luckstrizzo89's slow but steady build

Hello everyone this is going to be my newbie introduction/build thread. Im new here so if I'm doing something wrong please let me know the site can be a bit confusing at first. I just want to say this website is awesome gave me great ideas and the write ups are fantastic
The truck started as a stock 2013 TRD Sport about a month ago......



This is what my truck looks like now
List of mods:

1 BHLM
2 Blacked out emblems
3 Procomp 7089 on procomp A/T 265/75r16
3 Maxtrac spindles
4 Icon stage 4 with tubular arms






So tomorrow ill be in stalling an icon stage 4 kit with tubular uppers and some maxtrac spindles...... took me 6 months and a LOT of thread lurking to pull this together. I'm super excited for the set up will post some buid pics in the morning wish me luck...

I have the same exact truck but it is still completely stock. I absolutely love the look of your truck. Is it lifted? I want mine to look as good as possible without having to lift it. Any suggestions?

Just got some new shoes for the truck, went with a little less aggressive tire for better DD feel..... so if someone is looking for some new 265/75/16 tires let me know!

I was skeptical about the 4" lift with the maxtrac but your ride looks great. did you do the icons in the rear or the front? how does it ride? stiffer or like factory?

Thanks for the compliment, I have the icons in the front and the rear with the front preload as low as possible for no lift from the coils just the spindles and the 1.5" ad a leaf in the rear and the truck drives great on and off the road
