Beautiful! ! Body lift is definatly the way to go but why stop at 36s ?


well, they're 36x15x15 boggers, and I don't want to re-gear. So the 4.10s (or are they 4.30s?) are going to have a tough time turning anything much bigger than a 36. I do like the mud, so maybe I"ll just go for a 10" body lift and some 44" mudders. MMMMM.... mud.

I'd say skip on the huge body lift and just get a 16" db lift!

Propper introduction

Post by 100%NewZealand on Thu Jan 10, 2013 9:08 am

My name us Mark, I was born in New Zealand, grew up in Utah. Just did a 4 year stint back in New Zealand going to school. Had a year left and decided it was time to bring my wife and kids back to Utah to see the family. My wife Jessica and I have 2 boys, 3 and 1.

Had a few 4x4's in the past, my first one was a 83' CJ7 with a straight 6 (beat the crap out of it) a Nissan Xterra (Gutless, absolutely hated it) and a 06' F250 Power Stroke(Loved it)

Never really done any real wheelin, when I had the jeep it was find some rutted hill climbs up corner canyon in Draper and stand on the gas until you get to the top, other then that I only off road I ever did was while I was hunting.

Love being outside, camping, hunting, DH mountainbiking. Anyone interested in going after some Jacks, Coyotes, etc etc... let me know

Welcome! Our first Kiwi...I like it! Laughing

I am prepping my arsenal now to go hunt some Coyotes. I just got an electronic call from my bro-in-law and my co-worker just loaded me some 110 gr. rounds for my 30-06 - I need to go shoot them and see which powder combo I like best. Overkill for Coyotes, definitely. But, it means I don't have to buy another gun - I can spend that $$$ on my rigs instead!

No such thing as overkill my first gun was a ruger .300 winmag, when I went rabbit hunting with my friends I took the only gun I had. Let me know how that 110 grain works out for you, I loaded some nosler ballistic tip .30 cal 110 grains for my .300, took it to the range and kept getting key holes (bullet tumbles end over end) on the paper at 100yds, figure it was loaded too hot. Good luck with the yotes.

I really gotta familiarize myself with this forum!! Anyway my name is Jared, I'm 30, I'm from Northern Nevada (near Tahoe and Reno area) I've lived in Utah for about 6 years now. I came down here to be a mechanic, I started classes at Weber state and then decided I didn't want to make my passion a job. So yeah long story short I changed my route, and now I'm finishing up a business degree at UVU.

I've always been passionate in the automotive industry. I've worked in a few different Toyota and Honda dealerships, I've pretty much modded every car I've owned, which is only 3 lol. A 3rd gen "scooped" 4runner was a dream car for me since I was 16. I finally found mine about 5 years ago when I sold cars. I bought it within hours of the lady trading it in. I've loved it ever since.

I have all kinds of stories and places I've been. I like taking on new hobbies. I cant wait to finish building my rig (if it ever gets finished) Anyway that's me Smile

Hey guys. I'm new to the forum. I was recommended here by Kevin. My name is Carter and I live in Nibley, Utah. I'm currently going to college at USU. Last summer my grandpa sold me an 87 22R Pickup for $250. That truck is was started my love for Yota's. I drove it the whole summer but got t-boned by a high school student and the truck ended up totaled. I bought an 87 SR5 22RE 4Runner for $975 with the insurance money and put some 31" Big O Big Foot tires on and came out even.

I have joined a couple forums to gain some knowledge to build my runner into the beast I want it to be and maybe make a few friends Smile

Prov is easy Very Happy They finally opened it up again after rebuilding the road and it's slanted pretty hard downhill. Kind of sketchy on slick snow, but still made it up! I still need to make it up to Logan Peak though. I tried it in my Pickup and my engine started on fire haha

I've never been up Prov, I wouldn't mind driving it just for the views.

Good to see you here, Cartzo, let's get your baby fixed up.

Don't hate. Jealousy doesn't look good on you.

True that. But that might be the only thing that doesn't look good on me! cheers

When it drys up enough I would mind hitting some of the hardware Ranch area. I know they are really "hard trails" but I've heard they're fun and worth doing.

You should start a thread on that, Ty. My Utah Trails book has Hardware Ranch as moderate, and it's written for idiots in crossovers and chronically overrates trails. But maybe it's not talking about the same trails you are?

I've never actually ran hardware but my understanding is it is fairly tame. Probably comparable to Rattlesnake. Not quite to the level of Forest Lake. I could be wrong though. I've looked at the Utah trails book and I agree a lot of the trail seem over rated. But i'de rather be over prepared than under prepared.

Prov is smooth and Millville is a bit rockier. I have been up Left Hand in Hardware my whole life it's one of my favorites. Know those trails like the back of my hand! I went up the harder trail up Left Hand with a couple buddies, but I didn't dare go all the way because I didn't want to break something. (Back when I first got my runner)
