    Hey TW thinking of getting some new upgrades for my taco for the front I wanted to add a Pelfreybilt bumpers The Front One HOOP ALUMINUM BUMPER And Rear BLACK BUMPER With Extra RIGID LIGhTS srq2 and for rear suspension wanted a new 4 inch leaf pack not sure where to get one from yet and I wanted to use the 2.0 fox rear shocks not sure if they would work with a 4inch lift and for the front new fox 2.0 coil overs set at 0 with maxtrac spindles are these good choices or what do you guys think any input appreciated thank you!

    Pelfreybilt makes good stuff.

    Your selection of shocks combined with the MaxTracs spindles will get you what you want; there are a number of vendors here like SDHQ, Headstrong Offroad, Down south, Wheeler's, etc who are extremely knowledgeable and friendly and will help you decide on the details (e.g. valving, shock length, etc) of your specific set up. One thing I suggest is going with 700# coils since you're going to be carrying all that extra weight from the bumpers. You won't carry nearly as much preload as you would with sub 700# coils, and your on- and off-road performance and comfort will reflect that.

    For the rear springs, you could go with OME Dakars with the D29XL overload spring, which is what I have on my PreRunner. On my 4wd I have Icon leaf springs, and I am quite happy with both, but IIRC the Dakars gave me a bit more lift in the rear overall. All Pro makes two different sets that many here have been happy with.

    If you want to see what a damn good PreRunner build can do, check out @Airdog 's build thread. His truck has served as the inspiration for my PreRunner build and the eventual refinement of my 4wd's.

    We sell all of the products you mentioned and can offer some help. The poster above recommends 700-lb coils, but they really aren't necessary with an aluminum front bumper unless you add a winch. Pelfreybilt makes a solid product, and you can't go wrong with Fox Shox, we run them on our own trucks. The front coilovers you posted will work with the Maxtrac spindles, but the rears are only 8" travel, which will be too short for 4" springs - you'll need 9.5-10" travel with a relative short shock body. As for the lift springs, we like All-Pro's and can perhaps save you some shipping if added to our regular pallet shipments we get from them.

    I might not get a winch but maybe down the line I might would it be that bad with the fox coil overs in the front I'm thinking maybe a month or so I might be able to pull the trigger and buy it all could you quote me on the stuff you guys could sell me?

    :thumbsup:

    See? Lol. It may not be 100% altruistic but vendors here do go out of their way to help out TW members.

    Just keep digging deeper and deeper into TW; if there is something you want to do to your truck, chances are someone else has done it before and written a how to (or a warning that it's not a good idea).

    Regardless, say good bye to the contents of your bank account. :D

    Or buy a few stickers. Cheaper.

    Once you're hooked, the hook will kill you if you try to take it out.

    I wrapped my truck in Unobtainium, so I can't do one little mod cuz you can't remove Unobtainium once applied.

    Well, that was after I got my supercharger :burnrubber:

    Congrats on both! I've been married less than a month, and its pretty awesome... Although she has said that almost verbatim about my Tacoma and I.:laugh:

    Going back to your original post, don't be afraid to shop around. Also if you can wait, the holiday season is just a few months away and vendors will usually have some pretty awesome deals. Labor Day sales are not uncommon either.

    Haha I sure hope not...

    Does anyone know if the fox 2.0 coil overs include the springs? Or do I have to purchase them separately?
