Greetings everyone. All the way from Miri, Sarawak.

Been hitting this forum since I bought the lux over a year ago and spent time=money trying different set ups. Drove a Navara D40 for few years but finally revisited Toyota and found a used unit that I think I could work on. It is a 2014 automatic 1KD-FTV driven with these set up other than detailed refurb work to return the car in complete stock condition before I could further "damage" it :mrgreen:

1. OME shocks
2. OME coil springs
3. OEM leaf springs
4. 15x8.5 ET -15 Raguna alloy wheels (I've tried 16x8 -27, 15x10 -44)
5. 31x10.50R15 Maxxis AT980 (used to have both 265/75R16 & 31x10.50R15 muddies on)

I am planning to have it set up primarily for touring with some offroad capabilities.
