    After toyota bought back my 2000, I had to have another, so this time, I sprung for an 03 TRD model:

    Started stock in Yonkers, New York in July of 2010. I began the 1700 mile trek back home to Austin,Texas stopping in Baltimore to visit family, then Nashville, TN and Dallas as crashing with friends.

    In the last 2 weeks Ive added:

    • 32" Hanook Dynapro MTs
    • Toytec Coilovers
    • OME Dakar rears, and Bilstien 5125s in the back.
    • Weather Tech Floormats (TW group buy)
    • Wheels were purchased on CL, but I believe they're wheeler's type B (15x8 steel)
    4-30

    Just did the rear differential, and bought a K&N today. Off to find a deckplate!



    front bumper/winch TBD (probably smitty built since Im a newb) ARB or all pro depending on my craigslist luck :)

    Rear diff mod, extended brake line, carrier bearing drop are waiting to go on,, though no major vibrations...

    Are your rear springs hitting your tailpipe? Did you get the OME exhaust hanger bracket with the springs.

    Just thought I'd ask. If your springs are hitting the exhaust, let me know if you want one of the OME relocation brackets, I have one I'm not using, or you can just cut your exhaust. :)

    Good looking truck.

    Those tires look great! Would you purchase them again?

    How does your suspension ride? I know I loved getting ride of my spacer lift for a good ride.

    Sweet truck!

    Thanks for the compliments fellas, just took a spontaneous road trip to New Mexico (in a buddies navigator) which we discovered is not as off road friendly :p

    -the Springs tap the exhaust every now and again, but the hanger was cut so its not too bad. I appreciate the offer!! Im planning on just hacking the exhaust though :)


    @Vacountryboy- Loving the tires probably < 200 miles in now, and they're very quiet for a MT (my only other experience is with some worn out Dunlop Mud rovers that came on the used wheels). I actually meant to buy the maxxis bighorns, but grabbed the wrong sheet of [research] paper when I went to buy them. Still very pleased!

    Suspension is awesome...getting used to climbing in an out instead of stepping, very minor rake to the rear, handles like a dream.
