I have a set of stock UCAs that I recently took off the truck. Send me a PM if you are interested.

To remove the fail master drop bracket lift (I assume that's what it is?), you'll need to do a little welding too I think. All in all it's rather involved compared to removing a spacer set or something.

It is still better than keeping that POS on though...DBs are bad news.

well first off im going to try to sell this rig and possibly pick up a stock tacoma.. there is a couple in my area that look like good candidates. If i cant sell it for what im asking then im going to take the time and take off the lift and weld in the 2nd crossmember in and hope its straight. doesnt seem like to much work just time and money i need UCAs and smaller tires.

I thought this over a bit. Here's what you do:

1. Remove supercharger.
2. Sell truck. That Fail Master lift is practically irreversible.
3. Buy another 1st gen Tacoma with a V6.
4. Install supercharger. Add other modifications as you want.
5. ????
6. Profit.

My understanding was that the TRD supercharger is entirely bolt on.

the superchargers for the first generation tacomas do not come with larger injectors. And if the previous owner did a trail master lift I doubt they put in bigger injectors. You can pull the SC off without any consquences
