Cool Pringles808 2012 SW DCSB Build

Interior Mods:
Black Wet Okole Seat Covers
LED map lights and dome light

Lighting:
ijdmtoy.com Amber/White Switchbacks
5000k Foglights
5000k Retrofit Source Mini H1's with Gatlin Gun Shrouds
LED license plate lights

Suspension:
OME 885x Coils
Bilstein 5100's on all four set @ zero
toytec 2" add-a-leaf
LR/SPC Upper Control Arms

Exterior Mods:
nfab wheel to wheel nerf bars
5% tint in the rear, 20% in the front
debaged trunk, added black trd emblems to side doors
shorty antenna
color matched grill, door handles, mirrors and bumper
painted brake caliper black
BlackHeadlightMod
Roll-n-lock tonneau cover

Tires/wheels:
FN BFD's in Graphite Gray (18" x 9")
Goodyear Duratracs 275/65/18's

Absolutely got no vibes within 0-75mph after the lift and very happy. im averaging 16-19mpg with my driving habbits so no complaints.

debating on tinting the taillights and 3rd brake lights, and still need to add some sock monkey decals. other than that, i have no real plans on modding the truck any more. my girl is already threatening to kick me to the curb.

MAHALO to Dave H (S7ICKlVlAN) for answering alot of my questions and building a beautiful truck that not only myself, but others has cloned. Rod (Pupule Ulua) for doing the same, Dustin at FN WHEELS, Robert from headstrongoffroad.com and everyone else on here for the mods, tips and DIY's

These is how the truck look like the day after picking it up from the dealership. painted my off road wheels black, removed bed decal



Then, my cousin who does autobody and paint, helped me paint the mirrors, grill surround, door handles and bumpers









then sprayed some high quality clear coat



put them back on and they turned out great



Got my mini h1 hid's from retrofitsource.com and began the install and the BHLM. Followed the tutorials/DIY on here and it worked out great







ijdmtoy.com supplied the switchbacks and resistors. here's how i mounted the resistors.



tap into the wires there:



12/14/12
These bad boys came in. 18x9 BFD's in Graphite. Shoutout to Dustin and FN Wheels. Had them shipped parcel post from california and only took 14 days to the island. I didnt mind waiting due no one on the island not having any of the tires i wanted.



Fast forward and it looks like this now:

Truck looks SICK Bro!!! Quick question on your lift.....did you use any kind of spacer on top of the 885x's and what do you have your 5100's set at?? I have the same springs and rear aal from off my 08 Tacoma and want to put it on my 12 but wasn't sure if it would sit level. Thanks in advance. I will be doing my lift as soon as I can afford to purchase the 5100's!!!

WOW, really? I feel like you should still have about an inch more in the back?

I just looked at my springs and realized they are 884x's. Do you think I will get the same level stance if I set my 5100's at .85 instead of 0???

You'd probably be a little higher. the 885 just compensates for the weight difference, that difference in weight doesn't push the 885's down .85 of an inch. I'm going with the 885x and setting 5100's to .85" just cause I want to be almost flat. I don't like the backs to be up so high like dodges and fords have it.

I want my truck to sit perfectly level, I have a 2012 dcsb sport and already have the 884x's and the 2" aal. I am going to get the 5100's. What do I need to set them at to sit level???

I would either set the 5100's to .85 or use a top plate spacer which is .75". With a 2" aal you want your front to be between 3"-3.5". I'm at 1.75" in the front now and I sit level with nothing in the bed. When I stack the bed with a ton of weight it sags down a little. Double cabs are 2" higher in the back. But you don't want the front at 4" and the back at 2" cause the trucks aren't designed to "look" level at that height.

If I were you I would see if you could return the 884's for 885's because your a double cab. If not just set your 5100's to .85" and it'll look great. It'll also ride great!

I'm going with 885's, top plate spacer, and my 5100's at .85 for the front and 2" aal in the rear but thats because the bed of my truck hasn't seen much weight in it since I bought it so I believe it hangs up more than others. I also don't want to advise you into a lift that may look "bro-leanish" hah
