    Idaho, I went with the Total Chaos "Caddy" kit. I opted for the boxed lower control arm with the uniball upgrade. It was worth the extra cash IMO. I LOVE this kit, it really made me realize how terrible my rear suspension is set up though. Thanks, and I definitely agree, I would baby my $45,000 Runner too if I had to fork out that kind of dough. Ha.

    I've had my almost completely stock 85 4Runner, Timothy, since highschool and I've been mocked more than once for it not "having enough balls"... After spending several weeks at a time living out of the back of it, I fully intend to drive it until the wheels fall off. At which point I will bolt them right back on and repeat until I die. I bought it with 114k on the clock from the original owner back in California who used it as his bike shuttle and to drive all over the Yucatan Peninsula.
    I absolutely love where you started this thread. Living in the city (or even as I write this, a parking lot in Moab) and having to occasionally explain to my coworkers "I think I showered last week?" or "why would I buy a new truck? Mines fine, the muffler just fell off a little and the heater works almost as good as a candle" it's gotten kinda easy to forget there are actually people in Utah dirtbagging it around and putting 10 grand into gas and beer instead of solar panels and overpriced outdoorsy pants.
    Anyways, come this summer when my lease is up, I'll be rejoining my fellow houseless bums on the road, welding on industrial shutdowns 7 12s at a time wherever I can find work and going wherever the hell I want/can, living out of my lovely Timothy (or whatever seedy motel my per diem might put me up in when I need a shower and a matress).

    Love the philosophy, Love the truck. See you out there man! Btw Gemini bridges there in Moab is pretty doable in a beat up old truck. Took my old runner up it a few years back. Such a blast. Also there is some BLM land just outside of town for free camping with incredible night time views of the sky!

    Oh yeah I've camped all over the place out there the last few years and I've got my spots. I can't remember if I've done Gemini Bridges, but I just got home from Chicken Corners this morning.

    X2 on lovin' the truck, and your el cheapo approach. No lift and stock wheels-how refreshing is that! Kinda crappy photos, but they work.

    Excuse me sir but my photography is as amazing as an on sale fifth of Evan Williams bourbon.
    In that it's basically garbage, but you've gotten this far and there's really no turning back now...
    Also thank you for lovin' on the stock *** steelies. I love them too much to switch to 16" things
