I finally got my lift installed today. Took a little longer than I thought it would, but was a good day project. Only ran into a few snags. One was not having clear instructions from Toytec
on how to install the lift, but most of it was pretty self explanatory. As well as some good info on TacomaWorld.
The kit came with some 1/2" spacers so I didn't need to trim the skid plate at all which was good. Just bolted it on and had it sit over the existing tabs.
Make sure when installing the rear lift blocks, DO NOT install the shocks first, they will not let you drop the rear axle down low enough to install the blocks.
No trimming for the tires was required, just removed the forward mudflaps on the front wheel wells. They were catching when turning in reverse.
The front end seems to be fairly rigid over speed bumps and recoils very quickly making a bit of a clunk, even when going slow. Not sure if there's a fix, maybe lowering the snap ring on the front 5100's?. I'll have to drive it for awhile and really see how it rides.
