my front bumpstop setup
« on: Apr 18, 2017, 12:48:12 PM »
I first bought the marlin front bump set up but the small bumps were not nearly tall enough and would have put my springs (RUF) in a negitive arch. I already had some 4.5" laying around so I went with thoes.
The big 4.5" are pretty big so i had to make them removable to get the U-bolt nuts off.

my idea
got another 85 runner. build coming soon!!

John D.
you can steal my design it works perfect up front.
I am working on my rear right now. Its going to be a little more complicated but will be worth the work.
