    Then added 4 inch MaxTrac Spindles with 2inch blocks and a 1.5 AAL and put some 285/70/17 Nitto Terra Grapplers on it.

    Installing a 8 inch Kicker L7. I have alot better SQ than I thought I would and good output running off of the stock H/U. Now I just need to make some cosmetic changes.

    Stinger Roadkill Extreme. I am happy with it so far!

    Looks good. Do not black out the rims. Gunmetal looks great on BSP.

    I agree on the rims. At one time I wanted the Trail Teams wheels. But I actually really love my wheels now. I think you'll always want what ya don't have. If ya had black wheels you'd want gunmetal. Your wheels look sweet.

    Looking at bumpers now. What would the knowledgeable folks of TacomaWorld recommend as the best looking aftermarket bumpers?

    relentless or allpro plate bumpers look the best IMHO. dont' have one, but i like the look.

    Sorry this might be a little late, but how did you like the ride with the spindles? Did you have any rubbing issues with the 285/70/17 tires?

    With spindles the ride is just like stock. There is very slight rubbing, but only when you have the wheels turned while driving in reverse
