Sid the Sloth build thread.....

Back story:
I have been a Toyota guy for years. Owned and built several LC's over the years. Wife's rig is a '19 LC 200 series.

We Bought the '19 TRD Premium to build as our off road adventure rig. We enjoy getting back to Colorado and seeing the country.

We need not only something capable, but comfortable for the 10 hour trip to some of our favorite places.

Our first outing from KC to the Black Hills in SD towing a 4 seat Kawasaki Teryx. Not the greatest tow vehicle but it did OK given a nice headwind!

Prior to the trip I put a set of Pro wheels and 255/75 Goodyear Dura Tracs on it.

Added a set of sliders right away. Always considered sliders as cheap insurance.

At the same time, bought a Carista to get rid of the annoying economy bar and make a few subtle changes.

Added a pedal commander to help with the lag off the line.

Purchased a set of Wet Okole seat covers. I have used them before with good luck.

The big change.....a complete extended travel kit from Dobinsons and a set of SPC UCA's installed. Only have about 50 miles on the lift so far but like it. Certainly helped with the nose dive under breaking and it rides more like an off road vehicle now.

At the same time installed a bumper from Victory off road and a Warn VR8S.
