REDLYNER Racing Baby Hauler Chase Truck

I picked up an '08 WK Overland for the wife and we decided to add a few small mods to make it a little more capable. It's her daily driver, but it also needs to be able to follow my TJ (race rig) around the local wheeling spots. So now stage one of the Baby Chase Hauler is complete . I spent the weekend setting it up and I'm really pleased with how it turned out. This stage consisted of an RC 2" lift, RC 1 1/4" wheel spacers, 32" tires, and red painted calipers (for high speed). Still drives like stock (maybe a touch stiffer), but the wife loves it! And just like the TJ, we are already eye-balling the next round of upgrades . A wish list would look like a carbon fiber ram air hood, some black Racelines, window tint, an LED bar, and possibly a custom hidden winch project. First I have to sell all of the take-offs from the Tundra and WK (per the wife), then we'll see what comes next. Fun to have a blank canvass again.


Some shots of the weekend's work:

Before:






Getting it apart:


32x10.50r18 tires mounted up:


Nothing like stripping down the new car to the bones:


Spacers and lift:


Front on.... not my favorite thing to squeeeeeze in:


The wife insisted, so how could I argue???


Rear buttoned up, ready for tires:


Front finished as well:


And the After. I'm really pleased with it now:
