    Felt a lot of guilt at the time spent away from the family in the garage or on trips dicking around on off-road stuff, so I’m taking a sabbatical. Sold the bouncer and bought a family oriented adventure. Having a blast planning/prepping and tweaking things here and there.

    Excited to spend time with my babies and make some good memories. Maybe later in the year we will get a four door Rubicon and get them out in the dirt. Whatever it is, I just want to spend what little free time I have making memories with my family.

    Other things keeping me busy in my spare time. Playground is coming together. That’s a whole log of fat wood I got out of a massive dead pine. I get really excited about finding that stuff :rofl:

    I’m living my best life out in the country. Like taking the leash off a dog lol

    Well I held out as long as I could. Couldn’t do a jeep, so I grabbed a third gen 4Runner. Excited to ruin another Toyota! :D

    Just ordered a JD lt kit. Going to keep this one simple :fingerscrossed: going to do a three link rear with 14” smoothies- canned solution from OPT off-road. 4.88, lockers, 35’s armor and done. Hopefully lol

    @JTFisherman I reread your build thread this morning before I got it and I’ve got some questions for you later since you’ve done all the research and development lol

    I’m so pumped you bought this haha.

    I know you are a man of action and I’m getting tired of dumb people on fb talking about doing shitty mods to these.

    Hahaha I’m afraid mine is going to be a copy paste easy peasy boring build. Trying to research all I can now and definitely have had you in mind. Did you find any good rear sway options? Not sure if I could make the stock sway work with this and 14” smoothies-

    I know a three link kit from Barnes/wherever would be cheaper, but this seems like what I need out of the box. I don’t want to reinvent the wheel with this thing. Any other good rear long travel stuff out there you’ve seen?

    I may come watch and ride with someone if there’s a spare seat. Just parked the 4Runner in the garage last night to start tearing it down. Will be a few months before she’s ready.

    just read through the entire build(s) thread. Solid stuff you've got going on and glad you've kept this up to date throughout all the different builds. Now time to sit back and watch the next build madness unfold :popcorn:
