    The front trd or mats are zip-tied in. A 30K truck with zip ties. Huh.

    So I go to the store and get 5 sandbags and put in. Damn near wrecked on the way home with the swaying. A 30K truck and the springs are FLAT with only 300 lbs. Huh.

    Makes me wonder about Toyota. My 93 stock has the same 300lbs in it and it rides just fine.
    Yes I know about the 2008 TSB for the springs but DANG!

    OK, now for the good part. I think the suspension can be fixed (shouldn't have to). I like the looks of this truck a lot and hope to heck I am gonna be really glad I bought it. Liked the radio just fine. All the switches seemed to work. About had a heart attack when it wouldn't go in 4wd low until I read the owners manual that it has to be in neutral. Works OK.
    I ordered the truck and had it shipped in.

    But stock it actually sucks. Only 300 lbs, sheesh.

    If I can't get it done then I will HAVE to purchase aftermarket, cause this doesn't cut it.
