That's the Richer Tacoma I saw on DR. You know how I feel about the bedsides, but a cool truck overall. Moved it to a better section for you...I'm bored too :rolleyes: Any action shots?

Bigger tires for sure like you mentioned on DR and a new front bumper. Other than that its a well put together rig.

What is the difference in spring under vs. spring over on the rear axle?

Benefits? Negatives?

Yeah axel wrap is a big factory. Plus if it had leaf over with 62's it would look like a funny car. lol Even with it leaf under the driveshaft had to be extended.

Well what sux is they come with brackets for the factory bumper to cover. So it had to be cut off.

Paint and tires will be next though.

Hmm, I thought I had replied in this thread saying something about these rear shackles like... "not like it's an original design or anything" and was gonna edit it cause it kinda came out sounding like I said Richer's design was unoriginal which was not my point at all, I meant the basic idea of a long shackle with the pivot mount up above the frame rail with the spring down below as is the general design on older tacomas and toyotas for long travel leaf spring set-ups was obviously not a new idea.

Richer's design is obviously very original because they were **one of** the 1st ones to do that set up on a new tacoma (**edit** maybe not 1st forgot about Marco's truck) and I know from making mine after that it is very tricky making it work since the framerails are in the way and a completely different shape.

My apologies if it came out that way. Guess a Mod must have beat me to it and deleted it.
