How to program a transponder key in a 2003-2006 Toyota 4runner

How to add a new transponder key to your toyota 4runner when you have the master key present. You need to purchase a blank toyota key (from ebay, amazon, etc..) then follow the instructions. Here is a visual of what you are supposed to do:

I have only tried this on my 2003 4runner SR5, so I am not positive that this will work with any other model years, but those instructions were lifted from a manual that stated it would work through the 2006 model year.
