I had them on a Jeep and they worked great. The problem on the Taco is that our shackles hang up instead of down = revolvers won't work.

But, there is a company called Armor Tech on here that makes a bolt-on shackle reversal kit for $100 (3/4 down the first post): http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/arm...duct-line.html

Put those on, then put the Revolvers on, then post pics of you flexing the crap out of the rear.

Umm....I actually bought a set for my jeep and never installed them.

Do some research....there are lots of pros/cons.

I WOULD NOT put them on a daily driver / street vehicle. The only way I'd put them on, is if you can LOCK THEM DOWN in a standard shackle configuration for street usage.

If you brake too hard or corner too hard - those things can open up and possibly cause a really serious accident. Also - while offroading when going down a steep grade, they can open up and possibly put the cab of your truck over your head. It's hard to explain.....

Again - I WOULD NOT put them on a street vehicle.

Honestly? They give you a lot of flex. Whoooppee..... Get yourself a rear locker and you won't need the extra flex.
