    I've been using this one for a little over 4 years and highly recommended it. Only had to replace the batteries once. Backlit display is a nice bonus.

    Just picked up my new Tacoma this week, put new wheels and tires on it today and have some vibration, hoping discount tire can balance them out

    Look for a tire shop that offers "road force balancing." I'm not an advocate for Discount Tire, despite them being a sponsor on here, as one of their "floor jack jockeys" caused several thousands in damage to one of my cars a few years ago. Their tires prices are cheap, but so is their quality of service. Many have had issues with Discount Tire improperly balancing tires on here including me.

    Have you looked into RoadMaster Active Suspension? I have had mine for 3 years now. Been very happy with the performance.

    Many new tacos have flat rear springs even with nothing in the bed and no gas. It’s not as horrific as the gear ratios toyota puts in the automatic transmission, but definitely not one of their strong points. Your numbers look fine. Your springs look like, well toyota springs. I love my OME medium dekars, and it’s hard to get closer to OEM than OME!

    A flat gray (whatever Ford's version of cement is) new Ford Bronco next to that OV-10 would be even cooler ;)

    Here in California, our state firefighting agency uses those OV-10s for aerial firefighting command aircraft (what they call an Air Attack). They're white with red and black accents. The white truck would look cool next to that, too.

    hah; good one.

    i just got a bit concerned at the amount of flat in the springs. wasn't sure if it was a pending catastrophic failure. i think i'm headed for an additional leaf & some sumospring bumpstops in the next few weeks. my blood pressure is starting to get back to normal.

    thanks

    in all honestyi never heard of them. so it's fairly similar to a horizontal shock? i gotta study up on them but it looks like another option.

    thx

    Had my oil changed today. Oil and filter was changed 1k miles before due so the maintenance light hasn't even turned on yet. Its better I had it done now because I'm going off to college here soon and won't have much access to the truck until december.

    I didn't either until a TW member sent me the info about them. I pull a pop-up several times in the summer and we pack all kinds of stuff in the front bin for a week of camping which gives it a fair bit of tongue weight. Adding the RMAS made pulling the camper more manageable and the spring are adjustable if your load changes.
