    I'm priveledged to get a 1st time poster on my build, thanks. As far as your question I don't have a 100% FOR SURE answer. I do know that it will be difficult but not impossible. Your 3" body lift is definitely helping you out in that regard. Your biggest enemies are going to be the rubbing and clearing upper control arms. There is some trimming you can do in the fender wells and aftermarket UCA's will help you with some width clearance.

    I took off the running boards bc they don't really work out well in the rocks lol. They were one of the first things I ditched. I didn't have them long enough to even find out if they would have rubbed or not.

    Day to day, I do not rub on the roads or turning at all. Offroad is another story.

    The past couple weeks I been doing a few odds and ends.

    Changed out my front sway bar bushings. This was the driver side, the passenger side was worse!

    [​IMG]

    Got the ol' dremel out and put my 3 switch holder in.

    [​IMG]

    Moved my cb anttena mount to the corner since my light bar took it's place.

    [​IMG]

    Cut and re-plated my BAMF sliders to clear the 35's :(

    [​IMG]

    Got some warm white led lights in my overhead and replaced the passenger visor light with an led as well. Ought to freak out the gf lol

    That's bout it. Plan to attack the passenger side lower ball joint and both tie rods this week.

    Got me some parts..

    [​IMG]

    Here's the culprit of the side to side wheel wobble. It was loose as hell.

    [​IMG].

    The otr and lbj were noticeably warn, but otherwise in good shape. I'll definitely be keeping them for trail spares.

    Then got an alignment.

    [​IMG]

    Lastly, I had a box waiting for me when I got home yesterday. Since I ordered the rears separately, looks like I'll be waiting a little longer for them. I love these things.

    Those seat covers look great, I wanted to get a set of those but decided to spend my $$ on suspension stuff first.

    Went out to a club function this past weekend at the offroad park. Had a blast. The rain definitely put a damper on things and made the trails a little more difficult. You can tell in the videos down below. Enjoy!

    So I eventually made it up this.. It was just so slick the guy videoing had to stop and help spot. I was going so slow cus I didn't want to break anything. Was a really fun and tough trail though. Had many 1-2 ft steps to get over.

    Simple trail here videoing from my iphone go pro mount. Just riding a trail for a little bit.

    When I got home, my rear wet okole's had came in. So after I unpacked everything I decided to put them on. Lucky, I already had the bottoms out from camping in the 4Runner all weekend. I'm very happy with how they turned out. Just seems like I'm driving a whole new truck.

    Very nice T4R!!! The LX wheels look bad ass, man. That rig would even make an FJ80 guy a little excited.

    Thanks, but you can't marry her.. sorry lol

    Thanks! I've seen some damn nice LC80's I wish I could have had but this tank is big enough for me.



    I guess while I'm here I can throw up more pics. Went wheeling a couple weekends ago. Just went out for a day trip. Aside from a few new dings :(, it was a blast.
