Mikey, when I built my brother truck, I used a 3.5" progressive coil from icon. I hadn't seen it before, but it works great for him and handles loads well. I remember the 3.5" Fj could not doing well under heavy load on my truck

Any updates yet? I am really curious to see 37" tires on a 4Runner without a body lift!

Maybe the truck caught fire and he doesn't want to tell us.

Well with the extensive amount of tubbing that I'm having to do on the front end I decided to put the truck on hold until my move to Oregon is done. It has been sitting awaiting completion for a while now. I'm also actually still waiting on the front RCVs still. They have been in the redesign stage for some time now.

On another note. My good buddy was building a 4th gen at the same time and decided he didn't have time to finish it. So. I have a all pro long travel setup for sale! It's the same one I listed earlier but now has about 200 miles on it. Please let me know if anyone is interested. I will make them a deal. Also, all the miles are on road. It has never been off pavement.

Would you be willing to sell the rear shocks that is if he isn't keeping them? I already got the front done. haha

Oh and keep me posted on the RCV axles. I went with CVJ for mine. But if RCV makes a high angle ultimate axle like their site says, might make me get a set.

Hey Mikey. I may be willing to sell the rear shocks separate. Give me a few days to decide.
