List of Mods I am interested in

Hey everybody, I'm obviously new to this site and have a few questions. I have a 2012 Tacoma TX TRD (2WD). I'm looking for a few mods and would like to get a gew people's input on which manufacturer makes good quality yet affordable parts for my truck. Here's a list:

Suspension- Looking to raise it 4 or 6 inches. 1.5 or 3 inches just seems like a waste to me.

Exhaust- Looking for an aggressive sound. No honda rice rocket sounding things :P

Tires- Looking for the widest and biggest tires i could put on with the 4 or 6 inch lift.

Rims- I currently have the new black TRD rims which i think are sweet but I'm afraid they might be too small with the lift. I'm not lookin to throw some music video 22's on my truck. Anything under 20".I believe they are currently 16 inches.

Lighting: I've already smoked my tail lights. some smoked or dark colored LED headlights would be sick.
CAI- I heard that for this model tacoma you have to modify the cai and place it in front of the radiator. Is this true, If so what brand makes the best cai for my truck?

Lastly, Where can i find the toyota factory roof racks?? Ive looked online but NONE are exactly like the ones you would get from a dealership! >:|

I live in Bakersfield, CA, and I spend my weekends in LA, so if you can refer to a shop or business in those areas that would be great. I'm open to buying online as well though
I know this is a lot, but I would appreciate any input anyone has to say. Thanks,

-Erik

Suspension- Looking to raise it 4 or 6 inches. 1.5 or 3 inches just seems like a waste to me.

Since you have a Prerunner, you can go with lift spindles for the front. That will allow you to retain the factory ride and UCA's but will lift the front 4". It also gives it a nice stance. For the rear, you could do either a 2" AAL or replacement leaf pack. I guess that part depends on if you want it to sit level or still have some rake.

Exhaust- Looking for an aggressive sound. No honda rice rocket sounding things :P

Check out youtube clips and decide for yourself which exhaust sounds best to you. Asking for opinions on exhaust sounds over the internet won't really do you any good as you're the one who has to live with it. Some popular choices are the TRD exhaust, Magnaflow, Banks, Borla and Gibson.

Tires- Looking for the widest and biggest tires i could put on with the 4 or 6 inch lift.

Rims- I currently have the new black TRD rims which i think are sweet but I'm afraid they might be too small with the lift. I'm not lookin to throw some music video 22's on my truck. Anything under 20".I believe they are currently 16 inches.

Lighting: I've already smoked my tail lights. some smoked or dark colored LED headlights would be sick.

Look into the black headlight mod and retrofits. If you retrofit projectors into the stock housing, you'll get great lighting and can black out the entire housing, reflector included. As far as form and function, this is the best bang for your buck in my opinion.

CAI- I heard that for this model tacoma you have to modify the cai and place it in front of the radiator. Is this true, If so what brand makes the best cai for my truck?

I think the CAI you're referring to is the URD cold air intake. It has a tube that sucks air in from in front of the radiator. The TRD intake pulls from the same location as the stock intake. Honestly, I'd save my money in this department and just go with a better drop in filter. If you really want the CAI, the first gen TRD, AFE Stage 2Si, Volant and URD will be your best choices.

Lastly, Where can i find the toyota factory roof racks?? Ive looked online but NONE are exactly like the ones you would get from a dealership! >:|

Ebay

I live in Bakersfield, CA, and I spend my weekends in LA, so if you can refer to a shop or business in those areas that would be great. I'm open to buying online as well though

See responses in bold. I skipped the wheels and tires, not really my thing...

For reference, he was making a joke. The joke was that your thread title could be interpreted as a list of moderators you were interested in - thus weird. HA HA. Good job flying off the handle before thinking.

Great 2nd post man. Hahahaha
In all reality though, there's nothing wrong with a 3 inch lift and you can put 33's under it which is what most guys do. Truck gets a little tip happy being up that high.
