    The only time a sway bar will limit vehicle handling will be during emergency evasive maneuvers. By that point your tires have probably already rolled onto their sidewalls & your front end is understeering into the problem anyway. Some fallacies exist wherein people claim the accident won't be covered. This isn't the case for speeding or window tint, yet it's somehow extended to apply to a sway bar. Could you be dropped from your carrier after? Sure, after ANY claim for that matter. It's ultimately your choice. Our trucks were designed to perform best (safest) with OEM size tires, stock bumpers & OEM spring rates. And yet what's the 1st thing people do? Change those items without using such false logic as claims coverage.

    I like these alot. Any chance you could measure the widest part of the side pieces ? I have an AT Habitat and am curious if it will fit underneath its overhang.

    Do you like the bumper? If so, who cares if it's a knock off.

    Made some hefty upgrades to the Tacoma this week...

    Front End:
    OME 887 Coils
    Bilstein 5100's at 0 clip
    Toytec .5" Spacer for driver side
    Toytec .25" Spacer for passenger side
    SPC UCAs

    Spidertrax 1.25" Wheel Spacers
    Icon Sway Bar relocate

    Rear End:

    Bilstein B110 Extended 5100's
    U-Bolt Flip Kit
    Superbumps Bumpstops with custom spacer Spidertrax 1.25" Wheel Spacers

    After settling, I've gotten about 3.5" up front and 2.75" in the rear. Measures out to .5" of rake.

    The other Tacoma I'm parked next to has a 2" block lift, for reference.


    Still sitting in the parts box:
