    Finally pulled the trigger. I know I will get some pushback from you guys but, I went with a company called Low Range Off Road for my lift. http://www.lowrangeoffroad.com/tacoma.htm I read alot about them in the Tundra Forums and they get high reviews. Anyways, TPMS swap no issues, rides smooth, no vibes. Thought I'd throw some pics up for you guys (stock photo included). For those of you who helped me along the way with my questions...Thanks !!! and thanks to Chris Conk from Low Range.

    Makes me even more excited to get mine installed. I'm not a fan of the blacked out look but I think yours would look sweet with black badges and BHLM. All Black with nice chrome on the rims - that would be sweeeet.

    Sick rig man. :cool:

    The height of your lift looks perfect. Sure looks worth the price & effort. Can't wait to do mine.

    I was very surprised at the cost. The wheels and tires were $1300 and included shipping from 4Wheelparts which was cheap compared to pricing elsewhere. Lift was about 220 I think.

    Ride is good. The only real difference I notice is when hitting a bump in the road at anything faster than about 20mph, the steering wheel wants to move from my hands but I think thats more from the larger surface area of the tires contact with the road than the lift. Other than that rides fine
