    I have a question for anyone that knows about the 1st gen. tacos I got a 01 mini-xtra cab.

    i want to make mine LT but i dont want to spend all that money on a LT kit right now so.....

    I was thinking if i could just swap out my stock C/O's for King C/O's

    Would that work? or should i just save for a LT kit?

    Its a lot easier to install everything at once.. I know your excited to slap on that new suspension, I would be to, but I would wait till I have all the pieces to the puzzle before I start putting it together.

    If its a Mini (5 lug) like your post said then you dont have C/O's just Coils and a shock that bolts up in the middle of the coil.

    Just do it all at once and make it easy on yourself. Brand new TC Kit, Kings, and install (plus a bar between the chock towers to help me not bend my frame...again) ran me 4300.00. Just start saving those pennies!

    gotta pay to play dude, in the long run LT is gonna cost you much more than you planned for. and it'll keep costing you as long as you have your truck. like said earlier, for a 5 lug it's all or nothing pretty much. plus there is no way a LT (8" shock) will fit on stock arms on a 5 lug truck. the shock is too big

    In my experience with building vehicles (1973 Jeep J-2500, 1977 Jeep Wagoneer, 1972 Alfa GTV) you really want to be "smart" about the order you go in. You do not want to buy one thing that will later not be necessary with the thing you will buy later.

    Therefore, while doing the whole thing at once is not absolutely necessary, it really helps when piecing together a build.

    Write it down as you go, much easier to organize things. It sounds nerdy, but I have a spreadsheet for parts for my Alfa. Now on my third vehicle build, I know better than to try to remember things. Haha.

    Oh...and beer...get beer

    Yeah until they see the Camo interior then they kinda run away usually lol.

    But yeah it sucks but life goes on and my truck will get built. Getting my quotes for hanging the leaf packs tomorrow then onto the cage....
