    Am I crazy to want a mild long travel setup on a 80% road DD 4Runner?

    As far as I know you would have shock rebuilds every 50k or so, possibly pivots to grease on linkages? Maybe added U joint inspections of your?

    Am I crazy to want a mild long travel setup on a 80% road DD 4Runner?

    Good info. I can’t do UNIBalls because of the winter weather and road salt. And shock rebuilds are an inconvenience too. For that reason I’ve also considered Bilstein 5100s and be done.

    Am I crazy to want a mild long travel setup on a 80% road DD 4Runner?

    Your not the first person to mention Toytec Boss kit. They make a series that has some kind of anti corrosion treatment... very interesting.. although it is strange when I search youtube I can't really find anyone with that set up in action.. I know their spacer lifts are pretty top notch...

    Am I crazy to want a mild long travel setup on a 80% road DD 4Runner?

    The 4Runner Pro claims 1” over stock. I feel like every time I pull up to a stop light or pass another 4Runner on the highway I feel like I am sitting lower! Anyhow I could make you a list a page long of lifts for the 4Runner platform. Pretty much boils down to how much you want to spend. Lol.

    How deep can 4x4 vans get you? Beginner questions...

    Great topic, albeit kind of old... I am very interested in the 4x4 sprinters... Unfortunately it isn't in the budget right now, time or money. Someday..someday... I envision traveling around the USA seeing many of the seldom seen corners of the national parks, camping on remote beaches...

    How did Northern Indiana become so popular for RV Manufactures?

    I recently passed through the South Bend area and noticed on I80 there are a lot of RV manufactures... Anyone know how Northern IN became THE RV builder spot? Doesn't seen to be close to anything..lol

    Am I crazy to want a mild long travel setup on a 80% road DD 4Runner?

    Good to know. rust/corrosion is a big, if not top of the list, concern. Main reason I've ruled out Kings and Total Chaos ...

    Am I crazy to want a mild long travel setup on a 80% road DD 4Runner?

    Thats the exact feedback I wanted to hear.. even though comparing the BP51s to a mid travel setup from lets say Icom or Radflo would be kind of close in price... it sounds like it wouldn't be worth it in my situation. not to mention the supporting mods, extended lines, lower and upper links...

    Am I crazy to want a mild long travel setup on a 80% road DD 4Runner?

    One thing kind of leads to another.... I will be due for tires soon. Ive always thought when it comes time Ill use it as a opportunity to go to a larger size(285). At the sometime I would do a lift. When I start researching suspension kits the BP51 stands out to me. It seems to retain the low...

    DuraTracs or K02? 255/75-17 on 5th gen 4Runner.

    Planning my next tire purchase. 2018 Trd Pro. Pretty stock. I do a lot of fire roads to and from hiking locations. About 2-3 off-road trips a year. 1 on the beach, requires airing down. Considering a lift, leaning towards OME BP51s. Main goal is gain ground clearance, maintain reliability...

    Such a simple request, Topo, turn by turn, load files...?

    I am not sure what I want. If a tablet/software will do turn by turn AND a loaded GPX with Topo info all without cell service then that is what Ill do...

    Such a simple request, Topo, turn by turn, load files...?

    I am currently researching and reading multiple threads on the board. I recently went on my first off road trip. I let my friend that has gone to the area lead. He was using Gaia on a iPhone. It seemed to work for him. I am a little old school and prefer a purpose built device like the gpsmap...
