    First thing is first. I was going to start my bobbed bed this weekend but need to get it running 100% first.
    When i start it up it will run fine, sometimes it stumbles a bit on idle. when i rev it up it boggs out like its not getting fuel, however if i drive it down the road it runs fine. ONLY acts up when its reved up but drives fine down the road with a load on it???. I got bank 1 system lean code.
    Replaced spark plug wires and plugs with no change, # 3 cylinder has a larger spark plug in it ( my guess someone stripped it and tapped next plug size... yeah i know:confused:) but it works i guess.
    cleaned maf sensor and put a new filter in it.
    still does it bogs/chokes out when reved around 3k but will clear up if reved higher than 3k

    Second problem: Dam this thing rides rough compared to my 4runner! i feel every bump. dropped air pressure to 35 pounds all around made it slightly better. Bodylift make a terrible ride?

    Lastly front end squeaking when suspension is worked.. Sway bar bushings?? if so off it comes

    If you just attach pics to your message it will use thumbnails. If you post photos to a hosting site like photobucket and link the image then it will display them larger.

    Good looking truck, sub'd for the build.

    I wish I could answer your questions, but I don't know anything else you can do (besides what you have already done) for the engine problem. As far as the lift. I'd guess 3 inch body lift and maybe the 5100s are adjusted for a lift as well :notsure:

    But one question. You said you're going to bob your bed, but it looks like your bed rack just barely fits in the bed you have now. Seems like if you bob your bed, you may be "bobbing" your rack as well. just my $.02

    Thanks guys, and yeah i was going to bob it but decided not to, and just build a nice rack, we are going to sleep in the bed this summer when i get the tent so she talked me into keeping the bed stock length. as for the motor running bad i got it figured out, there was a loose coil wire where the coil harness plugs into #3 coil:cool: runs great now.
    as for the suspension as far as i can tell now it has 3 inch body lift
    stock front coils on bilistiens and a 1inch top spacer, rear is add a leaf with stock pack, stock shackles bilistein shocks, For now...:D
