Thanks!


As a matter of fact, they're 35s :p

They do look lame on the Runner, but sure do drive nice on the street. For what it's worth, I'm pretty satisfied with them.

I've noticed worst fuel mileage with my 35s. I can get about 3-5 mpg more with my 36s on the interstate at 75-80mph. With my gearing, 35s need a 6th gear.

Do you do much high speed drivin, or mostly around town sort of things, what gears are you runnin in your t-case(s) and diffs?

This was the first year I was able to take my Runner to the Hammers. Here are some pictures. I ran Claw Hammer, Elvis, Martell, Fisher Mountain, and some gnarly little canyon we found by mistake near the bottom of Spooners.

The Runner did great. All I need to do is bullet proof the front end, install a front locker, 14" shocks in the front and she'll be just right! He had a blast!

Nice rig, must be the best gift ever! Have you done the 14" travel up front yet? Working on a s-cab 84 hilux at the moment, but i really like the early 4runners with the top off! Had a 91' 4runner, but with ifs it had to go. Keep posting! ;)

After bein so lucky to win a Trail-Gear rear disconnect from Dave'z Elite member give-away, I got that bad boy installed. I still need to put the setup back in the Runner, but the disco is mated to the t-case.

:yahoo: :clap: :drink: :mudtaco:

Now that the transmission and T cases are back in. We will be adding a 5.29 High pinion third with a Yukon Zip locker

Marlin Crawler HD pinion seal is a good upgrade.
