    Great thread. Congrats on the suspension Brandon. I really hope this is one of the first mods to my 2013 TRD Offroad.

    Got to finally test the suspension on some dirt this weekend after adding the cradles. Man, so much better.

    Short clip, nothing crazy.

    On regular street driving it wasn't a big deal at all only needed to trim the front fenders a little...Then I went wheeling this weekend. I took off my front fenders because I knew i hadn't trimmed them enough yet and didn't have time to work on that. In the rear on the other hand I thought I was good... I was wrong. When the tires would articulate back and forth I got quite a bit of rubbing at the front of the rear wheel wells. I am going to end up having the wheel wells cut bigger and the fenders made smaller to create a bunch more clearance.

    Disclaimer: I drove on some serious trails and had the suspension flexing from full droop to full stuff.

    I hear that. I want to run 35's at some point so I will eventually be chopping/cutting all kinds of stuff.

    Nice Video LittleBlue. Wish we had places to ride like that around here. All we have is the beach.

    I like this Baja setup as opposed to going with the ICON, OME, whatever. I don't have any experience with the others, but I like the idea it's Toyota approved and apparently highly-functional.

    This will fit on my SR5 correct? I have the 4-leaf pack from the factory, and I could still add a 5th leaf correct?

    I think this would work fine for me with some real skid plates from front to back, do something about that V6 exhaust crossover, and 265's or 285's.
