Mitchell Rail Gear

Mitchell 1515 Rail Gear for Toyota 4-Runner provides the best fit for this vehicle because the front Rail Gear retracts toward the tires to accomplish a very high approach angle and ground clearance, the company says. The rear Rail Gear also folds up toward the rear tires and is positioned to clear the spare tires. With the spare tire in its normal position then the full cargo area is available. Enhancements that improve ground clearance and ride quality are high load capacity tires and stronger vehicle springs to prevent suspension sag.
