    Ill keep it simple, 5 lugs toyota trucks are ment to be left stock or lowered or slammed, if you want to have a lifted truck get a 6 lug "prerunner" or 4x4 better platform to build on.

    So in other words, drop that bitch

    Ya... I beat the snot out of my '94 5-lug.
    Cranked the torsion bars, slapped on some add-a-leafs from Fabtech, and threw on a set of BFG 31'a and had a blast.

    BUCKLE UP! It makes it harder for Aliens to pull you out of your Truck.
    Lay that Muthu DOWN. Section 6" out of the entire middle of the truck (doors, fenders and bed) then chop the top. [​IMG]

    Slam it back down and paint your wheels white.:cool:

    Lifted 5 lugs seems a little funky to me, Unless Fully long traveled.

    I miss my slammed mini all the time, Great mileage and drove like a fucking Go-Kart!

    I am always tossing the idea around of buying a salvaged base first gen and slamming it.

    My 4x4 SUCKS as a Daily Driver!!!!

    Stick on hood scoop from Autozone.
    Your truck looked way better lowered Ryan. Lifted 5 lugs are...meh. Lowered 5 lugs are pretty bad ass.

    Really?
    I think your truck is badass as is. Definitely one of the most unique on TW. however is was sick lowered too.

    How about you lower it but keep the tires you have on it now! Like an old stadium truck (would post a pic but its a pia on da phone)... hold on
