Thanks, I don't see many of the silver Eibachs on anything, so I was curious how they compared to mine. It looks like yours are 2" shorter, but 100 lb/in heavier.

Overland Warehouse has all of their coils powder coated silver. I think if you want they can pc them what ever color you want. They use to use a different coil company until recently from my understanding. Not sure about the length comparison of the 2 different coils but mine sure are beefy and long, at the lowest setting of the coilover it provided 4.25" of lift. Later when I get a bumper I can just crank them up to compensate for the weight. Win win situation. Cool

Ha, crank them up?? When I added the ARB 150+ pound bumper on my lighter springs, I didn't get 1/8" sag out of it, so I doubt yours will move even that much. Pretty sure there will be no cranking involved unless you mount a tractor bumper with extra weights on there.

Well so far i've added the 60 lbs skids now i'm going to mount up my 80 lbs sliders. I think I will be fine. The 4Runner is a bit longer then the FJ, this adds more tongue weight for the bumper, eventhough; it is the same prada 120 frame, engine and everything else except the the body & interior. But i'm sure it will be fine. I've heard that the ride actually will improve with the added weight on these coilovers. So far i've been very impressed with them!

Well I guess I just can't leave well enough alone. After my trip loaded up with gear and all. I decided to add some more height to the rear. Added some 1.5" rear spacers on both sides. Now I have 4.25" of rear lift to match my 4" front lift. I have the coilovers close to the lowest setting with barely sny threa showing on the passenger side 2/16" and adjusted the drivers side to about 1/4" showing to level out the front lean. I really like the way it sits now.

Off roading pictures coming soon

I have installed the Light Racing UCA's and I am very happy with the results. These things are beefy too!
