    I've seen a few 4runner rigs on instagram with that setup. I love that look. Ecotechne is based in Venezuela, checked them out when I was looking for a roof rack. Love how their rack fits nice and snug to the body.

    So I bit the bullet...
    Bilstein Coilovers with the heavier spring set,
    Rear Shocks and an Icon RXT leaf pack.
    Some 2 deg shims just in case.

    Should lift the truck only 1.5" once the front winch is on, going to take a leaf out of the RXT pack, Triyng to find something good to put between the leafs to ensure they never squeek, old trick in the day was bike inner tubes all cut up,
    but at the cost of these parts I want to look for something fancier...

    Awesome!! Ill have to check your truck out some time.
    Did you get the little center pin collar for the leaf pack and slotted shims so all you have to do is loosen the ubolts and slide em in?

    I don't have shims, and didn't do the centre pin collar. If needed, a trip to home depot, and a hacksaw (or preferably power tools) will get you some DIY shims

    No. Original owner was. I keep that cover on there because it covers the plate completely. I'm probably the only guy in history to be charged for having tinted plate covers. Cop said they are illegal cause they cant read the sticker. I said " you should probably get your fucking eyes checked and find someone else to hassle" . That's when he stopped being nice. My wife said I deserved the ticket.

    $50 work? I’ll send you some pictures. I’m up for offers.
    You’re in sarnia or London? @Thyces may be able to help out as he is getting some exhaust stuff coming down perhaps.
