This has happened twice now, it's a super noob move, but I think that taller bumpstops would be the fix (that and choosing a better line).
The video shows the mistake.
BACKGROUND: I have a Gen 4 rear end in my Gen 3 4Runner. It's wider than the original. The rear is lifted about 3" with OME...

Some of you may remember me, if yes, hello.
Some may not, nice to meet you.
Thanks to a couple of @Michael 's YouTube videos for getting me to log back in - great content man.
I have had some changes in my adventuring. In addition to my Gen3 4Runner, I have added a...
Here in Southern California, many of the places I go adventuring require metal fire pits.
It's really gotten me thinking. In the spirit of Tread Lightly, I'm finding myself more and more against building fires on the ground... even in an established, old fire ring. I also pack out my ashes.

If you notice, in his left hand, he is holding something.
This is what Henry was holding, I think it was part of a hinge for a chain-link fence.

We are doing a road trip in my 2001 4Runner over Thanksgiving week.. the first 2 days we will be in Death Valley. I know that there are tons of amazing dirt roads.

We are renting a Jeep (99% sure it's 2WD) for the whole trip..
Any cakewalk trails in the area we should check out?
Hope no one minds the approximately...
I've been watching the videos on YouTube for ages now.. figured it was time to jump into the forum.
I have an ever evolving 2001 4Runner SR5 that I use to adventure around the west.
Here are a few shots from my last trip.. Joshua Tree and the surrounding areas with my girlfriend...
