Lift is done! Mahalo for everyone's help!

Just completed one of the final mods to the Tacoma. The installation of my 6" Rough Country lift with 2.0 Fox coilovers. Total lift ended up being 7" front and 4.5" rear. I am going to add an AAL soon because I am currently rocking the California Baja style with the front being so much higher than the rear. I still have a couple of other of things that I would like to add, but it's time to take it easy for a little while. I want to send out a HUGE MAHALO for all of the veterans on here that provided tons of input throughout the build and also for the support that everyone has given me over the past two months. I am posting a pic of what she looks like today and I will create a build page soon with a link in my signature. Again, thanks and Aloha to you all!

Here's a pic from last night after the installation. I almost slept in the bed of the truck, but my wife said that I would have to stay there every night for the rest of the week.

Thanks Chris! I picked my roof racks up for $334 new here in Hawaii. After I installed them, I saw a used set on Craig's list for $250!

Many, many, many mahalos my braddahs! If it weren't for this site I would still be second guessing and searching for answers. Then again, I would be thousands of dollars richer, too! As far as loading the surf boards, we are going out tomorrow morning so I will post pics and let you guys know how comical it looked trying to load a 11' board on a truck that's 7 feet high. Again, thanks to you all for your guidance, knowledge and friendship. Aloha!

Mahalo for getting me in touch with OCTaco, but like I posted before I am going to have to wait for my allowance from Mama. Besides, I am surprised on how much travel I still have with the stock lines and extension brackets. I will probably replace the lines when I get back from deployment this summer.

Thanks Brian, you too! My wife drove it to the Hale Koa beach across the flight line and took a ton of pictures. This one was with her phone and after she edits her camera shots, I will post it in my pictures. This side of MCBH has an awesome back drop, Aloha!
