    Huge thanks to the folks here in Tacoma World that take the time to do the detailed DIY's. With pictures, videos, mega threads of do's and dont's I was destined to succeed! Wheelers had taken care of my lift needs and answered any last minute question, they're good folks over there.

    Since all the stars aligned just right, I was going to get a jump on the project by getting a few daylight hrs of work in Friday evening. Rushed around to gather up the tools, jack and stands, tune the radio and grab a beer.

    Wheels off, a quick survey of the situation and I dug in. A quick brake pad swap on the drivers side to get started... the first neighbor shows up, we have a beer. Swap the pads on the other side, two more neighbors arrive, we have a beer. I start to pull the skid plate to access the sway bar brackets, it's dusk and getting cool. Aother neighbor shows and we drag out the sunflower heater. We all had a beer while warming up. Well, I didn't get too much farther after that. So much for getting a jump on it. At least the brakes are done.

    So the Tacoma also works as a coffee table, who knew. Off to the right our cat is phcking a rabbit, literally. I couldn't get the pic before the rabbit figured out what was going on and bolted.

    We hurried though the process, my head was pounding and my helper had soccer later; we have no "during" pics. It's at the tire shop getting an alignment now, will post up some after pics soon. Here's one at tire touchdown. Billies @ 0 with 885's and Billies with Wheelers progressive three pack.

    Looks good, other than using the Taco hood for a bar. What you never heard of a coaster?

    Thanks for the comments! Yes, those are indeed graham cracker Scooby snacks; they go great with beer. I'm a trail builder, the pink tape is for marking new trail. Our house is covered in beads, friends from the swamp like to bring boxes of them when we have our spring crawfish boil.

    In about 10k miles the ol'girl will be getting some new shoes, Lookin' real hard at the 2011 FJ wheels and 265/75/17's. Happy to report no driveline vibs or funky quirks. I was a little suprised at the 3" of lift up front, I know it will settle some but I was thinking it would be about 2 1/2 and come down to 2 eventually... oh well, looks good.

    Front went from 20.5" to 23.25"
    Rear 22 to 24.5"
