Default Added Bilsteins and rear coil spacer (PICS!)

I know it's been done before, but more examples never hurt! Bilsteins set to 2.1" with a 1" TopGunCustomz rear coil spacer. I wanted to retain a rake to reduce sag when I haul my bike, and other loads. All 4x4's should have came like this from the factory, IMO.

Also purchased a 1.25" RC body lift that is hopefully going on this weekend!

Thanks! I tried to do the bilsteins but ended up taking them to the dealer because the lower strut mount bolts were seized in the LCA. I was hoping they could get them out but they couldn't after over 5 hours of trying. I just ended up having them replace the whole control arms, even though Moog makes a replacement bushing. So looking back, I would have just bought the bushings and put them in myself but I already had so much $$ in the install that it would have been a waste to have them put it back together for me to do all of it!

The rear coil spacers were easy, took 2 hours and that was taking my time!

Haha I'm finding new reasons to go outside just to look at it! Yesterday I went through the drive-thru THREE times just to see the reflection in the windows and hear the exhaust against the building

Looks great. I plan to run the same setup if my 2013 ever comes in! With 35" Toyo all terrains. I won't do the 1.25" BL though. I agree though our 4x4s should sit that high from the factory. The stock height is only half inch over 2wd. You can't visually tell them apart easily anymore other than the badging.
If you get a chance I'd like to see a photo of the front suspension - mainly the CV angles.
