    i had a 10 reg cab but i was disappointed in its lack of power. so i looked around and found a high millage double cab trd sport. it has 150000 on it. but i love the power and the added room, now when i go places with my parents and gf we can all go in my truck. we used to take 2 cars. i also love the power windows, power locks, bucket seats and the outside temp gauge (ahhh the little things in life that i love). i got a pretty good deal, i was able to lessen my payments by one year and lower them by 10$ a month. they also "gave me" what i paid for for my 10 reg cab. i was also able to take most of all my mods to my reg cab. my kenwood deck, wet okoles, mag lite, tool box, ultra gauge, and weather tech all season mats.

    i am happy with my purchase, even though the high millage it runs like a new car.


    here are some pics

    p.s keep all your "you made a mistake" comments to yourself. i am looking forward to modding this baby . . . . or should i say grandpa [​IMG]





    day i brought it home
    [​IMG]

    first mods were painting badges black and adding toy yoda decal.

    thanks. the only thung wrong with it is there seems to be something loose by the window. whenever i have it down all the way there is a rattle sound. but if i roll thewindow up a little the rattling goes away.

    i plan on putting bilsteins up front and putting them up to 1.75". so will i just need a 1" leaf in the back? and since the truck has 150000 miles on it should i replace the rear shocks to?

    I just put 5100s up front at 1.75 and it sits almost level with no aal or tsb the rear is still about 1/2 inch higher. I will be doing the rears with an aal then set the fronts to 2.5....it looks more level when its not on a hill
