My Taco got some new rubbers

Over the weekend I installed BFG All Terrain T/A KO's 285/70/17 with a K5075B procomp 3" coil/strut & AAL lift.
Based on some threads i've read from a few years ago, this kit wasn't getting too many good reviews and I think it was all small things because they've had a few years to fix the issues and I can say I'm quite pleased with it. The price wasn't too bad in the $550 range from North Shore Offroad in Vancouver and free shipping.

Yes it's a bit stiffer than stock but still completely streetable and good for any added weight you may be carrying. The install was simple except for finding a spring compressor to fit between the tightly woven coils when compressed. I ended up using two of the kind that go inside the spring, one on either side and tightened them evenly...I think they're for Mcpherson suspension (not too sure).
And finally the pics.
One is of the truck with factory wheels and the last one is with the new rubber and lift.

I was playing around, trying to get the tire off the ground and checking out how much flex I had.
Can I put a vid up somehow? I was able to rock it with my hand
