Got this off of google so it's shitty quality, but it's the only picture I found that shows the area... Do you see that plastic storage area below the lighter and ash tray? I'm not sure if all 4runner models had it, but both of my 2nd gens did so I assume yours will. That storage area is held in place by two little plastic clamps. I got rid of those and let it just sit there. It fits snug so it won't fall down, yet it comes out easily if you pull on it from the right angle. Behind that is the a/c outlets and quite a bit of room- more than you'll find near the fuses. That's what I used, hope it works for you too
one on each side... Kind of hard to explain and they're really bizarre little things. I just called them clamps because I couldn't think of anything else to call them. When I pulled my dash apart to put in my deck I actually broke them because I couldn't figure out how the hell to get them off. I just used a flathead screwdriver to pry them off and that's that- never really missed them. Of course Toyota couldn't do the normal thing and use normal screws or bolts tlike what's used on the rest of the dash. Anyways, you'll figure it out when you have a chance to look at your truck- my explanation makes it sound alot harder than it is.
btw props on driving a 4runny... even though I consider my tacoma an upgrade, I still miss my old rusty beast dearly
