    Doug Thorley Long Tube Headers, Eclipse 6620 AVN GPS/DVD, K&N Drop-in Air Filter, Hose clamp mod, Redline Quick Lift Elites, Bilstein 5100's at .85, Firestone Ride Rite Air Bags, Weather Techs front and back, Bug Guard, and Factory Bull Bar, Wet Okole's up front, Bed Mat, LED interior lights, Fumoto Oil Valve
    I added the 1.5" Toytec AAL (Non TSB) with the 3* shims and Bilstein 5100's all around (1.75 up front). Turns out that the shims actually introduced drive line vibration, so I removed them tonight. I still have a very slight "hum" at about 20 mph, but it is 90% better. I may shim the carrier bearing this weekend. I am thinking that it is probably more likely to need the axle shims on a short bed Double Cab than the long bed for this mild of a lift. Just thought someone might benefit from my experience.

    Here are my shims in case you are interested or have a larger lift.
