Help me build this Taco

Hey guys, I want to start investing some money to make my tacoma more fun to drive. I was hoping some people could give me some advice on suspension ideas and other ideas.

This is what it is now.


Ideas appreciated!

Blackhouse (or any color) headlights

Find a set of foglights on the board and wire those babies up

I don't know how the suspension systems on the 2.7s are set up so can't be of any help there

Woot! Another New Yorker! I dont know about suspension but as far as other accesories go I like my bull bar I just put on and I want to get some sliders next. Looking forward to seeing what you do!

The previous owner purchased them, I'll look more closely after work tomorrow.

I live down on long island, I actually work at a paintball facility in the woods. I enjoy off-roading on the fields after work. =)

I assume that it is a 4x4. What kind of budget are you looking at?

I would go with a desert look. Tube bumpers front and rear, a hoop on the front bumper for lights. I like my OME suspension, but you can go with Bilsteins too. I like the regular cab and white with black overfenders. Looks like a fun truck.

Oh, I enjoy myself once the players leave. I've actually towed small honda sedans out of a sand pit in the parking lot.

Yeah it's electronic 4X4 and manual 5-Speed.
My budget is about $1,000 until I get paid haha.

Don't get a bull bar, get one of the avid offroad bars for the front. They are bad ass.

I'm thinking about getting a lift first. Although my friend with an F-250 cannot help me. I'm not sure how high to make this truck because it is relatively small compared to a double cab or access cab.

OR

I was thinking about getting some more "knobby" tires. Something nice for off-roading and driving on the street without too much road noise.
I have 265/70 R16's currently.

I cannot find the model type of the Rims. I just know their American Racing wheels.
