    Hey all,

    I just wanted to share a picture of what my truck looks like with my latest upgrades.

    I just installed a 3 inch lift with 18" wheels and 285 M/T Tires. I am loving everything about it so far and I can't seem to stop staring at it. haha.

    Mods to come next week:

    -Black Smittybilt step bars
    -Satoshi Grill
    -Led Tail lights

    Let me know what you guys think.

    Fronts: 5100 Bilstein set at zero. OME 885 Coils.
    Rear: Procomp shocks with AAL.


    Wheels: KMC Monster with Nitto Trail Grapplers 285/65/18. I know these wheels are played out but I've always liked the look of them.

    Rubbing Issues: I had to do minor trimming in the front. There's still some slight rubbing so I have to go back and use a dremel to shave some more of the fender/mudguard this weekend.

    I can't do sliders because my girlfriend is only 4'10'. Before it was lifted, she already needed to get a running start just to get into the truck. haha. So I need to get some step bars.

    You better get that front plate on otherwise cops will get you for tint if you have it and then write you up for no front plate. Just a FYI!

    I'm not sure what the BS is. The seller told me it had a backspacing of 5.xx. He didn't know that exact number.

    I understand the short girlfriend part. But I would advise against the smitty built step bars. Those things are fugly IMO. Get some of the "sliders" that have integrated steps. I don't know what brand they are but hopefully someone can help me out. The steps might get hung up on offroad obstacles but they would actually protect your truck body. Those smitty built bars buckle under the slightest load.

    EDIT: Or do this: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/beefed-taco/138280-bolt-steps-sliders-here.html

    I already bought the steps so it's a little too late. Maybe I can try to sell them to my friend and buy some new sliders :)

    The tires are actually Nitto Trail Grapplers. It's an MT. I had the Terra Grapplers on stock rims sitting in my garage and I loved those tires too. They aren't as noisy as what I have on right now. I may go back to those when these Trail Grapplers wear off.
