    Made some limb risers

    Perfect day to give some attention to the 4runner. Decided to go up to Lowe's and do a little hardware shopping and come up with some limb risers. Ended up painting it all black to blend it in, overall pretty happy with it! Cost a little under 50 bucks and 3 hours constructing it best.

    Coating all the pieces, in retrospect I should have done this last

    Not much compared to the mudders, roof rack, ARB and all the extra weight.

    I like what they do, but would want a quick release set so they can be quickly removed. Personally, not wild about the big u-bolts up front - couldn't you find a big enough hose clamp like on the roof rack?

    Check out waytek.com - I think they have big sizes of those.

    Each side disconnects within a minute, twist of the turnbuckle then removing the pin of the shackle. And the u bolts are temporary, I'm looking for a larger p shape clamp like you're talking about, Lowe's didn't have anything bigger. May just find a new source because the clamps on top aren't that strong, but maybe they're strong enough..only one way to find out for sure. I also need to find some plastidip in aerosol form, neither Lowe's nor Advance had it

    I'll check that link in a bit thanks

    FWIW, the first time you go out and use them, watch for possibly snagging on your rear ladder. I've seen this issue recently on a 100 series equipped with the ladder and limb risers where the branch/limb had enough wind up that it slapped down just past the roof rack and damaged the roof.

    Not to mention the snorkel.

    Actually I&#39;ve been thinking about this. The clamps are no good. I&#39;d drill a hole and put a nutsert or rivnut in there. It would be really clean and not mess up the paint on the bumper from clamping or welding on a mount.

    I guess there is a product called a Jack Nut as well. The backside is a bit different than the rivnuts I&#39;ve used.

    *If you mean putting the nut-sert into the front bumper hoops, then yes, it's been done and works great. Jack-nuts are worthless pieces of crap best relegated to use like a molly-bolt. They simply do not have the strength in their design (splayed legs versus compacted sleeve) to handle anything more than a casual mount setup.
