    Finally got warm enough weather to put my lift on. Toytec coilovers up front and LR UCA's with Toytec 2" AAL's out back. Yesterday I had the alignment done and asked them to get as close to 3 degrees caster as they could so I wouldn't have to trim the body mounts which they managed to get 2.8 on the drivers side and 3 on the right. With the 285's I had to do some triming on the plastic up front but an easy fit overall. I'll see if I can snap some pic's when it gets light out. If any of you in the hood ever need a hand with your lift let me know, I've done a few now.

    Yea, I've had real good luck with them on my FJ so I decided to go with them again on the Taco. They wear forever and though I don't didn't do a whole lot of off road with the FJ I couldn't stick them when I did. Good eye by the way

    Nice, always good to hear. For me it was a toss up between them and the MTZs which I ended up getting. So few people run the Destination MTs, so it's good to hear feed back, especially from someone with a Tacoma.

    Truck looks good btw. Damn good.

    Thanks. You'll find a lot more feedback on them over at the FJ Cruiser site. A buddy of mine had the MTZ's on his FJ and they wore real good. I also have the ATZ's in a 265 for a winter tire that I ran on the FJ and can't say anything but good about them

    You can but you have to run wheel spacers or your tires will rub on the UCA's. Mine are 1.5"
