    A fellow TW member was nice enough to fab me a mounting bracket on the bumper because there was no way we were getting it on the winch housing

    Can we see the back of it? Itll fit on the winch but you have to cut the crap out of you grill.

    Found these in my area. Are they that much more comfortable than normal seats? D6E10805-C6C4-4133-AE95-0F07F70EB509.jpg

    And I didnt really want to do that :rolleyes: still a little worried about what might happen if I smack a deer with that unit specifically. I Might end up bending it back out of line with the bumper to keep it out of harms way.
    I'll post pictures in a little bit

    Shouldn’t they just bolt in? I have normal seats (not bench). I’m also only 5’4” so not concerned about them being too high

    Moved my bike fork mounts from the unistrut along the back wall of the toolbox to the top of the box. Yes, I went to a lot of trouble trying to avoid that originally, but they really aren't in the way there, as it turns out. It makes the bikes fit better, better protected, too. I will need to run a piece of 1X1x1/8 angle iron on the bottom to stiffen the mounts up, though- WAY too flexy as it is, due to the aluminum. Most of my efforts have gone to rehabbing my old bikes and building out a Fuji hardtail frame and a KHS FS frame I recently came across. Now it's time to have a way to transport those bikes to the trails.
    Truck has been running like a top. I have even found my MPG is increasing.

    No they won't just bolt in. Totally different era of cab and seat.

    My 88 buckets were more comfortable I thought than my 1st gen ones though

    The 88 bucket seats aren’t the pictured ones. The ones are “99 SR5” seats2C918D44-0595-4600-827D-4EA1D380B380.jpg

    3rd gen 4runner seats will have 3 of the 4 mounts line up. The front outside mount is at a different height and angle than the Taco seats. It's not hard to make it work with some shims.
    If they're in good shape, that's a good deal on 4runner seats. They are way more comfortable than the stock buckets.

    I thought they were 4Runner seats too from the title but when he posted the rest of the description it says they’re out of a 99 Tacoma.

    Yeah, sorry maybe this is more appropriate for the BS thread but I’m was confused why he had all these in the same post. He is selling a ton of seats and parts so likely goes to part outs or something. Just seeing what you guys thought

    Anyone have the part number to the Lager oil filter? Heading down to the dealership for a new fob though I would get a few while I’m there.

    These are definitely 4Runner seats, he may have pulled them out of a taco but that’s not where they originally came from. And if he did get them out of a taco, they’re probably already modified to fit.
