Looks good gents.

Glad to see some carrying on.

To reiterate, Pritchett is not in the same league as Golden Spike/Gold Bar Rim/Poison Spider. If you thought those were hard, Pritchett will eat you.

They are stock width... which many believe is a No-No. I have shaved a-arms and a 1" spacer. They balance perfectly and work very well off road.

Spring over is for lift, mostly. Spring under prevents axle wrap, or helps anyways. They both have their benefits.

Trying to follow that particular 4Runner with its' driver when he's feeling his oats is very difficult to say the least. While following his sick arse, I've never seen the SUA present any sort of problem and with the center of gravity a tad lower, he has leaned that puppy over a little further than most would dare.

That "lemon" stayed in the fray to the very end. It just has to work a lot harder to stay up with the SAS 4Runners but nothing a couple $grand$ couldn't partially fix. You all should visit http://forum.ih8mud.com/ once in awhile so you could educate yourself in the wonders and greatness of the 80 compared to the puny 4Runner. If Steve goes to the shades of yellow color all will be golden.
