    2in AAL and Bilsteins all the way up. I know people frown upon it. But the ride isn't bad at all. Much better than the four leaking corners I had originally.

    Welcome! Great looking truck, man! I actually love the look of the Sport rims on there. Not too shabby.

    I used to wish they did, but I was behind two Tacomas today at a stoplight. Dude on the left had the LED tails and dude on the right had one without. The LED tails looked even more pink than the non-LED. I think I'll stick with my non-LEDs for now.

    As you pointed out later on, the difference will be minimal.

    Just keep in mind your speedometer will be off, too and it will likely be a little bit more drastic of a difference. If you have a GPS, I would take a spin and clock yourself just so you know where you are.

    Love that look! Might have to lift mine of these days.

    Did you have the truck brand new? If so, how does it ride now compare to how it did the day you drove it off the lot?

    I love the ride my truck has right now and would be hesitate to change it whatsoever.

    I'm putting my front 5100's in this weekend, I put the rears in already, them alone mad a pretty big improvement over stock ride quality. The rears are a little more firm but they feel like they plant the truck to the ground and less roll in turns Sharp jarring bumps are less noticeable, overall I love them, can't wait to put the fronts in.

    No man I didn't buy it new,but I have put close to 40k on it. And like I said above the ride is stiff. But some of my previous cars have been 240's, Rsx's,few Lexus's and they were all slammed the 240 was on the frame if more than 2 people rode in it. So compared to those it's like a Cadillac. It's nothing you couldn't daily. It is much more responsive now.

    Man I love you truck everytime I see your sig I just wanna trade you :cool:
