Nice 4Runner, you're definitely going to have fun with it. The soft top is the way to go, I have not had my hard top on since I bought my softtopper three years ago. The things are pretty bullet proof provided you don't try rolling the sides or back up when it gets below 40ish.

Your 33's look really good, but I agree with you on the body lift being less than ideal, and pretty unattractive as well. I'm currently running....or was running before I began the 1uz swap.....285/75Rx16 on stock Toyota 16x7 18-hole steelies. I went a different way on the lift this time, 10 turns on the stock torsion bars up front, with a 2" lift block kit on the rear and Bilstein HD shocks all the way around. Even with the ARB bumper and winch, the truck doesn't rub at all.....and I wheeled the crap out of it (duhhh) after installing the front and rear ARB air lockers and 5.29's. It's been a stellar setup, so much so, I installed the same thing on my '92 4Runner.

I would avoid the OME rear springs, I had them on my old '89 from eight years ago and they were unbelievably stiff and rode way too harsh. I even pulled the pack apart and eliminated two of the leafs and found little difference, although the rake wasn't as severe. Also the same goes for the torsion bars......way too stiff. Stock bars can be adjusted comfortably to 1.5" provided your running aftermarket bumpers, winch, etc.

Beautiful rig dude!!!

I don’t get it. Everyone slams OME suspension for the 1st gens, yet that is what the PO installed in mine just before I bought it, and it rides amazingly well. Not stiff or harsh at all...

You guys do know OME offers lifts in “light”, “medium” and “heavy”, right? If you buy “heavies” and then install them on a truck that runs around empty, yes, they will ride like crap. “Lights” are for empty trucks, “mediums” for winch bumpers and swingout tire/Jerry carriers, and “heavies” for full blown expo rigs with drawer systems, roof racks etc too.
