I will be the first to admit my lack of auto-part savyness and I know little about what works with what. But after research of what people seem to like on here and other places I have started to make a list of what I would like to do to my truck. I would love input and suggestions on these items I have picked out.
What I am going for is I want top of the line. I am the type that would rather wait and save and get the best instead of buying middle of the road and having to upgrade later. Also if I am missing something crucial to the success of this build please inform me and possibly offer suggestion.
What I want:
A solid 3" lift with 33" tires that offers good feel with normal daily road driving but that can handle some serious trail off-roading.
A full new exhaust system that offers best ++ in performance and fuel proficiency. (or other upgrades that will increase performance & fuel proficiency)
Great off-roading protection features like rock sliders etc.
Here are the links to the items that after researching look like they will give me what I want.
Toytec 3” Lift Coil Kit with AAL
Bilstein 5100 Series shocks
Nitto Terra Grappler [want 33" tires but don't know which specific tire I'll need]
JBA Headers, Tacoma 05+ 4.0L V6
JBA Exhaust, Tacoma, 05+, EC/LB, DC/SB, 4.0L V6
Shrockworks Rock sliders
Shrockwork Winch Bumper
So that is what I have selected thus far. Currently I have not upgraded anything on my truck.. It is just like it came (08 DC/SB SR5 TRD)
Thanks for all your help please feel free to suggest better products and other upgrades I might consider to achieve main goals.
PS: cost really isn't an issue and I intend to go through with these upgrades within the next 6 months.
