    [​IMG]
    It only lasted a week like this.

    after spending a year in Korea I had a lot of money saved up and I wanted some new shit....I turned this[​IMG]
    into this

    I went to rock and roll off road and had them install the toytec 3" spacer lift with AAL in the rear along with my moto metals and nitto dune grappler 285-65X18's
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    I installed a K&N CAI a week after that and painted the engine cover EDIT: Sold K&N for other things...I miss it...its sounded so mean at WOT
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    with that "stimulus check" that everyone got I ordered a N-fab lightbar and 2 sets of hella 500's
    [​IMG]Then came the blacked out tails and 3rd brake light and a set of aux reverse lights
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    somwhere in there I installed a set of 6K hids
    [​IMG]
    sorry i dont have a better pic of them

    My Pioneer P5000UB HU Gotta have that Ipod hook up!
    [​IMG]



    I did the led cupholder mod and led footwells
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Maglight seat mount. I used the quick fist, got it at Cabellas for $7. LED maglight @wal mart $30
    [​IMG]


    I put in a cobra cb with a 3' firefly antenna


    [​IMG]

    and my most recent mod was installing the FOX 2.0 coilovers
    and removing the swaybar. It rides like a caddy...sooo smooth

    If whoever decides to get a set of these dont do the 4" of thread like all pro says....
    you will get a terrible ride and they will make bad popping/clunking sounds.

    I have about 2.5" of thread showing on the passenger side and 2 3/4" thread on the driver side and I think they are perfect.
    I keep the resi set at 2 or 3 for daily driving.

    just added some spidertrax wheel spacers. They made my tires rub in alot more places than before, so I had to do alot more trimming on the front and rear of the fenders and even trim some metal!

    yea, instead of just rubbing on the cab mounts they started rubbing on the fenders more. I guess before my wheels were tucked in just enough to clear them.

    I had the parts laying around for awhile and I finally got around to building a bed mount light bar.

    I also took my wheel spacers off, here's a pic of how wide my stance was with them on

    Awesome build. I love your shocks.

    I've got a question on the 2.0's though. All Pro says they're 8way adjustable. Does that mean that they are only adjustable in increments of .5''? Or are they infinetly adjustable? I'm asking because I'm curious if the Taco driver's side lean comes if putting a little more preload on one side is plausible to prevent it.

    I just re read it on allpro and it says that the remote resi's are 8 way adjustable. Is this correct and the shock preload is infinitly adjustable?

    the springs are adjustable with the spanner nut just like any other coilover.
    the RR has an 8 way selectable knob that allows to to adjust the shock dampening, 1 being the softest to 8 being the most stiff
