    SAS.. Need I say more.
    Yes, new front leafs from Davez offroad. Really tall right now but hopefully they will settle. Sitting at 7" uptravel currently... Before I had only 3".

    Many more things to come soon enough; whenever Mark is done with his family break and repays me for all the work I helped him with on his garage/truck haha :cheers:

    Frame height is at 28.5". Not sure what it is after the weekend of wheeling; which was awesome by the way. Only had a shock bolt go missing, easy fix.

    Wow man Great looking truck! I'm in the process of getting ideas for my 98 tacoma, i'm curious what you think about switching from IFS to SAS. I can understand the differences, but if coilovers were installed with a SAS wouldn't it be as good or even better than IFS? thanks

    The IFS is inferior to the SAS. Coil overs on the Solid axle is the best quality suspension you can get. Night and day difference on and offroad performance with a solid front axle properly set-up with coils. Even with leaf springs, night and day difference! IFS is a JOKE

    Everything is at your house :p

    I just wanted to let you know that you have an absolutely amazing truck sir as I'm sure you already know, and as such thank you for the wheeling the crap out of it.

    Thanks man!! :cool:

    That is fancy, but probably costs and arm and a leg. I am going to do something like -matt- did hopefully.

    Thanks, I cut it off in june of this year. Much happier without it.

    did you notice better performance or less weight after you removed it?

    Yes, it is! It'd be cool to bob and dovetail it this weekend after wheeling for sure!

    No change in performance, but way better visibility haha.

    Because it looked like a damn jungle gym and he couldn't keep the kids off it.


    Let it be a lesson to others to not let someone do tubework on your truck unless they actually know what they are doing.


    Haha, no. It's going be a busy weekend, I am lucky I am still able to get out Friday and Saturday.
