    how you like it? I was thinking about a topper but a hard top doesn't make sense, I like the soft top because of the versatility of it

    I really miss mine for that exact reason. It's not as secure at a hard top but it keeps thing out of site and easy to remove and store. I just got too old to sleep in the bed of truck.

    Mine has been clunking but it may have been there before the lift. I have new lower control arms that I still need to put in. I only hear the clunk when I back into my parking space (wheel turned slightly). Not looking at it until it warms up again.

    I'm lifted with JBA arms and 5100s and that pop has been there before and after the lift. Not sure what it is but it's been there for couple years now and no one can tell me what it is.

    I’m sure this has been answered somewhere in here but here it goes …:crapstorm:

    My 5 speed shift boot clips in the console are nearly all broken I know I can’t be the only one. What has been the best fix for this? Buy a new console?

    Isnt it a known issue for second gens to have that clunking sound coming from the drive train? Something about a poorly leveled drive shaft? I thought this was my issue in the last year but it was a measly front u joint

    The rear u-joint on my truck was horribly rusted, couldn't tell from the outside. I changed everything to greaseable after that.

    2.5 inch lift. Bilstein 5100s all around, TSB springs + Deaver AAL, OME 884x coils, Freedom Off-road UCAs. 265/75r16 Falken Wildpeak AT3Ws on black powdercoated Baja Alloy Wheels. x2 Baja Designs Squadron Sport Led Pod lights. Tacomabeast/Spyder Headlights. Cruise mod. A.R.E. Topper. Hail damage mod.
    Yes, it's been doing it for probably a year and a half now. Ever since the new coils. Does it on really rough forest roads and stuff too. I'm sure it's nothing too serious. My trucks so quiet in the woods when I'm hunting, minus all the little pops and creaks as I'm driving in :D

    95182BAB-3452-4EBA-A6D3-EB5F5F9C84B5.jpg Noticed a few weeks ago my coolant reservoir was almost empty, so I decided to top it off till my next service with my mechanic which was today. Opened the hood yesterday and noticed the reservoir was empty again……..stupid plastic water bypass pipe decided to shit the bed and leak all my coolant out. Thankfully I drive the truck 3 miles between 2 jobs everyday so it’s not like I was going to catastrophically destroy the engine anytime soon. Took the truck to my mechanic today and now my $50 service turned into a $900 visit (had them look at some other things besides the coolant leak so I’m not surprised at the price). Anyways, hope everyone has a happy holidays coming up!

    Exactly what my mechanic is putting in. Once he realized I was leaking a lot of coolant and looked at the mileage on my truck, he knew right away it was that pipe. I guess it’s a common thing, especially in the 4 cylinder trucks with high miles.

    I love it, don't have any complaints. It's great for camping, and I can fold it down and have access to the entire bed in under five minutes. Highly recommend.

    Thanks - ome 2884 / stock leaf with some deaver aals.
    Probably settled at around 1.5-2 inch lift because the drawers are like 150lbs

    4runner trail 17" 265/70/17 no spacers

    thinking about doing 255/80/17 next?

    Beautiful truck! I definitely love the 4runner wheels. That lift looks great. Glad to see the results I was looking for with the OME 884's.

    Any other suspension upgrades? Upper control arms?

    I have a 2012 and it already has a metal pipe. Do you know what year Toyota changed over to the metal pipe? Maybe for the 2.5 gen body style, 2012+?
