    Want some
    I think I can get my 4Runner to a 'done' position. I don't seriously wheel so 35s and gears/lockers won't be necessary. Front and rear armor, decent inside storage, roof rack, supercharger, and I'll be done.

    Supercharger belt cut a ridge into the idler pulley. Enough to catch a fingernail. Belt may have been too tight, not loose enough.

    Has anyone gotten really creative with switch placement?

    Thinking about making one of these with fiberglass

    Haha so about 8K later you'll start your new list...

    I'm having a hard time deciding what I want to do with my 4runner. At this point I'm $900 into it and just can't justify a $800 bumper on a salvage title truck I paid $800 for. Going to be a slow and cheap build.

    Haha I'm more than halfway through the list at least.

    I would be able to justify a bumper if I planned on keeping it. Black Friday deals are here so it's pretty easy to find a good price. If you plan on keeping it, then who gives a damn whether or not it's salvaged.

    Make two :D

    I really like what Blcktpgsr did here but I would never need that many switches (I hope) and my fiberglass ability is nowhere near that

    Cheap. Probably around $100 shipped. They could use some paint, but they aren't awful.

    What are you going down to? Inches wide?

    Curious how it fits. I need to get a pod mount for my boost gauge.

    Hopefully 1.5" overall. But who even knows know that my fenders are cut and everything. I want to go as low as possible

    I will be curious to see how you end up. I wanted a low lift ~2inchs and I did 906 in the rear. Great unloaded, awful with weight. Curious to

    My head unit is double-din. If not, I'd definitely be getting that. I even considered getting the hilux one that's got a triple-din opening but I have no connections for sourcing and I don't really want to spend that much
