    i heard the rear tends to settle after a few miles so i cut my overload spring and made a custom 1/2" block to make sit level after it settles. raised the front last night and measurements to center of hub to bottom of fender are 24 1/4" in the rear and 23 1/2" in the front

    I think it will be cooler building up yourself. Paying for extra packages is not usually worth it. Get a nice custom TRD sticker, invent your own edition.

    Great job, and nice install. Good choices on the parts. Great idea about using the overload to get an extra 1/2".

    i went through a few different places for parts. in southern california i went to this place called so cal super trucks and they had the front coilovers in stock and the UCA so i got that through them. the rear shocks and AAL i got through toytec as soon as moved to cheyenne from southern california.

    thats a pretty good idea, i figured most of the stuff that came on the trd i would replace anyway, i only miss the interior options and the headlights with leds. but hopefully ill be able to get those pieces as they come up

    Yea I know what you meant but On level ground it doesn't have that bad of an angle but the front will stay at that height. The rear will settle 1/2 inch or so. When level it sits nice but I will lower 1/2 inch when off-roading for a softer ride
