Looking for advice on which mod - Updated

Updated

So my son has some money saved up, looking to do next mod on his 07 4runner. I realize these aren't all the same price wise, but these are the mods he is debating over. Any help on suggestions would be helpful. He is currently running a leveling kit with 33's.

1) 3"-3.5" lift with new UCA's
2) All new upgraded rear links from CaliFab
3) rear ARB locker

Thanks,
Ryan

Rear links last, I'm still running my stock set and have only barely bent one but it still functioned fine. Eventually replaced it with my brother's takeoff OEM link.

I would do the lift or locker next. Lift first if you don't know what tire size you'll end up with, you can regear later with the locker and add a front locker at the same time. He might eventually want 34's or 35's so a regear would make sense then.

The order I did: 3" lift, skid plates/sliders, 1.5" body lift, 35" tires, soon to add front/rear lockers along with rear links.

So after doing the suspension lift my son added a 1" body lift.

Then he got some CaliFab lower rear links.

And his ARB rear finally showed up, Marlin Crawler took forever to ship. And that will be installed probably tomorrow.

Looks super clean with no rust at all!! Must be nice...Are you guys going to install the ARB? Did you get a completed 3rd member or are you taking the existing gears and installing the ARB as the carrier?
