    Well, I've been creepin' on here for a while and I finally have my truck where I'm happy enough to make a build page...but real quick, a little back story:

    I never really got into cars/trucks when I was younger. I drove the same ol' car (1998 Saturn SL2) from age 16 to 25 and the only mods I ever did was a cd player and new speakers. Anywho, the Saturn was about to die on me and my wife and I couldn't really afford much. My wife's grandpa was gettin ready to trade in his 2005 base model Tacoma (with only 18,500 miles btw) and decided to offer it to us first at a price we couldn't pass up (speaking of, you may notice in some pics a few scratches/dings on the passenger side of the truck...yep, those were all him. Passenger side=old person's blind spot). Well, by looking at it I could tell it needed something...which led me to TW. And here we go...

    The before and after say it all. You went from grandpa's truck to something worthy envying. Congrats on the new wheels...Saturn's are cool and all, but this is a tad bit more manly.

    Nice build! I thought 5100's didn't fit on 5 lugs or is that just the front?

    Sorry for the delayed response, don't get on here much now that I sold my taco.

    I didn't ride the fat bob's shocks very long but the short time I did they were very stiff. Not sure if they would take some time to break in or not but I found a good deal on the bilsteins and noticed a tremendous change when I switched them out.

    Yes the fronts won't fit but the rears will. I got mine off shockwarehouse.com. They made a heck of a difference.
