Total Chaos 3.5" Long Travel Questions?

Hello,

So I bought the Total Chaos 3.5" Long Travel kit used for my 2007 Tacoma and I'm wondering what else I need before I put them on.








This is what I came up with.
-Bump Stops
-Limit Straps
-Fiberglass Fenders
-Extended brake lines
Is there anything else? or stuff I don't need?


Thank you.

congrats! Get spindle gussets for sure... Alignment cam tab gussets and shock tower gussets would also be good if ya want.
Also looks like you might need lower uniballs for your lower control arms but i'm not sure

Do not go without all three of the gussets (spindle, cams and shock tower). You will break, bend or crack something.

Are you 4x4? If so you need the longer lower shock ends for the Fox's

lol don't know 100% yet. I'd like to get a bed cage, but still have a functional truck bed other than that I don't know.
Going to concentrate on the fronts for now.

Make sure the spindle bolts come with the lower uniball. They're shorter than stock needs upper spindle bolt hardware too .

Little high but screw it . Just get what you need and install it and enjoy it. The replacement stuff is pricey.

Yeah, I just thought it came with everything and seemed like a good price if I could just bolt on and take it to get alignment.
He just sent me pictures of it on the truck then these pictures before he was shipped it.
I still haven't gotten them yet. I should get them on Monday 5/19/2014. I'll call him after I get them and maybe he can mail the rest of the stuff if he has them.

Just a little update. I got my used Total Chaos 3.5 Long Travel kit at my house today and contacted the seller. He's sending the rest of the hardware I need to install it. phew.
I give him alot of respect for not just blowing me off when I texted him. Since he already had the money and shipped 2 boxes already.





In the baggie on the top left of the 2nd picture is the
-Extended brake lines
-Tie rod extensions
-Lower uniballs

He's going to send me the Limit Straps and the upper spindle hardware to connect the upper A-arm and upper spindle.
I'm Stoked!!!
