I like seeing a member of the (more or less) Stock Family :)

Which lift / tires did you go with?
Have had many lift set-ups over the years, but current setup is:
Dobinsons 222v/223v springs. (2” lift)
Dobinsons 0-3” MRR shocks
Delta 3” arms
Delta rear panhard drop bracket
Dobinsons rear adj UCA
Dobinsons front and rear adj panhard.
Landtank extended rear LCA
Stock sway bars
35” Falken Wild PeakAT3 on stock wheels
No bump stop extensions yet as I am trying to trim where needed then add extensions as needed.
Half this stuff is not needed for a 2” lift, but was part of an attempt to cure driveline vibrations when the lift was higher.

Gotcha, and thanks!

I'm thinking about a simple 2" lift. I keep bouncing back and forth between the front heavy ARB Bull Bumper but then I watch dash cam videos of LC owners and people making dumb turns in front of them...and it makes me want to stay on course with the bumper.

Also a rear swing out.

More parts from Japan 4x4.

Order was actually for my 2010 4Runner but I figured I might as well add a few things while wifey wasn’t looking😬

The 2 1/4 window seals and reservoir cap plus the air/fuel sensor was cheaper through Dave that just the sensor from the local stealership🤦‍♂️

Not this weekend but I installed some 2nd hand Slee Shocks that I had rebuilt by ADS.

A quick test drive to get the annual inspection and they rode nicely with the vehicle unloaded.

They will probably ride a lot better when I fill up the gas tanks and load up the rear.

Got my 94 back from the body shop after getting a respray and taking care of some much needed body work. Once I got all the armor back on I figure I might as well get some new wheels because the 3 week old paint job with 28 year old alloys just wasn’t sitting right with me. It’s been 3 years since I bought it stock and it finally feels complete. But of course now I’m hesitant to beat it up lol time will tell

Looks great! How much did you pay for the respray? Also what rebumper is that?

Finally mounting up her twin ARB/ AccuAir combo. Got a ways to go but its moving again.... Overall goal is Front/ rear outside quick connects to air all 4 BF37's and 2 helper bag dedicated feeds for the rear. Took the Dobinson VT route and thinking I'll stick with them and ditch the old dream of full on rear bags. I'll be more than ready to go back if I ever feel the need. Running the internal 4 valve tank I'm kind of excited to get up and going. Probably way overthinking this but hoping to use the internal tank valve system to to inflate all 4 at once and also deflate to a set PSI before hitting the trail, all from the phone with option to add their analog panel for backup if I feel the need. Going with 4 total separate 3/8" lines to speed it along.

Luv the 8020 stuff. SOoooo easy to work with.
I don't care for the sharkbite (or any other of those type air connectors) in the cold.
The tubing, as well as that little bitty o-ring, shrinks and hardens in the cold and can be a real pain.
