Damn good start if you ask me! The grill isnt cheesy, i have the same 4Runner emblem and get compliments alll the time but i did a satoshi instead if grillcraft. & building your own stuff is the way to go! I built my sliders for under $100 and my rear bumper for $300!
Goodluck with building upper arma and cheap coilovers though. There has been alot of talk here wih folks wanting to build their own ucas & as far as ive seen only one member with a 2nd gen built his own LT kit with success.

Oh and on the spacer, they just preload the coilover assembly the same way bilsteins provide lift with the stock coils which is why most go with the eibach setup so there isnt pre load. & it rides better.

well it wont be long travel, as i dont want to deal with new cv shafts and what, but more like the camburg stock arms to help with the alignment. i have build a few arms in the past so should be to hard to setup a jig and go to town

and has anybody ran FOA shocks on their first gen? i run them on my fj40 and was thinking of picking some up to try out.

and this still baffles my mind. i could understand if i put the spacer between the spring and the shock, but this is placed above the shock just pushing it down.

Yep, and doing that compresses the shock which stiffens the ride

Nice TIG welds! I wish you were closer because I'd trade you my black fender flares for your silver ones in a heartbeat!
