    Looks good, I think. I can't really tell what the stance actually looks like because of the distortion from the pictures and the angles you used...

    Looks great! Chrome gets no love around here, but I really like it with your BSP paint! What size tires, what type of lift, and did you have to do any tricks (spacers or inner fender cutting) to get the tires to fit? Also, are those wheels from the T|X Pro?

    Trimming: (havent cut yet, but it rubs on the fender near the cab mount in reverse, only rubs passenger side cab mount in reverse also. when go up my driveway too fast it rubs these areas as well) my caster is at 1.4 will get it aligned again next week and tell the tech to put caster at 2.8++ that should alleviate some rubbing issues. letting it rub for now so i know where it needs to be trimmed, then will trim if needed after my 2nd alignment

    That looks really sharp and I like your wheel choice.

    I've got the stock, identical twin to yours and when I look at the pictures of your taco and I look at mine, yours looks like the twin brother that took steroids and worked out in the gym and mine looks like the twin brother that was gay. :D

    i dont mind the chrome... gives it some contrast vs it being all black.
    its your truck, do what you want

    i wouldnt mind having the front all black though, but i rather have my elocker and some chrome vs the appearance advantage of a sport pkg.

    Nicky,
    That is the exact lift I have sitting in the garage, ready to go on in a couple of weeks. Did you do the lift yourself? If so, any issues, things to look out for? I installed the rear brake lines today. I want to keep the sway bar tho, mainly because I drive highway a lot and 75+ and want to ensure I keep the handling. I'm doing my own with a couple of friends so I'm hoping for no surprises. Any special tools required or anything I might need to know I'd appreciate a heads up. Thanks. Your truck looks sharp!

    How were the UCA's to replace and why did you remove the sway bar, personal choice or did you have to????

    Holy cow, did you really just say you were on dial up? I mean Damn!!! I didn't know dial up even existed anymore. :rolleyes:

    Now all you need to do is change that grill and put a TRD Supercharger on it and you'll be all set. :D

    Mark,

    i did the lift myself, yes sir, its pretty straight forward if you have any mechanical ability or worked on cars before. i didnt have any issues except when installing the rear leaf packs, a helping hand would have been nice as they are not extremely heavy (they're still pretty heavy) but trying to hold them up for a few minutes and trying to align the holes to put the bolts in.. it gets pretty fing heavy. it would behoove you to take some advil before and after the install. i have 2.5 degree axle shims with slight vibration from 7-10mph (i had this when it was stock though so i duno) and above 60+mph i get some vibes, i probably should have gotten the 3.0 degree, im gonna do the center bearing drop in the near future to see if that helps first before i go tearing down the rear again

    i had the front shocks and coils pre assembled when i ordered them, so it was a direct swap with the stock. very simple, best 100 dollars extra ive ever spent.
    i removed the front sway bar because it was hitting, or really close the lower spring perch mount of the new OME set up. i rarely take the the truck over 60+mph, i have a car and motorcycle for that, and i wanted more articulation/stability while off road

    upper control arms were pretty straight forward as well. heres my write up for the UCA, should help you out (WATCH THE YELLOW WIRE!!!!!!!)
    My UCA write up clicky

    i have the rear extended brake lines they are not installed yet. ive left the rear brake line bracket un attached where it connects to the axle for the time being for more slack till i get the stainless ones on (didnt have an extra body to push the brake pedal for me to bleed the lines when i did the leaf packs)

    if you need any help feel free to ask
