My internet at home is super slow, takes about 10 min to refresh. Can only type about 3-4 letters without it going into think mode. Running errands, so it's super quick right now,lol.. I don't use my phone when I'm home, as it's to much of a strain on the eyes

It's a great looking logo but my mind always goes to a Cherokee rather than a 4Runner.

WOW!
Huge difference.
My first thoughts, smooth and quite.
It's like driving a car now. It also looks very different with the 8" wheels. It almost tucks the tires in the wheel wells.
I have so much more acceleration. My Spartan so far does not snap and pop as much. (I hope that continues)
They feel like half the weight of My previous setup.
Bottom line, I feel like I have made a great decision. I did not measure the tires but I think my truck got a bit shorter.
I have more room between the roof of the truck and my garage door.
I would say that the procomp mt2's have great road manners.
Now I really need to know how they do Offroad.
Sounds like a question that needs an answer.
I think I will be driving the 4runner around quite a bit more now.

I will be curious to see how you width on 8s compares to mine on 10s. I have considered the concept of 8s with more offset to maintain some of the track width. You should be close to Rob's setup.

It's days like today that I envy your selectable front locker.  There was enough snow of the road to be just about perfect traction for my 4Runner.  All tire slippage was on purpose.

LOL, its funny You mention the front locker, During My drive to work this Morning I thought of you and how the front locker was going to behave.
But, It's days like today that I envy your round and balanced front drive shaft.  :smack:

I like to run in 2WD in the snowy roads out here.  The KO2s are this shiz-diggidy in the snow though and somewhat of a game changer.  You guys get some very snotty conditions out there though...

Are those 35" MT2s?  How are they on the ice then?
I would rather wake up in the middle of nowhere than in any city on earth.
