    Looks great! I am getting some Bilstein 5100's for Fathers day and I have been going back and forth between .85 and 1.75. Your pics made me decide on .85. That is the perfect look with stock rear.

    I just purchased some TRD Pro grey wheels and I am thinking about KO2's. How do you like yours?

    Thanks! Everything I've read on these forums say that unless you want to raise the rear as well, the .85" is your best best. Here's a better picture of the side profile to show the "level-ness" a little better. I agree, it looks perfect! Love the KO2s so far. They give that aggressive look I want and don't sacrifice much. Only drawback is they are slightly louder than the stock 265s that came with my truck but not a deal breaker by any means. Post some pics of your Runner when it's done!

    You look perfect at .85! That is what I am looking for. I thought about 1.75 and 1" rear spacer but your truck is exactly the look I am going for. I am also sticking with 265/75 so I might go KO's in load range C to save weight.

    Thanks for posting that pic, makes me 100% sure I want .85.

    Looks great! Quick question, how do your KO's ride? Are they nice and smooth and quiet. Also, did you lose much MPG's with the switch? I am going to run 265/70/17's load range C so I should not lose much if any.

    KOs ride pretty smooth...they produce a little more noise than the stock 265s when the windows are down at sub-highway speeds but it's nothing I would ever complain about. Sub-highway speeds with windows up isn't noticeable. Highway it's a little noisier but again, not significant. With the music up even a little, you won't notice. I will note, I've only had them for exactly one week now so I can get more detailed in another week or two. Some highway travel and off-roading is in store next weekend. Hopefully some pics as well...

    UPDATE: Added blue interior LEDs - looks sick! Unfortunately the pictures from my phone make the light look purple so just use your imagination a bit

    I used Plastidip. It was fairly easy to do - biggest pain was the prep work. Took me about three cans total.
