    I have to say, I love the look. It would not be a big deal for Toyota to offer 35s on 4 Runners, the same as Ford is doing on the Bronco. It’s so close to working at 100%.

    Pinstripes, lots of em.
    Feel like I'm constantly riding the brakes, off-road with 33 inch 285's. A regear may be in my near future.

    Side note:
    Saturday evening after off-roading with a bunch of Wranglers, I went back to help recover a Land Rover that was stuck on one of the trails - with hydrolocked engine. He was supposed to join our group for the trail ride but didn't show up till later and went on his own.

    I got there just as another vehicle (3rd gen Pathfinder) had pulled him up to the main road. I gave the Rover driver, his wife, dog, and 2 kids a ride to the next town north where they had parked their backup mini-van.

    Talking to the Rover driver, he slipped off a muddy rut and his intake sucked up a bunch of water. He pulled the plugs, turned it over, then reconnected the plugs and got it started. Shortly thereafter he heard a bang and everything locked up. Most likely threw a rod. Looking closer at his air box, he noted a large open hole in the bottom of it where there should've been a one way plug.

    Where am I going with this? I think I need to get a snorkel. I know snorkels are more effective on diesel engines. However, water crossings and mud holes are a fact of life here in the Ozarks.

    What's the stock gear at? Is it 4.56? I'm thinking of getting 285s down the road after I wear out my Nitto Grapplers.

    Also if all you're planning on doing is 285's you're perfect fine with stock gears
    Don't waist your money on rergearing for that
    BUT if you got it to spend well...thats ALL you homie
    You do you
