    Bilstein 5100's all corners, AVS aero skin bug shield , Avs ventvisors, Husky x-act fit liners, Extang Trifecta signature series bed cover, TRD shift knob, TRD cup holder inserts, Front eyebrow LED lights with toggle kill switch.
    Had all four installed. Fronts on top setting. I like the look and ride. Handles better then stock equipment for sure. Turns feel tighter. Sits almost even. Maybe 1/4 to 1/2 taller in rear. Had alignment today. Only downside was they could not get 2 lower control arm bolts to break free (damn N.J. salt roads) So only partially done. He said it is not off by much. Rides fine. Will have to get those bolts out some way and replace them when I go back for another alignment. Staying stock tires till they are done. Then going slightly more aggressive and up a size or two. I recommend 5100's

    Dang, looks good. Do you have it on the max height? Have you noticed a loss of MPG?

    Thanks. Max height and really have not noticed much of a difference from norm. I think it is the way they should come from the factory.

    Ok cool. I was thinking about doing this upgrade. I had a Tacoma with the TRD package and I loved the ride. I did a lift on an F150 and it KILLED my MPG.

    Ah, I don't think I'll do the 3/1, I'm just contemplating adding an inch or two to level out the front. The 3/1 was what I did on my F150.
