Ok men. I've the $500 saved up and a stock 03 taco. What would you guys suggest I do? Suspension? Line-X the bed? Tint windows? Give me some suggestions for a new owner. It will see dirt,mud and elk blood

I'd probably Line-X just to get rid of the drop in bed liner. Seems like the Line-X would be the most beneficial mod if you plan on hauling a lot of stuff.

Add A Leaf (for your rear leaf springs) I don't have experience in them, but most people go with 'Dakar Add A Leaf'. As far as shocks go, majority go with Bilstein 5100s, or 5125s (more sizes/longer).


My vote is for Line-X especially if you plan on keeping the truck a while. That was my 1st mod & there are no regrets in that department!

The day after I Line-X'd it


I wish I had a before/after pic, but that was before I got obsessed with mods

blistein 5100's up front, they are adjustable from 0"-2.5" lift
Depending how high you want the back you could go with matching blistein 5100 rear shocks.
AAL= Add A Leaf

Mr. Windsheild there on the pullman highway will tint the front windows for $90.

If you are leaning towards suspension ive got a mix of things on mine. Feel free to give me a shout if your interested in seeing them in person or even go for a test drive on it. Good luck.

Damn, I totally forgot about you living here. I'll shoot you a pm. My girl is leaving to Coeur d' Alene so I should have some time tomorrow. If not later in the week is cool. I'd really like to check out your taco.

I think it was $400-500 for the bed and $100 more if you wanted whatever they call it where the liner doesn't fade. Yeah, I went to WSU
