    I think he's trying to do it in steps... As long as you either limit it at stock travel (maintaining current shocks) or buy new shocks to handle the additional travel it'd probably work.

    Think of it this way though, stock shocks are what maybe 6" travel? Most lt se ups have more than that in just uptravel. Now figure in the stock pack thickness vs lt pack thickness. Now the shock mounts are 5-6" farther apart vs stock. New rear shocks would need to be minimum 10" like what im running just to drive it. Cant really drive the truck hard till thats fixed and figuring be doesnt have the front done its gonna be crazy tall in the back with lt so just gotta look at it from all directions

    I know, I'd go with the new shocks option personally.

    To be fair though, he said "Could I" not "Should I" haha. I'd personally say wait and do it all together, I think they look dumb with just one end done. Unless you have a nice mid travel setup up front and then LT the rear.

    I have taller/ stiffer springs up front and lift spindles so I'm lifted about 5" (the springs are kindof a ??) The rat has an aal and the scariest shackles you will ever see (previous owner did some questionable stuff). I just want to know if I can run an aftermarket leaf pack and use the same one later when I go lt. If not what would be a good one to look for now. I just don't want stock replacements. Even relocating the hangers I'd fine, I just don't want to cut up my bed yet. I think that will wait until I have a kit for the front

    I honestly don't know enough about LT to comment I'd ask those guys for sure. But I'd say relocate all the spring stuff now and get the leaf pack you want to run sorted out and then measure for shocks. But that means you need to buy shocks twice...

    Hey what's up 5 lugger guys. I'm new to this site and just bought my first Tacoma and I love it. I'm glad I found this thread for 5luggers. Quick question, I'm looking to upgrade my wheel and tires and I've been having trouble finding decent aftermarket wheels. Anyone have any suggestions on a good site to check out. Also will the Jeep 5 lug wheels work? I see the lug spacing is the same but not sure about the center bore or offset.

    Some Jeep 5 lug wheels are 5x4.5, which is what our 5x114.3 is.

    Some Jeep 5 lug wheels are 5x5.5, which will not fit our lug pattern.

    Thanks for replying, Yea i've noticed that some of the jeep wheels have the same lug pattern (5x4.5) but i've read on some other threads on this site that the center bore is different(too wide of a hole or not wide enough) What are your thoughts on that?

    60.3 centerbore for our 5 luggers if you want a hubcentric wheel.

    Anything equal to or greater than 60.3 will do fine if the wheel is not hubcentric.

    Just depends on what wheels you want and if they are hubcentric or not.

    Personally I don't care if my aftermarket wheels are hubcentric or not because I take my time and fit them properly.

    You can buy spacer rings to fill in the gap to the hub to make your wheel hubcentric, if you cared enough.

    I've been making a complete ass of myself on TW trying to find stuff for my truck thus far... Sorry, to those who have been helpful.:eek: I'll try to keep it very simple(for me).

    Who/where are you guys getting your metal bumpers from? Does anyone have a winch mounted on theirs? And, has anyone found a skid plate that bolts on? I know what I want to do, but need a little direction as to where you guys are finding these things. Also, who's doing the work? Thank you, any suggestions/ideas would be greatly appreciated!:D

    My aim:
    Lift 3in. front
    AAL rear
    Bilstein 5100s
    16x8 SCS wheels on 31s
    Heavy Duty front bumper w/winch
    Front Skid
    Building wood armrest
    List so far...

    I'll sell you all of that (used) for $150 shipped to the lower 48 states.
    PM me if this sparks your interest.

    Package deal:
    For 2005-current 5 lug, all models without X-Runner package.

    Upgraded Bilstein front shocks, Fat Bob's front spacer, Fat Bob's rear AAL and some well used (but still good) rear Bilstein 5100's.

    I installed the spacer incorrectly, all you need to do is rotate the shock body 180* as outlined in the Fat Bob's instructions that I overlooked. lol

    Everything is in fine working order and was only used on road.

    You'd get this (installation PDF in the link): http://4x4.fatbobsgarage.com/toyota-...014-p7630.aspx

    These AAL's: http://4x4.fatbobsgarage.com/toyota-...014-p7921.aspx

    These front shocks: Bilstein B6 Heavy Duty Shock Absorber
    - Front Right: P/N 24-185066
    - Front Left: P/N 24-185042
