    Sliders up next, then I'll start saving for front and rear bumpers, maybe a few lockers and a regear, a roof rack. Pretty much the works over time, and by time I mean like 3-4 years because of college and what not.

    And it's okay you have a secret love for T4R's I have one for Taco's which is probably why I'm on this website.

    Not shabby my friend. I'll be on looking this build. I remember when i was 16 and started my build thread.. almost 4 years later, it looks like a damn beast. :cool:

    Yours will be similar I'm sure.

    Thanks man. I do the same, when I bought the 4runner I was actually at the dealer looking at a taco, but this was a better deal and it had a V8 so I couldn't say no.

    Are you really running 700 lb springs w/out a bumper? How's the ride? I have 650s on my Kings w/out bumper, but haven't driven them yet.

    Yes 700lb springs. I removed my front sway and the ride is great. Perfectly smooth on road and still comfortable offroad. My front end is still smoother than my dads 2010 stock F150.

    Went up to Uwharrie on August 17th to do some wheeling with other 4runner guys. It was a great time and no one broke anything.
