    Thanks! Ya greatest truck ive ever owned. A bit small, but starts at -37 no probs with no plug in but I do plug in when possible.

    Rubbing is mostly on driver side, and yes stock upper control arms. Ill look into the SPC's, but realistically wont get to it to the spring (which is most likely your summer ha). Thanks again!

    how do you like the general grabbers? I have KO2’s and I’m thinking of getting them when they wear out.

    So I'm original owner and have had a couple sets of ko2s and now my second set of grabbers. The last set of grabbers I got 75K miles and really could have kept going as I was on top of rotation and air pressure. My ko2s I think were more near 60k and they were getting loud as most tires do as they age. Anyway, first impression of grabbers after ko2s is," Wow, these things feel soft and are quiet, they aren't gonna last" Then they go 75k no issues. I did a lot of off- road job site driving back in the day. Building golf courses and running around that kind of site is a good proving ground for truck and tires. I can't tell you enough how many times the big full size trucks were always getting stuck and couldn't go the places I could. So, I'm a fan of the Grabbers over the ko2s mostly for that soft quit ride on the street. They are less expensive but I chose them strictly hoping for a repeat performance.

    You just brought me to my next question. Is the one linked a whole leaf pack? I couldn't tell because it said extra leaf in the option select

    Thank you!

    Sorry about that, I misworded. Yeah this link below is the full kit, with the Dakar leaf pack...you have the option to add a leaf with it in the menu on the side when you're choosing options.

    https://wheelersoffroad.com/catalog...on-system-for-1998-2004-tacoma/category/2881/

    @Wheeler's Off-Road Inc is super responsive so if you need the kit without the full pack I'm guessing (maybe?) you could work that out and just do an AAL, I'm not sure, they could certainly tell ya if you email them.

    Oh okay that makes sense. Thanks so much for the help. Now onto my next dilemma: 882 vs 883?

    I can't find meaningful information on the difference between these two springs. I've found a couple 4runner threads that say the 882's are actually stiffer then the 883's. Go back a hundred pages or so in this thread and folks say the opposite.

    Ultimately I want to run this bumper: https://trail-gear.com/120191-1-kittacoma-rock-defense-low-profile-front-bumper.html

    Weight isn't listed but I can't imagine it's as heavy as some of the plate bumpers folks run.

    No winch. Wheelers recommended the 883 for a double cab v6
