I've been stressing lately, quite a bit. I love my truck but am annoyed with too many things. Driveline vibes, shitty seats (although all wrapped in leather and heated, etc... NOT Sport seats though), lack of power (only have catback 3" and a TRD intake), the truck floats all over the road like I'm drunk, and a few other little things.
I drove a Raptor, and was impressed of course. BUT, it's missing a lot of my favs from the Tacoma. Storage, shorter front doors, gas mileage (eh, not much...) maybe more...
I was thinking about giving my Tacoma the good things about the Raptor, but it's almost a better deal to just get the damn Raptor... a quick list to explain:
long travel set up
better on road handling
I'd like to go with the AP lt kit (for my 4x4) for a few reasons. My icon st. 4 with AP expo leaf pack isn't great to me. I'm hoping with a better set up I can get a perfect ride height, feel, and the handling i'm looking for on roads. I hate that my truck feels so loose, the steering is sloppy, etc. Does it get worse with LT?
What can I do about the drive line vibes? Do you LT guys have them worse? Ideally I want a 2.5" lift all around. That's about where I'm at now, but the vibrations drive me nuts. Would a single piece driveshaft fix that 100%?
Front seats would be easy, I'd get sport seats (instead of my base models) and rewrap them in black/tan leather. I have a rear ARB air locker that I need to install, been holding off for a final decision on the truck. For power, can't do much more unless you know of a turbo set up that's carb legal... damn I hate this state... (CA) What can I do about a better steering ratio?
This is partly LT related, hope it's okay here... the other stuff I guess I can talk about in another forum...
It's late and I'm beat... I'll edit this post later, to make it easier to read/understand/help me, haha
