    I have the same exact truck but it is still completely stock. I absolutely love the look of your truck. Is it lifted? I want mine to look as good as possible without having to lift it. Any suggestions?

    Just got some new shoes for the truck, went with a little less aggressive tire for better DD feel..... so if someone is looking for some new 265/75/16 tires let me know!

    WeatherTech rubber mats,
    I was skeptical about the 4" lift with the maxtrac but your ride looks great. did you do the icons in the rear or the front? how does it ride? stiffer or like factory?

    Thanks for the compliment, I have the icons in the front and the rear with the front preload as low as possible for no lift from the coils just the spindles and the 1.5" ad a leaf in the rear and the truck drives great on and off the road

    None yet, want to add 3-4 inch spindle lift
    Hey man nice truck! I just got an access cab TRD Sport and I like the look of yours! Have you heard anything good or bad about either the 3.5" CST Spindle kit or the 4" Camburg Spindle kit? Ive been eyeing those two for my truck...

    Thanks for the compliment. I have not heard much about the two. For me it was all about the price that's why I went with the maxtrac spindles. I might be parting out my truck here in the near future........
