    I am going to try to throw progress pictures in this post. It's going to be as chronological as possible

    First real things i did to the truck were tint the front windows and get a bed cover. If you have not tinted your windows I highly recommend it. I got a solar tint that really cut down on the sun beating through!
    0629151834.jpg

    Next upgrade was new wheels, Tires, Shocks and AAL (all pictured here). These wheels were 17" 4runner wheels. They fit okay but they were really too narrow for the 285/70/17 tires.
    Also in this picture I have the 5100's at full lift on stock springs. It was doable but not a very nice ride. I soon got the OME885 springs and dropped the 5100's back to 0. Much better ride and road handling.

    That's all I have time for today...Stay tuned...
