    talked to them today about their uca's. awesome customer service. they said they might be willing to do a group buy if theres enough people ill call back tomorrow and get it set up :D and it wouldnt just be uppers you could buy the coils and uppers or their full kit. might start a thread on it in the gb section

    if you have the money id get the Doetsch Tech kit or at least uppers and spindles to get you that bit more down travel you want plus the added height if we get enough people they are willing to cut us a deal. let me know and i can set it up :thumbsup:

    my deterrent is the rear. even if i bought the bolt on taquito kit the rear would cost me twice as much.. don't know who could do it around here either

    I'm thinking the rear would have to be custom? I've never come across a bolt on rear lt kit. then again I've never done too much research into it... no need to drool over more truck parts.

    if you get the tc taquito kit it only cycles 11.5" for the rear you could do extended shackles and a deaver j59 leaf pack and youd be pretty close to even on travel and height

    haha it would be an awesome rear lift option as well. as for the front end i talked to carol at doetsch and she said they may be willing to do a group buy on ther 5 lug tacoma products and i emailed her about prices and such for everything. ill be picking up a set of their uca's here shortly if your interested to get something we can get a discount for buying in bulk :D

    I think Carol is the lady I talked to too... She was very nice and helpful

    I doubt we'd get enough takers for any large discount with our small following here... Maybe 5 at most

    (And don't you dare try to drag me into it either :D)

    The last thing this college student needs is more money sunk into his truck (as I drop $350 on HID offroad lights and hopefully a Beefed skid whenever he gets one mocked up) :anonymous:

    downey mid travel 2wd set up
    what's up twin...

    your the only other person i've seen with the same set up as mine. Can you elaborate on tc crossshaft? Is that behind the coil bucket? I noticed you took the uca cross bar that attaches to those tabs in the rear of the arm so i'm guessing that's what your refering to.

    Yours looks like its set up super low. Did that even lift it much? I have twelve threads showing on beneath my coil and a 1/2" spacer behind the coil bucket to correct camber.

    my set up
