    Hell yeah, they look way better on a 1st Gen than a 3rd Gen....but I am biased.

    I guess they don't see this much red usually. Even the cashier made a comment....:laugh: fresh balance and green truck is good to go. Still haven't resolved the noise from the accessories area.

    Wait, so you had them pull some caster?

    I gladly run a little negative camber to get more caster.

    Everything but the driveshaft.
    Be careful when walking in the woods behind one of the old house places like that. Many had an outhouse somewhere out back. You don't want to fall in that hole.

    I had them get it in spec. It's always driven great that way and the tires like it. I don't get specific with them.

    Definitely. I'm bummed that the Toyota dealer didn't fulfill my order when that TRD 40th anniversary sale was happening. I ordered a set of these for ~$400.

    They didn’t fulfill those orders? Not gonna lie, I kicked myself for days when I saw them on the 40th sale.

    The big hesitation I see with 1st gen guys and these wheels is backspacing. My stock wheels had 4.15” backspace. These have 4.59”. It’s less than half inch... My tires rub frame at full lock but they’re 285s. I bet if I got a skinny 33 I wouldn’t have a problem.

    The backspace shouldn't be the drawback. The downside is width. They’re 7” wide.

    Got around to installing the new caddy horns I got from @BartMaster1234. He makes a killer product. I was impressed with the wiring harness.

    Had to get creative with the mounting to fit them all. They are bigger than I was expecting.

    Hopefully they don't block too much airflow from my radiator. I think it turned out good though. Stoked with the sound.

    they didn’t fulfill my order on those wheels because their website gave me too much of a discount.

    the backspacing is fine for me, I’m running 255’s.

    Looks great. Old school quality is hard to find today. @BartMaster1234
