okay so i have a question.... i have the OEM preditor step bars on my fj, and i hade them on last time i went to URE and i am wondering, since they really dont do anything as far as pretection if you think it would be best to just take them off because they take that 3 or so inches of ground clearance from my rig..... what do you guys think?

Try taking I-485 to Hwy 49.

or

I-85 exit 42 (this is the I-85 connector) to Tryon Street to University City Blvd (this is hwy 49)

I would take them off. I think they could do more damage than good.

We tried taking 485 to Hwy 49 last time and it didn't work out to well. I will look for exit 42 University City Blvd / Tryon 49

Thanks

fjdarrell, I would take off your side steps for sure .

I85 to exit 68. Make right and take to 52. Make right on 52 and take to 49.

Exit 68 is Hwy 152. It connects to Hwy 52 in Rockwell.

Nick if you go this way, you can shave off some time by bypassing Phiffer Univ and Richfield (my home town by the way). To do this, from Hwy 52 once you pass Gold Hill take a left onto Old Beatty Ford Road and then when it ends take a Right on Stokes Ferry Road. This will put you on Hwy 49 by the river. It will save 3-5 minutes, but most importantly keep you from hitting that 35 mph area.

Got everything taking care of on the 4Runner and ready to roll out in the morning. See you guys at the OutPost 9:00 am

2011TRdIceburg, Sorry to hear about the repair shop, hopefully they will get it fixed for you.

Mike, you know we will miss you tomorrow

Think I am sticking with the Ikea exit off of 85 for 49 to 109.
