    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    I don't know much about the trail master but I'm sure you would have to scrap the whole lift and buy a new drop-bracket lift.

    If I recall a certain *other* member with a trailmaster lift correctly... a crossmember gets removed in installation and therefore you cannot return to stock.

    Its very involved to go back to stock. You have to buy a new stock crossmember from toyota (500-800) dollars and get a shop to weld it back on if you cant weld yourself. Its pretty complicated, heres a link to look at that will give you a preview. Did you buy the truck with the DB lift?

    I think that the trailmaster lift got rid of the UCAs as well?

    Would you mind letting me know how much they charge you after your done? I have a buddy with an FJ with a 6'' and he is trying to go back to stock also. He bought it with the lift and then i introduced him into offroading and its to tall. Thanks!
