My new lift, Wheels and tires.

3in spacer lift on the front, TSB ONLY on the rear, Pacer 185p 16x8 wheels, 265/75r16 Hankook ATM tires and I also painted the hood scoop black.
About 1in higher in front. Not sure I like that but will install a 1in block in the rear if it bothers me.
I LOVE THE RIDE. Yes I said that. I was really worried about not getting the upper control arms but I believe the ride is better.
Let me know what you guys think.

Have you had paintwork done on your drivers door? Pics 2 and 4 seem to show the color difference in the two doors.

Maybe its the light?

Nice truck anyway, I like the stance.

truck looks good. i was on the fence about hankooks, but ended up going with firestones. spacers can ride ok if you dont go offroad much. ive had mine for about 1.5 years with no complaints. but im fixing to upgrade to bilstein 5100s because my oem shocks are worn out

Looks good. It's your truck, so if you like the way it rides then good choice.

Paint work was easy. sanded with 320, then 600. 2 coats primer then light sand with 600 and 4 coats black.
Yes the door color is off a little. Truck was wrecked with 10k on it. Now has 60k. You cant really tell unless the sun hits it just right.

What spacer is this and how much did this lift? I had a spacer on my Tundra at first but I couldn't get it to align to factory specs so I took it off and installed a 6". Did you have problems with alignment?

Truck looks good, except for the scoop. I just don't understand why you painted the scoop? You paid to have the sport package with the color-matched mirrors, bumpers, and door handles-then you paint the scoop black. Just doesn't make sense to me.

Well I had a problem with the clear peeling on the scoop. Also I do love the sport package but after 4 years that is a LOT of blue. Just wanted to break it up a bit.

I think the scoop looks good. Kinda sets it apart a little. Besides, he likes it so who cares. The main point of the sport is to not have chrome everywhere!

Truck looks good except for that bro lean. You might concider instead of raising the rear with blocks lower the front with a smaller spacer. Have you looked at the cv boots since doing the lift to see how bad the ribs ride each other now?

Same reason people black out their white taco's.

Nice truck man. I like the black scoop! Now you need to black out your emblems

My only input...I would have turned the white letters in.
