the stock shocks do not adjust, that includes the TSB shocks. you would have to buy the front 5100s in order to get the .85" lift off of them.

By the way, What brand is the 5100's? Is it Bilstein also?

Check out readylifts website. I am looking at the 3" for my taco. Looks like everything works with existing stock suspension.

Here's what I did to my truck this week. I had a couple of days and decided to put together a roof rack that met my specific needs. Retail rates on racks were really expensive (more than I wanted to pay anyway) for a beefy 2" tube rack. Savings for doing it my damn self: $750 maybe?

My rack is indispensable and I use it to haul everything from kayaks, canoes, drywall, lumber, steel, etc... Bought the truck in March and have had to live without one for awhile.

out of pocket expense:
$251 for steel
$50 for DTM paint







I managed to use the existing factory bed rails and feel pretty secure about the manner in which I did it. Unfortunately, the 2nd generation bed rails are pretty much perforated sheet metal so I didn't feel as good about mounting to them as I did my first generation truck but it has worked out pretty well.

hood scoop 2011 trd sport

Is there a way to make the hood scoop functional and provide the engine with cold air and no water?

If you're looking to get more air into the engine compartment and not the combustion chamber, than opening that scoop up is not likely the way to do it.
You would be further pressurizing the engine compartment and potentially slowing air into the grill. The hood isn't a huge high pressure area, but it is higher pressure.
Of course its all theory. I don't have a wind tunnel, but its not from the ether. There have been people in the past that have tried to make hood scoops only to have cooling problems.

I have seen some people cutting holes in their fenders or sides of hood to get more air flow OUT of the engine compartment with measured lower temps at the gauge and the ambient under the hood. Better flow through the radiator.

If you wanted to do it anyway and didn't want much rain in there, you could baffle the air. 2 walls, low then high. But my factory scooped cars always just had wet dirty engines.

What about a write up on a 2011 constant power to the cigarette lighter, that would be great!

man... been looking thru the list of mods.. great stuff, but im unlike any of the modders here.. im not that savvy with all these modifications!!! D: i want to do them soo bad... i think my first start would be the map/dome lights.. simple plug and play!... also for the other mods, i dont have the right tools.. for example making extra outlets in the car.. i would love to have that!! but i dont have the tools to get to the end product..

for now, im just looking for a good place to purchase some car mats so the carpets wont get dirtay.. just the basic stuff, dash covers maybe cheap but nice lookin seat covers (i want the wet okole, but need to save up for that)...

any ideas of a good online site or store deals would be greatly appreciated! i just bought my taco, kinda scared to chop it up! hahah
