    Wind on Wando and Ravenel Bridges

    I have some self-diagnosed PTSD after rolling my 4Runner at highway speeds in Colorado this summer. Long story short after 3 days of driving the bolt holding the driver’s side rear lower link worked its way out just north of Durango. The truck started swaying and struggling to stay in the...

    SPC Rear Lower Control Arms?

    Aren’t aftermarket lower links typically offset to provide additional down travel? It’s not much more than an inch or two.

    SPC Rear Lower Control Arms?

    I’ve never heard these referee to as “RLCA” I think they are normally called “lower links”. You can also replace the upper links and panhard bar. I’ve replaced them on my 4Runner after turning mine into boomerangs after a nasty line at Uwharrie. They tend to push the rear axle into a more...

    285/70r17 KO2 C... but S or Q?

    So after a recent bit of research I have decided to run BFG KO2s in a C load range on my stock (for now) 200 series. These are going on some fresh Rock Warriors so I am excited. Anyway I was about to pull the trigger and I see that the Cs are offered in two speed ratings, Q and S. per BFG Q...

    It’s official

    After wrecking my 4Runner outside of Ouray in August, I finally got the replacement. Damn this thing is nice. Looking for a couple of extra (sets of) hands to help install an OME suspension and some UCAs in the next month or so.

    Rear shock guards/skids/protectors

    I ran these for 2-3 years on my 4Runner and they are awesome. Taking them off yesterday they only thing that I didn't like is the soft collar which protects the bolt needed to be dremeled to free the bolt. I also lost a rear shock bolt after a hard weekend wheeling and this skid was strong...

    ARB vs TJM bumper on a 200

    One thing not mentioned, but is a nice feature on the ARB are the Hi-lift slots. I don't know much about TJM and I can see something going on in the photos, so perhaps they have a similar feature. Very handy in my opinion. I always prefer to lift my trucks from the front for tire changes...

    Auxiliary fuel tank, on used LC 200?

    Ah gotcha. I live in South Carolina. I go to the metric system when thinking about jerry can and aux tanks. Old habits die hard! I looked up the vin and doesn’t seem international. Do you know if Toyota did a factory six tank for non-us vehicles? It’s possible the truck is beat to s***...

    Auxiliary fuel tank, on used LC 200?

    Thanks for the reply! I am going to see the truck Saturday, I purposely didn’t post the location. Lame, I know, but can you blame me? Ha! There is no swing out, so either the spare is missing or it’s a small auxiliary tank. I’ll google the LRA.

    Auxiliary fuel tank, on used LC 200?

    I’m shopping for a 200 series and found a very nice one but noticed in the photos what appeared to be a gauge for an auxiliary fuel tank. At first I assumed it was a factory option because the vehicle has no other aftermarket parts. I did some light research and it doesn’t appear the 200 comes...

    Thoughts on locking lugs

    Are folks running locking lug nuts? Went to rotate tires this weekend only to find my lug but key was missing. I got everything sorted out, but would have been SOL on the trail. I only park in my driveway and at my office. Am I being naive? I’m either going to order two more as backups or...

    2018 Appalachian Rendezvous

    This has got to be one of the best events of the year. in 2017 there were two days of trail riding at Big Creek. I was told in 2016 Friday was at the Grand Overland District (I didn't make it until Friday night). Izzy, any idea if they are going to back to Grand Overland?

    Introduce Yourself

    Richard here. New to ih8mud, but it was recommended by my friend Izzy Sanchez. Not much lurking considering my original registration date, got distracted by other groups. I live in West Ashley and work on Daniel Island. I drive a 2015 4Runner and it’s fair to say I am one of the new breed...
