As minitruckers we take pride in our rides and customizing them to match our personal tastes or interests. However, what happens when your truck goes under the knife for the 'bag job and body drop? How about body modifications or a sick paintjob. Don't forget about the interior or stereo work. It all comes down to either, you find a ride for weeks on end, or you find a daily driver that will get you around while your pride and joy undergoes it's modifications. But we are minitruckers and for some reason it runs in our blood that we drive a customized ride, even if it is our daily-driver. So, what can we do without shelling out thousands of dollars on a clean daily-driver? Instead of fabricating a custom suspension for your truck, a static drop is a simple and easy way to get a truck closer to earth without spending a ton of money.
With this in mind, DJM Suspension developed a complete line of hi-tech and properly engineered suspension components to give your mini the mild drop you desire. We wanted to see what these products were all about, so we headed over to Devious Customs in Riverside, California, to witness the install of a 3-inch DJM drop kit on a '07 Toyota Tacoma. For more information on this or other kits available, contact the companies listed in the Source box.
