    Did you go on the various sites and look for your photo? Always fun to do after a DG run... if you note the rough time you pass the guys it's easier to find yourself later...

    Did a really complicated mod today. Took a while to get 'just' right. :)

    I had to run a few wraps of gorilla tape around it to keep it from rattling like hell in the mount. I've been thinking about getting one ever since I had my FJ just to make getting to things up on the roof a little easier (as well as keeping me from having to drag a step stool out to every time I wash the 4R. $58 on Amazon. TGL Hitch. Heavy as hell, solid steel. My only somewhat negative observances are the aforementioned looseness in the hitch, as well as the oversize pin holes. At least there are two of those, so you can decide how far out you want the step to stick.

    Looking forward to seeing this setup and hearing a review. I have been looking into it, but have not pulled the trigger yet. Hope it works out great.

    The UCAs and my bump stop extensions for the rear have arrived. I don't think I'll have all the Dobinson's parts until the end of the month, but I'm really excited to get everything put together. I'll definitely share the install experience and my thoughts on performance.

    I follow all these AUS offroad groups on Instagram and FB, they ALL run Dobinson's.. That's gotta be saying something.

    About $10 cheaper and this one has the cross hatching on the steps, but yeah, I dunno which one came out first, but someone copied someone, lol.

    I wish, I just have the TRD Pro suspension so I went with a 265/70 on mine. It’s about half an inch taller but I attribute that to the much deeper lug design.

    Interesting, to did a fair bit of research and it seemed they wouldn’t fit without extreme trimming and still rubbing.

    Let’s see, next excuse for 265’s...... ummm didn’t want the speedo to be off? :notsure: Haha

    I don't think you'd be able to do much more than street driving tho...

    Probably not without bump stops. That was at 325 miles, at 1400 miles I went with a 3" lift and bumperd up to a 295 anyway.

    Just an FYI, I have ZERO rubbing with just the front bumper liner mod. As a daily, it did just file. Offroad, highly unlikely lol

    Only time they rubbed was at full lock in reverse. Front bumper liner mod, slight bumper trim, no more rubbing. After the 3" lift, I rubbed the exact same spot, lift did nothing to change that.

    Never wheeled it like that. It rubbed the lower inner edge of the front bumper skin at full lock in reverse. Otherwise, no rubbing on the street. If you only street drive your 4R you could do this with the same fender liner mod that you need even when lifted. Lift doesn't change the need for a fender liner mod.
