Had to do only a minor bit of modification in the front (moved the inner liner forward and trimmed a small piece off of the bumper) to not rub. Wheels are FN f(x) Pros with 0 offset, tires are C load Nitto Ridge Grappler in 285/70. Shop for me 4.5* caster on both fronts.

As an added bonus, I got notification today that my order from the RCI GB shipped today!
Hey man I saw the shop who did your work post it today on Facebook. How was the bmc work and how pleased are you overall with their work? I need a few things done and they are on the short list. thanks!

Did some rodent extraction. I think it's a Deer Mouse. He didn't seem to chew anything up I don't think he was in there very long.

Went from KO2 265ís to General Grabber
285ís today! Looks pretty good, canít wait to see how the grabbers do. My old KO2ís were fantastic but low on life and starting to make some noise.

I had Grabbers on my 2005 Grand Cherokee and loved them. Really good off road and on road were quiet, great in snow and rain. I think you'll like them.

Hear me out... my bad on the delay... I've just been gone.
Wish i had a diagram but...
The head unit is HD velcro mounted on the inside of the back wall of the center console/arm rest box.
This port extender cable travels up the right side from the center console around the 4WD shifter, behind the dash, and out to this port/panel.
For now I'm running a mag mount antenna that I place as needed and wire it into the driverside rear door and under the floor mat.
I added a PL-259 elbow to the side of the center console (hidden between the seat and the left side of the panel so one kicks it). That is connected to the head unit via a 2 or 3 foot "jumper" coax cable routed along the rear HVAC vent (between the removable panel and the center console wall (which I drilled a hole into). Basically made it so I didn't have to worry about cable management through the center armrest lid.

I hope this helps. Feel free to reach out for more details or pics. I'll try not to disappear again

Hey CajunMike, what sliders do you have? I like how they are tucked up nice and close to the body...

The welding work is top notch. On my EimKeith PCK, after they prepped & painted you can't even tell where the weld is, same with the BMC... looks factory. There were a couple of issues come up, but they handled it no problem... including going to the alignment shop on the weekend to show the "not the regular" alignment guy how to do a proper alignment on a Toyota with adjustable UCAs.

We're going to use them again when my wife is ready to put a lift or level on her Tacoma.

No sliders yet. Those are just the factory Predator step tubes with the steps removed. Have since had to put the steps back on so the wife could climb into the 4Runner. What did you do to/in your 5th Gen today?!

Sprayed the frame with Boeshield for some rust protection and got a new spare tire to match the Toyo AT3's I had installed a month ago when I picked up the truck.

Put on my new roof rack over the weekend. Pretty happy with how it looks, and I know I'll be happy to get some additional cargo space to put to use.

Did my tire chalk test yesterday, came up with 37lbs fronts and 33lbs rears on a set of P285/70/17 Toyo AT3. Does that seem about right?

Those should be alright. I owned and daily drove a '96 T100 4x4 4" lifted for 23 years. Sold it and got the 2020 ORP.
But anyway The Generals were cheaper than just about everything else and they last a long time. 33x12"s so I can't say they are the quietest out there but whatever, I consider them a good value and they work.
I always, always picked them up from tire rack and go somewhere for mounting. Maybe ill try them on the ORP at the right time.
