He was in New Hampshire and sadly he sold it soon after completing that nice set up. Hasn't been seen back here since. :(

So I really dig the look of busabos’ build. But has anyone thought of the wear and tear all those mods will do to the front end? Steel wheels are considerably heavier than oem, adding the that the wheel spacers which make the steering require more pressure. So in the long run the steering rack gets shredded, power steering system failing, and wheel hubs failing from the increase in weight, and stress to the parts.
Don’t get me wrong I think it looks awesome, but there has to be some drawbacks to doing all of those mods.

Probably the reason WHY he sold it and went to a 4runner ..I would do the same ..the front end wear and tear is always an issue for a Vehicle Not designed to be lifted in the first place.

Yeah, rack and pinions aren’t designed to be under that much stress all the time. I wouldn’t be surprised if it just ate them up after a year or two. And steel wheels, and wheel spacers just make it that much harder. It looks sweet tho lol When I first started shopping for wheels and tires I stumbled on some pictures of his setup and Liked it. I used to own a lifted truck and it was a bad experience all over. Lifts eat up every front end part and makes a daily driver uncomfortable. He didn’t lift his, but it’s still a lot of stress to put on a Pilot. Hopefully he is happy with his 4 runner tho!

Those are the pro comp wheels from summit racing, I believe I remember that from reading his thread a few years ago

What spacers did you put on. I ordered some but they didn’t work on the wheel. Can’t seem to find the right ones.
I needed 1in spacers with those stupid steel wheels, these new Rotas were almost perfect fit but when I ran new brakes I needed a slight spacer with them. Ended up using the hub face from my old rotors and it made a great 5mm spacer. That's all I needed for these wheels and only on the front.

If they are then they have to be either the series 34 or 44 wheels, as none of the other pro comp's have that spoke pattern.

I'd look but I just don't have the time, I'm almost positive tho man he didn't spend that much on those wheels

A HD picture of the vehicle would help. They easily could be either the JSports or the pro comp wheels.
