What do you do with your truck?

Right now, LT would serve me best. Believe it or not the stock Tacoma has A LOT of power for off-roading.

Centrifugal Superchargers suck. They are basically very inefficient turbos. Roots style is much better with more instant power delivery. Twin-Screw is best.

I would pass on the URD system and just get the TRD if you want FI.

Are the TRD superchargers finally available for the latest model years? Not too very long ago, they were only available for 2008 and earlier models.

^^ Well, that's good and bad news. Good that they're out and bad in that it's just more for me to potentially spend.

No one said it must be a 6 inch lift. Why not get a top of the line lift kit like icon stage 4 front suspension then some real nice shocks in the rear and a nice leaf pack to give you 4 in the rear

3" lift and build it like a tank... although then you may need the supercharger to move it

6 inch lift for sure, the re-sale market (hopefully you dont get rid of it right away) would favor you more because it is lifted. think of the average buyer, would he be more attracted to it being lifted or supercharged. id have to say the lift, its not a celica its a tacoma

S/c isn't that great, went from 15 mpg to 12, and you'll only see gains if you are on the gas. I should have went with lift but I got a great deal on a S/c so I had to skewp it up.

Both--get the supercharger for $3900 (installed yourself), then do a minor lift with some 5100, toytec springs and an add-a-leaf. Thats probably $4600 total.
