    I bought the Wheeler's Offroad ones. I bought 4, but I'm not using two of them... If you bought 2 from Wheeler's it would end up costing around $17 after shipping. I'll sell my two extra to you for $15 including shipping... :cool:

    Nice, definitely take some pics once it's installed.

    I can't decide whether or not to get new leafs, my add-a-leaf is doing fine.

    The LT part made me laugh. It doesn't matter what suspension you get, you'll always want something better. I've only had mine lifted for 2-3 weeks and already want mid travel!

    LT is what i really want to run its just so damn expensive ill prob have to hold off on that for a while or pick up some decent used parts piece by piece

    i would do an aal but my stock leafs are kinda iffy i wanna replace them and also do the aal at the same time to really make sure they will be what i want and last a lot longer

    I doubt I'll ever go long travel, too much fab work for me. I'll either go mid travel or SAS. I can't decide...

    My leafs were pretty sad, but the add-a-leaf brought mine up to pretty much level with the front. The front sits about .25" higher.

    LOL at bold.
    I'm just joshing you, but LT is too much fab, you'd rather SAS?
    Haha just seemed funny to me:D

    Whoops, I didn't even notice that... :eek:

    I'm half drugged up on pain reliever, so that's my excuse!

    I doubt I'll ever to an SAS. It'll probably get a good mid travel set up, 35's, ARB lockers front and rear.

    I'm kind of the same way. Like I said, mid-travel, 35's, and front and rear lockers will probably be the most for this truck.

    I think it's more of "I did it because I could". Just like engine swaps, it makes you unique and shows your prowess. Same with LT, makes the truck perform better in certain situations.

    MT tacomas with armor look amazing. Plus lockers just make you a machine.

    I'll hopefully have full armor by the end of next year.

    Haha well this is for when I have a new daily driver (hopefully a 2015 double-cab long-bed Tacoma)

    I'll do the supercharger mod once it stops being my daily driver.

    I can't decide if I like tire carriers on the bumper. I'm talking with somebody on here about fabbing up a removable in bed tire mount, that way I can move it when loading stuff in the back of the truck.

    Some day... Some day... Haha

    full armor? are you already lifted? o.o


    this year I might be able to redo my rear suspension, other than that pretty much paying off tent/bedrack/tires/rims.

    2014 I should have my bumpers and lights o.o


    (unless I get my job promo then who knows where this build will lead)

    Uhm, yes I'm already lifted? Haha By full armor I mean sliders, bumpers, and possible skid plates.

    All that's planned for this year is:

    Spare tire
    Sliders
    Tint
    Flowmaster
    Upgraded audio
    BoxRocket Bed Rack
    Line-x'd bed
    Wet OKole's

    And of course random minor mods here and there.

    I wanted different wheels, but all the ones I liked were in 16's or 17's... I couldn't justify the cost of 33's on 16's or 17's over 33's on 15's. I like my choice now :)

    I can't wait for my boxrocket bedrack :drool:

    I know everyone likes wet okoles... but i'd personally just rather buy new seats?

    Yeah, hopefully I'll have one by September...

    I like the stock seats, they fit me perfectly. I want these Wet Okole's. After I saw these I was hooked!
