    What about the Allpro Expos? Or any other suggestions for about 2.5 to 3 inch lift in the back with my cap?

    I had expos and even those sagged with my shell. You are better off getting a custom pack from Alcan or Deaver. They can build exactly to your height/weight requirements

    You did see it for sale. It needs a lot of work (all upholstery, all gauges, and a outboard).

    This morning, 60,000 miles service.
    Replaced engine oil, oil filter, air filter, rear and front diff. oil, ATF, engine coolant, brake fluid, steering fluid, spark plugs.
    Emptied the oil catch can
    Cleaned radiators and pre-cleaner/snorkel, MAF sensor and throttle body air-intake.
    Truck is running great after more than 3 years of rough use, 90 % off-road, tons of dust and mud.

    All-pro standards. Best pic I could find with it loaded down. Tent with camping gear. The tires are 285/75r16. I have about 2” of lift in the front. Unloaded it sits about 1 1/2-2” rear high. If you are looking for 3” with your cap, save a few more pennies and get the Deaver u402’s, probably stage 2 or 3.

    2.5" OME lift, 1.25" wheel spacers, 16" trd anthracite wheels wrapped in 265/75/r16 duratracs, tyger tonneau cover, plus a flew other odds and ends. More to come.
    I have all pro expos with a camper shell and they haven't budged an inch. I also have an aftermarket steel rear with a high lift and full sized spare in the back. Still no sag. Just my experience

    Installed my extended brake lines from @TSmoove today, pedal actually feels a little bit firmer now.

    Finished removing the plastidip on the camper shell windows from previous owner, mirror privacy tint should be in tomorrow.

    The windows on the shell are stained, so the mirror won’t be as “mirror”, it’ll look just dark which is nice

    Added puddle lights to my 2015 Sport. Night mode on my phone makes them look really blue, it’s just a crisp white. They only come on with the dome light when it’s on the “door” position. They also fade like the dome light.

    Living between two countries Thailand and USA/ Los Angeles. Its been hard to justify spending money on my Stock 2013 Tacoma that I seldom drive (26.000 miles on it) here in Los Angeles.
    Well, Got bored with it and bought new wheels/tires and a bed cover, pop lock this week and I am looking for a cool looking roof rack to set it off.
    Anyone here in So Cal Have something for sale?

    Those are by far the best wheels for this color truck. If my PM had lower miles I would have those wheels. In late 2015 I tried my best to find your exact truck new in an access cab with zero luck. I then waited for and bought the new 2016 Sport access cab. After 5.5 years, and 25k miles, I sold the 16 and bought a used 12 PM access cab, with alot more miles on it, so it is now just a budget build. No regrets but I sure wish I could have found a truck like yours new. I just waited to late to start searching. You have an awesome looking rig. 2nd gen is the best gen (to date).
