I just ordered the JD kit a couple weeks ago for my 3rd gen T4R. Not much out there for installed pics for this model year range, but I’m excited and have been waiting for years to get back into the LT game.


I will be interested for sure! I just ordered the arms, so I’ll be piecing the coilovers and axles as funds allow for the next couple months.
Nice! LT is something I've always toyed with, even when I first got my Tacoma. Never went down that route because I just wasn't able to afford it.

Oof. Not trying to step on toes here, just getting in line myself. @Airdog You can offer them to @cbechtold if he wants them since he showed interest in this thread first.
No… You made an effort…. He just tagged me to contact him. I’m lazy like him so…you win the #1 spot.
Agreed. You made an effort so you get first dibs on them. I'll take second in line. I'm in no rush either on suspension so I still have to put an LT kit on order sometime in November/December.

What's the difference between the 2? I don't know much about short body coilovers.
Camburg and maybe TC needed a special coilover to fit their LT Kits ~22" C-C extended but keeps the full 8" stroke. I dunno if the current offerings need such a shock or use a normal 8" stroke ~24" C-C coilover.

I have a set of sort body fox coilovers for camburg LT. Never used, but 5-6 years old.

Let me look into MCM Fab and JD Fabrications kits and see if that would work. I'll let you know.

Dont know nothing about short body vs regular....but these Fox's that I bought were originally made for a Camburg full size truck LT kit. As you can see from the pic there are 2 .3 inch spacers in them to limit travel. I took 1 out and it gave me within .01 inches of what JDfab specs out for the Fox shocks for his LT kits. So on top of removing one spacer I rebuilt the shocks and got them some fresh oil....even though it was the first time they were rebuilt the dude before me must have babied them because the existing oil was really clean still.
