    My wife gave me the go ahead so I purchased some Konig countersteer off road wheels in black. Also just ordered 5100's and an AAL. I have an 06 Acc Cab TRD offroad in silver with a rear leaf TSB done last year. Thinking of setting the Billy's at 1.75 and adding an AAL to the TSB springs. Gonna mount some black walled 265/75/16 BFG all terrain T/A's on the black countersteers with black lugs. Let me know what u guys think. Good plan or not? I will post some before and after pics when it's done.

    I got the 5100's and the Toytec TSB AAL installed yesterday. I'm very happy with the results. Here is a before and after pic. Will be getting the new BFG black wall all terrain T/A's on black Konig countersteer wheels next week. Will post pics when that is done too.

    Looks good! :thumbsup:

    You said you were going to set the Billy's at 1.75. Did that happen or are they at 2.5?

    It has pretty much the factory rake. The first TSB brought it up an inch last year. I did the AAL 1.5". Total 2.5 in the rear. And set the Billy's at 2.5 up front. I want a little rake forward because I tow a bass boat regularly and don't want my front higher when i do so. It came out exactly the way i had hoped.

    Got the new tires and rims installed today. I love the way it looks and rides. I get some very slight rubbing when in reverse and turning at the same time. It is my mud flap. I might just remove them. I also have a slight pull to the right now. Not sure why. I had an alignment when I did the lift three days ago. My mechanic said I should not have to re-align even if I move up a size in tire. Not sure whats causing it. It is very slight and might be my imagination. I will see what happens as I get used to the feel of the lift and new kicks. If it keeps it up, I will get another alignment. Anyway...I love the looks of my new setup. Here are some pics.

    I didnt get the 5100's in the rear. Just the TSB and the AAL. $2000 was the limit my wife set for lift and kicks and rims...hahaha....so the rear Billy's are on the back burner. I will be getting them soon I think. I like the ride i'm getting now however.....will it be that much better with the 5100's in the rear??? Do I really need to spend more doe? I already told my wiff that i'm done spending. Maybe a white lie??.....hahahaha

    Looks good! I would removed the front flaps to avoid the rubbing. As far as the pulling to the right, could just be that it's wandering. Usually felt after lifting with stock UCA's. For that new UCA's are highly recommended, but not really needed. Helps to get alignment back to factory specs.

    I could not take the wandering anymore. I also don't want uneven tread wear on my beloved BFG's. I just sprung for some UCA's. I did not want to break the bank as I have already kissed about 2 G's goodbye on the lift, rims, and tires...... so I ordered Light Racing UCA's from Toytec. I don't really offroad much so I think they should be fine. Also, I heard the Uniball on other more expensive UCA's gets dirty and squeaks. Being from upstate NY and having to endure horrible winters with lots of salt and sand on the roads....I figured the sealed ball joint on the Light Racing UCA's might be a better choice for me.
