    Whatsup TW! I just picked up a 05 TRD DC for a deal. It currently has a leveling kit , 265/75/16 Toyo open country's and 16x? ultra motor sports wheels and a flowmaster exhaust. Its a solid truck and I have been wanting a taco forever but couldnt afford it (till now) and they're hard to come by in Germany :annoyed:. Well for now my wife probably wont let me do too much but I'll see what i can squeez out of her :cool:. I will be in Colorado springs come august!! So ill be searching for trails out that way.
    -In the future i'd like to ditch the spacer and go with the OME kit with add a leaf and possibly 5100's in the front and 5150's in the back. I guess its something kinda diffrent.
    -Some blacked out head lights wuld be nice and some HID's.
    -planning on rattle caning the valance and rear bumper tommrow
    -afe cai
    -spidertrax spacers
    -sliders
    -upgraded uca's
    -wet okole's

    I got it all mapped out all thats left to do is to beg the wife haha . Tread easy

    Sweet thanks for the input 721.
    I've been checking out the headlight mod a lot but not so much of the HIDs beacuse its a little too expensive for me rite now haha. But thats a good starting point when I decide im ready for them!

    yeah. i hear you. i think i’m going to try and make both a winter project. i could just throw some HID bulbs in, but i would blind other drivers and it’s illegal.

    Better all around. Very slight increase in body roll that you may or may not notice on road in high speed sharp turns (if you don't try to drive a lifted truck like a sports car no problem). Smoother ride on & off road with only one shock & spring responding to a bump or dip instead of both. Better flexing.

    Yea the weather here is wierd too but i want to black them out before i ship the truck. If i was staying over here it would be no problem because all these little bmw's and audi's have some kind of bright ass lights and blind you like none other on the autobhan lol.

    Nice, i just sold my tj for this truck :kona: so the roll wont bug me at all. Soounds like ill be taking that guy off, well once i properly lift it that is haha.
