The 4runner I was building was traded today for this. The trans is bad so obviously that will be the first objective. I tried the Toyota thing but I just really prefer full size vehicles. Lots of plans already. I will say the thing drives good even with only having 1st and 3rd gears. Plus I can sleep in the back :)20181111_134918.jpeg

Before building this up I decided to take it out to the Daniel Boone national forest to see what it could do in stock form. Turns out 35s would be ideal. I did an easier trail. I'll show some pics of how I had it laid out tomorrow. I will say the antenna on the front guard is the way to go. One thing I'll do sooner than later is redoing to console. We had stuff flying off there all day.

Something to think about is what lift. Frame clearance wasnt an issue but axle from ground was. I seriously considering a body lift. I have been daily driving this and I like the idea of maintaining stock parts and stock geometry. 20181123_161719.jpeg20181123_145508.jpeg20181123_135231.jpeg20181123_124850.jpeg20181123_122248.jpeg

If you put a drop bracket lift kit on you can maintain stock cv angles and keep the ride stock smooth , mine had a 6 inch kit but I turned the torsion down and got it to more like 5" and it cleared 35s with no rubbing even with wheels with less offset to keep it in almost inside the fenders .20180623_160026.jpg

it did have a small amount of rub on the back fenders under full stuff but that can be fixed with bumpstops2018-05-21_01-03-14.jpg

Looking at that bumper...what brand is it? Ive got a 99 Hoe and am looking for something simple like this.

I wish I had the tools to make a bumper and a place to do it lol. I worked at a shop one time and I could use it after hours. Built lots of good stuff back then. While I've been thinking about what tires I want to go with I've been playing around with where to mount things. I dont think I'll be able to make the console look good enough for my taste but I'll give it a try. 20181129_205439.jpeg20181204_201814.jpeg

Yeah that console piece looks like a little too much. Bigger is not always better.

On another note, if that bumper ever goes on the market, let me know
