    I got 'em. They came with my truck.

    I have a 4 cylinder with an allpro bumper and I think the springs they come with are too stiff (650 lb).

    I've never driven a stock Tacoma but I don't think would be much of an improvement besides being beefier...

    Mine are rusting on the body a little bit...

    They are rebuildable, and people have ridden them for a very long time without rebuilding (don't quote me, but I think 100k miles).

    Corrosion does happen. Its important to spray them down once in a while with HD silicone lube.

    I've had 2.5s on my 06 for about two years now and I wheel the hell out of the truck and I love them.

    I have the SAW 2.0s on my '09, I love 'em, great on the trail. I have nothing to compare them to other than the stock TRD OR suspension but I like the SAWs more if that helps.

    Rebuildable: Yes. Last a while: Yes.
