I have $5K...help me spend it!

All,
I would like to add some suspension, wheels/tires and a front bumper/winch to my 2011 Tacoma DCSB. This truck is only used for everyday driving, fire response, trail driving and overlanding. It will never be a rock crawler. My goal is to gain about 2.5-3 inches of lift via suspension and taller tires, while maintaining the best 'flow' with the pre-existing toyota parts.

Front bumper could be able to fit a Superwinch 9.5i SR or 9.5 SR or similar and have space for lights.

Wheels could be the Mojaves or similar and ties have to be Goodyear brand (I get a sweet discount!)

What are your suggestions as to size, brand, etc?

Thanks!

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Either go with coilovers (ICON, fox, king) or the OME lift (with 886x coils if your getting a bigger bumper), for bumpers look here http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd...gens-only.html, I'd also look at some sliders too.... For wheels if you get a discount from goodyear then i'd get some MTR's in 285's or if you want to be big pimpin go with 305's

true, but not all of us are sheep.

if the OP's 2011 truck is not paid for...applying the 5K to the principle balance would be sage advice.

I was joking... Paying off the truck is always priority before mods. But you expect someone who has $5k to blow to have considered the cost of their truck payments.

$4k against the balance and $1k on stuff. Depending on what you payments are, you can figure out what the $4k saves you in non-deductible interest. ( ie - money you pay for virtually nothing). If it saves you $250 just say, then you get $5250 worth of value out of the $5k and you get to spend a little on some stuff.

All pro bumpers and sliders, coil overs with upper control arms! Tint, retrofit headlights, exhaust, intake, headers. The list is infinite (can someone insert the sideways 8 infinite sign)
