Taco from the north

So this year I decided to treat myself and bought a Tacoma for my 30th birthday..
It took a lot longer than I'd hope to get but once it showed up I couldn't have been happier. So here it is, my 2013 Pyrite Mica DCSB 6spd Tacoma


It didn't take long to start on the upgrades either, my brother sent me a skid plate which I installed the first day and I had already ordered my tires and lift in. A few days later I got some side steps and am currently waiting for my Rigid lights and AFE intake.
So far i think it's looking pretty good.




The platform:
2013 Toyota Tacoma, DCSB

The Mods
Procomp Nitro 3" Lift
P285/70R17 Toyo Open Country A/T
Smittybuilt/N-fab Nerf Bars
'TRD' 10G Skid plate (don't know where my bro found it but it's sweet)
Rigid Dually and Dually D2 mounted behind the grill
AFE Intake
csjumper LED lights (map, dome and DTRL)
Debadged
Bakflip F1 tonneau cover
Toyota OEM roof rack
ANZO taillights
Switched over to Synthetic oil
Carriage Works black billet grill
Smittybuilt recovery shackle hitch


The Plans
RCD 4" Lift
Allpro Expedition rear springs
ICON Coilovers
Shackle flip
Satoshi or Grillcraft grill
17" Countersteer Type X or SCS Stealth 6
Long tube headers
and realistically anything else I can get my hands on, I'm hooked

nice start and good looking truck man. Another easy DIY to add should be the BHLM, best cheap mod.

How do you like those tires? I think am going to get a set of these. Pros/cons, thoughts.

I like my A/Ts zand they've served me well so far but really their's no perfect tire. They're loads better than stock, of course. Low noise and good wet weather traction, fair in the snow and half decent in ice. But they lack the traction of a true snow tire (obviously) and don't clear mud like an M/T. But then they are a 'P' rated tire and a good compromise for a daily driver.
Personally I'll likely be getting 2 more sets of other tires over the next year, MT for fun with mud slinging and some studded winters for the long harsh northern winter.
If you want somthing a bit more aggressive but not too nobby I suggest either the Goodyear Duratracs or maybe Nitto Trail Grappler.

Ok, im torn between Toyo open country and nitto terra grappler AT. 285/70/17
Both are the same price and I will be picking one of these. I don't go off road very much but I like the look of an aggressive tire. What should I go with?

Don't know if you made your choice yet but you're right, tough call. I'm not sure what the wear is like but if you want the more aggressive look go with the NITTO.
