Some Stock offroad


How she sits now


Stock Tires




Wish List;
TIRES!
Rock Sliders
tint

Installed lift in my garage by myself with the tools i had on hand besides the rented coil compressor from Autozone so I could put together the new coils and shocks. Build was pretty straight forward with the help of Tacoma World with the exception of putting the shock/coils in the front - by myself was an absolute pain in the.

Some trouble I had with the spacers

Thanks everyone , it's definitely a lot more fun and satisfying doing mods yourself. I'm looking forward to future improvement; sliders, bumpers, winch, lighting are all on the list. being as broke as I am there could be longer or shorter periods of time in between each one - oh well lol .

Tires by July!

With the 10mm lift enhancer, were you able to achieve a level ride or do you have slight rake? Read this on another thread:

1.75” front à 1.5” rear = slight rake
2.5” front à 2” rear = rake
2.5” front à 1.5” rear = level

... Wheelers Off Road says that with the 885 coils you'll get 1.75" and that the Dakar Leafs give you 2.75". Also, does this setup give you just under 3" or 3" exactly do you think? I'm not looking to go past that 3" barrier requiring new UCA's..


I am looking to go with the EXACT setup you have, I've been piecing it together over the past few weeks. Did you buy it all in a kit from somewhere or did you piece it all together?

Lot's of questions, I know.. Just want to get all the details right before I pull the trigger.

Hey man I'm honestly going to have to check for you, if you have not already found out what you needed to, i will try to get back to you sooner rather than later. I actually pieced it together i could not find a kit. Buuut http://www.wheelersoffroad.com/ will set you up with pretty much everything you need. Ill measure everything for you in the meantime, oh and i did not need new UCA', stock work just fine with no issues (although i would prefer to get some sturdier one's with more room.)

Also check out this build answered a lot of my original question's when putting together my set up.

I hope this response wasn't to belated. Good luck
