Like most said, it depends on your application. For most of us the ones without the resi will do fine. Unless you are a person that likes to run long in the desert where your shocks will have to work more then resi will help a lot. You are a prerunner so I am assuming you like the desert more than trails. So resi's might be worth it for you.

With that being said I am getting Kings with Resi's.

What are you looking to get?

Contact Sonny at Downsouth Motorsports. He can give you a better deal. He also ships for free I believe. He is a vendor her on TW.

i hear ya on that...

just dont go alone...

best way to go though is...

1. go with other rigs with some experience. in the event you do break something, you have the mechanical support of others to help you get out.

2. run with some folks who are chill and won't leave you behind once out there if you can't keep up.

3. don't be too nervous about trying it out. the older gen tacos are very capable and strong, just do it.

PM me for more tips and info...

you should cruise out to our december 18 weekend run in Barstow... you can park your truck at camp and jump in someone's truck... you can try your truck out too and have some fun...
