    My experience with Dustin is exceptional!
    My FN Pro bronze wheels will be arriving tomorrow according to FedEx. I’m switching out my FN Pro dark gray gloss ones.
    Taco TRD 2016 got totaled because of Harvey.
    Got a QS 2017 TRD....

    Do you mind sharing details about any suspension upgrades, rubbing issues and tire brand/size?

    Yours looks great.

    Thanks!
    I did tons of reading on TW lifts etc., pros/cons etc and on ReadyLifts.
    And on the web.
    So figured out what was best and most applicable for me.

    On my current 2017 TRD OR:
    Zero rub even when cranked all the way to turn going up or down an upgrade.

    What I desired:
    Better ride/dampening via the Bilsteins.
    A slight lift and wanted to level the truck.
    Didn't need a hard core lift package for the kind of driving/use I do, and with that in mind wanted to keep the costs minimal but still good for the truck.

    Tires: 265/70/17 Nitto G2 Terra Grapplers
    Bilstein 3rd gen 5100 all around, set on 1 up front if I remember correctly, to level truck.
    ReadyLift, this particular one fits the Tacoma 2016+ : https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00IOYRF6G/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I got the Readylift on a Amazon Gold box deal, paid $169.75 I just looked, it's $227 now.

    Bought Bilsteins from Headstrong, Marie who is super knowledgeable, super service, got to my house like in 3 days after ordering:
    $339.99

    Installed Readylift and Bilsteins at a local off-road shop for $480. He checked the alignment, didn't need one.
    I talked to him quite a bit about ReadyLifts and block lifts in general, etc.
    He agreed for what I was doing driving wise, it was fine.

    Most of my off-roading is beach/sand, some out west in Big Bend National Park on gravel, sand, rock and also took a trip out to Moab. Can't say I did any off-roading that you had to have 4x4 engaged other than sand.
    The 'good' thing with the Readylift is that it gives me the same ride I had with the Bilsteins on a 2016 TRD OR I had, not lifted, that hurricane Harvey totaled.
    My total lift is 2.50" that I measured from the hub's.
    Truck is level.
    I had everything checked at 200 miles, all was good.
    I'm 6'-3" so I can still get in my truck without any step etc. ; )

    No lift just Bilstiens and Nitto’s.
    Much better seat of your pants ride compared to my TRD OR OEM shocks.
    If you don’t do a lift do the Bilstein shocks at a minimum.

    My wheels came today. Had them shipped to my office, so when they got here I opened them up and have been looking at them all day like a kid on xmas morning. Needless to say, my productivity level when way down today after delivery.

    I'm looking for some of the silver TRD center caps if anyone has some they aren't using b/c they decided to go in a different direction and they are just taking up space in your garage. Let me know if you wanna unload them before I pull the trigger and just order them online.
    Thanks!

    Took off the FN Pro’s dark gray gloss, Nitto G2’s 265/70R17 and slapped on the FN Pro’s bronze and Nitto G2’s 285/70R17....no rubbing with mud flaps so far.

    Has anyone put the matte black trd decal on the high gloss gun metal wheels? I just got them and my truck is mgm, I am going to plastidip my emblems, remove the trd decal and replace with a matte black one with mountains and wanted to see what that wheel cap decal would look like on the high gloss if anyone has a pic. Really any pic of the trd decals from importequipment on the high gloss will help, esp on a mgm taco.
    Thanks in advance!
    My truck as it sits now.(stage 1) stage 2 will be the 5100's, 885's, and rear aal.
    tires are 265 70 17
    Open to suggestion on colors for the trd decal or if I should go with the silver and red trd center caps. Tooooo many options!!!!
