    bought my taco about a year ago now. after looking for a clean low miles v6 for a long time i finally found it. had just over 50k on it and the best part(my opinion) was that it already had fabtechs 6 inch lift kit, which was going to be my first upgrade. the truck is in awesome condition and i couldn't wait to start putting my own touches on it.

    first things first, it really needed tires!! the bfg m/t's that it had were worn out bad. i spend a lot more time driving in the snow, going up mt hood to board, than in the mud so i switched to some bfg a/t. 37/12.5r17

    next i had some repairs to do. as a lot of you may know, this lift kit can be rough on the upper ball joints and wheel bearings and mine had been no exception. so it was replacement time.

    you know i get asked about the ride quality of the lift a lot and really it rides really nice!!! they make a very good product and compared to my friends stock 04 taco i would even say it rides just as nice if not better. people are always surprised when they ride with me that a lifted truck feels so smooth:D

    yeah, have never really been a fan of body lifts. in fact when i bought it i planned to pull it out but i fell in love with tire size which wouldn't fit with out so i decided to keep it through the first set and make up my mind when it came time to replace them again. but i will be keeping it because it sits so nice, gets lots of compliments, and like i said earlier it rides awesome so i dont see the point in down sizing:D

    upgrade time!!!!! removed the fabtech aal and 5" blocks.
    [​IMG]
    installed 5" lift springs from all pro off road:D
    [​IMG]
    what an awesome improvement!!!!! smoother ride, more flex and reduces axle warp. these things just soak up everything.

    Im jealous! haha

    I hate that they discontinued the Fabtech lift for the 1st Gens. Thats great that your spending money on things that improve the truck first, rather than jumping on aesthetically pleasing parts and running into trouble down the road.

    Rep to you.
