Yeah, the extra hoop at the back is designed to keep stuff off the truck, but NOT be a kickout. I don't really like kickouts as they seem to just jam trucks up, and I've not seen them do any more protection than non-kickouts.

These sit up, with no bar underneath, so that when sliding over a rock, the truck will slide past, and the slider will guide the rock under the tire rather than around, and directly into the sidewall.

Also, while you can't see them very well, the back hoops are gusseted with 3/16 on the inside of the bend.

Wow! Looks great Isaac, talk about an upgrade from your previous design. Great lines man, I think you nailed the look and protection you were after!

Have you seen any of the soft top stuff coming out of Boulder? I just saw a can-back style soft top on a taco coming down the hill today.

That 4Runner is a shell of what it used to be, great job!

Got my rear deck finished most of the way. I still need to bolt down the tool box and add latches, but it is complete as well.

Rear deck area:





Area for recovery items located by the tail gate for ease of access when on the trail:



A storage area for fluids and the like:





View from behind the seats:



The front box is my tool box, which isn't finished yet.

The area right above that is for storing some spare parts, ie two CV's steering crap, belts, brake line, hubs, fuel line, etc...



Lastly, I finished my belly pan, but couldn't get very good pics of it.

It hangs down just under an inch below the frame:



3/16" plate with a checkerboard of tented angle welded to the back side for reinforcement. Super beefy.
