Newb here !

Hi Guys !

My name's Ricky and I'm new to this forum and in Tacomas ! Just wanted to say hello and ask some questions and advices i've look in here but cannot find an exact answer. So I have a 2013 double cab TRD sport, RWD, which I really love !

The question, is it ok to add to it some off road mods or is it just a waste of money? Bigger wider tires? lift? or any other mod I don't know about that can help me? I'm not intending to do mud or super hill climbs, but some sand or agricultural areas plus I just love the look on it and if it doesn't affect the vehicle mechanical parts such as tranny or suspension. Don't know if you get what I'm asking here. :roll eyes:

THANKS !

It's really up to you if you want to mod your truck. Also what your warranty would allow. I've heard some warranties are nulled if the suspension is changed. If that matters to you then check with the dealership before you do any suspension changes. But other cosmetic mods should be ok

Is it true that in the RWD if you change rims and tires can damage the diff or other tranny components ?

Welcome! You won't hurt anything unless you change to a really big tire, which if you're not planning on lifting your truck you won't be able to do anyway. Lots of guys on here running up to 33" tires with no problems. If you go bigger, I have read that you'd need to re-gear the rear differential though.
