85 4runner low ridin on 37's

As the title says I've got an 85 4runner and the idea is to keep it real low with 37" MTR's locked up front and rear with some armor and have some fun. Here is what I've done so far.

Stock


No lift on 37's with fenders cut


Front axle moved up 2"

nice clean 4runner.

looks good as is, put some sliders on to save your rockers. you'll know when more triming is required.

Looks good... Im curious to see how muh rubbing you get. But I lik your idea of keeping it as low as possble though. It looks good that way... especially after relocating front axle.

Keep us updated.

Nice looking runner, Did you just use relocation plates on the spring packs to move it forward...? i've seen 1" plates but not 2".

When in doubt, Throttle out!

Sorry it's been so long since I've updated yall but I've been stuck with a motor issue for a while now. Anway I'll get pics of the axle moved forward ASAP (4runner is at the shop right now but should have it back in the next few days). I'm not planning on bulking up the axles until I break something and hopefully it will take a while being that I don't really thrash my rig. I did put some spacers on it for a little added stability and I think it looks better.

Excellent fucking job sir .

Nice job on the fender trimming...looks clean and stock, and the width looks about perfect where it sits now.

x2 what Hytenor said .
