    Now I know evryone & their brother just about have the adjustable 3 setting Billies, this is where I again step out of the norm, I opted for the adjustable 5100 series 1st gen. TUNDRA Bilsteins....

    Why?:

    Heavier duty/dampening (good compensation for heavier aftermarket bumpers)
    & the biggest single feature: 5 SETTINGS !!! Thats right 5 instead of 3 !!

    I love them, no bottoming/topping out, ruts & bumps I had to brace for before I don't hardly feel anymore & by all accounts I have the only 1st gen Tacoma with Tundra shocks in this entire forum.....one of a kind, I like that.....

    Nice work on the Tundra billies. Was it a straight up bolt on or was there minor modding that had to be done for the shock mounts? Is it a rough ride or is it pretty soft? I know you said it takes the bumps pretty well...kind of curious is all. I am thinking of some billies up front in the future...

    Hey Conner how ya doin' buddy ? Yeah they are dimentionally the same as the bolt on 5100's for Tacomas, no MODDING of anything to install & I'm on stock coils, the ride is firmer not harsh to me anyway & get some Billies ASAP !! I'll have some front bumper pics soon too (since you & I hate the stock one haha:D)

    Thanks Phil , how you doing? I remember when you first joined up w/ a million questions (which is great in my book, if ya don't ask how ya gonna know right ??:D )

    I've been good. Just busy as hell. Enrolled in two different schools and still pushing a 30 hour work week is kicking my ass. But it'll work for now. That's interesting about the shocks. Right now I've got explorers up front with springs from an 03 DC 4x4 tacoma, so it added a bit of lift. It's still a rough ass ride. Which is why I'm thinking maybe some billies with the springs and I'll be set. I now have to order a new firestick antennae before the shocks. And a new tow strap. And possibly a new air compressor. The tow strap and antennae both snapped on me today on the trail. And the air compressor took a shit on me as well. It was still a fun trail though...got to pull some 2nd gens around! (One guy got stuck a few times, so I gave him a yank to get him out)

    Looking forward to seeing the progress on that bumper of yours. I haven't gotten my lightbar yet. I keep seeing an old Nissan Frontier driving around with the same exact one though and I'm sold that it's going to look good. I'm excited :D

    Thanks Doug! I appreciate the offer. Will definitely hit you up in the future, I'm sure. I'm thinking I might do a little trimming once I get my lightbar. but we'll see how it looks on there first before I do any.
