Fabtech Trail Boss / AT4 4" lift Method 305 NV 18x9 -12 4.5" Toyo MT 35x12.5r18

Deep matte black vinyl wrap with a gloss black chrome delete!

First paint correction and seal on the AT4 now that winter is over. This blue looks even better after a clay/polish/seal.

There are a couple different way's I've done it.  Your local Autozone sells a kit that has brackets I mounted onto my radiator support.   This picture is an entire aftermarket grill assembly I was testing.

I see. Do you have a link to the brackets? I am trying to accomplish this same look with the factory grille.

Thanks

Installed Bilstein 5100s in the rear. Easy job, just need a 21mm socket, ratchet, torque wrench and a 21mm wrench. Didn’t have one so I subbed the 21mm wrench for 13/16s. Top bolt on the drivers side was a little tough to reach between the spare tire and exhaust but not impossible. Didn’t need to jack anything up, just leave the straps on the shocks and you only have to compress them by hand a little more to get the lower bolt through.

Part number below for non-factory lifted 2019+.

Immediately noticed a difference while taking the truck over some broken down railroad crossing. Rear end no longer wants to bounce sideways, even with the stiff NHT suspension and 22s. Good bang for the buck, plus one of my original shocks already had an oily film on it like she may have been letting go. I guess 14k miles is nearing the end of life for cheap GM shocks. ?

If you don’t mind me asking, what are they charging you for it?

Ended up being $1370+tax for the entire front - bumper, grill surround, head & fog lights, 18" section of the hood, & the door sills

Thank you. It's my RS3. It is on a very mild setup right now (APR Stage 1 E85 tune) with some very basic bolt ons and went 10.9 @ 127 on my one and only E85 pass. I have been daily driving it, but the fastest way to get tired of a project is to DD it. I am stoked to have a great truck that can also pull this thing around when I need to take it to a shop or the track. I won't tow enough to justify a diesel, but I also wasn't going to make the Tacoma mistake for a third time - I wanted something that could get it done out of the showroom.

One of the most under estimated cars out there! Hope to have one in the future. Too bad you're not on the west coast, I've heard Iroz motorports makes some above average builds on the MQB platform ?

Where would they all fit though? I each side of the recovery hook, that’s 2. Where are the other 2 mounted?

So Westin doesn’t make the relocation kits for these trucks. I heard magnets confuse the system, so I got some neodymium magnets and guerilla double sided tape, and I covered all four, disabled the whole system. I took the outside two off, and still disabled. I took all of them off and it works again. I covered the 2 center ones and disabled the system. It doesn’t turn on and vibrate my seat when I start the truck and I dont have to push the button. Not quite a fix, but got rid of the annoying aspect. I still have my backup camera, parking sensors are overrated anyway lol

Ordered icon extended travel front coil overs planning on raising the front 2.5” with icons UCA, ordered fabtech’s rear stealth mono tube shock that’s good for a 3” lift with a 2.25” block. Planning on a tall 34 and dropping from 20 to 18” wheels. Parts will be in Monday. Also have Borlas Atak catback with carbon fiber tips coming Monday as well. Should have it all done except tires next week.

Got a .50 cal billet polished antenna as well :)

Test fir for my OE 22” wheels. Numbers all said it’d work, but had to be sure. 
 

35x12.5 Ridge Grapplers are ordered and will be mounted next week.

 

ordered a 4” BDS lift, will install myself when it arrives and get these bad boys put on.
