Looks good Rory.

Even though those are bigger tires, they still look pretty small on that truck.

Thanks for pointing it out Booker!!! I was content until you mentioned it and then I looked again and sure enough they still look to small!!!

With the 2" extra offset on these rims I have minor rubbing issues up front when the tires stuff and are turned. But as for the 37's I absolutely love them!!


I picked up 1mpg in the city and with my new air filter and tires I picked up 2mpg on the highway over where i was before...and that was with a trailer behind and comparing to an empty truck.!!!

In all I am definately going to be looking for new 37's down the road.

After lifting Chris' Dirt Smurf this weekend and measuring up the 2 truck side by side we discovered that we have no idea what kind of lift is on my truck.

It has 5" drop Brackets and Tuff Country Shocks. From Searching online the only 5" kit out there is made by Tuff Country and also has 6" blocks in the rear with a 1" add a leaf which give about 4" of lift out back

However, when compared to Dirt Smurfs 6" Fabtec lift we sit pretty much dead even on the same 37" BFG AT tires.

It could be a 5" Tuff Country lift that sits high.
It could be a 5" Tuff Country lift that someone swapped in 6" Coils up front
It could be a Procomp 6" Lift running upgraded Tuff Country Nitro Shocks.

So from this point forward the lift on Ironhide will be referred to as a 6" Franken Lift.

In any case, it rides better than stock and only slightly harsher than the 6" fabtec with Bilstein 5100 shocks on Dirt Smurf. I contribute the difference to a combination of the shocks and the add a leaf that I am running out back giving me 1" lift at the back over the Fabtec.

Whats sad is that this is your biggest mod to any 4x4 in a long time. And whats even worse is you don't have the excuse of having a wife or kids getting in the way of that kind of stuff.

There is an order for the 4runner being processed as we speak.
There is a new hanger that has been fabricated as well but I cannot take credit for that work. I can however probably post up a picture.
