Who parked this sweet Taco next to mine in Carrollton?

Ran to Albertsons and when I came out, I saw this backed in next to me. Is this anyone on here? Man it makes me want to keep modding. Obviously mine is the silver one.

That is Barbra from TRDparts4u. Pretty sweet truck. Front and rear lockers, alluminum skid, armor and all that.

Thanks. I figured someone knew whose it was. Makes sense that it was a rolling billboard. It sure as hell makes me want to go get some armor and lift mine up more than the 5100s.

I really want the roof rack. It mounts to the factory location so no drilling requires. I just need to measure my truck to make sure it will still fit in the parking garage at work.

PS: I'm in the Carrolton/Addison area too so if you see a speedway blue double cab sport it's probably me.

Did you achieve the lift on your truck with just the 5100 bilsteins? or are there other parts involved? Im not looking to lift mine very much if at all but have been wanting to change stock shocks out. original shocks are awful.

If you're talking about mine, yes. I have 5100s set in the middle setting. Seems like it is 1.75". The rear is still stock. Other than that, my suspension is stock.

I guess that the bilstein 5100 is the 1st option in shocks. Seems alot are using them. I think I will give them a shot. Did you install yourself or have a shop put on fronts? I have a friend with a wall mounted coil spring compressor so im just gonna go over to his shop on a weekend and give it a shot. Thanks for input.

Well it's cheap and it works. I don't want to go full on 3" lift yet so this was a good first step. I can always add ToyTec coilovers over these later (and that is the plan).

I put them on myself. I just have the crappy 2 piece spring compressors like you can rent. They worked fine. These shocks do require more work than some coilover style shocks I have replaced before. Having to damn near remove the sway bar and disconnect the tie rods were more than I expected to get the shocks out, but it still was just a few hours in the garage. If you need any help, let me know.

Thanks! Paid $450 for the wheels at 4wheelparts and got the BFG AT KOs from a guy here for about $200 or so. They've got plenty of life left in them so it saved me some money.

Appreciate the link man, probably will pick some up myself! How long have you been running them so far?
