    I’m making a build thread to keep track of modifications I make to my 4Runner. My plan is to keep things simple.

    Here is my starting point. I immediately had the front windows tinted (20%) to match the factory tint.

    My next small change made to my 4Runner was the badges. Not a big fan of the chrome so picked up the overlays Toyota sells.

    I have SCS Ray 10s (17x8.5) waiting to be installed, and also have a Dobinsons lift kit currently in shipping.

    Once the lift goes on the wheels will be wrapped in Nitto Ridge Grapplers 285/70/17.

    Just received my lift in the mail. Excited to get everything installed. I went with their 302 coils for the front and 505 in the rear (+10mm shim on both sides). Will report back on overall height gained. Looking for about 2.5 in the front and 2 in the rear.

    Just want to say thanks to everyone so far! I’m honestly not too sure how I feel about the teal coils, but maybe once they are on I’ll be more open to it. (Were the first to ship from Dobinsons so chose them)

    Planning on the lift going on this weekend. I attached a picture of my last Toyota that was replaced by the 4Runner.

    I think they will look cool with the MGM color of your 4, but you could always paint them before they go on. I do know what you are saying though. I almost wish I would have painted my JBA upper control arms black, it's a little too much bling for me right now with the red

    Curious about their UCA's vs the typical other brands.
    Are you doing the install? Take some pics.

    I like the teal coils when everything else is black.

    If it was teal coils on a yellow shock with a red UCA, then yeah.......way too much going on.

    I’ve seen that, they look good but it’s all preference I guess! We will see how they look installed first and go from there.

    Yes I’m planning on doing the install. I liked these because they seem to be stout and they are ball joint vs uniball.
    Hope you’re right! We will find out. Will post pictures when I get it done.

    Didn’t get the lift on yet. But I did order AVS low profile window deflectors along with RSG sliders. (Flat top, no kick with filler plates). Spent a long time going back and forth on if I wanted angles sliders, and if I wanted kick out or not.

    I think the 4runner me be the easiest lift I've ever installed. Looking forward to seeing the end result. Yours is the same color as my 19 ORP.

    installed AVS window guards. Now working on the lift. One man show so I’m going slow (also have knee injury slowing me down)

    I actually like them. Can’t see much of them anyway, but they go well with the color of the truck.

    Thank you! It rides great. Rides very similar to stock but a little more stiff and doesn’t nose dive under breaking anymore. (Need an alignment though)

    Yeah I’m not a big fan of the wheels for the off road. I’ve seen a couple of people powder coat them black and they look much better. Were you able to sell yours?

    Here are some more photographs. Unfortunately I forgot to take measurements at stock height, but once things settle I’ll be measuring it to get anyone curious exact numbers for lift height.

    Curious about your alignment numbers with the Dobinson UCA's once you get it done. More specifically, I'm wondering how much caster you can get out of them. Please keep us posted.
