Default Trik444's 5th Gen Build

Picked up a 2017 TRD Off-Road Premium in Magnetic Grey after my 4th gen was totaled a few months back.

Just over 2,500 miles on the '17 so far and my wife has already started asking when we can pick up a lift and tires. So.....

Mod list ordered and awaiting arrival:
- 295/70/17 Toyo Open Country MT's
- 17" Jet Black SCS F5 wheels
- Radflo 2.5 front coilovers w/ OW valving
- Radflo 2.5 rear shocks w/ OW valving
- Light Racing UCA's
- Metal Tech rear lower arms
- C4 Fab sliders
- Spidertrax
- BMC kit

Should have everything received and installed within the next couple of weeks!

Rest in Pieces!

bummer to hear about the wreck. Glad you are ok and looking forward to the new build!


So Toyo over the Nitto this time? Probably can't go wrong with either,

Thanks Bobby. Honestly, it was a tough decision on the tires. Cooper STT Pro's were also in the running but I wanted to try a 295 series tire for no reason other than just wanting to try something other than the typical 285/70/17 setup.

SCS wheels arrive tomorrow. And I'm looking forward to getting the tires mounted. Now it's just a waiting game on the rest of the suspension components.
