    Seriously though I’ve got wood drawer plans, 80/20 drawer plans like my wood drawer, and my new fancy drawer plans with parts lists. They are sized to fit under a tonneau and for 5’ beds. Hit me up if you want me to send them to you.

    I don’t really have plans for the fridge slide, it really is just angle iron welded together with aluminum riveted to the bottom. I used two C channel guides that are meant for table saws and anchored them to the bed. 1/4” t slot nuts hold the slide in when you extend it. My fridge just barely clears the tonneau so I couldn’t use a standard fridge slide. I like it though cuz it’s long and I put gear in front of the fridge.

    @Hookgrip

    So you're looking to do
    OME shocks and coils in front
    OME shocks in back
    AALs in the rear

    Correct?

    Where are you planning to purchase from?

    In my opinion the trim packer isn't worth the money, you'll spend a lot of time wondering if it even did anything.

    That's who I was going to recommend too, they valve the nitrochargers for a softer ride. That's what I run now and they are night and day from the standard socks.

    Yup they have great customer service too. I once paid for expedited shipping because i was in a pinch and needed the parts bad. I got a call the next day saying that I would get the parts the same day for the standard shipping as the expedited and was offered a refund.

    A+

    Sounds like Wheeler's it is based on all the reviews!

    Still an FNG when it comes to building out a tacoma. I had a Gen 2 from 2009-2017 but kept it stock. From what I read the trim packer is supposed to help with Taco lean? Driver side is slightly lower than passenger side, correct?

    I just assumed get the kit as it would have all the parts I need. Not trying to build a rock crawler (yet??), but simply get a few more inches of clearance and keep my back end from bottoming out when loaded up with gear. Plan to hit the road in July until late November to explore the Western US backcountry.

    I don't think you can go "wrong" with the trim packer. Some people use them, some don't. For the price you pay for it, I'd say get it.

    For what you seem to be looking to do with your truck, I think the parts you've got planned will be a good way to go. Let me know when you get them and we'll schedule up a mod day... I know @Blue Canary is itching to do his lift too.

    TW lifts specifically?

    @Uphillshunter ... twice
    @Sharkfrog
    @roguegs
    @510to209Taco
    @Pella ... 1 and a half times
    @TacoJohn4x4
    @Papadave418
    @Motofox
    @essjay

    I think that's it for TW specific. (Don't think I forgot anyone)

    Had help on all of them though... didn't do it by myself... and really only helped a little on a couple of them while I was busy working on other trucks at the same time.

    Also lifted a 1st gen, for a friend, way back in 04 (maybe even before there was a Tacomaworld lol)
