I will repo those wheels if you even think about powdercoat

Hahaha, no worries. I'm super stoked on the polished finish. Couldn't be happier.

I tried to get these for my 88 4runner. Could not get a set so ended up with methods... still on the look out for some. I like 15`s
I thought you could still buy these brand new? Just not beadlock.

Oh man! First fancy wheels and now more cosmetics?!

Looks a million times better with just the smallest upgrades. I personally would of went with a chrome grille, but I’m biased. Nice job dan!

You read my mind! It's getting a chrome grill eventually. I just painted the one I had but it still needs a matching grill from 94. This grill is a 97.
I'd love to get the 94 2wd chrome grill.

Well, finally got to installing the uniballs at the beam pivots and pushing the lower BJ out 1/2" to help with the camber.
Also de-rusted, primed, and painted the beams again. Hoping it lasts longer with a better primer coat.

I must say. I fucking hated doing this job. The uniballs weren't so bad, but the ball joint portion sucked, as did the rust clean up.
I do not recommend tackling this unless you have some serious patience and a butt load of time to kill for marginal upgrades.
