    I am currently deployed to Iraq and scheduled to come back the beginning of next year. While here, I have saved a good amount and am planning on doing a full lontravel on my Taco. Before I get into everything, I want to post pics of 2 trucks to let you know I like what you have done and I am going to do a similar thing with my truck.

    I don't know if this guy is registered on your site but here is the PIC


    Your bumper looks outstanding. I am fabbing mine similar to yours.

    I am pretty sure the next guy is registered here since this is where I got the Photo.

    I love this bed cage and I am going to do my best to fab mine exactly the same way. Hope you won't be mad. It looks AWESOME.




    My plans other than that are to do the total chaos front LT kit with the 2.5 ext res shocks and the DMZ rear spring under conversion.

    I am thinking about going with 16" methods and 285 75 16 general grabber red letters. If not methods I like the 16" ATX chambers.

    The Black truck is in2nite (James). it's full Engage LT front & rear on 35's.

    As well, the TC kit runs an 8" shocks (not a Ext Travel if that's what you're referring too) & an option for an 8" Bypass shock.

    And the DMZ, can run a 2.5" 16" Shocks with a Bedcage.
