    I wasn't expecting nearly as much sag as I ended up getting. It's amazing how much that extra weight really does make a difference.

    Start planning now, you're going to want to.

    What do you have now? I'm betting you'll want to switch. 861s have gotten pretty popular with the heavy rear ends on 3rd gens. They still flex well though, you saw that at Uhwarrie haha

    Yeah I like my truck raked a good bit and with my old LC 7.5 wraps I was right at the point of not enough rake without the bumper. With the bumper I could tell I needed taller springs immediately.

    I probably lost a good 1/2" or so in the rear with the bumper weight. It feels great with the weight back there now, a lot less body roll, but I think once I'm fully loaded with camping gear it will be too much. I'll have to go up to the 3" coils for sure.

    Wondering what your guys thoughts are for a price on my 99. Looking to sell as I’ve driven it 10 times in the last year and don’t want to dump anymore money into it. Have a friend interested (not a close friend, so not getting a major discount) but don’t know what to ask. Was thinking $2800 as is (not fixing the high idle or hatch). https://sfbay.craigslist.org/scz/cto/d/wtb-wtt-fortoyota-4runner/6349310186.html

    I'd look at what a stock 4runner with those miles are getting with a clean title, and then adjust from there for the mods, salvage, and issues.

    8 wraps. I like them a lot, just not sure how they'll do with the weight. I've had the rear loaded with alot of weight before and no real sagging so I'm going to see how it settles. Don't want a lot of height back there

    How many days did your bumper spend in the mail before delivery?

    I think, even with a salvage title, $2800 is a pretty good deal. I'd ask $3k just because. I think you could sell it on craigslist for $3k pretty easily.

    2-3 days probably. It didn't take any longer than a normal package. Mine came with FedEx, be sure to have someone around to help him get it out of the truck. It's heavy.

    Yeah been looking and any non-salvage gets around 6k+ around here in similar shape/miles, but without the lift. Figure half is appropriate.

    That's what I was thinking. Drove it to work today and drives good, just need the tires balanced and my temp gauge was bouncing all over the place. I think my RPM reading low and bouncing around is tied to the temp gauge, so should rule out a sensor of some sort and probably be wiring or the cluster going bad.

    I'd say start at 3.5ish if they're going for 6k stock, then you can settle for 2.8-3

    I'll be spending part of my Christmas bonus upgrading for sure. Probably be hanging out on the bump stops a lot next week while I'm fully loaded.

    I actually really like how well grounded I am now with all the weight. I was definitely higher, but definitely loose. Front end feels really fucking stiff now though. Not sure if that's because I've equalized the weight or not. Might take some preload off the front and see if I can soften it up for DV next week.

    I was going to offer them up to the highest bidder, but they're not worth quite as much now that Metal Tech decided to bring them back into stock. hahaha. Probably let them go for 200ish.
