    Hi guys. I've been following the forum for a while, thought I should sign up. My 2000 4Runner 4WD has a 3" Rough Country suspension lift, LT285 75 16 TOYO OPEN COUNTRY MUD tires and I think the rear end is too high. Too much body rake. Any suggestions? Thanks

    You want some rake. Reverse rake looks stupid, be careful whatever you do.

    you could get a top plate spacer to raise the front a little, or shorter lift springs for the rear

    Thanks guys, guess I'll live with it for now. Especially after seeing 4-Ripcord's 4Runner. Did my first oil change after purchasing, man that oil filter is a pain!. I just ordered a "Denso" radiator to replace the 16 year old oem one. Not leaking, just for peace of mind. Also purchased the 1" front diff drop from Sonoran Steel.
