Hello everyone. This is my 2014 sr5 4Runner along side of my 2010 Tacoma which I sold. I first put my Tacoma wheels/tires onto my 4Runner.
I then chose the desired lift for my 4Runner.
lift- bilstien 6112/5160, toytec 1/4” top plates, toytec diff/sway bar drop, ome 2 inch rear coils, spc upper control arms
After the lift I decided I no longer enjoyed the 20 inch wheels and decided to get out the Dremel and make a change
Old wheels – 20×9 ion alloy 135, 275/55 r20 duratracs
New wheels/tires – 285/70r17 toyo open country, 17×8.5 method race wheels
Now that I have finished the lift and wheels/tires I am on to the odds and ends. Here are some accessories I have added and a list of items on order(will try to add photos once items arrive.)
other accessories- Cali raised led fog lights, Cali raised ditch lights
Items on order – trd pro grille, avs bug deflector, black roof rack caps, more to come
thanks!January 5, 2019 at 8:56 pm #207663Toy-YotaParticipant
Welcome to TNTT, pumped for a new build on here. Good call on the wheel and tire change up, the Methods look rad!
Love fifth gens, especially in white. Good call on the lift do you find the ride quality has improved at all or no?January 5, 2019 at 9:06 pm #207664
Thanks! I am happy how the lift preforms! Really eliminates the fifth Gen nose dive and really helped to soak up the body role. It performs pretty good and articulates well. The spc upper arms really helped keep everything aligned. I had the 5100s on my old Tacoma and find the ride quality a little better with the 6112/5160. I had a bit of free cash and wanted to do something different but if you were on a budget though I’d go with the 5100s. As far as the wheels I am happy with the bronze. It’s a nice change from just black and whiteJanuary 6, 2019 at 1:03 pm #207667
Nice work indeed!
Is this the same Tacoma is on Hamilton Kijiji? I’ve had my eye on this one:January 6, 2019 at 1:25 pm #207668
Answered my own question… different front bumper, wheels, grille and hood, etc……January 6, 2019 at 2:02 pm #207669
Funny you ask but I actually bought my Toyota grille for my tacoma from him. Really nice guy! He had done a lot of work on that truck and has a new frame from the recall. I sold mine awhile back to a local kid for his first vehicle.January 6, 2019 at 3:11 pm #207670toys-n-yotasParticipant
Hey @Benjamers, awesome looking 5th gen! Looks like you’ve got a solid jump on tweakin’ that 4Runner to suit your needs.
I also met Josh selling that Taco @Slick posted. I bought a softtopper off him a few weeks before his truck went in for frame recall. Small world.

Really is a small world in Toyotaland, everyone knows everyone or knows someone who does.
So is this thing more of a driver, or do you take it camping and in the dirt?January 6, 2019 at 6:19 pm #207679
This is just my all around vehicle so had to set it up in a way it would be comfortable for a commute. Other than that mostly just trail rides and camp. The misses has a jk with 33s so we just keep it mostly to trails. Used to have mud trucks so not a huge fan of mud anymore and bought a quad for that. Just gets the undercarriage to annoying to work on and eats away components a lot faster. I’m just building this to get me where I want to go and not have a hard time getting thereJanuary 6, 2019 at 8:54 pm #207682KrezzModerator
