    What kind of suspension set up do you have?

    Stock?

    Lifted?

    Slammed?

    My opinion: Monroe is garbage.... If you are going to keep your stock ride height. I would go with the Tokicos. They were the original equipment for the TRD-equipped Tacomas. Great ride. Firm but soft.

    You can find these on ebay quite reasonable.

    Take my advise, dont use a k/n filter. They are only good at gumming up your MAF sensor.

    Ditch the K&N, the Monroes will suffice if you do everyday driving without doing any wheeling, mudding etc. Bilstein and Tokicos are worth the extra $$$ if you can fork it out, but the Tokicos are relatively cheap.

    Sambar stag antler shifter, goat roper seat covers, janky campershell I got for free, line-x'd bed, bilstiens, tow package, cracked windshield....c'mon I bounce around in the desert all day, no room for beauty contests...even though I like my truck any way she comes.
    I feel like a high roller....I bought my own set of Bilstiens and we installed them yesterday...I like the ride so far but have not been off road much yet...monday I start the work week again and I will be offroad every day then...I will know more. We found the struts to be a pain in the ass, could not get the lower control arm attachment to match up right at first ... took lots of grunting, the second strut went smoothly....we learned from our mistakes. I guess it would have helped to have all the right tools...we did it in a ranch shop, I swear half the tools were from the early 1900's with wooden handles and all....pretty sweet.
