    I set them back up to the top when I put the tires on. They only rub when I backup and turn so I gotta trim some off the plastic and I think it should stop. Full flex it rubs a little.

    Looks killer. It's nice to see a Tacoma that isn't over-accessorized.

    No regear? How's it drive? I'm planning on 33's and bilsteins For mine too eventually. Looks just like mine otherwise. At least aside from the relentless bumper I've got.

    It's still got stock gear ratios. It drives good, obvious it's a little more sluggish since I put the 33's on but nothing too bad. The only engine mod I've done is a K&N CAI (to me it seems to have helped with the throttle response and maybe some hp gain, some guys swear CAI is a waist of money though), but I think an OEM 2.7 should be able to handle the tires just fine. I do love the bilsteins, coil overs are an easy install if you've got a decent spring compressor not the cheap two piece all-thread kind.
