    Hey all, been lurking for a long time (great resource) and now I'm ditching the '91 SR5 I've had for a decade (275,000!) and buying a used new gen, I have two picked out but have a tough decision to make.

    Two rigs, both Silver '07 Doublecab V6 4X4 w/ Sport Package, the diferences:

    One is a shortbed, 7k more miles than the other, $3k less than the other.

    Other is longbead, lower miles (7K), Snugtop canopy+yakima rack (which I want either way) , and, here's the kicker, a 2" upper coil spacer EZ Ride Suspension lift by Tuff Country installed by LesSchwab plus alignment.

    If not for the 2" level kit, I'm all in on the long bead. Less miles, long bead w/ canopy and roof rack for 3k more is worth it imo. The leveling kit was put on by the current owner and has only been on the truck for roughly 10k miles (currently has 79k miles), think that's short enough time that I can just remove it and still sleep soundly?

    Thanks in advance for your opinions,

    -NCTL
