    I like it, I have 2012 Taco but mine is a Prerunner no real need around here for 4x4. Anyways I like the grill and head lights, def going to do that. What do you think as far as lift? I am thinking spacers at first to get the stance, maybe toytec or more of a lift after awhile. not sure on 32inch or 33 inch tires. Gas mileage is already crazy so prolly wont go over 3 inch.

    Thanks Adam :) one of my co-workers drives an '78 fj40 so i had to!

    Try to stay away from spacers Rob. They'd be ok if you aren't going off-road but they arent the safest things to get lift. Your best bet is to just either get a coilover thats adjustable to what height you want, or get the bilstein 5100 shocks and set it at .85 preload setting with your stock coils and see what you think. If you go the 5100 route you really aren't spending that much more than spacers, especially if spacer cause damage while on your truck. 265 75 16's fit real nice under a minor lift.

    Agreed. Some spacer lifts are so poorly designed, that they even let your shocks bottom out before the bump stops. Causes catastrophic failure of the shocks.

    :woot: Bumper and Sliders are on! Thanks to Nathan and the guys at CBI, they got the bumper and sliders on in about 2.5 hours! Sorry the pictures are hard to see the definition of whats bumper and underbody... I'll have better ones soon im sure.

    First thing I did when I got home was add the 3M grip tape to the sliders.

    I noticed driving it home it felt different. I blame the sliders welded to the frame, feels more solid on corner initiation. I like it :)
