You're in Laramie? Nice! We need more UW members. We need to get a meet n greet setup with 45acp! Pm me sometime. And it looks like you're a golfer, wanna teach me how this summer? Haha.

Dude, your truck looks amazing. I remember when you made that thread about rolling it 7 days after buying it! i felt so bad for you. Glad to see it went from sad to beast in so little time. How much lift did you get exactly from your suspension upgrades? How's the handling without UCAs? The duratracs look awesome, i'm surprised they're 12.5 wide. usually i think 12.5s look too wide but those look very proportional. Congrats once again on the truck.

Hey thanks man! I got about 3.33" in the front, and about 4.25" in the rear. I can't tell any handling characteristics w/ the UCA's, they're still stock but they Aligned just fine. And I like the 12.5's". Gives it a more aggressive look.

I like 'em so far, they have good droop with them. I don't know if I would really be able to tell a difference in the ride with them since my leafs are so stiff.

only difference is 5125s come in lots more lengths for lots of lift like the 4''+ he and i are getting

5150s have longer lengths as well but not as many choices and have the res for better cooling
Thanks for clarifying!

Oh, btw Monte you should see my audio thread and let me know what you think: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/aud...ml#post4394903

What does that mean lol? I don't know about a sub. I'm thinking I may just stick to the HU, maybe do some speakers down the road.

The pre outs are the RCA outputs that you use to plug into amps. Have only two pairs means you have and L/R Front and L/R Rear speaker Pre outs. If you have 3 sets you'd have L/R Front & Rear and Sub out. It just makes wiring WAY easier. No splicing.

Hahaha, now that it's winter (and was the same in the fall), I average about 11 mpg in town, and MAYBE 17.7 on the highway if I'm lucky...

Ah, gotcha. Well I doubt I'm gonna do subs anytime soon.

Goddamn, well im sure the 10.6 and 11 mpg is due in some part to being in 4x4 for the snow, but that's pretty crappy. I like my 16 city 20 highway right now. With my modest lift and frugality, i'll probably stick with the 265/75 duratracs.... I wish they came in 32 flat. that would be a nice compromise.
