    Had an awesome time at Hardrock cycle park and Ocala national forest in FL this weekend. Met some great people and had a blast seeing what this stock Tacoma is capable of, even with the very wet conditions.

    Installed the Bilstein 5100 shocks this weekend. Was really easy using the floor jack method to decompress and compress the springs. Installed them at the second notch / 0.65" and love the outcome. Looks perfectly level, but still has a minimal rake to it. Will add pictures of the result soon.

    No, only installed the new shocks. The ride overall feels a lot better. Will install upgraded suspension in the future with about a 2" lift when the funds are available.
