Looks like I'll have a good chunk of insurance money from the hail damage and something on the back of my mind is going LT on the 4Runner.

Thoughts and opinions?

Solo Motorsports $2,200 - These guys did a 20% off sale on black friday last year. If you're serious about it, I'd wait until then to save a couple hundred dollars.

Now none of these kits include the coilovers. Are there any additional items/costs I need to be aware of?

Correct. You'll still need new coilovers, Tundra cv axles, and I'd probably get some spindle and cam tab guessets too.

EDIT: Limit straps if the kit you buy doesn't come with them

It's way more work but I wonder if you would be better served to do a flat belly instead of a long travel? flex doesn't really seem to be a limiting factor as much as breakover clearance.

Good point, Glen. What would be involved in going flat belly? Is clocking the t-case an option on the automatics? Also the fuel tank would have to be relocated which would probably be the most major part of doing a flat belly.

I'm thinking about a short travel kit. You know, to make Yankee Hill difficult again.

Speaking of Yankee hill, I was wondering if a stock 3rd gen, with an inch of sag, and all seasons would be able to make it up Yankee Hill this time of year?
