Hennessy's 2013 build at it again

As the pile of parts grow I realize i have a problem..
It all started with an 1988 Ford Ranger lifted 4" and cut up the fenders, then moved to a 1991 Toyota xtra cab, got hit by snow plow, so of course I needed Fiberglass bedsides and fenders, a long-travel suspension and more motor mods than I could count, headed to a 2000 Dodge Dakota lifted with a hemi swap.. blew the motor so back to toyota..
2013 TRD sport DC 4WD..

looking at about 3" of lift
now that I have the parts I still have to decide on wheels and tires..

Nice looking Truck, thanks for the deal on your factory parts.

If I had the $$$ and my wife wasn't so damn short, I would have loved to do something similar.

I tried a couple places, with little success, so I bit the bullit and called up 4wheel parts on South blvd, they did a suprisingly good job, so kudos.

Its a good 3" and a hair up from stock, I put a 3/4" spacer on top of the coilovers to keep the spring rate where I wanted. I did already cut the inner fender and some of the flare, beat back the pinch weld, by hardly any rubbing I mean on the body mount... the part I was not wanting to cut, but the more I read on the reason for the mount and its location I feel if i just dont get too out of hand it sould turn out great. I'll post a pic of the rub area later.
