    Just did today didn't need tires & if I did I could've gone W/less expensive General Grabbers(Just didn't like tread pattern, NOT bashing them at all either, they are a very good tire) or I really could've saved by just getting same size regular all weather tires like the ones that came on it :rofl::rofl::rofl:

    Came back just to say- We've all done the exact same thing. Trust me, I'm looking at a garage full of trial-and-error, and have a pair of sliders and a bumper that I may not even paint and install... not to mention my gigantic fridge/freezer and Battle Born lol.
    Anyway, don't beat yourself up, and keep us updated with whatever you're doing... starting a "build thread" for yourself is the best thing to do, that way you can ask any questions you like and every answer will be in one place, in order for reference. It's also how you can chronicle your sweet ass 4R's transformation, something many of us never do.
    Have fun!

    Looks great! And worst case scenario is you decide to do some more mods later, after you get a better sense of how these mods work and what you like / don't like. It'll be fun!

    We went with a spacer lift/leveling kit (RevTek), but we put DuroBumps bumpstops on also, we hardly use our Runner to extreme measures but once upon a time it will happen where you put yourself in a "bottom out" position, and will it last once or 30 times before it wrecks? I bought them from a person who wasn't wanting them, he's happy, and I guess I'm happy...... at least till I get our Elka suspension!
