Torsion crank and mud terrains :)

Just got this 04 xlt about a month ago. Didn't like the stock rake or tires. I wanted to keep the rig balanced so not too tall or wide but still increase off road capability. The tires are toyo mt's 31/10.5/15. I went to a 15x8 inch wheel which I prefer on a 31" tire. The rims have an extra inch of offset and I painted the centers black. The torsion bars got cranked on and here she is.

Yeah I am in the process of making tube bumpers front and rear, and adding a proper tow hitch and winch platform.

Future stuff (see: "cant afford") lockers, lights, intake, exhaust, stereo, 40mm, UAV, etc...

Oregon City....meaning Oregon City, Oregon?!?? Howdy neighbor!


Yeah pop the wheels off and paint the rear axle shafts and the front CV nut area. It'll look alot better til you get center caps or stock lug nut covers. Or drop by and I'll give ya some center caps! I'm sure I've got a set somewhere at my place near Sandy.
