    3" lift, Bilstein 5100s, with OME coils All pro prerunner style front bumper Xrc8 winch
    Bought this Taco in May. Was a jeep guy before, had 3 jeeps. Decided to switch over.

    98 2.7L, 216k miles, not sure what lift it has on it, was told it is a 3", there are coil spacers upfront, and blocks on the rear leafs.

    This is what it looks like today.

    Grey wire MOD, deck plate, diff breather MOD, 2nd gen. OME 883# on Tundra 5100's, OMD custom 3" leafsprings, rear shock relocation, Ivan Stewart TRD rims w/285/75/16's, '02 bumper MOD, Famous Fabrications sliders , LED interior/exterior lights, bed bar, Custom tube bumper, Old school KC day lighters,Red Ring 8" HID flood, Kenwood vhf 2M.. umm some other shit I'm forgetting right now

    You're off to a decent start with the allpro bumper & the addition of a winch, I think your next MOD should be to lift that truck proper like thru suspension, & it doesn't have to cost an arm & leg, dump the block & add 2 Chevy truck springs per side for a 3" lift in rear, get some Bilstein 5125's from DSMS for the rear & some 5100's for the front with some Eibach 3" lift coils for the front, you could do all this for about $600 & change...:)

    this is looking nice got the same truck near the same miles. When you plan on rebuilding the engine or has it been done already? Also i agree with 4WD you need to do a suspension lift get rid of the blocks in the rear
