Thought I'd start a new thread for vehicles other than Rovers that suck. For your consideration is this 4Runner.

Haha! Those fender flares are planter bed dividers! Stupidly resourceful local boyz! You'll have no shortage of material to post from Oahu!

Here's one from last year that I couldn't help but document! At least they had good taste in tools.

Oh, yes. Those are purpose built, while these are anything but.

That 4 runner has more geometry in its rear suspension than a college calc class.

I think the Toyota fender extenders came from the garden department at Home Depot.

This looks like my sister's old YJ. She had 36's with ridiculous fender flares as her DD.

Boosts... the one LR rim I have yet to rock on a truck. That and the RRC types, twr and three spoke. The three spokes are my favorite Jeff. How could you put boosts on something when I know you have at least four...teen sets of three spokes.
