    nothing, all stock expect got a OE replacement air filter K&N.
    i like your truck man. as i was scrolling down i notice your truck is level. i wanted to ask you what type of lift do you have and you listed as a body lift. i wanted my truck to be so level, can't stand the leaning any longer.

    Its got a 3" body lift that i cant stand! I will be removing it sometime in the future. Its also got the leveling kit which is 3" blocks in the rear and a 1" spacer in the front suspension. It doesnt have the best ride, but i will be working on fixing that soon.

    You have a tach in your truck? Is it after market or is it in the gauge cluster?

    Is that right? Or did you mean the other way around? 1" block in the rear and 3" spacer in the front... Because Tacoma's came with the rear slightly higher than the front and if you added 3" in the rear and 1" up front, I would think you would have a horrible lean towards the front.

    Yeah its more like 2" in the front. Im not sure if the previous owner kept to OEM springs but the spacer isnt that big. I know that there is a 3" block in the rear. The previous owner wanted a cheap lift so he just did spacers.

    Your truck looks real nice! I like the pic in your sig, looks like a bad ass spot! I was wondering if you had any more pics of the custom roof rack on your topper? Looks interesting, do you use it much?

    Well you should only have 3in of lift form your lift if you took out you BL when adding the eibachs...unless I missed you saying you took it out.

    I am almost considering trying a small BL(I know) just cause I feel like its not sitting with enough clearence for the 33's, that or maybe some bushwackers.

    O and as for your grill white idea Im attempting that as well lol i got a spare one so im tryin it, not sure how to satoshi it tho.

    Trucks looking good man, our style still looks the best.
