    New shocks & coils from a 2011 or 2012, it will ride like butter plus they are roughly $100 in the B/S/T section usually.

    Tacoma is stock and staying that way, Pickup is TBA as of now.
    I keep about 35lbs in my Silent Armors, it seems to ride fine but you really can't ask for a plush ride out of a truck. But compared to the older Fords I drive, these trucks ride like a Cadillac!

    Try the chalk line test to get the pressure "perfect" and then lower it a few pounds. You can try some 2011/2012 shocks. You can try some 5100 shocks @ stock setting.
