Best mod for 300$

Just got the Tacoma yesterday.

Its bone stock. What would be the best mods at 300$ and under.

Lift it? How much does a baisic one cost? say 2"

Cold air intake? If so, witch do you prefer?

Tinted windows?

Exhaust? Witch do you prefer?

Any other good mods out there?

I plan on getting tires with my tax money in Jan.
Painting my wheels black.
And may be adding a lift.

For performance go with the URD TCAI with the MAF Cal. It gives you the most horsepower for value.

If I'm not mistaken you will need something in the rear like AAL. don't take my word for it though I'm still researching this stuff for my own lift.

the shocks are adjustable and can be adjustable from .85, 1.75, 2.5"

uses stock front springs... you'll need something to lift that back either AAL or block... but at 1.75" up front the truck is level

Remember, you will need an alignment if you lift your truck.

5100's for the front will run about 180 to 200 depending on where ya buy them.

If you dont do the install some places my charge 300 to install them and align the truck.

Sounds like a good plan.

I just looked and I have Reflex shocks and struts on there now. Those any good?

If I were you I would either get a aFe Pro dry 2 filter $60, tint, a muffler no more than $130 installed not a full blown cat back, Floor mats front and rear I paid $110 for my husky liners, GPS maybe, the 5100s, your gonna pay more than $300 after installed unless you install them your self, but like I said before If I was you I would couninue to save and get a better lift like a ome lift.

If i were you i would either
1) save till you have enough for Wet Okoles or save even longer for a lift
2) buy some weathertecs digifit floormats and maybe an afe air filter

I would probably go with option 2 if thats your budget because a lift and tires is gunna cost a couple grand so that might be a while
