    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.

    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
