    So this is my 02 tacoma pre-runner, trd. 2wd, this is when i first got it :)
    When i first got it, it had 154k miles on it, and it had fabtech coils, very old, so i replaced them with new fabtech co's dirtlogics 2.5 :D i also added 4 kc's and a light bar, and a flowmaster, pipe comes out thru the cab.
    couple months later i added some pro comp co's in the rear, had some mounts made for them and installed them.
    After having a semi mid travel up front and rear i decided to go front LT with the engage 2nd gen kit. Bought it from a member and installed that. After the Lt i decided to go rear LT and had LSK do my rear. Bought some bilstein 17in smooth bodies, bought my 50T pack from tcyota, a member on DR. So worked my way up pretty quick, stoked to test the truck. Does pretty well, just need some valving. This past september i purchased fully fabricated spindles from SOLO MOTORSPORTS and now im 7inches wide per side. No big deal.
    Thanks for looking tw

    looks good but what I dont understand is why there are shocks on the back that are meant to have a coil on them :confused: did the previous owner have those on to make it stiffer or something?
