Lighting the Way with Baja Designs

First up, the lighting. We’re talking a whopping 70,000 lumens, all thanks to Baja Designs. The ONX bar is seamlessly integrated into the grill. And just beneath the headlights? More Baja Designs brilliance with the S1s, Squadron Pros, and XL80s.

Custom-crafted at our shop, the headlights even boast the DuroBumps logo, engraved into a Morimoto D2S 5.0 projector. And for that extra flair? RGB demon eyes, are perfect for those parking lot meets.

Winch and Custom Front Bumper

The winch is a beast – a Warn Zeon 12K with electronic disengagement. This allows for a sleek integration into my one-of-a-kind front bumper by Tommy Gun Fab. We’ve optimized the approach angle by removing about four inches from the frame rail. The bumper design is unique, mirroring the rear bumper, and has an integrated skid plate.

Suspension Mastery

Suspension-wise, we trust Total Chaos. The rig sports factory-width upper and lower control arms from them. Add in shocks from ADS, a three-tube overlapping bypass, and a 2.5-inch coilover shock, and you’ve got a setup ready for any challenge.

And of course, the signature DuroBumps bump stops. Curtis’ 4Runner features tandem DuroBumps, handling up to 3,000 pounds of compression load.

Rear Setup and Performance

The rear boasts Baja Design S2 Pros for backup lights and an RTL light for enhanced visibility. Performance-wise, we’re talking Harrop E-Lockers on both the front and rear, re-geared to 529s for those beefy 35-inch tires.

A Fresh Look and Feel

Having been with me for about 15 years, this 4Runner has seen its days. But now, it sports a fresh coat of paint, thanks to Sean at Slickshot Paint. Inside, we’ve revamped everything – sound deadening, new carpet, new seats, all while preserving that beloved OEM look.
