Getting the Wheeling Fever
i'm looking for a lift kit for my buddy and the only thing i can find is a 1.25 OME and its kind of steep considering how much lift you get

does nobody else make one?

I've heard TJM makes springs that fit the rav as well. One guy mentions them on his Rav

http://rav4world.com/gallery/gallery3text/f350.html



Here's the OME setup

Really though, why would you want to lift it? When it comes down to it, the Rav is just an AWD car.

I have a 96 Rav myself.

its one of my friends. and since he doesnt have enough money to go finance something else, he as a rav.

he probably even likes it.

and since its 4wd he wants to go up in the mountains with us.

it would be more than capable of going anywhere that we go.


and Thanks for the links. mucho helpfull

Nothing wrong with a Rav-4. It's an excellent vehicle. But it's just a car. It lacks a lot of things that would keep me from taking it on a real 4wheeling trip. Those thing being mainly, lack of skid plates, (motor and tranny oil pans are right in harms way) no low gear, and the suspension is not very heavy duty. It's basically an AWD Camry.


You cant even call it 4wd really. It's AWD. It has a center diff that, on normal driving conditions, puts all the power to the front wheels. When it detects wheel slippage in the front, it transfers some power to the rear. Unlike a real 4x4 truck where you can lock the front and rear wheels together for true 4wd all the time.

I'd like to show that even though they probably had a good time (up to a certain point with their RAV4... it goes to show that with 1.65" taller tires PLUS a 3" lift... having too much FUN off road with a RAV4 (and any other vehicle) can lead to problems. - Happy RAVin' - Kelly Smith"

Old thread, but I've got an OME system up for sale - included is new bump stops. First Rav 4.2 (2nd gen) - $450 + shipping.. That's about 1/2 price. It was pulled a little after 1k miles when the vehicle was sold.
