    2600 is a good price. I cant seem to find it online.

    I been eyeing this combo package... But It's $7000 delivered with an 11K lift... $6000 with a 9K lift.

    [​IMG]




    But the wife is like "you'll only use it a couple times a year... We both drive 2019 toyotas" she says "we'll drink and shoot pool every weekend, that's much more useful and you'll save money"

    I'm like "yea but a nice shop would be badass woman" :D

    I'm only 35 years old. But I'm a Disabled veteran and don't work... So I'm currently in college for automotive technology and performance. Just as a hobby. So i wanted a shop... Her argument makes sense... But i still like the idea of having a decked out garage.

    Wow!! That’s a business right there....I got room...and you should use braces, after lifting, on the front and rear of the vehicle? My neighbor does this I noticed...

    The more I learn about the stock OffRoad rims the more I like them. They have a thicker outer rim, they Have a nice safe pocket for the valve stem, you can put 275/70/17s on without much modification because of their offset, because they are wide you can even put 285s on them. I have had some regrets about giving them up for the grey SEMA rims, and not using the money I spent on rims elsewhere. If you can deal with the look they are actually a good rim, if you can’t then I would suggest looking through the build thread for what looks good to you. Just MHO

    A two post lift doesn't take up that much room. I think you should have enough room for both options. I would definitely throw a lift in there. I have wanted one for years.

    If you want to... You can peel that raised AVS sticker off. Mine has AVS molded into the plastic underneath the sticker (My sticker is long gone).

    I used a little isopropyl alcohol to remove the remaining sticky. But there wasn't much left at all.

    Very nice! How does it ride?

    Did you get stiffer coils in the back or just taller coils?

    Ray, there’s a guy on the FB group in the Orlando area that is selling his predator steps off of his pro. His name is Jesse Waller.

    I wired a set of 36" Opt 7 LED strips into the dome light circuit and mounted them to brackets I made on the sides of the frame rails facing down. They light up the whole under side of the truck on both sides when doors are unlocked or opened. No need for a switch, I would never have a need to have them on for any reason besides entry lights.

    Mods are addictive on the runner. I'm like a kid on Christmas and can't wait! I'll get the switch, video on line says install is 6 minutes. Probably take me an hour lol
