Thanks for the compliments! It's surprisingly clean for being a little older, I love it.

It's a 2.5" daystar lift from Summit.

http://www.summitracing.com/parts/DYS-KT09124BK/ <----- kind of like that but 2.5" front AND rear

You had to grind the calipers correct? I'm just curious. I tried to test-fit some 15's when I first got my 4Runner and they wouldn't fit over the calipers.

Joe, I have Spidertrax spacers and really like them. They run about $200 for a set of 4 from Spidertrax's website, but I was able to find some "blemished" ones on ebay and got all 4 for about $150. They just had a couple places where the blue anodizing was scratched.

edit: Also wanted to add in case anyone is curious, the spacers still came directly from Spidertrax and were still brand new.

Considerign taht even though the 3rd gen 4Runners door sticker says 15" rims came with it.
Anything above the base of base which I believe is the 2.7l manual or 3.4l 2wd with steel rims could fit 15" rims, at least over my years of learning the 3rd gens is what i have come to a conclusion as.

Yes, the calipers needed a little liposusction. I found the spacers on ebay for $60 for the pair. Then I had to get 24 new acorn lug nuts lol that sucked. Lemme tell ya, most places dont cary that many of the same style and size at once lol.
