    Guys,

    I just got a sweet offer, but don't know if I should take it...

    Someone has offered me to swap my stock leaf pack for his leaf pack with wheelers 3 leaf progressive AAL and bilstein 5100 for $100.

    I just put a lift on my GFs Taco two weeks ago. Billy 2.5" Front and Toytec TSB AAL 1.5" rear with stock bilsteins.

    I wanted to buy his rear 5100s because he is selling them to me for $100, but then he also offerred that if I wanted to, we can swap leaf packs...my leaf pack for his with the wheelers progressive 3 leaf AAL...all for the same price.

    Just not sure if I should do it.

    The tacoma (Prerunner SR5) won't see much wheeling, if any at all, but I might tow my car to the track with it...so I wasn't sure if swapping leaf packs was a wise idea.

    Opinions?

    Kind Regards,
    Ryan

    Truck is 05 Taco. The billys have 6k on them.

    I may be towing my car to the track with it...but not too sure yet...

    He's going back to stock I believe.

    Kind Regards,

    No TSB did not qualify for it.

    Lol Just spoke to the GF, guess she doesn't want the decreased load capacity...she needs it for the hay she'll be hauling around for the horses.

    :)
