    It does overlap the bedrails and it's never shifted as far as I know. No marks on my paint anyway.

    I agree with you about the spindles. The CST's worked really nice on my Frontier.

    Thanks. Thes are 33.2 inches tall. Any bigger and I don't think the 4 banger would like it. It drives pretty decent with this setup.

    Awesome...that's quite a jump from leveler to 6". Looking great, I still love the black accents on the white truck.:thumbsup:

    Just out of curiosity, what kind of mileage do you get with the 4-banger with the tires and lift? I was actually looking to go with a 4, then the Sport kinda landed in my lap. It was all about the mileage coming from a v10 F250, now my winter mileage is in the low 14's with alot of idle time, and my summer mileage is pushing middle 18's. According to fuelly.com, I'm averaging about 15.5mpg.
    My driving habits, :)burnrubber::mudding:), lots of long graded hills, and winter warm-up idle time hurt me I'm guessing:notsure:

    Thanks John. Right now I'm averaging 18mpg according to the Ultra Gauge. Whenever I do the math the gauge is pretty accurate. I've been on vacation all month and all the driving here is 45mph or less in town. No highway at all. I expect I'll average 20 or so when I get back home and start driving more on the freeway.

    Having said that, I probably would rather have a V6 with this lift and tire combo. If I had any intention of doing a 6 inch lift in the beginning I wouldn't have bought a four.

    That 18-20mpg on a lift and tires like that make me JEALOUS!

    Thanks. The rear hasn't settled yet. It's still level like it was when it rolled out of the shop. The strange thing is I only got 6 inches up front even with the the Eibachs installed. That hasn't changed since the install either. I can't think my winch setup made those springs settle 1.6 inches.

    Thanks sir. It's good looking trucks like yours and others on here that gave me the confidence to do this lift. Absolutely zero regrets. I love it.:D

    shoot...my back used to be a little higher than the front, but now its sitting close to even. i'm looking for a way to add 1.5-2 inches to the back...maybe a bigger block or another AAL lol

    My wife and I went to Florida on vacation and while I was there I went to meet up with a few local TW members for lunch. One of the guys I met there was Will (Pyro13g) and he did the mod for me and a couple other guys. He took the gauge cluster apart and replaced 16 tiny orange LEDs with blue ones. Every one has to be soldered and it looks really tedious to do but he has done enough now that it's routine for him. I love the blue LEDs. Will is the man.

    Pyro13g has a thread here with more info on the mod:
    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/florida/148707-tampa-members-20-led-dash-kit-installed.html

    This is the thread where I met him. It's has a bit more info:

    I was having a hard time getting into the truck so I sold it.




















































































    Just kidding. I put some step bars on it. I'll take a pic tomorrow.
