This is going to be a very mild build. I previously had a 2002 Tacoma which was built with All Pro suspension and armor. I loved that truck, but had to let it go when we had our daughter as I needed a back seat. I then built a Xterra which was nice until the transmission blew up 2 months ago.
So this leads me to this little gem. I want it to have great road manners and be able to handle mild/moderate trails. I pull a little pop up trailer that is fit with a spring over axle lift and ATs.
The day I bought it: New to me, 75K on the odometer.
First took off the step rails and mud flaps.
Relocated the broken trailer plug.
Then Bilstein 5100's with AAL.
New Hankook Dynapro 265/75/16.
Wanted some more storage, but didn't want a topper or tanneau cover, as I put bikes in the back quite a bit. Came up with this, very happy with the final product.
