    Daytime headlights pics? You have the original 3bar side marker leds (the stagger) I think these look 100% better than the current (same size strips)

    Everything looks great. I really like the headlight lighting. Completely different than anything out there. Anything that is @MESO is a win but a (1 of) is awesome. :hattip:

    5% window tint Clazzio Covers Bilstein 5100's OME 887's SPC Upper Control Arms 17x9 -12 Fuel Vector 265/70/17 Falken WildPeak AT3W Craftsman Tool Box

    EXACTLY the parts I have on my order list.

    A few questions:
    1. Did you have to trim any plastic in the front?
    2. Any issues with the TSS? Ive been reading that some people have issues with that after lifting 3" or so. I don't want to mess anything up warranty wise (other than the obvious parts from lifting it)
    3. What gas mileage are you getting?
    4. UCA necessary? Or did you do that to avoid having to do it later on down the road?
    Thanks a million!!


    Edit: Going with 265/70/17 with the Fuel Vector in a 17x8.5 -6mm offset.
    Tire size is about the same as you, just a bigger wheel.

    my tires rubbed the front air dam only when cornering very sharp with the steering at full lock (doing donuts). I wasn’t rubbing the cab mounts until I put on 1.25” wheel spacers making my wheels sit at -30something, so I cou a can mount chop.
    Mine is a 2017 so no tss.
    I heard 3” of lift require uca’s, but some have gotten away with out them, but I didn’t want to take that chance.
    Im currently getting between 17.5 & 19 mpg around town. Highway mpg is about the same.

    Any issues with the TSS system before changing grille? I have a TRD sport with OEM grill and about to do a 3” lift. The only thing holding me back is the concern of TSS issues

    Any issues with TSS after lifting? Going with a 2.5-3” lift but hesitant to pull the trigger after seeing people talk about TSS issues.

    awesome. What made you go with 888 vs 887? I can't seem to decide which ones to go with. I would rather be level or have a rake ≤ factory rake. I was going to get 265/70/17 tires but I may go bigger. You have any trimming with you 285s? Also looking at going ahead and putting on spc UCAs while everything is apart. I also read where someone with Fuel Vectors had an issue with them being lug centric vs hub centric? You running spacers?

    Thanks for the info!!

    Finally got around to installing the prinsu rack and love the look. Can’t wait to get some cases mounted up there033039C4-B052-4FC5-8A81-8AF0DB8964AB.jpg FD39F0A9-79D2-462E-9F08-350195CB8435.jpg

    Thanks! I did 35 on the fronts and 55 over the stock tint on the rears. I wanted to keep the fronts lighter than the rears, but reduce the difference between the fronts and the rears while making all of the windows darker. I've been really happy with how it came out.

    The vent visors are by AVS, the non low-profile version

    What black grill is that? I've been debating on putting a black grill on this color.
