    Yesterday I put my lift on the truck after waiting for awhile to build up the nerve to do it myself. Came out good in my opinion wasnt as bad as I expected. 3inch revtek lift up front with 1inch diff drop and wheelers off road 1.5 aal. Spidertrax 1.25 wheel spacers for the stock wheels with 285/75/16 Mickey Thompson MTZ's. Hope yall like it. Sorry for pics being so large dont know how to fix it...

    The ride is kinda stiff. Its not bad at all to be a lifted truck but the smoothness of the Tacoma before makes it seem ruffer than what it is in my opinion. I got stock uca still. At 60 and 65 it wants to wander on the road but below 60 i cant tell it much. My problem is at 35-50 it wants to viberate to death. Not positive how to fix it. Had the tires speed balances up to 70mph and heaviest weight was 1.25.

    back to bone stock.
    the wandering will go away with an alignment.

    the vibes could be a myriad of things. shims in the rear, i'm guessing.

    Havent figured out what the next mod will be probably wheels after these get scratched up bad enough. Already have flowmaster 40 series with twin lines out the back. That was the first thing I did to it. Couldn't stand not being able to hear my truck run lol.
