed interior, mismatched tires and frame with rust everywhere, yeah it is expensive.Thank you so much for the help, I added them all up.
1. Rust underneath
2. transfer case leaking
3. rear air suspension
4. timing belt serpentine belt
5. codes and if emissions codes indicating that the SAIS system is failing/ has failed
6. Steering rack,
11. If it’s pearl white the paint peels
By the way, I saw one with nice maintenance, 2004, 200k miles, pearl white, ask for $8000, it is expensive?
I believe so. I haven't paid much attention the KDSS-specific parts, but I believe the biggest changes for KDSS are rear axle sway bar mounting points.I plan on removing front and rear sway bars all together like my 4runner. There’s just more articulation with the bars removed. But even with KDSS the shock, spring, UCA, aftermarket rear 4 links are interchangeable correct?
