    I have finally finished installing my suspension. It took forever to get time and some help but it's done now thankfully. Let me know what you guys think. Sorry about the new pics, phones don't take that good of pics obviously plus I haven't washed my truck in a while.

    1/4 spacers (going to upgrade to spidertrax when I get more $)

    drakar 2.25 leaf pack

    longer U-bolts

    I still have to install the steering rack bushing kit and the anti sway kit. I'll be painting the emblem and chrome piece surround the grill, black of course. After that I'm thinking about getting some rhino-liner on the bumpers.

    Oh yeah, got everything from wheeler's off road. They were great and more specifically Dan was spot on when it came to the lift height and rake estimates. I can't say enough about him and the rest of the people at wheeler.

    thanks for the comments, I'm mighty proud of my taco.

    The tires are 265/75/16, got them at walmart installed and everything for $800 out the door. You can't tell from the pics of course but before the lift it was a pretty tight fit. The tires took up most of the front wheel well and rubbed everytime I had to make a tight turn. They rubbed on the frame and on the bolts holding on the mud flaps.

    Since installing the lift I have over 2in up front and I think close to 2.5 in the back (I prefer a little rake). I didn't measure before and after so I don't have the exact gains. I was just happy to not feel like my truck was swishing back and forth everytime I took a turn, and of course I now can take a turn with out it turning into at least a 3 point turn.
