Installed new brakes, tie rods, PRG Advanced lift kit (700lb springs, add a leaf, UCAs), ARB Deluxe Bumper, smitybuilt 10k synthetic winch...

Took me Friday, Saturday, and Sunday to get it done. Parts of it were tricky. Specifically the ARB bumper was difficult to install then once it was on the winch control box required some fabricating to solve the mounting problem. Also the bumper had some shipping damage...nothing warranting me returning it though!

Plus you can use it as a straight Bluetooth pass-through and just play music through it directly into your auxiliary port without opening the Alexa app.
Don't even need the Aux port, it connects via bluetooth to your phone and (if have a BT radio) phone to radio, no port needed, they just opened the skills building last week to Devs we should see some new Skills incoming...but to be hands free for radio, calls, weather, traffic and texts is a nice thing

My pro-4x on does BT phone calls, so this gives me Alexa and the ability to stream.

700lbs is nuts. What length did you get? Also I need to get fogs for my ARB. I didn’t get them with the bumper and I popped one side out not thinking my stock wouldn’t fit so now I have a goofy hole on one side haha. Pic for example.

"I got the kit here it says This kit offers from 1-3+ inches of lift in the front using an extended length Radflo 2.0 and PRG Xterra upper a-arms. The coilovers are made as long as possible to fit with the extra clearance provided from the new upper a-arms. The rear of this package uses our Deaver built 2-leaf AAL and an extended set of Bilstien 5125 rear shocks."

They are riding pretty nice for me, we added it up 264lbs of added weight on the front, that's the ARB Bumper and Winch. Soon there will be a hi-lift jack mounted on the bumper and a 2nd battery put under the hood. I'm also putting some lights on the bumper but they don't really add an weight to worry about. But that's about another 100lbs or so.

I ordered my fog lamps from Amazon, I got em' for 70 bucks. They aren't super bright or anything though... You should have left the plastic bit in there that came with the shroud!!

Ah. I’m assuming the springs are a 2.5 then. That makes more sense. My 2.5 extended travel radflos use a 3.0 650 spring.

Just read up on it. I use Tapatalk and they took the auto image size out of the current 8.4.X. Looks like it will be back on 8.5 for iOS users. I guess until then I won’t post the same 12 boring pictures over and over anymore haha.

Hey Tifun and Brooke, I have the same PRG set-up, just 650lb, and ARB bumper. I need tires next, what size are you running?
I’ve ran both 33” and 35” in multiple offsets on both a 16” and 17”. 33’s didn’t require me to do any trimming. The 35” did on the back side of the fender and the front stock bumper. The ARB has no fit issues with the 35’s.

285 on the stock 16”


315 on a 16”


285 on a 17” (current setup)


315 on a 17”


I’m an offset dork and spent too much time figuring them out for I like to call TS friendly offsets. If you want to know how something g may sit feel free to ask if you don’t know the answer.

Wow Tapatalk. Just wow. I just updated to 8.5.0 and now they have an image cap unless you go VIP. Not paying the VIP subscription lol. So the pics above are HUGE because those were the previous version. So. Yeah, sorry man my stuff is too big.

So you had 315s with just a 2.5 -3in lift? How was it offroad any issues? I thought you had to have at least 2in SL and a body lift to run 315s (35s)?
