    As the pile of parts grow I realize i have a problem..
    It all started with an 1988 Ford Ranger lifted 4" and cut up the fenders, then moved to a 1991 Toyota xtra cab, got hit by snow plow, so of course I needed Fiberglass bedsides and fenders, a long-travel suspension and more motor mods than I could count, headed to a 2000 Dodge Dakota lifted with a hemi swap.. blew the motor so back to Toyota..

    got the wheels, now for the fine tuning, maybe some cutting and coil adjustments, small cuts now, I did big cuts in the past.. and maybe in the future but right now its a new truck.. so i should slow down.

    I tried a couple places, with little success, so I bit the bullit and called up 4wheel parts on South blvd, they did a suprisingly good job, so kudos.

    Its a good 3" and a hair up from stock, I put a 3/4" spacer on top of the coilovers to keep the spring rate where I wanted. I did already cut the inner fender and some of the flare, beat back the pinch weld, by hardly any rubbing I mean on the body mount... the part I was not wanting to cut, but the more I read on the reason for the mount and its location I feel if i just dont get too out of hand it sould turn out great. I'll post a pic of the rub area later.
