I like the sound of what you have planned. Get a build thread started!I installed the Old man Emu Lift Kit on my 4wd 1999 4.1 and looks great, pictures to follow.
1 ea - 1996-2000 Toyota RAV4 Black Grille Bumper Guards Brush Bull Push Crash Bar (ChromekingUSA an eBay store)
1 ea - K&N 57-0315 57i High Performance International Intake Kit (amazon.com)
1 ea - Curt Manufacturing 13524 Class III Receiver (amazon.com)
1 ea - Old man Emu Lift Kit (doesn't include front struts)(Toyota Rav4 lift kits, suspension, fender flares, part & accessories at the lowest prices)
1 ea - Daystar KT09105BK Comfort Ride 1" Front Strut Spacer Kit (note not for RAV4 but it works with a little effort) (amazon.com)
2 ea - Monroe 903995 Strut-Mate Strut Mounting Kit (amazon.com) You should add these to any strut replacement.
1 ea - Gabriel G56631 Ultra Gas Strut (amazon.com)
1 ea - Gabriel G56632 Ultra Gas Strut (amazon.com)
5 ea - Rims 16x7.5 Anthracite w/Mach Lip American Racing Razor (tirerack.com)
5 ea - Tires - 235/75R16 Firestone Destination A/T (tirerack.com)(these tires are 30" tall and caused some rubbing issues that I had to repair with the judicious use of a hammer to the raised areas at the rear of the front fender wells and by using the following wheel spacers.)
2 sets - 25mm (1") 5x114.3 Hubcentric Wheel Spacers (amazon.com)
2 sets - Gorilla Automotive 21133HT Small Diameter Acorn Chrome 5 Lug Kit (12mm x 1.50 Thread Size) Pack Of 20 (needed some for the spare)(local purchase)
1 ea - BAFX Products (TM) - PIC18F2480 Bluetooth OBD2 scan tool - For check engine light and other diagnostics - Android compatible (amazon.com) Can be used in other vehicles.
A word of advice; the largest tires that you can get under it with this lift kit are 29 inches and maybe they won't rub, 30" tires rub harshly and require some vehicle modification (wish someone had mentioned that :wall).
The tire/rim fits fine on the rear tire rack, no spacer or mod needed.
Things to come:
1 ea - Roadmaster 1142-3 XL Tow Bar Base Plate Bracket Toyota (this is for flat towing the RAV4 behind my RV see Toyota Technical Service Bulletin AX001-00)(American RV Company an eBay store)

Either a forest green paint job or a camo vehicle wrap
Paint the bumper covers, fender flares, and side panels
A roof rack
Replace front rotors and calipers
Rear disc brakes project
Custom skid plates to protect gas tank, engine, and tranny. Too bad no one makes them, but I know a fabricator that can do it.
Hi Coupi, could you please give us some details on your lift? It seems substantially higher than the OME setup which is ideally what I'd like to go for.Not OME, but this 2" lift with brand new shocks and springs aswell, overall lift (due to sagged springs) was about 3 1/4" lift from when I first bought it. On stock 215/70 tyres
It's a 2" lift spacer kit front and rear, along with brand new stock height springs, as my springs had sagged a fair bit. Has equated to over 3" liftHi Coupi, could you please give us some details on your lift? It seems substantially higher than the OME setup which is ideally what I'd like to go for.
Thank you for your help and nice rig!
