PreRunner wants to be an XR. (XRU)

Just going to leave this here.

http://www.xr-underground.com/forum/...d=1#post715944

There have been guys wanting to lower the PreRunner before, but I don't recall anything like this guy wants to do.

I gave him my input. I think it's actually pretty interesting. I figure if anyone else has input, they could supply it.

you did fubar it in one place...he needs to convert to a Spring Under Axle, not a u-bolt flip kit. all that will do is get rid of the clunky plates under the rear axle and the springs will still be above it.

Maybe I misunderstood what u-bolt flip kit is for. I'm under the impression that a u-bolt flip kit basically converts the spring over to a spring under.

So can u have a 4wd 4door longbed xrunner? I've always wondered what the difference is between a regular trd vs an xrunner is. Does the xr motor have more power? I'd like to have an xrunner eventually. sigh

nope...here is what the u-boly flip does. a SUA conversion takes a bit more to do what you are thinking, but can still be done fairly easy.

u-bolt flip helps w/ under axle clearance and keeps it from getting hung up on the stock brackets under the axle.

You can't have a 4dr 4x4 XR, but you can invest a lot of time and money into making something that has similar features and loosely resembles an XR.

An XR is an AC 2wd 5-lug with 4.0, 6-speed, and some cheeseball ground effects. haha

the new 4dr 4cyl base would make a good candidate to get the exterior looking like an XR

True.

I think swapping a suspension would be easier than swapping motors in these electronically controlled beasts. Maybe?

definitely....then get a full set of the XR ground effects and another set of the ones for the cab to plastic weld into one functioning set. when it comes time to the engine, either turbo the 4cyl or drop in something bigger and badder than the stock 4.0.
