    Tokicos are the OEM shocks on the 1st gen double cabs, so the PO only installed a spacer/block lift on the original shocks.

    Here's the very short of it (assuming no labor costs that you install yourself):

    <$1000: Bilstein 4600 or 5100 shocks and your choice of front coil springs / rear leaf springs with desire lift (0-3")
    ~$1200: Old Man Emu (OME - not to be confused with Original Equipment Manufacturer OEM) - 2-3" lift

    For your general, vague description of use, I don't recommend:
    >$2500: Fox/Icon/ADS/Dobinson/etc coilovers up front, remote reservoirs, long travel, et al.

    Does Anyone tried a 2013 DC short bed Colorado Camp Shell a into a Double Cab taco ?:confused:

    I got tired of AT tires , they look good but were noisy , no good for MPG, no smooth ride, more like a riding a Jeep... kind of killing kidneys... i enjoyed them 40,000 miles, could go for many more ( keller safari BF goodrich) but dealer check them and big chucks of the tires worn/chop , one must to be replaced , loosing air puncture next to edge, so got replaced by Cooper Evolution HD $85 each at discount tire and some wheels at the dealership $98 install and balanced ...

    what a difference... day and night !!!
    Retuning from El Paso 80 miles per hour gave me 16.45 mpg and the ride is super smooth now :cheers:
