i just need to find where to order 09 factory fog lights.... any help?

Peanut424 04-22-2010 11:59 AM

which way to go?
I got a little over $300 for my birthday, I want to go with a spacer lift for the yota but some people say if I lift it than I should do it right and do UCA and coils and yada yada. But seeing as how I'm impatient and don't want to keep saving money. Which way should I go? Cold air intake, exhaust, other mods. I'm clueless.

Alarm Issues
I have a 2010 Tacoma with the factory VSP alarm. It like to go off for no reason. Has anyone heard of this or know why? I know it is a 2010 and it is under warranty, however I like to do a little research before going to the dealer.
