Yeah, how many places need balloon tires like that to keep from falling through the "road" surface?

Not to mention if the taco's are anything like the Hilux Top Gear used, then the front suspension needs to be moved forward a few MM to allow the larger front fenders to clear the doors. Without moving everything forward they can't open the front doors.

Lot of work just for lift and bigger tires if you don't absolutely need it.

Oh, and I bet they have to change the brakes to fit 15" wheels.

Yeah, but it would still be cool if we had the option to get stuff like that... I would have loved to convert my rear to coils instead of having to buy custom built leafs and still have the shackle hanging down.... I know we can do it all here custom, but come on, if they have a kit and know what springs to use and all of that. It would just be nice.....

Thanks. I am really going to try and remember to take more pics. I usually go out and then go "Damn, I should have gotten out and taken some pics" the camera is on my phone, how hard can it be.....for me, it seems to be hard. But I always have lots of pics of everyone elses trucks or jeeps.
