    By no means am I an expert.... but I'm in the same boat as you. My truck seems in need of some upgraded shocks very soon and I've been looking at this setup

    I've got 265/75/16's w/ the stock TRD height and I'm not planning on lifting anytime soon. But i'm new to this, hopefully somebody else can chime in with some more info because I'm interested as well.

    yes, those are an excellent choice..but the OP has a 91 pickup, not a Tacoma.

    OP: Your best options are either OME or Bilstein if you want a good shock for rougher use.

    Oh, Sorry man, I wasn't trying to Hi-jack the thread... I just overlooked that we were talking about a 91 pickup and not a gen 1 tacoma.

    How much are you looking to spend? I had an old '86 Toyota pickup that I ran Rancho RS5000's on and they were great for on and off road and only about $34 a shock... If you want Bilstein's you can spend a LOT more.

    Didn't know you were that good with photoshop. Because clearly you took this pic in your driveway and photoshopped those rocks under it. [​IMG]
