    fair point, bypasses are frickin expensive, I ended up buying used to save like 2k, that and the 9+ month lead time last year…

    No reason you couldn’t just set the truck up on coils and add the bypasses later
    Assuming you knew the length of the bypass extended and collapsed to make your shock tower

    I’ve got bypasses because the leafs. I’d need coil overs. If I had to budget it I’d reuse the current bypass and then upgrade later. But yeah. Still short like $2k for shocks.

    Including the cost of the truck? I doubt it - man that's about what I have including the price of the truck :eek: How much of that is paying for install / labor costs though?

    I thought about it but Steve from dirt designs said I would probably overheat the shit out of the oil running in the desert on a regular 2.5” shock only.

    And I refuse to add up what’s into mine…lol

    “Friends” made me add it up a few years ago. Including cost of the truck brand new in 2011 I’m $85k ish. Including iterations of suspension. So start to finished product realistically closer to $65-70k if you ex nay the mid travel years.

    Edit: that is including the price of the truck which was $38k new.

    Honestly 30% of that cost is labor because I lack fabrication skills. So call it 20k in parts + cost to have Harry set up my truck. These are the big cons to living in an apartment and not having friends with workspaces.

    At least the money was well spent. I’ve seen guys on here and on ig pay that much and have to completely redo the entire truck.

    Greetings warlords, I have an almost support vehicle question. I'm researching hitch mounted cargo baskets, or bumpers. I have a stock 5gen 4runner. I am specifically interested in something with enough capacity to carry two wheels cargo off the rear. Browsing casually, I haven't seen pics of such a setup. I'm new to hitch cargo.

    Do hitch cargo baskets exist, can they load 300+ lbs, do they require drilling and fab work?

    oh they exist lol
    300lbs? Probably not one out of a box
    They usually belong behind a minivan which is perfect if you happen to have a truck with a minivan motor

    I never liked hitch mounted racks because of the single point of contact. If a hitch mounted rack was in my future it would have more than one contact point to the hitch. Certainly possible as a custom build.

    The one I have can supposedly carry 550 lbs and the spec’d tongue weight on the 4r is 500 lbs.

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DFTGFSB

    Whatever setup you choose, you’ll want airbags on the back of the 4R. 350ish lbs hanging off the back here and no squat with the bags.

    For you guys that needed to extend your filler next on your 3rd gen Tacomas what did you guys do? I can't find really much info on this subject. I'm getting tired of stuffing the gas nozzle into my wheel well.

    I’d imagine similar to 2nd gen and most people just cut and extend it with some fuel hose.

    I see people with 2nd gens recommending a 4runner filler tube as an extension but have 6" fenders so I'm not positive if it's long enough. Worse comes to worse I'll just get a hole saw and put my filler neck into my bed :rofl:

    Yes
    It's pretty simple just extend the hoses. If you don't have a supplier local to you just measure all of the hose internal diameters of the OE hoses and hop on Summit Racing and order up everything you need. Just make sure that you use all fuel grade hoses.
