Well here we go... I was getting tired of driving my 93 LT ranger to work every day with no A/C.
Or the 97 " clunk, pop, squeak" jeep wrangler.
So in August of 2013 I left work at lunch and picked up a 2008 ACSB Tacoma Prerunner. Toyota certified, full warranty, bone stock, with 57k miles.
I swore up and down to myself and anyone that would listen " it's going to be a clean, bone stock DD!" Because I have never had a bone stock truck, let alone with power windows, A/C and all of that.
One week later:
Oops. But I'm still alive! Just a bruised ego.
And now back to the Taco... Got a deal i couldn't pass up on a 1.5" leveling kit. ( I hate the idea of a drop bracket kit/ spacer lift!) But I also hate the stink bug look that all stock pick ups have. So I bought it.
And then browsing threw craigslist a few days later I saw the rims I have been oogling over since I bought the tacoma (1 and a half weeks ago, mind you, lol) soooo I had to buy them. I met up with Vin, a member here on TW. Super cool guy. Thanks again! And picked up some method double standards 17x8.5
So I figured hey, I'll throw the spacer on and run some little A/T tires for now with these sexy rims.
Well.... Why would I buy brand new baby tires and stuff them under a stock truck??? So the tires are now on hold. I've been searching the past few days for my next purchase.
To save money in the long run, I only want to buy good parts, that will stay on the truck till the end, but I also want to get it lifted up a little to run some 33s untill I have enough money saved up to buy a LT kit. So the plan is to get a spindle lift that will eventually work with an L/T kit. I'm thinking the camburg 4" spindle, but the maxtrac spindle is half the price!! Tempting.. Any input??
