    Anyone have a factory 2004 Collision manual? I'm like to know what the correct measurements are for the rear emblems placement. The spec sheet I was given is barely legible and copy of a reprint that was copied six more times on a 1980's ditto machine

    Yup it just sucks that the copy I was given was so poor. I might hit the dealer up but I doubt they will print anything off

    I'll just get some friends to push it home while I steer.

    There's two bridges on my route, that'll be a fun time. Haha.

    No spacers. I am considering 1 inch spacers it rubs a little on the frame. I heard they are bad for the bearings and some people say they have had no problems with them.? It’s probably a a good debate.

    Hey,
    Is there a rear axle removal walkthrough somewhere on here that someone can point me in the right direction, thank you!

    They also push the tire closer to the firewall while turning.

    FWIW, I'm running Ray 10s with 295/75/16s and no spacers. I put up with a slight bit of frame for better clearance everywhere else.



    I'm getting tired of seeing these wheels on every other turd gen. Anyone want a set of 5 pre rock rashed? :rofl:

    Just installed some supernova v3 leds in the truck, it’s a night and day difference and had to take some pics. And missing having the Mickey Ts on. Any suggestions on nice 33” tires to put on them in the future. I wasn’t loving the TRXUS tires.

    I will! I have a limited budget anyways and it’s clean enough that it’s nice the way it is. And after the 3rd gen 4runner I had just had it’s even more amazing that it’s so nice
