So after looking at a bunch of other guys' rigs i decided to post up mine. Shes not the most amazing but i have big plans, hopes, and dreams.



Fabricated my own front bumper and installed 2 500w Hella lights that i integrated into the switch that used to be the stock fog lamps. (that worked out nicely). Spray on bed liner on all plastics in front and on bumper.



cut out fenders to fit theese 33" Nitto Terra Grapplers. on my stock rims that i have also painted with spray on bed liner. (i love this stuff, thanks Jeff)


Rock sliders for a 4runner from Rugged Rocks (heavily used)




Cut off a lot of the body behing rear wheels to fit  the custom rear bumper i made after i built the front.



Airtec snorkel kit


Custom light bar built from a peice of old bed frame! (didnt used to be so rusty) and some wal-mart lights that i panted grey X's on. (the lights are probably better than the hella's!)


Custom shovel mount i made from PVC and Hose clamps. i dont care if its ghetto! the shovels on there!. I need to figure out what im gonna do about the Hi-Lift, IDEAS???
CB antenna mounted to side of the truck. moved rear tire up top. It's not actually sitting on the roof. i have tie downs suspending it from the roof and one strapping it down. so its not sitting directly on the roof aand allws it to move a bit.


Last mod but not least,  a sweet Rugged Rocks Off Road sticker. You all should have one if your reading this. Thats about it so far. Soon to come will be the Calmini 3" lift kit, and a lockright locker in the rear. SAS further down the line. Thumb-Up

Last entry mods you cant see: K&N air filter, 4x4 parts.com Headers, hood pins from autozone cus my latch broke, scuba tank i rigged up wityh an airchuck for fast inflation off the trail. and a "WARNING: DEATH OR SERIOUS INJURY MAY OCCUR"
 sticker on the dash to release me from any liability of passengers.

Do you have any close up pics of the shovel mounts, I have been straping mine to the hi-lift, for the last few years.

theres a hi-lift mount that will clamp to your factory rack, i think they were made for Fj factory racks but they have plenty of uses.

As for the calmini shocks on the 3" life, DO NOT get them.  I had them and they started leaking after the first site of dirt.  get bilstein shocks.

in reply to the question about the shovel mounts, i just made it out of pvc and some hose clamps and just slepped it on there. im sure you could probably do a better job. i just figured, "eh, its about function. this'll do." haha
