Just so I understand correct:

"Please note, the winner MUST also purchase the following items from All-Pro to insure the proper set-up"

"Please do not enter if you cannot purchase the additional items that are required"

You are giving away a kit, ONLY if the winner agrees to fork over up to $2000 in additional parts, only from you?? That does not sound like much of a "Give-A-Way". Maybe a half price sale.. Why not give a complete kit, instead of half of one?

If we choose a 2WD Prerunner on 33s, then they only need to buy the shocks, which we are requiring since we have them made specific to our kit. We can't give those out for free since we don't manufacture them.

Same thing with the axles, they are made specific to our kit but we don't manufacture them.

I guess the Timbren bumpstops can be bought anywhere, we were just trying point out that they are required with 35" tires.

We did a similar promotion with our Tacoma SAS kit, giving away the basic link and bracket kit without the coil-overs. Maybe someone will appreciate us giving away a $2795 kit in today's economy! :rolleyes:

I have been looking around for a setup that performs better than a stock IFS but not as hardcore as some of the other long travel kits out there. I was actually considering placing an order on this setup about a week ago until I heard about this. Sound like a good deal to me since I just bought an All-Pro Plate bumper and the rear Fox Shocks. My plans for the truck are to build a moderate expeditionary style rig while not going over the top.

I am currently finishing up my third deployment to Iraq, so I am not home as much as I would like to be to enjoy the truck. I may be stationed in Europe in the next couple of years after a deployment to Afghanistan. With that in mind, I need something reliable which i see in the All-Pro setup.

Thanks for the entry! I think I've been talking to your wife in handling your recent order. I wish we could give a kit away to every soldier for all you guys & gals do for us (except I hope the Marines don't take Johnson Valley away from us!:)).

You might want to change either your post on here, or your website wording though. You posted here that the other parts are a MUST, and your website says that all of those parts are an OPTION. Which is it?

It is really two different things. We are doing the giveaway as a way to promote our kit. As such, we hope to use the truck we chose in future marketing to show a truck other than one of our own, so it wouldn't make any sense to show a truck with different shocks than the ones we sell and recommend for our kit.

As for our website, we listed them as an option is case someone wanted to use our kit with shocks they may already have. Although this setup might not be ideal, it will work if the proper bumps and limit straps are used.

Also, the bumpstops and axle shafts are an option in both situations since not everyone will need them.

I hope that makes sense - we were just trying to hook someone up with one of our kits, sheesh! :D

I know, you just like to give me a hard time. ;)
Are you going to enter your wife's FJ or what?
I certainly would if it was still in the driveway:D

We have an 08 4 Runner now, and I am keeping it stock for a bit. I drive 50k+ miles a year, so the gas mileage has to stay good for a bit.....;)

Why chose me?
As the owner/founder of several business’ I realize that the input of advertisement dollars is to both generate sales; as well as, to express good will. I’ve been 4 wheeling since 1979 and although It was not until 2006, that I owned a Toyota, I still remembered “All-Pro” as a reputable source for Toyota components (my father brought home a 1979 Toyota 4x4, as a ranch truck). Your components on my vehicle would be a representation of both. One of the business that I founded is a non-profit support system for elite vehicles and their owners. The site generates close to 200,000 views each month and is maintained, funded, and operated exclusively by myself. I understand good-will, and appreciate your gesture of the same!

I did not build this vehicle for the notoriety that might ensue from “just the right combination of components” or to fit in. I built this vehicle to use. My limited family and I use it to get groceries; as well as, haul our off-road vehicles and shelter, to areas that the Hilton, and Motel 6 do not accommodate.

This is currently the second set of lift/wheels/tires on this vehicle. As is the case with many, I’m evolving. Since the DB lift, I now desire increased travel, but do not want to change the fenders of the truck (which I believe is required by the other LT manufactures). I like desert trucks, but this is not one, and I prefer to keep the lines of the truck clean. You will not see many; if any of my mods listed on these pages, because I am not one to boast about “what I have”. You, on the other hand, have something that I desire so badly, that I will open the book; in order to be placed on the judgment table!

Pick me!

my entry




addedphotos from today



i was tryng to get the WE CO's to flex out in the front, but couldnt

new pics from install over the weekend



and i will be lowering the front a lil bit to keep the cv fins from touching after i get my AP bumper on


Currently running Allpro UCAs, sliders, IFS skid, Walker Evans CO's, 3" AP Leaf Kit w/ Walker Evans Shocks, and LT255/75/17 BFG MT's...all the mods that matter...

Looking to purchase the remaining Allpro skids and plate bumper later.

Very active member on TW, but just getting over here to promote a NC based 4x4 club in conjunction w/ a local Toyota dealer. Looking to have something to show off to the local folks, as well as perform on the trails. Eventually, I will have another vehicle and this will be my dedicated buggy and will need some serious backbone.

One question though, will this kit work with the WE CO's? I just talked to Terry up there today to order some of the steel washers for the UCA's.

Hello All Pro,

I have been fortunate enough to witness the long travel kit on your white Tacoma in action about two weeks ago out in JV. The kit is very impressive. I have never really been interested in any long travel kits, mainly because of the price. But looking at the components in person up close made me drool at the idea of what I could do with my FJ with this type of set up. I am currently running the extended travel Icon coil overs with TC UCA's that perform great together, but this would be even better and a sugnificant step up and give me peace of mind on those extra bumpy and tippy sections.

I am currently using All Pro's Front winch bumper, rear bumper, high clearance exhaust, front IFS skid, transfer skid and beefy sway bar collars.
I am always in the process of biulding my FJ and as of now am working on adding new front and rear differentials with 4:56's and lockers.
These days I find myself in the desert almost every weekend and the kit will benefit my needs for sure. It would be awesome to win a long travel kit like this, especially from a vendor like All Pro.

Dear All-Pro:

Ever since I read about the concept, then release of your new long travel suspension setup, I have read TTORA members’ opinions, criticism, and praise for All-Pro’s new long travel kit. It is no surprise that All-Pro has some stiff competition (Total Chaos and Camburg come to mind) when it comes to this share of the off-road recreation market. After reading what other members of this forum have had to say regarding the All-Pro setup, I came to realize that I have not seen anyone running your setup. This is where I can see a late model Tacoma like mine coming into play.

Lately, I have found myself wanting to get out into the desert terrain here in Southern California (Johnson Valley and Ocotillo Wells to name a couple), but I have found that even with a “medium-travel” setup, I would eventually want something more. My Tacoma has been limited. Yes, I have looked at the Camburg and Total Chaos kits, but have not had the nerve to spend the money that it would take to purchase either of them. This lack of wanting to spend on either of kits was also because I have been waiting to see exactly what the All-Pro long travel setup is capable of doing. I know that your kit will increase the potential of my Prerunner, and allow it and me to have more fun in the desert terrain. I have always been a believer of underdogs and seeing what the underdog (All-Pro) can do amongst giants (Total Chaos and Camburg), in this segment of course. I feel this is one way, and the right way to do it. If my Tacoma is chosen as the winner for this contest, All-Pro will not regret it. Thank you.
