    check to see how many leafs are on the rear spring b4 you bring it home. if there are 3 total, ask them to replace them with the rear TSB springs. Then buy some Bilstein 5100 shocks for all 4 corners, have the fronts set at .85 or lift and you will have a nice, smooth ride with a stock "rake" look.

    if the rear springs are ok (4 leaf springs) and you still want some lift, it seems like most guys go with a 1.5" add a leaf (AAL) and set the front 5100's at 1.75

    both of these options will give you a good ride without messing with drive angles and CV shafts and control arms.

    i also suggest getting the color matched grill surround (get the TRD SPORT) and buying a nice grillcraft grille insert and an old FJ landcruiser emblem up front

    Totally agree. Just got my 2010 about a month ago, and I can't even see the LCD screen with my polarized sunglasses on; lol.
    Where do I get a dash kit for a new system? I've never dealt with car stereos before.
