It should run about 100 bucks. Also, I work on my truck all the time without a torque wrench. Once I get the wheels back on I just stop by Les Schwab in the next day or so and have them put a torque wrench on it. Takes like 5 minutes and I've never had to wait.

I do recommend getting a floor jack and jack stands for home use. You'll use them more than you think. If you are going to spend money on anything to keep in the 4R I'd recommend getting an electric impact gun and an 80lb torque stick. Even with your factory bottle jack you can have a tire changed out in 2.5 minutes.

Call a shop and ask what they'd charge. Make sure they use the provided loctite and torque properly. I doubt it would cost much.
Ok thank you. But does the stock bottle jack lift my car high enough since itís lifted now? I assumed it was for stock height 4runner (obviously never had to use it).

If you do spacers, won't you need longer wheel studs?

The spacers come with its own wheel studs where you attached the wheel to.

Powerbuilt 620470 Unijack - 4000 lb. Capacity Amazon.com: Powerbuilt 620470 Unijack - 4000 lb. Capacity : Automotive

I think Iím going with this. Is 4000lb enough or do I need to get the 6000lb?

I wouldnít mess with spacers in the first place. Iíve had them and tried everything to get my tires not to run. Only option was go back to stock size tires or a BMC. I took them off after month.

Not that you lift the whole truck at once but a 4Runner weighs more than 4000lbs. The 6000lb jack also lifts three inches more than the 4000lb which you may need.

I went with the 6000lb myself.

Yes, it could (and probably will) take as little as 20 minutes, however it would take longer to do the job properly.

Personally not a fan of spacers, but you didn't ask.
You need better friends with tools

Correct me if I'm wrong but I think the standard bottle jack will work well, even with larger tires. You'll want to place it under the axles which aren't affected by your lift.

So on trails, MAYBE you need a large Jack base for your stock jack. At home though, a nice jack and jack stands from Ace, HD, or Lowes will be plenty useful.

Don't get a Hi-Lift jack. You do not need it.
Also. get a friend or family member with stuff and know-how and see what they're using.

For jacks, I've used my low profile jack on the 4R, from when I always played with lowered cars. For the rear, I jacked it up from the middle of the axle. Gets up more than high enough. For the front, I used the little circle indentation, this barely gets the front up high enough.
In the near future, I do plan to order the Pro Eagle 2 or 3. Or maybe have my friend fabricate a plate extension for current jack.

I see you're in socal, if you need some help, or want to use my equipment, hit me up

I put this on my low profile jack: Off Road Jack Extension 8" OR 15" - Pro Eagle

with this adapter: Lift pad EXTBM - Pro Eagle

I just needed to file the center hole a little larger on the adapter to get it to fit on my low profile jack.

OH SNAP! I didn't realize they made those to work with other brand floor jacks. I used my brother in laws Pro Eagle and thought it was what I needed. Then I saw the price... and just put it on the back burner list of things I want to buy.

Was going to get a friend who does a little fabrication to make me a spacer to sit on top of the jack.

But this will do exactly that. awesome stuff! thanks for the info.

The few times I read about wheel spacers failing was when the user had a shop install them. Agreed with everyone on here, do it yourself, do it right, and make sure to continue checking. If that's a pain for you, just get a big negative offset wheel, safer in the long run.
