    6" lift, Rear Locker, Tires and Wheels So Far!
    I am the proud owner of a 2004 4Runner. I am looking to carry my spare tire on a rear Bumper/Rack. I have been searching and only found 3. One made by CBI, One made by Mobtown and a couple made by Wilco. Is there any others I have missed? I would have thought there would be a larger selection.

    My ride is running a 6" Custom Fabbed lift with 35" tires.

    those are nice, but from what Ive read and spoke with people, those rattle and move. Thats why I went with a true custom weld on. Some really like them. I wish ya the best, which ever route you go

    Any chance of a sneak peek of a concept? Price point? I'm not in a BIG hurry but I would like to get something reasonably soon. PM me if you'd like.
    In regards to the Wilco rattling, I was thinking about welding it to the receiver hitch for extra strength and no wobble. If I need to remove it, I'd just take out the 6 bolts on the hitch and drop the whole thing.

    The Wilco does not rattle or shake at all. I've had mine on for about a year and never had a rattle. I fabbed up a dual Jerry can holder for it too. (This is actually v.1, I beefed it up a bit)

    The lift is a custom one-off by FabTech. They told me that, at the time I had it done, it was the only one they did or even heard of. Worked out great but a bit spendy$$! It was installed by CATUNED OFF-ROAD in Sacramento CA.

    6" lift on 35's. SPC Control Arms. Custom Skid Plates. Custom Bolt-on Rock Sliders. 6" lift includes a 2" body lift.
    I was able to get 35's on my 2006 4runner with SPC Upper Control Arms and about 4 inches of coil-over lift + a 2" body Lift. I haven't chopped the body mount yet so it rubs a little. I Can even fit some massive 40's but it won't turn :). I want to eventually get fully functioning 37"s under there but I need to complete my Body mount relocation and floor-pan mod in order for that to work.

    I have a Wilco too, and it works great. That being said I would rather have a bumper as it does decrease you departure angle. I have hit it a few times wheeling.

    There's a thread on another website stating the 6" fabtech kits for the FJ's work for the front end of the 4th gen 4runners. The rear links from the kit need re worked to fit. Might be worth looking into of your looking for a taller lift.
