    -OEM Bed Mat (PT580-35050-SB)
    -BlackHawk Holster for Glock.

    Looks aesome but I think you have too much front lift to keep your cv's happy.

    Too much? I thought it was safe to run the 885's with top plate spacer? I'm at 24" from the center of the wheel to the bottom of the fender, but I don't have any measurements from stock.

    From everything I've read, I thought diff drops did more bad than good on 2nd Gens? Also, what's the "boot slide mod"? I thought I had read just about everything before posting, lol.

    I'm not sure about 885's but I run top plate spacers with Eibach coils with my 5100's set at .85 and I'm just under 23 inches in front with 200 lbs on the bumper. I have a diff drop and I wouldn't lift my front anymore. Stock is around 20 inches so you have around 4 inches of front lift. Any more than 3 is a no go. Toytec recommends no more than 23 inches from hub centre to front fender lift.

    I don't really understand where my extra lift is coming from. ToyTec's site says to use the top plate spacers in order to achieve a full 3" of lift in the front. So how is it that 885's, top plate spacers, and 5100's set at "0" provided me with 4" of lift? The truck is mostly level with the 2" AAL, and the ride is amazing. I'm not exactly sure what else could be messed up? :confused:

    I think I'd yank the spacers and throw some meats on there and she'll be looking damn nice!

    Yeah I'm hoping to get some 285/70R17 KM2's sometime soon. Still gotta do my trimming and cab mount chop, but I don't know of anyone local that does that sort of thing.

    That's my problem too. I want to do it so I can go 285s but I don't have the welding skills to do it myself

    Haha, I don't have the skills OR the tools! I'm sure I could go buy the stuff, take my time, and learn how to weld, but I don't have the money right now to just blow.
