    You’re sure now, that it’s the wife’s ride....I’m just saying!! :rofl::rofl::rofl:. I totally understand what you’re saying...I once bought a BMW M3 for my wife. I added exhaust, tuner, methanol injector, supercharger among other things. Maintaining that it’s the wife’s all along. She only ever driven it twice in all the time that we had the car. But, the only way that I knew that I would be able to buy the car, was to convince her that we were getting the car for her:rofl::rofl::rofl:.

    So I haven't updated this at all. But here is some stuff I been getting done this weekend in preparation for Moab in October. Added some baja designs amber squadron pros. Finally decided on tires went with 285/70r17 Nitto Trail Grapplers. 4.88's from motive gear will be going in, in the next 2 weeks. Got some SDHQ abs guards coming and some cross bars from Victory 4x4 for the stock rack coming also. So it's coming along nicely for our trip. My wife is super stoked with how her truck is coming along!!!

    ADS is a great company they build quality stuff. All my vehicles are equipped with ADS. The ride is awesome on the 4runner very plush and controlled I dont run a front sway bar also.

    So 4.88's are in. And initial impression is that they are worth the effort. So far the drivability is way better. Feels like it is in the right gear now instead of searching for gears. This upgrade made me like this 4runner way more than I already did haha...:D

    Got the crossbars mounted from Victory 4x4 @victoryrunner. Gonna get couple more ordered later. They seem pretty versatile and perfect for my needs. They will get tested out next weekend in moab holding some of our recovery gear.

    Can I get some more info on the Victory crossbars? Those are just what I need right now before I can get enough for the entire Victory 3/4 roof rack.
