    Ok - I've done some searching here and Google. The only reasons I can find for chopping the cab mounts is for tire clearance- correct? or am I missing something here?

    Correct. 2nd gens and FJs have a cab mount that gets in the way (for some) when running larger tires. I don't remember it being an issue on 1st gens

    Ok. Thanks for clarifying that. I went out and checked mine and didn't see it being an issue for me. It would be really useful if there was a thread that was locked from general comments that was just one long list of suggested mods per vehicle type. It would probably cut down on some of the repetitive questions and help people know what they would most likely need to do to reach a certain build level. Just a suggestion.
