    Had family in town yesterday. The truck is still here. My orders got pushed back to early next year so I will be around for a while longer. I may be taking the new 4runner up to peacock flats once I get the sliders and suspension on.

    What did you end up breaking?

    Safety is up at th end of the month. Technically I need recon because the current 1.75" lift. OME 884s should be here next week, so would be an even more obvious lift at 2.25"

    Went out to get safety this morning. Was going to chance Goodyear even though they would have more of the "eye" for any sort of lift. Wait was over an hour, so went to a service/gas station. The lady did look at the front shocks, but luckily wrote me up anyway. Thinking I definitely wouldn't have passed if I had a spacer lift in there and no recon. Maybe since the 5100s are giving the lift, it was a little less obvious.

    At least I bought some time to get close to a 3" lift, decide what to do with the rear, and get recon scheduled. Rather pay the man $15 and get recon, then hope it will pass every year.

    Its not hard to get recon, just a pain in the ass to go downtown. If your suspension deflects and your tires are under the car, you're pretty much done.

    THe bro-cholos with the balloon tires can't pass, but they just run down there on factory tires to get the sticker.

    There are no cops in hawaii, so once you have the sticker, you're good with the local garage inspection right? Long as the paper matches what's on there.

    Even then, Every time, I MEAN EVERY time I go to buy a car or moto, it's on the road and 3-10 years out of date on the registration. There are no cops, don't worry about it. Don't speed and you'll be fine. Even then, they only set up speed traps at certain areas.
