I know you and I had spoken about this a couple weeks ago. And from everything that I've read and heard since then it would seem that the 4.88's are the way to go with either the 33's or the 35's.

This made me laugh. This is why it's important to know how tall your rig is, whatever that rig may be. lol

The back of the trailer was bent apart like an oval. So we were trying to get the ends weighted down and jack up the middle to close the gap so Travis could weld it back together. :wrench::thumb:...

I don't need to go super fast. A top speed of 75 or so would actually make me happy. I just want torque going up hills. Which is apparently something that Toyota left out of the Tacoma design...

The stock gears and 33's are horrible, in my opinion. Going up 70 is a nightmare. Just driving around town is fine though, I guess.

If I can manage to get my truck re-geared before I need a new set of tires, I'd like to go with 35's. With an auto, would the 4.88's still work well…?

Post Install Thoughts

So I think it's worth noting that these Bilstein 5100's don't have a snowball's chance in hell of fitting on a stock Tacoma. I've got a 4" drop bracket lift on the front. And these 5100's not only...

Post up when you get this done. I.E. Where you get the work done, where you got the parts, etc. I'm wanting to do the 4.88's on my "03 as well. I'd like to know what I'm in for.

The ride is pretty good. Kind of stiff though. I think those Tundra coils on a Tacoma is like a sport tuned suspension for some kind of sports car. The thing doesn't wobble at all, and hugs the road...

I'd be down to go play. If I can get my front suspension fixed tomorrow.

EDIT: I did get my suspension working yesterday, but I'm afraid I'm out for this run today. Sorry guys.

So I spent 5 long exhausting hours installing these 5100's and Tundra coils. And it's all wrong. The truck sits lower now than it did before. It looks like it's nose diving. It's riding on the...
