Check out my modification pics on PINTEREST

https://uk.pinterest.com/spokwa/landcruiser-prado-colorado-95/

Some of my custom mods inc

6"body lift

4"suspension lift( 2" rancho coil and strut lift with 2" strut top spacers and 4" extra on rear coils)

removed and customised body mounts behind front wheels that would foul with the 37" tyres

cut body seams and wheel arches behind front wheels for the above reason

custom twin steering damper to stop any potential wheel wobble

custom twin rear handbrake cable as original single cable with slave wire tend to pull unevenly

massive front mounted intercooler to maximise cold air as apposed to the original top of the engine type

turbo bleed valve set to 13psi from 10psi as standard

EGR blanked off

probably a few other bits i've forgotten and do have a roof rack and ladder to refit and a empty hard spare wheel cover i am customising to fit a door to and use for storing ropes and bits  (not my idea but a lot of artic trucs have this mod as they def cant carry a 44" spare on the back door)

Hello, yes it has a full rancho 2"suspension lift alround including 2" taller rear coil springs.

I had to fit the extra 2" front strut spacers due to only gaining about an inch of front lift once the suspension had settled from a few bumpy drives out.

It now sits fairly level looking from the side with about half inch lower at the front.

cheers James

Awesome looking truck. Where did you get the rancho kit from? And how much was it if you don't mind me asking?

PostPosted: Tue Aug 11, 2015 7:47    Post subject: Rancho suspension Reply with quote

Hello i got the complete kit from roughtrax4x4.com for about 450 which included having the front coils and shocks assembled by them so i didnt have to worry about trying to compress the coil springs to fit them to the front shocks, came as a complete unit which was so much easier to fit.

I had a quick look and they are doing a monroe kit 450 and a peddlers kit 550 these prices are assembled as mentioned above , they are cheaper if you want to tackle the front shocks and springs yourself.

Couldnt find the rancho stuff but peddlers are a very good quality make.

hope this helps

thanks

James
