    How my 05 impulse red 6 speed sits today:

    Took me two years of owning before I took a single wrench to it (aside from removing the shell every now and then). With the help of too many hours on tacomaworld and a new summer job I pulled the trigger and quickly put together a lift, wheels, tires, and grill in a matter of weeks.

    List of modifications:
    Bought with camper shell included- extremely useful!
    Toytec 5100/ebiach lift set at .85" with 1.5" AAL
    LR UCA's
    16x8 Pro Comp 7089's
    285/75/16 BFG AT KO's
    Thin lip satoshi second hand from Taco Mike
    Yellow fog lights
    Blacked out badges
    AFE Pro Dry filter
    Black Crystal headlights w/ yellow reflectors and blinkers
    Fog lights anytime
    Sony XAV-60 head unit
    LED interior lights
    LED reverse lights
    Reverse camera
    Plasti-dip rear bumper

    Some stockies:

    Removed step rails, painted skid plate black:

    Preparing to yellow fog lights:

    This stuff works great, I used 3 medium coats and it came out alot more opaque than I was going for. Should have stopped after 1-2 coats or not sprayed on such a humid day. I might wet sand and respray to see if I get better results.
    Before:

    After:

    Not a week later I had stockpiled my lift, wheels and tires and was ready for mod day! UCA's 5100's coils and AAL went on fairly smooth with the help of a couple buddies. Word of advice: do NOT install a lift on gravel! Not only was it unsafe but rolling around for 8 hours on gravel starts to suck. That being said it was very satisfying putting the lift on myself instead of paying a shop to do it.

    (Will update with better pics soon)

    Cleaned off the gravel from the lift install the next monday after work and had a new but used grill from Taco Mike waiting when I got home :D. Threw that sucker on and snapped a couple pics of how it sits right now:

    Got the Emblem mounted and blacked badges

    Got ebay crystal black headlights to try to match my blinkers and reflectors to my fogs. Came with clear blinkers and reflectors and I used the same spray on I used on the fogs to color them. Pretty happy with the result.

    How do you like the 5100's? I've been thinking of doing that... And also good to see another Missouriian on here, I'm from Missouri as well!

    Only driven on them for three days but love them so far. The 5100's paired with bigger tires seem to glide over bumps and crap in the road and do great on gravel roads (except for the BFG's grabbing gravel like crazy:D). Havn't had a chance to get it in a field or trail yet might wait till the CMC so I don't tear anything up.

    I've checked out mo4wd before pretty cool stuff I need to get in on a meet sometime.

    Ok cool, if you don't mind me asking, what did you pay for the 5100's?

    I used the discount code of 112710 I found here on TW and it came right around $665 before shipping. I got the BK 0510 kit that has all 4 new shocks. New ebiach springs up front, diff drop kit, top plate spacers (doublecab) and 2" AAL with new center bolts in back. It was everything I needed and I havn't even installed the diff drop or top plate spacers (forgot lol).
    I decided to do it right the first time instead of doing a spacer lift because theres no way you can really be unsatisified if you don't low ball yourself and just save and do a suspension upgrade.

    Okay well I'm thinking about just doing the 5100's and possibly an aal, do I have to do the other stuff since I only have an access cab?

    I might not be the right guy to ask since I can only speak for the kit I have but from what I've learned on here new springs never hurt. I think there are plenty of guys running your planned setup you'll just have to find them. I would think it would work but I'm pretty sure you run into travel issues since adjusting the front 5100's to 2.5" is basically keeping them compressed at 2.5" all the time, reducing the amount of available up travel. Thats why aftermarket springs were a better idea in my case. Don't quote me on this stuff though, just what I have read on here. Sorry I can't be more help.

    Ideas on the rear, do what I did to my chrome bumper plasti-dip it! Worked out great! And looks a ton better.

    Haha speaking of backing into stuff...
    I backed into a small tree in the driveway that left a little dent already. Nothing to justify a new bumper but def noticable in the chrome. I'll probably end up pounding it out but might be leaning toward the plasti-dip idea

    when you painted your fog lights did you do it on the inside or outside of the lens, and how well is it holding up?

    I just sprayed the outside, I didn't look to see if you could take them apart to spray the inside. It's holding up great!
