Thank you. I have noticed with the larger hills it takes more time to get going but nothing I wasn't expecting. In my opinion it can still gitty up if I need it to. I am waiting on a part to be able to adjust the tire size through the jscan app and look forward to see how it changes the shifting. Right now i'm getting 16 mpg with my commute to work. Around town im around 14.5.

Replaced headlights and fog lights with Oracle LED bulbs. Also through in the pre- runner amber lights.

That looks awesome! The leveling kit makes a HUGE difference.

I’m installing a leveling kit on mine this week after putting on 315/70r17’s. Did you notice any difference in ride or anything else with the leveling kit?

Nothing huge. I noticed the steering getting more “loose” and I am planning to call the dealer and see if I can get them to change out from the aluminum to the black steering box. From what I understand that makes a huge difference.

What state are you located in that tint on your windshield is legal. I’ve never heard of it.

I’m in California. It’s not legal, but the clear tint on the windshield makes a world of a difference.
