That being said, the truck is new and I won't be doing anything too crazy

By the way thanks for the help figuring this stuff out. This is my first Tacoma and I want to do it right.
Based on that, I would say get coilovers that are rebuildable as opposed to the Toytec's. Toytec's use a Bilstein 5100 shock. Once they are blown, time for new shocks. King, Fox, and Icon all make OEM replacement coilovers that are rebuildable and revalvable. Unless you plan on hitting dunes for long periods of time, then there's no need for remote resevoirs. That would save you a couple hundred bucks.

Once you bring the coilovers up above 2.5" there's a chance of not being able to get alignment caster set into spec which is why a lot of people run aftermarket UCA's as well.

As for the rear, you'd probably be content with a standard AAL and Bilstein 5100's or 5150's.

As far as vendors, I'd sugguest you call Downsouth Motorsports. Talk to Marco and tell him you're a TW member and what you are looking for. He'll be able to help you out both with suggestions and products. TW members get an additional 5% discount. They are in CA so you pay sales tax, but it's free shipping on all thier shit. Wheelers Offroad is also a good vendor, out of state, that sells Icon's.

If you're not opposed to used stuff, pretty good deal here. I'm sure you could make him a great offer on everything:

Hey Rich,

I'll be going to Jamboree. I'll either be cutting out of work early or taking the whole day off on Friday. MartyMcfly lives up in your neighborhood. He's going too.

Also, I have a 2011 Yamaha Raptor 700. I wonder if I need some sort of sticker or registration for that thing...

what you will need... 2 whip flags (one on the quad one on your truck) 10 dollars a night for camping or 5 for a day pass. Rangers dont usually check stickers on your bikes, as long as you have a whip flag they dont bother you.

Pictures finally

Went to Old Coast RD today. For those of you that don't know that is near Big Sur off of HWY 1. It's a pretty easy trail that is about 10 miles long. Took the wife, baby, and parents from Colorado.
