In Feb of 09 I bought this TRD-OffRoad with the 4.0L and 6speed transmission; I swear this truck felt like a rocket ship compared to what I was used to.
I ended up doing what most do with an initial lift and had the Bilstein 5100's installed by SoCal suspension. I also bought a set of Camburg balljoint UCA's for additonal wheel travel and proper caster angles as the future plan was to run a 285 series tire. Around this time I dropped the truck off at the Toyota dealership for the TSB add a leaf.
I originally ordered Hankook Dyanpro ATM RF10's, but Discount tire accidently ordered the wrong size so they let me roll around on Nitto TG's for a week until the Hankooks arrived.
I had some major rubbing so I dropped it off at Demello Offroad and had the rear body mount chopped to clear the tires. I also banged the stock skid plate while testing the Nitto's and Bilstein shocks so I drove to AllPro offroad in Hemet and picked up their IFS plate
After driving to Hemet to pick up the skid plate and driving to Corona to chop the body mount, the Hankooks arrived!
I ran the truck around like this for a while, and did some small DIY mods.
I soon discovered that my Bilstein shocks were not up to the abuse, so I bought a used set of Sway-a-way RaceRunner 2.5 shocks and had them rebuilt by Sonny at Downsouth motorsports.
This thing really gets used..
As of today: Added satoshi color match grill + hood scoop, DSM UCA's, and spintech muffler.
