    Got my hi lift mounted today. I have had a loc rac sitting in the shop for a few years, decided to finally put it to use. I also rerouted my diff breather relocate. Good thing too, the clamp holding the hose onto the hose bib on the diff had broke. Put higher quality stainless clamps on top and bottom, should last a bit longer now. I got pics I'll upload them later.

    IMO, one of the best looking trucks on here. Might be stealing some ideas. Keep it up.

    Not that I'm anybody, but a clean, neat, slightly modified taco beats those extreme tacos hands down anyday of the week. Your taco is one that can be driven on and off road and look good doing both and doesn't get 5 mpg's. I want this one to look similar to yours. My Leer 100xq is en-route as we speak. Installed a K&N intake and took off my stock mud flaps so far. A little more to go but then I've only had it about a month. As far as the lift and tire size, if it was mine, I wouldn't add anymore. I've had 33's and 35's before on various trucks and Jeeps and thats why I'm now driving a different truck. I'm all about practicality.

    No offense to anyone else on TW. Just my cent and a half.

    Hey, how loud are those Toyo's on the road?

    Really appreciate it. :thumbsup:

    They aren't too bad. It was a noticeable difference coming from the rugged trails, but quieter than the BFG KM2s I had on my old truck.

    Did you have to order anything else other than your coils, shocks, and aal? Not too knowledgeable about suspensions.

    Nope. I got the OME kit from toytec. Its the one with out the dakars. I would recommend UCAs though. My alignment is pretty bad. I am going LR, just haven't ordered them yet.

    They'll assemble the fronts for you now too, $100 more. I need to get new uca's as well. Headstrong has the best price for the LR's from what I've found:cool:

    Right! I would recommend having them put the coils together. Those spring compressors are sketch. I need to get my shit ordered, but my Dad said something the other day about getting me UCAs for my birthday, which is next week. So I should probably hold off.
    Hopefully I'll be making a trip to Reno this weekend.

    Thanks! I would say weigh your options on what you need. By cap I'm assuming you mean a tonneau cover. Those are going to help with fuel mileage. But hinder what you can put in your bed big time. I got mine mostly for my dogs, but its nice to camp out of too. Some ppl say a shell will hurt your mileage, I didn't notice any difference. The shell is about double the cost of a tonneau, so take that into consideration as well. If you do decide on a shell, make sure you get exactly what you want. I didn't get the reinfircement and rails for a roof rack, and I wished I had.

    I really appreciate your insight into my dilemma of shell vs tonneau. With the amount of use I give my bed, bmx bicycles/camping/fishing/lumber/traveling...etc, I'm pretty decided on the shell...it's just going to be deciding what brand/model I would like to go with. I know I want one that levels off with the cab, side windows that open preferably and a flush mount to the side of the bed, however I haven't thought of any of the other options you were talking about yet...
