I'll try to put before and after pics together from the same angle so you can see the difference.

Are you still running the wheel spacers? And if so have you noticed much more than average wear on the stearing?

Probably not. Sorry. There are quite a few good options out there for skids. Check out the RAT Products skids here on TW. They seem like a decent set. Of course you could always get BudBuilts or Skidrow skids too. I really doubt I could do them any cheaper than those options.

Yes, still running the wheel spacers. I haven't noticed any extra steering wear as a result of the spacers.

Not yet, but I'm trying to tackle it this week if I can find the time. I leave Wednesday to chase for Canguro Racing for the Vegas to Reno race so it might have to wait until next week if I can't get to it before Wednesday.

But I've been in situations where that little bit of the Tg bumper sticking out past the fenders is what saved them

just about 3", but it's probably settled to somewhere closer to 2.75". I also have a 1" body lift.

the protection seems to be just fine. the bumper still sticks out farther than the front part of the new fenders so I think it will work well.

I just got back from Nevada where I have been working with Canguro Racing as part of their Chase Crew. We just raced the Best in the Desert - Vegas to Reno race, which is the longest offroad race in the US. Canguro Racing has moved up from their Class 5 race car (an unlimited air cooled VW based buggy) and this was our first race in the new race vehicle....a new model 200 Series Toyota Land Cruiser with 5.7L V8. We race in Class 8 (Stock Fullsize) but for this race we raced in the Sportsman class since it was the first race in the new car. We finished 2nd in Sportman but would have also finished 2nd in Class 8. What an incredible week and a totally successful race. We had a 2hr lead with approx 120 miles to go and had some suspension failure that took a while to get fixed and we got passed in the process. We still finished and came in 2nd in class. This Land Cruiser is LOTS faster than the class 5 car we've been racing. I'll share more later but here's a few photos of the new truck from the race.






If you have been following the Toyota TRD Pro Series trucks you might now that Toyota is prepping a TRD Pro Series Tundra to race the Baja 1000 in November. They will also race in the Stock Fullsize class and we'll be racing head to head against them in Baja. We're looking forward to beating the Toyota Factory Race team :P Here is a photo of the Toyota TRD Pro Tundra that was just recently completed to begin testing for Baja.

Hey man, did you do the BL yourself? I'm contemplating going this route... Any tips? I read good things about 4crawler so I'll probably go with them.

Yep did it myself. Wasn't hard, just took some time. Only thing to remember is to disconnect the fuel filler neck too. That's an easy one to forget.

No need for a fuel filler extension. There is room to stretch it. Just need to undo the bracket inside the wheel well. You will need the spacer for the steering though.
