    Hello,

    New to this site but I'm on my 5th Yota. However, now I have some cash to fix stuff that "ain't broke" instead of wrenching to keep em on the road.

    Getting ready to throw the following on the truck tonight and tomorrow:

    -Front King Remote Resi coilovers 2.5
    -Total Chaos UCA
    -Rear King Remote Resi shocks 2.5
    -Icon add a leaf
    -Trd FJ Metallic color rims
    -265-75-16 or 285-75-16 BFG AT's

    Having a hard time deciding on tire size though. I'll be playing in the desert so the suspension will cycle hard but I want it to look beefy. Will have to trial and error the size at my local tire shop to figure it out.

    Got the front done. Coilovers are at factory setting which levels it out with the factory rear. Will put on the rear leaf & shocks when I have some time and adjust the coilovers to level it back out.

    What tires did you go with? Are those 265/75 on there? That's what I'd go with.

    Went with 265/75. 285's just seemed too big.

    It rides great, but the coilovers are shit for down travel and I can't even crank them to match the 1.5 lift in the back. I'd go with icon

    Sorry for the late reply... I hardly check this out anymore. I adjusted them this morning (7 turns passenger 9 turns driver) which got the pass level but I'm still 1/4 low on driver. This is to level out a 1.5 rear. I can say that the ride is definitely stiff as hell. The CO would bottom out over slow speed bumps on down travel and clunk before I raised them and I would bet money they're fully extended now. Took the sway bar off and that thing isn't needed the least bit.... Wish there was someone in East TN (lol) with the same setup and I could take a ride to see if mine were the defects pulled out of a bin to sell at Christmas high demand or something. Just wish the assembly had an extra inch of travel and 2" longer housing

    Considering taking the rear lift out and riding the fronts until the LT is a feasible option. Love the look, but I thrash on this 13 pretty hard. The hillbilly way is of the skinny pedal
