    I purchased this 08 Tacoma in Sept., ordered the parts in Oct., and built it in Nov. I want to give a big Mahalo to Kaina over at 4 Wheel parts Hawaii. Everything went smoothly, and all the parts came in with no problems at all. He even gave me free shipping to the Big Island.
    I put on a Fabtech 6" Dirt Logic coilover lift that rides better than stock (IMO). I added a 3" bodylift to be able to clear the 35X12.5 Mickey Thompson's wrapped around 17X9 Procomp wheels. With some minor trimming it has good clearance, and off roads well! :D

    I'm not sure of the exact gas mileage, but it is less than before I lifted the truck. Its worth it though.

    O I love it for sure. I guess I need to find a little cheap beater to drive back and forth to work so I can do more of what I want to my truck. It's about 70 miles one way, sux.
