Just did mine and it definately along with wheels and tires has the most impact on the looks of the FJ. Congrats!!!

And the ride performance ain't that bad either. This is the way Toyota should have built them in the first place. But then I guess the soccer moms might twist an ankle getting out at the mall. LOL

:cheers:

Nice, I just ordered those today too, the price is definitly right. I'm already lifted with OME heavy but ai wanted something smoother. Looking forward to installing them soon.

I got my Toytec 3" & 285 BFG's on 3000 miles ago & love it. The wife said no Mod'ing a brand new truck( lifting-blacking out- that sort of stuff). She did agree with getting new BFG's. I had the lift & tires put on basicly at the same time & told her the tires made the height difference. She's only 5'2" tall & it's a little hard for her to get in now but she like's it. I guess what you don't know-won't hurt you. What size & kind of rubber are you going to get?

:lol: I still feel kinda guilty (I said KINDA...maybe a spa day for her will cure that, but now I really want that tube bumper from TRDsource!,so maybe a spa weekend)I am pretty sure I want 285's but am still searching on the type since I don't have a w-2 job anymore and don't need it as a daily driver. my choices are mo better..

I have the med OME lift springs but I dont wanna use OME shocks/struts. Anybody try the Bilstein C-513's in the front with OME springs (med)? Like, dislike?

Not sure that would make much of a difference at all except for shock color.
