Building a BigToy

I purchased this 08 Tacoma in Sept., ordered the parts in Oct., and built it in Nov. I want to give a big Mahalo to Kaina over at 4 Wheel parts Hawaii. Everything went smoothly, and all the parts came in with no problems at all. He even gave me free shipping to the Big Island.
I put on a Fabtech 6" Dirt Logic coilover lift that rides better than stock (IMO). I added a 3" bodylift to be able to clear the 35X12.5 Mickey Thompson's wrapped around 17X9 Procomp wheels. With some minor trimming it has good clearance, and off roads well!

I'm not sure of the exact gas mileage, but it is less than before I lifted the truck. Its worth it though.

O I love it for sure. I guess I need to find a little cheap beater to drive back and forth to work so I can do more of what I want to my truck. It's about 70 miles one way, sux.
