    slower shutter speed and when you take the photo, you have to follow the car so that it stays centered and the background blurs instead of the subject

    Ok Ive been wanting to ask this for a while, I need my truck for my DD (and my only other option is a clapped out jeep) If I were to get the 2 inch All Pro Kit, would I be less inclined to not pull a james (lol) and keep the truck more on the ground with the less travel. I dont know if I really want to go all out and have a purpose built truck, and the all pro option although expensive seems like a less permanent option of longtravel that I could wheel with but not destroy the truck. Am I just talking crazy or is this a reasonable option for what I want or would a midtravel kit be better. :)

    Anyone know if the CV joints from a older Tundra are the same size as a 1st gens? I know the axles are the same diameter but longer. I found a set of complete ones that I would buy if i knew the CV joint would fit. When I went to autozone they said the Boots were the same size so I'd think it should work but I thought I'd ask first. You can't beat $50 for a pair of complete OEM CVs :D

    i'd stay away from autozone as far as CV's go..the actual CV has less movement and angle when compared to an actual toyota oem CV

    Tom the cvs I'd be getting are from a guy that took them off his tundra. So they are factory OEM cvs. Not the cheap china stuff.

    Do any of you guys have any 1st gen mud flats laying around? I have to get some because its really the last thing that I can get pulled over for thats easy to spot and I'm tired of getting stopped and questioned.
