    My truck is a 2006 TRD Sport 4x4. It's been a continual build over the past four years and is nearing "completion".

    The focus now is on tidying up previous work and finishing up the build with a pair of ARB air lockers and 4.56 gears. The gears and lockers will happen in the next few months as I prepare to move to Alaska.

    Hopefully I will have some good weather this weekend and be able to clean the truck up and take pictures to capture all the changes. Here are some recent photos; wheeling pictures are buried throughout this thread.

    Landing was good.

    I wouldn't want to go much higher than that, though. Anything higher with my set up would turn more into a "drop" than a "landing". It felt smooth and didn't feel abusive to the truck.

    The rear leaf springs were a new addition since the last time I went airborne. Definitely a huge improvement in the rear; plus the soft sand certainly helps.

    Yea I think so - you can tell when they're being used because of the noise they make. When the air compresses out of them it makes a bump noise, but it dampens the rear end nicely. I put them on at the same time as the leaf pack so it's kind of hard to tell which component is responsible for what when the rear end is bottoming out.

    The back end won't kick up anymore, like on high speed stuff. Man a world of difference that was once I finally tamed the rear end.

    Nice ride

    Check out your alignment cams and coil over towers. Guys flatten out the alignmnet cam tabs and others have bent shock towers. Its cheaper to gusset first than unbend/reinforce later.:)
