    icon rebound 17x8.5 offset 0
    -rock sliders being fabbed
    -did morel door speakers front rear with Subaru tweeters in dash along 2 12”skar audio evls with a 2400watt amp

    How many turns on the front coilovers did you do? How does it ride with option 2? I am planing to go with option 1.

    Voodoo is a great color! I have 2 other dark blue trucks so I figured I’d lighten the blue up a little bit.

    Honestly with option 2 some weight helps in the bed to smoothen things out, it’s not harsh but more so then stock. Stiffening the dampening up on the suspension helped tremendously with on road comfort/longer drives. 5 turns is 1 inch(ish) of lift after the settle. I have 12/13 threads showing now. When I had a little rake and less preload, the truck rode better for sure!

    Sorry man I’m late with a reply, king gives you specs for the different spring rates, I recently switched to 700lb springs and have 3/4 of an inch of preload in the front, about half of what I was running for a similar lift with the 600s which were over preloaded to compensate for the sag of the extra weight I added. Truck rides great!

Thanks Tim for the quality work and dealing with me. :D Will also be doing hangers and shock relocation. Tim will also be doing the work! Sorry about the sag in the pic, I have a bunch of weight in the bed.

    Front view with the RRW stealth bumper and the high clearance cut, plus everything else mentioned.

    It’s not built yet... it’s getting there tho. I’m terrible with build threads and posting every modification individually, there’s a few minor things I forgot in the description. I’ll be doing rear hangers and a shock relocation on it, 35s and gears in the future. But, in the meantime, I have a few other goodies on the way. I hope my truck encourages you to start building! It’s definitely fun and a huge waste of money.

    Does that bumper interfere with the radar cruise sensor?

    Nope, never had an issue with the radar sensor period. If you do end up deciding you want to get the same one, they don’t have an install guide. It installs similar to the SSO slimline( I used a write up on Tacoma world and it was 98 percent the same) weighs just under 50lbs, and requires less cutting. If you have any questions if you do decide to get the bumper I’d be more than happy to help you with questions and what to cut. It’s very minimal.
