    No time today. My sister's Envoy blew a power steering hose. Major pain getting it out ( relay box, radiator, overflow tank, battery,... had to be removed) and had to go pull one from salvage yard. Fortunately I found one with the engine removed but lines still in place. No problem.

    I have a lot of relatives who can't afford auto repairs,... except at my house. Actually, I am just glad to have a nice garage and the ability to help them.

    I think I am going to have to start welding some hooks on specific pull points if I am going to save that inner fender.

    Whatever it takes for those overlander points :rofl:, are those the really Arb lights or? If I recall right that’s a no.

    Do you have a link?

    I actually did consider doing that! Went through a few links before I became a member and decided to put it on hold for now. I’m currently running the 4Runner Trail Edition Wheels on 33’s with 1.5 in. Spacers. Do you the tundra calipers would become a issue or interfere in any way or not necessarily?

    I believe I got “BrakeBest Ceramic”. Pads were packaged in a yellow box. I always end up getting the cheapest products at O’Reilys but this time decided to treat myself and get the “middle tier” or “second highest in cost” product haha

    You need at least a 16” wheel to run Tundra calipers without issue. Some 16” won’t work, but most will.

    I’m running 3rd Gen TRD OR 16” wheels and there’s no clearance issues.

    i cant find the exact link but i believe these are the same. there are a few different versions available.

    they are extremely impressive for the price and i love the look of 9 inchers.

    I was lookin at the smaller ones, 9” is a bit much for now.



    And yes, that’s probably what she said.

    Too many trucks and mods to list.. check builds
    Probably will have to weld into some point.. that front end was pretty folded

    I know the working on everyone else’s stuff. I make decent money on the side. But family is usually free lol. Takes up a lot of time when a big chunk of your family drives clunkers

    They are 17s, so you won't have any problems. In fact, you could go all in and skip the 13WG/13WL calipers and get the 13WH units. 338mm rotor versus 319. Mo' stopping power.

    I'm considering it.

    I'm running Akebono ceramics & I'm happy with them. I used to always run Hawk ceramics in the past but won't be anymore, they're too expensive. I normally care about quality over price but the Akebonos are much cheaper & are performing well for me. My last set of Hawk pads made weird grinding noises after they got loaded up.

    Here's a little secret instead of running ACT436 that's listed for our trucks, I'm running ACT799 which is listed for pre-2001. Same pads, just the wear indicators are different which I don't care about. $32 vs $51.

    They're pretty cheap from the junkyard and they don't regularly fail. Usually 75-150 for junkyard one. But you can get a rebuilt one from Marlin Crawler for a pretty penny too
