4" lift and 35's?

3 inch coilovers and 33s... Had to do a cab mount chop and weld on some plates just to fit these.

To fit 35s on here, a high clearance bumper cut and complete regearing is needed. Otherwise it would be unbearable to drive.

I did have the truck tuned as well which increased power and shifting. But regearing is $$$. 2 grand just in parts. 3+ if I had a shop do both diffs..

You've gone about as far as possible then, nice!
I got a hankering to lock the rear of the DJ, being 4x2. I like the idea of an Ox locker.

Nice WW! Pretty much exactly what I did to mine but I went with 255/85R-16s to avoid the cab mount chop.

What coilovers did you use? I've gotten cab mount chops on several Tacomas and my last 4runner... It's not always needed, but I like knowing I won't be rubbing in the back even if I change tire size.

I was going to go skinnies (255), but originally planned on running fuel beast wheels, and they're 9"... 9 inch wheel on skinnies, especially offroad, could end badly... So I ordered 285s...

Then found an awesome deal on these wheels that are 17x8 -5mm.. skinnies would've been fine with these probably. Oh well.

I can't remember the exact kit I got off the top of my head, just that it had bilstein 5100 shocks. I was gonna get new wheels but I ended up just keeping the original off road wheels since they were already plastidipped black lol.

Got the Rekluse slave cylinder on the Husky and got it cleaned up for summertime today.

Looks like tons of fun in there!

I start the motorcycle safety Foundation course tomorrow evening. Then finish it on Sunday. I haven't even hit 100 miles on my new bike yet.... Partly because I live 2 miles down a dirt road that is currently being prepped for getting paved and the street tires on this bike doesn't "love" the soft sand LOL...

But also partly because I've never even ridden before buying it... And want a little guidance... That and my wife doesn't love the idea of me riding without taking the course first.



On another note... I passed my auto transmission final exam today with a 98.2 grade... Highest in the class... Class average was a 69.5! Pretty excited about that.

Tomorrow we start the final course of this 2 year program... Performance! The college just installed a new 4 wheel dyno machine too. Looking forward to this.

We have plenty of toys for sure lol.

The MSF course is really good. I've been riding since I was 3 and I learned (and unlearned) a lot during the class.

Congrats on the great grade!

I am loving the electric smoker I was given . Tuesday evening I did a corned beef brisket . Today I took the day off to deal with some stuff around the house. So I did another chicken and baked potatoes potatoes using Alder wood. Once that was done I made myself some bold smoked bologna spicy brown mustard to hold the spices lots of garlic and onion powder and coarse ground pepper . I smoked it with mesquite I am looking forward to frying some of it with eggs for breakfast

I got a 100 on the MSF written test today and didn't crash while riding the course... Yet LOL... Tomorrow we ride some more and then take the actual driving test. Fingers crossed.

Driving a little Honda Grom for the course... I like my MT-03 much better LOL... I stalled the grom out like 3 times... Feels like I have to rev up way more from a dead stop just to get it rolling.
