    I am pleased with my setup, Fox 2.5 non-resi fronts, 2.0 non-resi rears, and Light Racing UCAs. I am happy with my decision to not add reservoirs. It would have been overkill for the occasional off road I do.

    After install the ride was perfect for my taste. However, the FJ was significantly nose up with stock rear springs. Fox claims the coil-overs out of the box are set to level the FJ, but that was not the case for my rig. I lowered the front coil-overs to level the car, which made the ride a little soft, probably because the springs are not as compressed. I have a Demello Aluminum bumper, no winch. I plan to alleviate this by lifting the rear 1" with new springs, and dial in the fronts to level and hopefully stiffen up the ride.

    I hope this helps with your decision. Let me know if you have anymore questions.

    How do you like the Fox 2.5 non-resi? I'm looking at doing the same...

    Thanks!

    Hi Saucy,

    I did end up buying those lugs. They look great with my black TRD wheels, but the paint quality is not that great. The black paint will chips off with time.

    I bought these gorilla locks also. They are not extended, but you can't really tell once the wheels are on: http://www.sfxperformance.com/parts/GOR73631TBCB-5.htm

    Hi came across an old post...I just bought some TRD FJ trail team wheels from ebay...They do NOT come with lug nuts. Did you ever purchase the lug nuts you talked about buying in the post? just need to confirm if these will work or not 24 Extended 50mm Toyota OE Stock Factory Wheel Mag Lug Nuts 12x1 5 1 5 Black | eBay
