    Just a 2.5x8 double. Likely a psc setup. Need to sort out specifics for orbital and everything to make sure she still runs on the street well.

    I like howe stuff, but after trying to get info from them for 3 months with zero answers, I'm less than interested in dealing with them.

    Fair enough. I’m pretty shocked.

    I have some PSC parts if interested. I’ll PM you.

    Just been bugging them about internal limiting and some other stuff and all I've gotten is a "we don't have a part number for that" email and it's been a handful of months. Psc isn't the best either, but they do respond. I'll be more concerned in a month or two when it's time to order.

    I'm at the same point as you. Hammer hangers and aftermarket leaf pack? 63 swap? I am leaning towards the hammer hangers as I am still primarily street (sad stuff). I still want to do the shock relocation so I can run 12" shocks.

    fun offroad parks but you have to go with a group AOAA is the easier of the two with their green trails for people without armor. Then I'm going to VA in 4 weeks to run Potts Jeep Trail should be kind of difficult. Then VT class 3 or 4 roads i forget which were really fun as well I did on 33s but 35s im sure wouldve been more comfortable bashing skids around. Pretty much you got 3 options for fun in PA then everything else you gotta drive for lol

    I don't have any groups to go with, if you do any trips to the parks let me know! My Tacoma is pretty much stock for now. I do have a pile of parts in the garage just waiting to get put on.

    You should reconsider the Hammer Hanger. I vote 63s all the way. This is the smoothest my truck has ever been towards the rear

    Keep in mind, that's a 37 inch tire

    Bunch o stuff.
    Getting ready to hit Moab the 30th Sept through 2 Oct.
    Hit a local FSR to test the flex. Out solo didn’t do anything to crazy.
    Here’s a pic of my bumps starting to compress with just over an inch of shock shaft showing before the compression bumps on the shocks. These are the 4.25 DuroBumps. Wondering if I should leave em. Space em or get the 5.25s?
    Not at full drop passenger. Added photos.

    The only issue I see is if you bottom out hard while driving a little fast the shocks could be the bump stops which is not very good. Those duro bumps will compress pretty far before you actually reach hard bump (I had front and rears on the truck before I did air bumps). You could easily sell those and get a longer set. Bottoming out the shocks puts all the force on the frame mount and axle mount vs putting all the force into the bump pad on the frame. With how soft the first part of the bump stop feels it’s way less harsh. You do have a rubber bumper on the shock which will also give a little which is good but I always set up my rigs with 3/4” shock shaft showing at hard bump.

    Thanks for the info. Maybe picking up the 1” taller 5.25 DuroBumps might be a good idea? Really liking them so far.

    I would, when I sold my duro bumps they sold the day I put them up.
