Nice. I tried to keep the other cars out of it, but good eye. s2000's are awesome. That one was my daily driver until I started commuting to UH. Then I realized I needed something different. Without getting too off topic, here you go:

NICE thread!
OME & the pervirbial stinkbug... why do the do that? Yep you have to use a front spring spacer or switch the combo of springs. 851/866, 850/860, 850J/863...

As far as 37s/2" lift no rub vs. 6"/35s rub is as you said bump stopping up travel & back spacing of the wheels. It all about tucking them in rather than a wide stance. Those fenders are approx. 38" as I have measured, so a 37 done correctly can fit without major body work. Check out the official 37s & up thread & check out there build threads. Here is a stuffed 37.

Another thing a lot of the 37" crew does is a that 1" in the fender via a 1" body lift. I really didn't understand until I did my own BL. It adds the 1" in the fender that you need for the 1" of the 37 from the 35.
After doing my 1" body lift I'm ready to go with less lift by removing my front spacer from my 851/860 medium lift.

Hope this helps.

It helps, but I think I might just leave the lx450 as a daily and keep it 35's. My new stepdad has a late 80's model Toyota pick-up with 4wd that needs some work, and he asked me to fix it up and show it a little TLC for the dear lease trails in Junction, Texas when we go. I'm already dreaming of the things I would do to that truck in the hardcore corner!

The following pictures are to give you an idea on just how much light output this is. In the above picture I am standing 20 yards away on a clear, sunny day at 11:30am.

This is the same spot on my driveway at night, with my garage about 30 to 40 yards away.

This is what you would see from inside my garage. It's pretty ridiculous. The beam reaches out to at least a half a mile. I want to add a couple things that I noticed about the light when I installed it.

First, it's so easy a caveman could do it. Once you figure out where and how to get it mounted, it's just a matter of time before you're blinding the s*** out of everyone. Seriously. This can get you into trouble if you use it on the road.

Second, road signs reflect this light really well, and you can occasionally blind yourself. I think because of the position of the light, and the angle of the beam, some of the spot pattern is able to reflect directly back into the cabin. Again, it's fun and I still do it, but this is not meant for the road! Some states they don't even let you drive on public roads without it covered. Check your state laws before installation!

Third, it's freaking awesome! With low beams, high beams, and the 20" combo, it's like a whole new world driving at night. Totally worth it, and I giggle inside every time I flip the switch.

Anyway, speaking of switches, the OEM auxiliary light switch should be in Thursday and once the install is completed I'll snap a few pics of how I routed the wires and the switch. I'll also do a brief review and offer a few tips on the installation.

Thanks, Glen!

Installation finished. Here's how I did it.

Bolted this way, the bumper needs to be unbolted in order to uninstall the light. Unless you cut the cable, and cut the mounting brackets, that light isn't going anywhere. I just used the standard mounting brackets. The "security kit" isn't needed, especially at the price they offer it at.

Through the rubber grommet in the firewall. I don't know if that's factory or not, but it made install a breeze.

Extended the wiring for the switch.

Did that relay overheat? Just noticed the pic. Otherwise, looks great. I just picked up the same head unit with bluetooth and I live it. I upgraded the 4 door speakers, and the rears as well. Didn't do the dash speakers as that's way too much high's for me. No boom boom yet, as the budget is thin. Need a space saving sub, like bazooka tube, or a contoured box, which I haven't been able to find one for the 80.

Decided to NOT build a swing out tire carrier on my bumper, and I'm entertaining options of how to mount the tire in the cargo area. Up or down?

Up. You can get more cargo in their. Make a 3/4 drawer set for the rest. Here's my quick and dirty unfinished. I have a 315 in there now.
