    Whats up everyone? Im Josh and I recently got an 03 Super Cab TRD w/ 63,000 original miles! Its silver, has a silver Leer top, aftermarket side steps, K&N filter, and an iPod adapter. Other than that it is bone stock and very well taken care of. Im really stoked to have such a nice truck, Ive always wanted a 4 door Tacoma 4x4. Looking for advice on getting 33's under it. And custom tube bumpers. Any help is very appreciated. Thanks.

    Thanks for the welcome guys! Now, What in the hell is a 5100 lift? If im even saying it right! I want 3 inches, so I can get 33's under it. I don't want it to ride like shit. I keep looking at other threads , but just get more confused. Anyone w pics of their 1st gen w/ lift and suggestions would be greatly appreciated and I'll gladly dance at your next wedding.

    Welcome, Josh! Congrats on the truck! I agree with you, the more that is read about suspension, the more confusing it becomes. I've just kinda settled on a kit from a site that's gonna give me 5100s in the front and back. A 5100 lift is a lift using Bilstein 5100 shocks I'm guessing- that's what I'm going for! I just need to figure out if I need new springs or not lol. It's very confusing stuff, but these guys here will definitely set you (and me) on the correct track to tranforming our trucks into beasts!
