Nice 4Runner man! Easily my favorite 3rd gen color.

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.

03-31-2010, 11:01 AM
looks good
you got the rims to fit???

03-31-2010, 02:54 PM
Wow those rims looks sexy!
What size are they?
Have to use spacers I presume?

03-31-2010, 03:47 PM
rims are 15X8 MT Classic Locks
I thought I was going to have to refund his $

03-31-2010, 06:01 PM
wow you got 15s to fit, nice!
I wish I could do that, but I have done the Tundra Caliper upgrade leaving me stuck with my 16s

04-01-2010, 10:27 AM
little bit of grinding and a 1" wheel spacer and they fit. i was nervous as hell after i mounted the tires and the rims didnt fit.

04-01-2010, 11:10 AM
where did you get your spacers and how much?
looks like I'm gonning to need some myself

04-01-2010, 12:01 PM
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.

04-01-2010, 09:20 PM
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.

04-02-2010, 09:45 AM
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.
