    Final verdict for 305/70’s… she rubs haha

    not enough to where you can’t wheel it, but there ain’t a single wheel that doesn’t rub when fully stuffed. Local off-road park rates trails on a scale of 1-5. Spent most of the day on 2’s and 3’s. Very surprised, but getting acclimated to this truck was a trip. I’m used to being in the bigger truck and way up on 37’s. Very pleased.

    Well I finally found enough time to get all the pieces moving for this. Tentatively on the books for early February. Plan is to run this temporarily until I go SUA and go ahead and get the front LT started.

    Originally was going to do the archive garage rear shock relocate, but my new fab guy said he’d rather just build his own.

    Changing out the pintop mount to the standard eyelet, but it’s going to be nice to have some bypasses on the truck again.

    Leather wheel out of a GX470, but I’m inclined to say sienna. Doesn’t match, but was cheap enough for me to just get it anyways.

    10 minutes and no more torn up rubber wheel.

    Yeah almost all the Toyota wheels are interchangeable for early 2000’s models.

    Beadlocks installed! Didn’t need balancing and steering feels a lot better. That extra 1/2” width on the wheel is really noticeable even with 305’s.

    They definitely poke. They have the same poke as the last set of wheels except they're wider, but that's all on the inside barrel.

    Any other pics of those fogs? Mounting? Cutting? Sturdiness? I would like to do that to my tundra.

    They’re sturdy, but you have to gut almost the whole fog pocket to get it to work. They mount just like anyone else who’s put pods in the fog pockets these are just bigger and more expensive. I’d stick to the smaller pods if you’re not willing to cut the bumper up a ton. Don’t have any pics of it unfortunately

    I like how they fill the pocket up, so it just mounted to the plastic of the bumper?

    Correct, but you have to cut basically the whole fog pocket to fit it. If you wind up spending the $440 for the pair and put it in the pocket you'll figure out pretty quick where it needs to be cut.

    Small update:

    -Bypasses rebuilt, new top caps, new shock shafts with lower mounts. Waiting on the fab shop.
    -Ride height adjustment in the front. Cranked in the front and slight squatted, but I don't mind.

    Well worth the investment if you have multiple lights or accessories. I used 5/8 slots already.

    I wonder if it would work with an e-locker. What all do you currently have connected to it?

    It should. Guys use them for ARB lockers all the time. They have different size fuses for different accessories.

    Personal preference, but I’d put a standalone switch for a locker and utilize the switch blank. I really only use these for lighting since I don’t care for a winch and I only need an LSD.

    If it fails I typically upgrade. I push trucks really hard and do a ton of camping so it makes sense to spend the money. Also just love building vehicles and off-road trucks have become a passion for me. This one being my 4th Toyota truck I’ve really got my eyes set on a goal so I’ll just keep spending haha.

    you just have to live on marketplace. Stuff goes fast!

    I'm on my 5th Toyota. I only modified 4 of the 5 and I'd only really consider 2 of those to be "builds."

    With two kiddos, and two/four guaranteed days off a month, I'd rather spend time with them, than wrench nowadays. Shocker IYKYK.

    Sweet truck though! Crackie will be there one day when I can wrench WITH my kiddos

    This one definitely is just getting started. Last truck is documented on here and was pretty built. Lot of phases which I’m not doing with this truck. Just being patient and not compromising on this truck.
