    Dobinsons 2.5" lift. Cooper AT3 XLT 295/70R17.
    It's been like this since they were new. I don't remember choosing the valving type, so I'm assuming standard. I only have a tote in the back, maybe 40lbs.

    New member; over the weekend got my bilstein 5100 installed. Rear cornfed spacers. 275 Falken Wildpeaks on 17x9 fuel vectors. Turned out great!

    That’s really odd. Mine have been rock solid, and have really good feel and control, and I’m super sensitive and critical about suspension with crappy damping.

    Have you talked to crikeymike about them?

    edit: just looked up the 705s. It looks like those might be for no lift, and the springs you have are 2.5in lift? The 701s seem to be geared for lifted applications.

    I’m not sure where I got comfort/standard valving. Maybe thats how they referred to them before? Or I got them mixed up with the other one. I have to check which ones I have, because I dont remember anymore. I have 1.5in of lift. i’ll see if I can find my paperwork

    Looks very nice, what height did you put the fronts at, and what size spacer did you do on the rear?

    I bought my setup from Dobinsons Direct. Looks like the IMS59-50705 is comfort valved. Supposed to be for 0"-3" lifts. It doesn't specify for the IMS59-50701, so I'm assuming it's standard valved.

    Had to get a new battery today. Cold weather zapped it. Original made it nearly 5 years and 95k miles. Can’t complain.

    Since changing all my tires, I had to figure out a way to carry my spare without changing to a swing away. I ended up putting the spare in the same stock location. Pic shows the wheel the other way to show what the spare looks like. I flipped the other way so I don't mess up the wheel.

    I just found my invoice and I have the IMS 50701 rear shock with C59-505R springs.

    Are your springs standard weight?

    My neighbor got his CAT stolen. I installed CAT guard from RCI to protect mine. It will take a lot of effort to steal mine. They would simply pass on it since it will not be a quick cut and go.

    To install RCI cat shields you have to drill holes right? Wish I could install without having to remove the skid and drill holes. With RCIs poor fitment I hate to remove them.

    Is that aluminum? Is that shield reinforced from bending it back towards the outside? I could see quickly defeating it if you could just slide small pry bar into the vent slits, and just lever it back in one quick motion.

    It’s amazing to watch a thief work. A little bit of smarts and motivation, and things are gone faster than a non-thief could ever imagine.

    I just loosen the 2 rear bolts from the front skid and removed the the 2 bolts on the transmission plate. It was not hard to remove. I did not have to remove the front skid or the transfer case plate. You do have to drill holes to install the the CAT guards. It took me 30 min to install and well worth the peace of mind.

    Yes, it could be possible if they can get pass the frame that is blocking it from brending all the way down enough to get the CAT out. The aluminum is thick and will take some muscles to bend. It is there to deter them from getting to it. It is not completely protected. They can just remove the 4 bolts and remove the plate. Also, my insurance covers any theft on my vehicle. So either way I am covered.

    Most insurance companies cover this loss / theft also....They'll eat your deductible though.

    I just figure if dont install a guard, it might be fun as hell to drive it for a while with no muffler & straight piped.... Just saying.

    Dobinsons 2.5" lift. Cooper AT3 XLT 295/70R17.
    According the website the C59-325 is supposed to give 2.5" of lift for the 4Runner with no added weight in the rear.

    Did an oil change; new Napa Gold air filter; new aluminum oil cap, added the Fumoto valve , grease u unjoints.
    The last change was done at the dealer. I had to use a breaker bar on the two 12 mm bolts at the rear of the front skid plate. Crazy tight. Thank goodness they weren’t stripped.

    I was reading about Durostops. Had not seen these. TO me, this makes more progressive sense.

    Where did you get the bump stops and custom mounts? Did you replace the front also?
    Thanks is advance.

    I made up the brackets. First I compressed the bump stops in a vise, Took a measurent. Set them so I have 5" of up travel. I put the bump stops about 3" away from the axle. Honestly its a decent setup. When it now "bottoms out" its smooth and not jarring.

    In the front i have wheelers superbumps. If you haven't watched the YouTube video on them do so. They cushion the front end. I love them I had these for a year now.

    Even if your 100% stock. If you want to smooth out your ride id look into progressive style bumps.

    Interior LED replacement bulbs from Caliraised with 15% discount (~$35). Replaced Map, vanity, dome, door, cargo, puddle lights. So bright! Still got bulbs for glove box and license plates. Glove box looks like it would be a pain to change and not sure I want to make my license plate clearer to read lol.PXL_20221118_000658786.jpg PXL_20221118_000545090.jpg

    Swapped out an HID retrofit for the OEM LEDs. HIDs were better output, but I’m happy with how it turned out. Did the 9011 mod while I was at it, those things are amazing. I was able to find some of the Toshiba HIR bulbs. Took about 2 hours start to finish and 20 minutes of that was modifying one of the 9011 bulbs because I cut the tab wrong.

    I’ll be putting up the HIDs and all the parts for sale soon.

    If you break multiple plastic rivets while doing any work, here are the part numbers: 90467-07217 (smaller ones for the plastic cover above the radiator); 52161-02020 (bumper). Toyota wants $3 and $6 respectively for those rivets, each. You can find a big bag on Amazon for about $10. I ended buying a slightly different part number for the plastic cover, 07201, so hopefully they work.
