The toyota dealer blew me off and sent me to discount tire. They wanted to replace with the same brand, but I asked if I could upgrade. They said yes and I would have to pay the difference. The sucky thing is that those dunlops were only $63. I only paid $311 for all new tires.

I did install the shocks by myself and I do not recommend it. I didn't have any directions so it was difficult. I winged it off the toytec installation on their website. I went to oreilley and loaned a spring compressor. That was the easy part. The hard part was getting the new assembly back in. I am very mechanically inclined and it took me 5.5hrs. If you try it have someone help you. And to answer concrete jedi the tires are quiet.

Looks good! Which DVD player is that? And can you post up some info about your front hitch (or point me to it if you've already posted it)? I've thought about doing one myself and wasn't sure how to mount it.

The DVD is a UV8 phase linear made by jensen. The reason I got that one is because you can bypass the parking brake switch and play it while you're driving. I paid $250 thanksgiving day at circuit city. I bought the hitch from jc whitney. It is a curt mfg. brand. I paid around $154 with a $40 coupon plus shipping. The hitch was an easy install, around 30 min.

Ignore that question! I found it on their site and it's custom made for the Tacoma... Must be something new because they didn't have anything like that when I looked last year.
