    I've been wanting to do the front end swap too. Secretly wish a dear would run out in front of me and insurance could help with the swap lol. Is that bad?

    Dude, I have eibachs in the mail, and 5100s & an Icon AAL sitting in my garage! Pretty stoked to install once the springs are in. your truck will be filthy once you get those. heads up, toytech finally has eibachs in stock again. THey been on back order for the past little while.

    Haha I too am in the process of balancing student loans and trying to put my tacoma together. I feel you man. I only got the eibachs from toytech. Got the Bilsteans last month from wheelers, but probably shoulda gone with DSM. Then I got the Icon Progressive AAL from Intense Motorsport Maui. They had just got a shipment in. just buying things little by little. Did you retrofit your own lights?

    Nope but I can tell you the steps haha

    1. Wash entire bumper and let completely dry
    2. Sand down chrome and plastic if you wish
    3. Re wash and let dry
    4. Apply primer 2-3 good coats of decent primer I used rustoleoum. Let dry
    5. Apply 3-5 coats of whatever paint you desire letting each coat dry for At least 15 minutes.
    6. Take pictures and post it on TW
