Thanks for posting these pics. I haven't found any of the Eibach lift kit installed online, you made me pull the trigger! What are the wheel specs? Using any spacers? That stance is badass.

No problem. The wheels are Method Racing MR502 17x8 ET 38. I'm running a 15mm spacer in the front and 20mm in the rear. The tires are Fallen Wildpeak A/T Trails 235/55/17.

Hey man! Love your car all around. With the lift and this wheel/tire setup, how close is it to rubbing?
I feel like that meaty fitment on stock ride height would also look good, but I'm assuming it'd rub like crazy huh? Lol.

Actually, it only rubs a little bit on the mud flaps at full lock. Other than that, no issues.

Awesome! Yeah I figured it’d be fine with the lift or maybe some minor rubbing like you said. But was curious about doing this setup on Stock height. But I’ll just get the 1” lift as well probably. How do the eibach springs feel versus stock? Do you have the stock struts too or did you upgrade?

Stock struts and it rides great. The stiffer springs help out a lot when I'm towing my teardrop camper. The rear doesn't sag at all.

Thanks a lot man! You have convinced me to pull the trigger as well as the other dude who mentioned that earlier on. :D

Hey, you have the best looking Kona I have seen so far. Nice ride!

I am looking for a similar light bar setup. Where did you get your mounting hardware? Did you run the cables down the exterior of the A pillar?

Thank you so much.

I used brackets for a 2016 Tacoma and mounted the to the inside of my roof rails. I did run the wires down the a pillar with some 3M1s f adhesive tape. C

Here are some pics of how the wiring is ran. I also added some driving light up front.
