    The ride is a little stiffer than stock but nothing ridiculous. To be honest my truck is a pavement princess so I don't have any experience offroad with the lift except maybe some bumpy dirt roads.

    Got my Wet Okoles installed! Took me a solid 4 hours and removed all the seats and installed in my living room. Even managed to not cut myself. :thumbsup:

    Does Wet Okole have an option to put the TRD logo on the seats or did you have to do it somewhere else?

    Wet Okole will put it on for you, they just don't advertise it in their catalog. I assume copy rights and legal stuff. Just call or email and they'll give you a sheet with codes to look at and see which TRD design you like.

    Just checked out your build. it looks perfect man! i have a 2015 and was not sure how big of a lift i wanted to put on it. Seeing yours is the exact size i want, functional, but still useful off road. Cant wait to get started on it! Great job!

    Couldn't figure out what I wanted to do for tail lights so I sold my other set and bought these blacked out DEPO's. Like the almost stock look a lot better.

    Finally moved in the new house. Looking like we're starting a mini Toyota Dealership.
