    Hey PCB, How is the lift and how was chux trux? What parts did you go with? I am new to Tacomas, but I just can't get it out of my head that I need to be riding just a little higher.

    As for the lift and Chux Trux, it was great overall.

    For parts I went the Bilstein 5100's all around, Eibach coils, and a 2" Pro Comp add-a-leaf.

    Chux Trux is a little expensive, but overall they were great to deal with.

    Nice, I need to start shopping around 4x4 shops in the area.

    Are there any groups that get together to hit some dirt? Is there a different thread to check for that? I feel like I need to put a couple inches on my truck and get rid of the rigid sport suspension before I can hit anything too extreme, but now that I have a truck I want to treat it like a truck.

    Unfortunately the Missouri area is very boring when it comes to TacomaWorld. No meets or anything...

    Ever been to the St Joe ORV trails? I'm looking for varying degrees of off road and a place to camp. St Joe is about 30-40 minutes north of me so I want to try it out.

    Yeah, St. Louis it way to far for me to drive just to trial ride for the weekend.

    I went to Potawatomi Off Road park a month ago, it was okay except it rained. Turned everything to slop.

    In Michigan? I'm taking a road trip out that way in a couple weeks, I might have to take a drive out there. You think it would be alright driving a sport with no lift?

    There are two places close to KC that I know of legally :spy:

    KC rocks around ft Scott, about two hours
    Randolph ORV, by Manhattan, again about two hours.

    PCB, I am about to level my truck with the 5100s and I have seen people comment on the lifts/levels to make sure the driver side is a little higher than the passenger side. Did you do this? If so how/why? I ask how because I think the four settings on the 5100s are too far apart to make the truck level when the driver is in.

    Just saw this thread. I'm in Shawnee. Saw a double cab yesterday night near the plaza that had high clearance rear with swingout, front bumper, bed rack and rtt. Anybody's here?

    Not me.

    If you see somebody driving around near downtown in a 1st gen double cab looking like he's lost, that's probably me.

    Haha. I should mention it was a second gen.

    I'm not down that way much except when I'm out riding the motorcycle. But I do work in riverside. If you ever see a debadged white dcsb 2nd gen with blacked out headlights it'd be me. Anyone trying to grab some grub and beers sometime?

    Once I get settled in I'm down. Still in the process of getting moved in from Arizona.

    Maybe next weekend would work. I'm scheduled to be at Mizzou making the magic happen with work all week.

    So out of curiosity, is there some sort of stupid law against changing bumpers out here? I have seen very few vehicles with aftermarket stuff on them in the KC area over the last week.

    Nope there aren't. You can doo whatever pretty much and not get any trouble about it. But if you are tagged in mo I'd recommend finding a way to attach the front license plate (although a lot of people don't run one and don't have much trouble)
