    Thanks! I love them. This is my second set, I had some 305/65/17 km2's on my dodge ram, before I got this truck. They are awesome offroad, and have pretty good road manners as well (for such an aggressive tire.) You can hear them on the road, especially as they wear, but not as bad as some. Had a problem with the steering wheel shaking when I first got the tires put on, but just had them rebalanced and seems to have fixed the problem. Other than that I would recommend them to anyone. :thumbsup:

    Added a maglight mount today, with an led maglight 3D cell. Fits perfect on the side of the seat and much more convenient :cool: Next up.....tint and a toolbox

    I think your truck looks good. I am running a spacer lift on mine and I havent had any issues yet. I do think there are better alternatives but mine works just fine for now. I dont wheel my truck hard but I do like to go to the beach, pull my boat and camper so I dont need an expensive lift right now. I am sure I will do something different a little later but for now I wanted to use the money for other modifications on the Taco first.

    Thanks a lot. You've got a clean looking truck too man.

    Yeah i'm wth you. I agree there are better alternatives, but I haven't found any problems with the spacer yet. I hunt a lot and spend quite a bit of time on dirt roads in the woods, along with the beach and pulling a boat, but no heavy offroading yet for this truck (its still too new! haha).

    Also, are you selling a fiberglass toolbox on craigslist? I was looking for one and it looked like your truck in the picture.

    I use my truck as a truck but I cant bring myself to beat it up. I see new trucks running around here all the time covered in mud and beat to hell. I cant bring myself to treat my stuff like that anymore. It cost to much to fix.


    That was me. I actually sold it tonight. I am going to use that money for some extra play money on my trip to mexico. Leaving in 10 days :).

    Yeah i ran my last truck hard like that and ended up having to replace an axle and whole front suspension before it was over (damn right it costs too much!). I"m trying to stay away from that with this truck though, hopefully i won't give in :eek:

    I thought that looked like your truck. Oh well I'm planning on getting a fiberglass box, how did you like it? Did yours have a cooler in it? And how much did you pay for it new if you don't mind me asking? And i'm a little jealous about mexico, with the words "extra play money" and "mexico" it'd be hard to go wrong haha

    Bought as a wrecked vehicle almost done repairing it. It is my daily driver
    Nice truck! I am in the same boat as you with the spacer lift. I had a 1st gen Tacoma I used them on. It didn't add to the performance it just made the truck look better, and it was a fun DIY project. I haven't decided if I want to use them in my truck or not though. I too have grown up a little, and now I find myself sticking to gravel roads at worse. My days of off road steep hill climbing are far and few.

    Thanks! Yeah I'm with you and it's something that can always be replaced down the road if need be. Yeah Im trying to tone it down a little, i wish there were some steep hills around here to climb, but all we've got is mud! I love it, but it'll tear your truck up for sure. Im trying to grow up a little and keep the taco out of it but its tough haha :eek: .

    Thanks a lot Robbie (nice name by the way haha). I think I ordered it on Amazon for like $3 or something just because I was ordering something else already. But I've heard you can just get them at walmart or ace hardware I think.

    I'd be happy to sell them to you but I already sold them probably a month or so ago. But if you look on the buy/sell/trade forum on here, those rims seem to pop up there pretty often. Maybe you can find some close by.
