    Haha! Yea, the truck was sitting on the driveway when the picture was taken. The taco was stored at my dad's shop for the past few months because I've been lagging on the suspension and just finished up today. It looks like it dropped the rear about an inch or so and the body guy took care of the rubbing issues I had with the tire wall by rolling the fenders flat. Now after the front was done and lowered it back down, I noticed it raised significantly. I'll check it out tomorrow and see what might be the problem. I'm just so excited that there gonna start spraying the truck next week! The color will be Nissan's gun metallic.


    Here is a side shot. I forgot to take pictures on a leveled surface but as you can see the front clearly raised at least an inch or two.

    I also noticed I have positive camber after removing the front wheel spacers and 1.5'' drop spacers.

    Here's more shots from today. I think the springs need to settle in so I'll just worry about it until after paint. A lot of the front end parts were off so it should bring it down a tad bit more.

    The rear set up is XII 2'' steel leafsprings, 4'' beefed blocks, defined engineering leaf shackles (.5"), and QA1 shocks. The ride hasn't been driven more than a mile since the install so I'm hoping the rear will tuck more tire.

    I was checking out your build thread and I gotta say that is one sick lookin taco you got! A pearl or matte white was my original choice on color but I already have 2 white cars. I think 19s would be the perfect size for a 6''/7'' drop or bagged laying on frame.

    Nice! How's the ride with the new springs similar or better or worse then the 6 luggers ? I'm looking into prolly taking my stock leafs to a shop and dearch them 3" and dump the 4x4 cuz they creek and I can't seem to figure it out

    I wanna tuck tire too but I hate the fact that when I went smaller tires I gained another 1/2" gap so we will see how close I can get it for sure if I had 20s Id be easier to tuck

    Ima try the raise the UCA when I get back home and add some new struts and 1/4" or 1/2" spindle spacer

    Are you wacking the third member on the cross member under the bed? I wack it when I bottom on a hug bump or carrying a load

    yep, im retarded. Get me a helmet and send me to school.

    Looks good! deffinately not a color you normaly see on a taco.

    i saw the pics on the last pages, so dusty it looked primered.

    I like the shaved rear end, i dont think i have seen it done on a 2nd gen, and it looks cleaner and more natural than other shave asses ive seen on the net :D

    So I went back and figured out you got it repainted because the painters screwed up the first time and the paint faded bad.
