    Thanks Matt.
    I wrote all but the intro & captions under the pics.
    Tim is a new member here & he said he was the editor of TacomaHQ.com.
    I checked out his site (lot of good info there) and found the featured truck section where it says contact us if you want to see your truck featured so I did.
    I sent him a pic & the specs for my mod. He replied that he would like to feature mine and wanted more info like when I got it & what I like to do with it. So I wrote what I did and the rest is history.

    For anyone wondering why they haven't seen pics of my skids mounted yet it"s because I screwed up the paint job.
    I'm painting them Rustoleum hammered silver & I learned you should not use this paint with metal sitting on cold concrete. I warmed the garage with a Coleman lantern so the air temp in the garage was around 55* to 60* but the concrete was a different story. The paint came out all funky looking so I need to repaint them.

    Front end has lowered to 22 5/8" center hub to fender after installing sliders & skids.
    Now I need to decide if I realign & live with it or install 1/4" spacers to regain 1/2" & realign it.

    Well I made up my mind & got the 1/4" top plate spacers from Eric while we were in town today to regain 1/2" of what I lost adding sliders & skids.

    Thanks to Walt & the rest of the great people at Blitzpro I have won two free LED light bars so far.
    They still haven't anounced all the winners yet, so there maybe more on the way.

    I'm thinking of buying another 6D to have a pair on the bumper.
    And the 6LZ either between them or as an extra backup light.

    I just finnished adding 1/4" top plate spacers & I'm almost where I was before adding the sliders & skids.
    I was 23 3/8" DS I'm now 23 1/8".
    It rides just like it did before adding the spacer, just 1/2" higher & better than it did before adding the sliders & skids.

    That's good to know I saw that toytec has a kit to change the bilsteins to full coilovers and I think I'm going to go with that... So far the 5100s are amazing but I also love ome stuff... Had an one on my tj and my liberty and they were the best.... Its still a debate...

    I went OME because they don't preload the coils.
    Even with the conversion kit you will only be able to adjust the preload easier.
    By adding a 1/4" top plat spacer I increased my lift 1/2" without changing the load of the coil or decreasing the compression room.
    It rides exactly like it did before I added the spacer.
