    Perfectly stock?
    They're all the same. I went with the first guy who made them. Can't remember exactly. They are one piece CNC and were like $35 shipped years back.

    I have them in mine and swear by them as well. How I tested before purchasing was by taking out the bolts and place shallow-well sockets replicating the effect. Took 5 mins to do and was instantly noticeable. I don’t remember the guys handle but he was located in FL.

    All my rigs are purpose built. From crawling to camping. I also enjoy a nice stock truck for what that’s worth. Toyota’s are the jam!
    I got mine off this guy. Not cheap, but they are (.)(.)s!

    With our family growing, we're seriously considering upgrading to a Super-C from our travel trailer. Earthroamers are too much, so we're probably going to go with a 4x4 C built on a F550 chassis. I'll do a lift, and upgrade to some 40s. Should be sweet. I won't be able to do Moab, but it'll be capable enough for gravel roads.

    That said, if we do it, I'm going to need to sell our travel trailer eventually. This thing's been sweet. I've put over $3k in upgrades in it, changing tons of stuff to improve quality and usability. The biggest upgrades are the electric split heat pump / AC (it's a residential unit that's basically silent), a big rear rack with ladder, interior changes to give us and the kids privacy, and lift plus wheels that share lugs with the Taco. We've never had any issues with it, it's a great little camper. Just too small for us.

    [​IMG]

    I'm going to remove the lift and put the factory tires back on to sell on FB marketplace, but would rather sell to someone with a Taco that'll appreciate the upgrades. Anyone interested?

    It's a Forest River Wolf Pup 16BHS. NADA list price here ($14,700 average retail): https://www.nadaguides.com/RVs/2020/Cherokee-by-Forest-River/M-16BHS/6599121/Values - we own it cash and I don't want to mess with swapping wheels or anything, so I'd let it go at $13k with all the upgrades.

    Interested.... but contingent on bonus this year will know in about a month if it’s realistic for me financially right now. GLWS if still around then I’ll have to come take a look. Looking for something just like this for the family. Tent camping is fun but with a toddler we can’t go for longer trips.

    My uncle refered him to me cause he takes all his cars there. He buys a different vehicle like every 2 months so this guy usually takes care of him. It's off lawrenceville hwy near lilburn middle school. I'm gonna keep the MTs since they don't even have 10k miles on em yet, use em in the Summer for when I can go on trails since the weather will be better. I got these wildpeaks for $97 a piece new so thought I'd use em during the winter

    Yeah, there's a thread about it in the 3rd gen section, but apparently on Tuesday, Pepboys fucked up and put them down to $97 from $294 when they meant to do that for another tire that was being discontinued. It was only at that price for a few minutes. Someone else texted me about it so I jumped on it. I honestly thought it wouldn't work out and that they'd cancel the order, or try to cheat me outta them but shit they came in next day

    I got the 1" for the rear mounts because I'm short. It helps with long drives.
