    I'm putting it on a 2011 4x4, I4 Access Cab. The complete install will include:

    New front coilovers, driver side spacer (to take care of the taco lean), AAL and new shocks in the rear, extended brake lines to the rear, driveshaft carrier bearing drop, and also I will be putting on new UCA's at a later time (when I get them in the mail)

    Ok, so my truck is a 2011 and every bolt I had to take off came off super easy. The sway bar was kind of a PIA, and my front driver side coilover for some reason didn't wanna go in, but overall it was an easy install.

    I'm tackling the rear today, right now it's nose high, (I'll take a picture later) I really didn't expect the lift to be this much, but I'm happy so far. I figure once I do the rear it'll have a slight rake, but more level than it sat stock.

    Oh, and I got a few pictures!

    I ordered a 1/4 spacer not knowing it came with a trim packer.
    I'll probably just put on the OME trim packer.

    Sorry for the pics being upside down..I flipped them here on the site once I noticed it, but I guess it didn't work.

    In case anyone actually reads this..

    Just got done givin her a drive around town. Took me 7 freakin hours to install the aal, new shocks, and extended brake lines in the rear. I swear I used a hammer more than I did my ratchet set.

    I didn't get any driveshaft vibes driving through town 0-50mph, I'll update on what happens when I drive to the alignment shop tomorrow on the interstate.

    I'm going camping for the next 4 days, so I'll post pics and updates on how its going when I get back.

    Well where are the pics? Keep the spacers in case you get a plate bumper & winch. Did you get the 884s or 885s.
    Mine with 885s & Dakars.

    dude this thread is so old. It took me so long to install the lift and I was so frustrated the whole time I didn't even think to photograph anything.
