And the story of how it got there below.
This is my 2009 Tacoma Access cab SR5 2.7L 4wd. I purchased the truck new in Sept. 2008 in Fairbanks AK. Originally my plan was to just put better tires on it and call it good and get my 1972 Toyota FJ40 out of storage in New Mexico and focus on it again. That isn't how it worked out.....
I put a set of 245/75R16 studs that I got from a buddy for hauling his snow machine and rolled those through the winter in the spring I replaced them with a set of 235/85R16 BFG commercial traction for the summer on the stock suspension.
I then ended up taking a detail to work in Montana for the summer. I drove the truck down planning to pick up a lift and some new tires. What I didn't plan on was a hailstorm that came through one afternoon and hammered the truck.
So after the hailstorm I contacted insurance and got estimates replaced the windshield and then decided on putting the insurance check towards the principal on the loan and not repairing the dents. I then made a trip to the Denver area to ride bikes and get parts. I contacted toytec and ordered OME shocks N140S fronts N182 rears 886 coils and a top load spacer to get a full 3" and toytec add-a-leaf for the rear and picked it up. I did not have access to a shop or tools and had it installed at High Country 4x4 they do good work. Then a stop by 4 wheel parts to pick up some 255/85R16 BFG KM2's. A before shot and some after shots.
So I'll end this post here and work on it some more later seems more like a story than a build at this point.
