    That's exactly what I have been looking at to keep my hi-lift and some other recovery gear in. I'm glad to hear that it holds up!

    Thank you for posting this!

    20% off Husky and Weathertech liners + free shipping at HomeDepot.com

    Seems like a good deal. You can also mix and match husky and weather-tech. Gonna pick up a set for the wife's mommy wagon.

    Depending on the color you want some prices vary. Some are higher than WT website before the 20% discount but the free shipping makes it pretty decent.

    Rago or CH4x4 I believe make a switch that would work. I cant find which one that AnytimeBackupCamera uses. That exact switch would also probably work, You would want to change the face obviously.

    I did this on my 350z. The swaybar stock will have some slack/takeup from the rubber bushings front to rear. using prothane there is no slack/takeup...

    You have to decide if that is what you want. another guy I knew who autox his Z just simply replaced the rubber bushings when they wore out

    So my lift went wrong (kidding) I only had time to do one end so picked rear, didn't want the Cali lean.
    What I did learn today with just rear Eibach and the boss shocks. 90+% of body roll around corners is gone:yes:
    Do Eibachs settle? I was hoping for 1" and got 1.75
    Fronts go in tomorrow

    What brand are those? That is horrible quality control. Were they packed poorly?
    That sucks.

    I think the rear will go down a hair after the front is lifted.

    I’m looking to wrap the top of my rig before I put on my new rack. I checked on one place and they have an xpel kit for the roof. About $1000. Is this normal?

    Our local installer wanted $800 for full front clip (full bumper, grill bar, hood & a pillars)
    I think $1k for roof is affordable.
    If you put a rack on; why do you want protection up there?
    The roof & tailgate are the only places we didn't wrap & our first plan is a Victory4x4 3/4 rack. @victoryrunner has some insanely impressive items.

    ABSOLUTELY wrap the top before getting a rack! Wisdom only comes from experience! haha! I had a Tule bag on top of our Prinsu and it shifted during one of our trips and did an excellent job of grinding dust into the paint on the top of the car. Also, our RTT bolts did a number on the top when we were removing it once, I don't think that the wrap would have stopped that damage but it would have helped a little at least. I am considering removing our Prinsu and getting it wrapped or Rhino lining the top this winter/fall. If you have the means etc, I really suggest wrapping it. That's my 2 cents.

    Morimoto from the retrofit source, they weren't packed poorly it looks like it was damaged prior to shipping as both the outer and inner cartons were fine. They are suppose to have minor imperfections because they are closeout/open box and they do each have a small scuff but i'll be putting yellow Lamin-X covers on them so you will never notice it. The customer service guy kept telling me that minor imperfections included broken brackets and hardware...WTF. After almost 30 minutes on hold I finally got to someone who would actually listen. End result I will have a new bracket for it by Saturday and they should be installed by Saturday night. I really don't know if I will deal with the retrofit source after this, I think I'm sticking with XenonDepot, although I know some have had the opposite experience.

    So I had a 2004 4R with a yakama rack with kayak saddles. I also had the OEM crossbars (came with the vehicle not an extra). So washing the top of the rig was difficult. In the end I guess it didn’t matter when I traded it in, but the dirt and green stuff would bug me every time I washed it.
    BTW. I’m putting on a SSO full length rack. It’s coming Monday!:yes: After about 12-weeks wait. :notsure:

    Also looking at tinting all the windows (except the windshield) and to get some thermal protection and darken the rear windows. About $450? 160$ for just the front windows.

    I received a new headlight assembly for my 4runner yesterday, and it was damaged as well two different places, so now I’m waiting for my UPS call tag to be delivered to me.... funny part is the box was in perfect shape no damage so it had to have happened when they dropped it in the box?

    for as pissed off as I was I will give them credit on shipping out 1-2 day at their expense a new bracket to me. It has gone a long way towards turning this into a good experience. If all goes well i'll still have them installed by Saturday evening :bananadance:

    Yep you were right, took before and after measurement of having the fronts done. Rear dropped an 1/8"
    My runner has something going on...Toytec is supposed to give 2.5" out of the box, I got 4". Now with the front perfectly level one strut has about an inch of thread showing on the adjuster, the other has 2"
    I went out of my comfort zone for these damn Eibachs being to high, went 2.5 front and have 1" rake left.. all in all I think it turned out good, higher than I wanted but now the gf is bitching she can't get in, there goes another 1400 for amp steps:smack:and I know me, 285s will be on the plate.

    Lol, she's not coordinated enough to use the step. I had factory steps similar to amps on my last truck, they pop down about 6 to 8" and swing out further

    Are you intending on putting any protection on the ceiling this time?
    I just thought I would take the rack of every couple of years & have it buffed & waxed.

    Is the consensus that with a roof rack that you should vynil wrap or somehow protect the top?
    I come from a full size pickup. No need for more storage space!
    Thanks to all.
