Daytonaviolet's build thread

Hey guys,

I finally got a 5th gen about a month ago, but i've been hoarding all kinds of parts for like 8 months. I finally found a local car at the right price and configuration. It's a 2016 Blizzard Pearl Limited. But honestly I’ve always been a fan of the Pro look but liked the creature features (full-time 4x4, keyless entry, push start, leather seats, dual climate) of the Limited. I guess my build will look more like a fake Pro


Exterior:
1. TRD hood - done
2. TRD front bumper/valance -done
3. TRD pro suspension - 2018 pro - done
4. TRD skid plate - done
5. TRD pro roof rack - done
6. TRD pro wheels - done
7. predator steps - for the kids, done
8. cornfed spacers - 2/1.5 - done
9. trail edition rockers -done
10. gobi ladder
11. plastic dipped tailgate garnish

Interior:
1. led interior lights - done
2. TRD shift knob - done
3. A pillar handle


Mods I plan to get:
1. tires -nitto ridge grapplers - done
2. led lights - sv4



i'll post pictures as i install each of the pieces. keep in mind, this is currently my daily driver so i want to keep the mods mellow

Can I ask a dumb question? What is the point of putting on the TRD Pro suspension but then adding a spacer lift to it?

Well the Pro only lifts the front about 1" and none in the rear. So if you want to keep the Pro suspension and get a lift, your only solution is spacers.

If I had a Limited, I would have just dropped the coin on something that cost similar to the Pro Suspension but is an actual lift kit. But to each their own.

Good question Daytonaviolet's build thread. The TRD pro suspension is a very capable stock suspension which I got at a very reasonable price. Ive driven a few of them and liked the stock feel but yet firm and its ~ 1 higher then other runners. I wanted a stock ride feel but wanted to level it a bit .

I saw this thread and saw that Cornfed was a good solution. It would feel like a stock TRD pro but with a little lift. I figure Id give this option a try before deciding on which lift to go with.

there are not many nice lift kits ~ $700 range. The lifts I was looking at were more in the $2500-$3500 range. I need to wait a while before I could get into a 3 lift.

For the mean time I think the pro suspension level route will work for a few months Daytonaviolet's build thread

I also got a Pro suspension at a really good value and it came with the Toyec Baja lower spring perch which is half an inch thicker and it added another inch. 2" is a sweet spot, maintains a similar yet firmer but not harsh ride, basically OEM parts, no dealer hassles and no need to change UCA.
I love my set up.

Referencing your first picture and noticing the garage door height, if you plan to continue parking in the garage you might want to make sure that you can clear the garage door. The new suspension, lift, and 2019 TRD Pro roof rack might create a clearance issue. Just a thought.

You got a killer deal! I have been seeing them go for $1200 and up. Nothing wrong with a PRO suspension and spacers. Especially at that price.

I normally park outside. I only parked in the garage to install the led interior lights. I was shocked that the length fit as I have cabinets attached to the wall taking up ~ 2. Putting on the pro rack will most likely happen after the suspension. Once the rack goes on, I doubt Ill be able to enter the garage. I may be like 1/2 clearance. But my gen4 spent all of her life outside. Currently my gen5 also stays outside Daytonaviolet's build thread

It was actually a used set which the owner stated had ~ 5k miles. I was shocked at the lack of wear so I wanted to give them a try. The Cornfed spacers was an after thought after a saw the TRD pro lifted thread.

I ran a Cornfed 1" spacer in the rear for a while with no issues but it was a little too level for me with the front being at +2, later found a deal on the Dobinson springs, it's about 1.75-2" in the rear. If you stay at +1 in the front, the CF will look fine.

i also picked up a mint condition set a while back and owner also stated it had 5k miles. i thought it was kind of perfect bc my car had just around the same miles when i installed them. only regret is that i didnt add cornfeds to the front and back at the time.
