    If this is a 12K winch, I'll be interested to watch it go in. I installed a 12K China winch in mine, and it was *super* tight. Had to do some creative things with the grill to get the winch up and in. It went in, but took some head scratching.

    I'm trusting what they say will fit. Per them - they designed their BLITZ bumper to accept the ZEON 12 S.

    Actually I have been impressed by how respectful the younger guys and gals in here are. Rather refreshing when one considers this is the web. :cool:

    2/23/21 The build is AWP(;)). So, appointments are set(tint & ceramic coat) to have the windshield and two front windows done(all the same tint - more a UV blocker than tint). Window tint cancelled. < now that's a story:rolleyes:

    Edit: Decided to have the front clip, mirrors, door handle cups & lower back hatches painted surface wrapped in XPEL prior to it being ceramic coated. Trying to keep it clean and looking fresh for as long as possible ;)

    Ready for pickup from wrap & ceramic coat - 8am March 19 :D

    Window tint to be rescheduled(once a suitable shop is found).

    Thought it was time to have accurate weights and measurements before we start affixing anymore mods.

    Toyota's numbers: Curb weight 4,750 LBS / GVW 6,300 LBS

    Moon Landing numbers: with 1/2 tank fuel, sliders(guesstimated combined weight - 150 ponds), & OEM spare in place. (unoccupied)

    Scaled weight.
    Front - 2,580
    Rear - 2,240
    Total - 4,820 Curb weight


    Height from axle center to wheel arch.
    FRONT - 20 7/8” both sides
    REAR - 22 1/2” both sides

    #6 of ?

    On the way to the scale house this morning.

    Thanks for the heads up. I've just about used up all the realestate on the ultra swing. Once mounted I'd like to attach an ammo box, or similar, to carry the 3 heavy ass winch blocks I'll likely never need. lol

    And thank you for your kind comment. She's got a way to go.

    163 L Alubox('s) - Why?

    https://www.4runners.com/threads/roof-racks-and-load-ratings.18403/#post-224885

    Some of the thinking behind my decision to go with the AluBox. #1 they can stow just about anything I currently think I may need(whether the trip calls for 1 or both boxes). #2 They're light as hell(yes, they have a high surface area side winds may play hell with?) That brings me to reason #3. Should I find myself in such conditions(and it will happen). The box(s) empty weigh 20 pounds each, which means if I'm staying within Toyota's load limits - each box can carry an additional 35 pounds of stuff inside(or 90 pounds if using a single box). That means each box, at most, will weigh 55 pounds loaded when both are used - or up to 90 pounds if 1 is used. So, without a lot of effort the box(s) can be removed from the roof and stowed in the back of the 4Runner - in times of need.

    Friday we picked it up after having the XPEL wrap and ceramic coating done(above). That afternoon we installed the RIGd swing out and accessories(above). Also ordered a fifth grappler which was mounted on the new wheel(above) this AM and is now mounted on the swing out.

    So the backup camera needs to be relocated and a license plate light needs to be installed.

    As to the light - found this handy little guy and am going to use it to light the plate for now.......and, if it works well enough - it may stay? Only time and conditions will tell.

    Monday the BLITZ bumper and winch will be installed. It's nice to be making a little progress.;)

    Here ya go :hattip:

    Exploring the fuel carrying options that may be available(fabrication required) with the additional bicycle carrying mount RIGd adds to their swing out. Though my first choice is the missing spare tire cavity.

    Done! Warn ZEON installed without a hitch. The wiring extension harness I was told to get......was not needed(see winch post #3 above).
