    Yeah, how many places need balloon tires like that to keep from falling through the "road" surface? :laugh:

    Not to mention if the taco's are anything like the Hilux Top Gear used, then the front suspension needs to be moved forward a few MM to allow the larger front fenders to clear the doors. Without moving everything forward they can't open the front doors. :D

    Lot of work just for lift and bigger tires if you don't absolutely need it.

    Oh, and I bet they have to change the brakes to fit 15" wheels.

    Yeah, but it would still be cool if we had the option to get stuff like that... I would have loved to convert my rear to coils instead of having to buy custom built leafs and still have the shackle hanging down.... I know we can do it all here custom, but come on, if they have a kit and know what springs to use and all of that. It would just be nice.....

    I guess it did ok, but I only had to drive it three times on snowy roads. Really not much data to go on. But, I didn't end up in a ditch if that helps... :)

    Thanks. I am really going to try and remember to take more pics. I usually go out and then go "Damn, I should have gotten out and taken some pics" the camera is on my phone, how hard can it be.....for me, it seems to be hard. But I always have lots of pics of everyone elses trucks or jeeps.
