    Spent yesterday installing some 5100s all around and icon 3 pack Aal. Just got done today getting it aligned at pepboys. Looks legit to me.
    image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

    - 5100 shock set to 1.75 with stock springs
    - tires 275/65/r18
    - wheels rays Volk racing te37 18 x 9, 0 offset
    - grill plastidipped / bezel vinyl wrapped satin black.

    Install was straight forward except having to cut off a spring clamp on the leafs to install the aal pack. Glad I had access to one of these.

    Those LED's are fog light bulbs; I have a set in my fogs and they match my HID's pretty well.

    Why pull and paint if you're using plasti dip ... did mine yesterday and just left them on. It seemed pretty simple although I was scared as all get out the first one

    You have got exactly what we all are looking for. Great lift. Great stance. Mean profile. I am jealous and cannot wait to do similar to mine-after I spend a few grand taking some big old pine trees down in my yard. I personally like 18's so I am a huge fan. How does it steer before the alignment. Have you done a chalk test to see what area of tires are making contact. I am most curious how the alignment goes. I am afraid would need uca's to get the correct alignment with the 1.75 setting. Seems like a drastic change in geometry. Look forward to your next post after alignment. Sweet truck and the perfect paint color.

    Truck not built yet but,
    already bought ,have or on order

    case of 10 oil filters ( change oil my self every 3K ) it is cheap protection as i plan to own it for many years and will put less than 3K ? a year on it .

    lower body side moldings (ebay - painted to match sky silver) Dents from use are one thing but parking lot dents piss me off !

    Just checked covercraft.com, that one is for a 2015 Taco. I also checked my link for Amazon, it brings you to the UV10930SV instead. Hopefully you didn't use my link, I'll get that fixed.

    Finally got my mid/t-casecombo skid installed from @RelentlessFab and the thing is extremely beefy!! Install is very straight forward but having a second set of hands would have made it extremely easier. The skid plate is 3/16 steel and the IFS skid is 1/4 aluminum. Now I don't have to worry about the belly of the truck or hitting my exhaust crossover. My two tips are have a buddy help you and buy a 14mm ratcheting wrench (you'll thank me later). Sorry for the how dirty the skids are in the pictures.

    Yeah, I noticed they mentioned that in the description before I bought them. They are suitable for headlights just not as bright as an HID.

    Thanks man! My truck used for the design and fitment. In January but with school and the weather not being cooperative with painting outside I was just able to get it installed.

    Looks like it's too late to cancel my order. I will have to chance it but it seems like it should be fine. The only difference between 2015 and 2016 is the 2016 has the go pro mount which shouldn't affect the sunshade, right?

    Looks good! Did the exact same thing from Matt Gecko. Need to invest in those locking storage doors. The people living two doors down from me jacked my tie downs right out of my truck in the parking garage. Got the apartment leasing office to review the footage. Confronted them myself, they produced the tie downs. Crazy how absolutely petty people can be
