    Mine is too. I have a quick disconnect which makes it easy to install/remove - I just have to REMEMBER to remove it before pulling in.

    So last Saturday after work I pulled my front coilovers and had a new friend switch out the crappy 13Ē 600lb springs to some ebiach 14Ē 650lb springs. Truck has way less body roll since Iím running with no sway bar, also gained a 1/2Ē of lift with a lot less pre load so win win. Next up is re-gear, add front locker and 35ís this winter. Also have a high clearance rear bumper on order should be installing that early January. My wife says I wonít stop until itís a truggy lol she might be right. Sorry about the pic orientation not sure how to flip it.

    Sorry if this is a continued threadjack...

    Jim previously posted:
    "Mine is too. I have a quick disconnect which makes it easy to install/remove"

    A comment on the CB antenna quick disconnect - I've removed mine.

    People would comment that they could hear me if I was stationary but I would be garbled / difficult to hear if I was moving. I wondered if the mechanical connection of the quick disconnect (movement in its joints causing electrical issues) was the cause for poor transmission while moving. While at Moab I removed the quick disconnect and folks in the group never made any comment that I couldn't be understood / heard clearly.

    If anyone wants this disconnect - it's available. If it works for you - great - but I think it's out of my life.

    Did a little snow bashing with my brother n law and his fj a few weeks ago. Managed to mess up one of my fox rear shocks again. So I finally bought some b110 pís for Half the price of the foxes. They extend an 1.5Ē longer then the foxes so more droop. Trade off is up travel so weíll see. The ride quality feels the same. Also added an RCI 1/4Ē transfer case skid. Picked it up at their new shop in Loveland that place is super nice really cool guys too.

    Quick update, if any of you Toyota guys are planning on ordering from Cbi beware that their lead times are 6 months right now. I ordered a high clearance rear bumper October 8th (when they took my money) and after getting the run around for 4 months I finally canceled it yesterday.

    Thanks for the input Cory but I think Iím going to switch gears (literally) and start the process to run 35ís and wait to do bumpers later. Maybe have something different then all these heavy plate bumpers everyone is selling. Canít wait for May dude!

    Ko2ís are an excellent AT does well in all areas and quiet on the road. I went with km3ís to see what the traction difference is on an MT. I probably wonít have them on for a month or more due to the amount of work required to run 35ís on a Tacoma. Iíve heard good things about the km3 though and will definitely post a review.

    Hereís some tire comparisons: stock 31 to 285 75r16 and then 315 75r16. In case anyone is wondering my plan is to regear to 5.29ís to make up for lost power. I will also have spindles and cam tabs gusseted for the added weight. Then I will trim fender liners and fold in pinch weld to make room. Iím also running aftermarket bump stops which should help. Hopefully I do not have to trim fenders. The weak points will become stock steering rack and cv axles but on 315ís I should be ok. Man this going to be fun
