    Sweet! I like how you opted to keep the "saggy-but-syndrome" of the 4Runner.... :D :p

    The front will not sag out that much, you will need to address the saggy but 4Runner...

    Good luck!

    The height in the front doesn't really look that bad to me. If it were me, I'd get the bumper and winch back on and give the rear 3 or 4 more inches or whatever to level it out and give it room to flex and stuff back there. Otherwise I'b bet those tires are gonna rub like crazy back there if you don't.

    BTW, I likey you're other runner as well. What year is it?
