    I am going to go ahead and do my ROTW although I won't be able to answer questions right away. This is going to be my second ROTW, I won't bore you guys with when I bought the 80 and what inspired me to get into Land Cruisers, I covered all of that in my first ROTW. The upgrades that I have done since the last time are :

    OME J springs
    OME L shocks
    Slee SS 4" longer brake lines
    Slee front sway bar drop bracket
    Slee rear sway bar bracket
    Slee front bumstop spacer
    Slee rear bumstop spacer
    Slee blue bushings
    315/75/16 Toyo Open Country MT's
    updated 4x4labs rear bumper w/side protection
    Iron pig offroad belly skid plate
    I am sure I have forgotten something, if it comes to me I will update the list. I put the suspension and tires on my truck a week before Cruise Moab 07, it handled perfectly. I had a small amount of rubbing at full flex, so I think I am going to run a 1.5 spacer upfront. Right now I am running a 1" Mr.gasket spacer and have a bit of the "stink Bug" look. Here are some pics of the truck.

    Whar rear springs are you running...863's? Do you plan on a coil spacer to get rid of the stinkbug look?

    Thanks guys, I am running 863J springs in the rear and 850J springs in the front. I am also running a 1" spacer in the front, the rear sits higher than the front as seen in the pics. Not a big deal but I think eventually I will switch to a 1.5" spacer. The 4x4labs bumper is a piece of art. Very rugged, I beat the crap out of it in Moab, scraped it on rock, had the whole wight of the truck on it a couple of times and it still looks good, a very good buy. I am borrowing the two jerry can holder from Luke until he has my ladder/three jerry can holder ready for pick up, what a nice guy:) here are some pics of the rear bumper.

    Your rig looks great. Are accessories interchangeable on the 4x4 labs rear? like the ladder and jerry cans?

    yes the accessories are interchangeable on the rear bumper, he calls his system modular. Currently I have a tire carrier and a two jerry can holder. He is making me a ladder which a three can jerry can holder attaches to, pretty cool design. Thanks for the complement Sam I think Luke told me that you and I plus one more person in Colorado has the rear corner panel protection. He says its a pain to make and that the truck needs to be at his shop for him to get it right. KV, thanks yes it was time for new rubber and I didn't want to stick to the 285's so in came the 315's:)

    thanks fellas, here are some pics of underneath, the Hanna sliders/cat skid-plate got a good workout, not so much the IPOR skid-plate, the last pic is of my exhaust which I had rerouted. Previously the exhaust came out behind the rear passenger side tire. When I stepped up to the 315's it was apparent that it was going to get crushed. I had a muffler shop reroute it to exit right under the rear bumper.
