Tomorrow!

It looks like I will be picking up a 2014 Reg Cab 4x4 tomorrow. I'm excited to get back in a Tacoma and I'm a sucker for the regular cabs. Will be lifting it a little (about 2.5") and running 265/75-16s. Gotta figure out which way I want to go with the lift. I just want it to ride good on-road and perform good off-road. Any suggestions are welcome...help me spend my money! I may just get some coilovers and keep it simple, but I don't know which ones are best for ride quality. Time to do some more reading........

Great truck

I just bought a 11 reg cab 4x4 3 weeks ago and just order the icon stage 1 kit from wheelers. They gave me a great price. Good job on buying the last year reg cab !

I'm happy for you, man.

Take good care of it and keep it a long time like your '89, and it'll be a real collector's item.

Big wheels and fat tires will make you lose low end power because they raise the gearing... especially on a 2.7. And the 2014 is heavier than your '89. (I had an '88 ) So if you go the big wheel route, you may need to regear to compensate.

Patience, Grasshoppa, patience! I just ordered all the stuff and will be installing it all over Christmas. I know, I'm a little behind schedule, but shit happens.

You are doing better than me. I ordered leaf springs and rear shocks back in May. I have had the coilovers for the front and all the other small things since september, but still don't have any of it on the truck. Haven't had a free minute since.

That will be one nice truck and post the pictures when you get them.
