    Set at .85" ride is great. next is some new tires...not sure what kind or size. I'd like a nice stance and look. Thinking of going with an all terrain an inch or so bigger and wider. what do you guys suggest? I'd also like to keep my odometer accurate, is it worth getting it recalibrated?

    I love my 265/75 Duratracs. I'll let you take a ride in the truck if we both go to a meet over the summer!

    Front 5100s at 1.75. Rear TSB. LoRider tonneau cover. OEM bed mat. OEM bug deflector. Illuminated 4x4 switch. In cab AC outlets. 400W anytime. EGR in channel window visors. Black badges. Rear weathertech liners.
    It looks like you got as much lift at 0.85" as I did setting mine at 1.75". Interesting. Truck looks great by the way.

    had duratracs on my 1st gen, i dont need anything that heavy or aggressive even though i liked them a lot. these duratracs have to go because i slide everywhere but im liking the 19-21 mpg so i may stick with the same size all terrains

    my rear wheel wells were 1.25" to 1.5" higher than my front so .85" was perfect for me. i have heard different model tacomas will need different heights to be level so that may be why. That or the 1" is harder to see because of the pictures

    im also thinking of taking my step bars off, they came with the truck but i dont use them, my g/f who is 5'8" doesnt use them either. they look good but are just kind of useless.

    I didn't think you could get the Odometer re-calibrated. Can anyone confirm this?
