    Pretty close to level - nice.

    With the front brushguard and the stance with just the AAL in the rear, I'm guessing you've already worked on the front - what did you do there?

    I know you mentioned tires - what size are they currently?

    If I remember right, 265/70/16 is the stock Pre-Runner size. They don't look too small with a 2.5... I am debating what I want to do for my truck. I'm thinking about the Toytec 3" coilover/AAL kit, but was unsure how it'd look with the stock size wheels.

    My rear springs are worn out (114k miles) and I put the $30 helper spring on to confirm/ test and it's made a huge difference, but I know it's a very short term bandaid. The 3" probably would look fine. I don't want to go to bigger wheels as I want to keep MPG as good as possible. I don't crawl or mud, just snow and sand, so stock size works for me.

    Thanks for the pics.

    yea i dont wheel at all in my taco, thats what the blue POS in the background is for lol, and 265/70s were the stock size (or thats what it says in the doorjam.)....mpgs are not a real big deal to me i just like the looks of big tires. sometime down the road imma get some toytec coilovers but for now i like it.
