    Is the bilstien upgrade basically good for off roading or does it give a better ride on streets as well? Or would most people not be able to tell the difference between the two?

    The one that comes on all TRD models. But not on the TSS models.

    are you talking about the factory yellow billies vs the black toyota shocks?

    If that is the case then neither.

    ^this. Get yourself some upgraded shocks quick. Although I did have a sales guy at a toyota dealer tell me that stock tacoma TRD's can run Baja...

    Well, shit. What are the yellow ones good for, then? I've put those things through(reasonable) hell and they're doing just fine.

    One does not simply...not offroad =l

    I've got 5100s all-around and they definitely improved my ride on-road and off.

    One tip that I can give you.....if you want a comfortable ride, stay away from Load Range E tires.

    They will beat you to death.

    When off roading I don't look for comfort. Thats why I'm asking.

    And I may have found the truck I want in 4x4 but it's a TSS and not the TRD.
