    Well I finally got my taco lifted this past weekend, decided to do the work myself despite my lack of experecnce working on trucks, I think it turned out pretty good. Let me know what you guys think, if it wasnt for this forum I dont think I would have been able to do it on my own.

    Looks good... I'm going for a similiar look. What means of lifting did you do and what tire size?

    Toytec ultimate lift kit with light racing uca's, and the tires are nitto tg's 285/70/17.

    Yeah I have had it aligned (with light racing uca's), but they couldnt get it all the way right :confused: . I believe they said its 3/4 of a degree out on the right front and 1 degree out on the left.

    Ehh, im not really into swb's with bhlm, im going to take the ambers out of them tho asap, I like the clear look.


    Thanks for all the great comments, glad im not the only one who likes my truck, haha.

    sorry to tell you man but they suck, they just gotta work harder to get it into alignment. Mines perfect and i have a lift as well.

    Yeah I wanted tc uca's but money wasnt right at the time. The guy at the shop i got it aligned at didnt seem to know much about it so I just let him do his thing, and as soon as i can goto another shop and have them fix it (its under a warranty so i get free alignments).
