    Hey Sarah,Your trucks looking great, now all you need is a TRD supercharger! Trust me,
    the Trd supercharged will be the most exciting upgrade you can do, except for moving to Denver, if you made it here to Denver? You can add the supergrip smaller pulley (100 bucks) that adds 30 exta horses with no mods, best bang for your buck hands down! Then you need to get ready for ice racing in Georgetown just outside of Denver and maybe get some skiing in. :)

    My plan was to move to Denver but I landed a good job in Scottsdale AZ right before I was getting ready to go up there and look for a house. I still plan on moving just not at the moment, but I do go up to CO and WY to snowboard every year! I would love a turbocharger bit not really in the budget at the moment lol. Now ice racing sounds awesome. I may have to come up after the new year and check that out!

    Those were taken out in New river close to table Mesa. We actually went out to table Mesa last weekend and it was awesome. I have some pictures to put up shortly.

    Love your truck! I don't know how I am just now seeing your build lol definitely inspiration for my tacoma, go 1st gen double cab black trucks! Just got my king coils too but didn't get the extended for aftermarket USA's. Did you have to extend them for yours?

    Are you talking about new UCA s ? I got new ones shortly after installing the coilovers because I couldnt extend them any further without them. Stock didn't allow enough room to be able to go up higher without ruining other components of my suspension.

    Hi Sarah, Ok Im new to the coilcover process, they look great on your truck, so my question, can you add king coilovers to a stock tacoma without adding a lift kit?
    If so What about the rear? The coilovers adjust if you want to lift the front abit correct?
    What about the rear then, Does king sell rear shocks that go with the front that kings
    That have more lift to match the front lift without adding a lift kit. I want my truck level but dont want my truck raised up to much. The stock trd springs and shocks that I put in years ago just dont cut it and seem
    To bottom out all the time.

    Hey, so the coilovers are the lift kit. I started out with my stock suspension. And took that off and replaced it with the king coilovers. At the moment mine are only an inch high but have the ability to go up another 2". As for the rear, king does sell shocks for the rear. There are so many options that you could go with. Currently I am running stock leaves that I had re-arched and fabtech extended shocks but I am going to get a new leave pack from Wheelers and the king bypass shocks and adjust the front all the way up. Hope that helps.

    Anyone have any opinions on exhausts? I know it will be a Magnaflow, but I am torn between the 14 and 18. From all my searches here, I have found that the 14 is significantly louder than the 18, but the 18 has a lower tone and is not so 'ricey'. I am looking for something that makes my truck sound louder, but not to the point where my neighbors complain (I leave for work at 4:30am). I just don't want to go with the 18 and then replace it with the 14 shortly after because it wasn't loud enough or vise versa. Thoughts?

    Ok thanks thats what I was thinking but was not sure, the one photo of your truck
    Infront of your house shows the back end sitting much lower than the front. Im guessing
    thats how it would look with the coilpacks added and not addressing the rear springs or shocks?

    That's correct. I had just finished the front end at that time. Once I rearched the rear leaves it sat level. I highly recommend new leaves rather than fixing the stock ones...it doesn't last long and is close to the price of new ones.
