    I did a leveling kit. I put a 2.5 Daystar on my wife's 2010. It definitely brought up the front and now I have to do the back. She is running 32"s and I did some minor trimming inside. I getting her a BajaRack from the group buy next. I'll take some pics in the morning for you.

    Sorry it took so long. image.jpg
    As you can see it's not level. So I got rear lift spacers in the garage and no time. As for the cutting up front, it wasn't much.

    I took the lower valence off cause of a new bumper eventually

    Enough to freak out my wife. Lol. It wasn't too bad and it's not even noticeable if you don't know.

    I'm not sure how y'all feel about 4WheelParts but ProComp has a 4 piece steel spacer kit for like $175 I think.... It's been a while since I've looked. Personally I prefer the steel to polyurethane and you really can't beat ProComps warranty.

    I love 4WheelParts. That's where I got my lift at. I got the DayStar 2.5 leveling kit. I forget the amount. I just finished the rear tonight in about an hour. I'll post a pic tomorrow.

    I live in Fort Irwin. I've done a few different TW Runs and Superstition last year and I'm going to Super again this year. That's how I ran into Rebel. The Open Bunkers are awesome and I kinda like cruisin' through SoCal. I'm in the BajaRack Group Buy and I don't understand, KDSS.:notsure:

    The KDSS is a feature on the Toyota LandCruisers and 4Runner trail 4x4 system. The open bunkers are the camping up on top of the roof? yes, agreed they look sweet.

    I have the 2016 trail w/KDSS and I put the 3"-2" Bilstein kit with the 6112 in front and 5100's in the rear and love it. You will to. Good luck post pics.

    I did everything for $2750. That was shocks,coils,tires,wheel and mount the 22"light bar in behind the grill . The alignment along and the resetting the KDSS cost a lot.
