Hate to admit it but first time getting her a little dirty. After the yellow wire mod of course!

Hey man we have almost the exact same truck! I could not believe that I found someone who had 265 tires and a nice lift. I just think that the 285 tires would be too big for my truck to handle. Knowing that it's a 4 cyl. standard and everything. LOVE the truck and everything in it. It's my inspiration now. Lol and if this is asking too much you don't have to, but I just got 2 10' Kickers for my truck and I saw you built that box. I was wondering if you had the dimensions so I could build the same one. Thanks man!

One more question... Why do I get 19 mpg and you only get about 16?

Thanks for all the great compliments man! Would love to go with 285's someday but its just not practical for me right now. As far as the sub box i did not acualluy build it i bought it from here. http://www.supercrewsound.com/10tacoecconsole.html
Thats actually my video and truck they have on there web site. Great sub box. Only fits one 10in but they can make the box to the exact specs of your sub as far as air space and so on which make the sub sound so good. Two would just be to much when its so close to the driver. lol My MPG's on fuelly suck because of the rough winters up here in minnesota. I Let my truck idle to warm up for 20 min every morning and "testing" the 4wd in the snow doesn't help much. In the summer i get 19 in city and on longer highway rides i get around 21-25.

No problem dog. Thanks! And I'm getting some smoked Halo Spec-D head and tail lights so Ill send you some also when they come in in the next couple of days. And instead of the 2" add a leaf in the rear like you did yours, I might just do the 1.5" block cause Id rather my truck been level. Rather that lower in the front than the back. <---- Is that what you call "the taco lean"? but that exact opposite?

Front is Higher then back = bro lean
Rear is higher then back = rake
Passenger side is higher then driver side (due to gas tank) = taco lean

Your trucks gonna look good!
