I just bought a 2013 Tacoma double cab 4x4. I usually drive a BMW car but I always wanted a good pic up truck that I can do anything with it and my research and experience with cars pointed me toward Tacoma. I think it is the best mid size truck that money can buy! I wanted to buy a used one but due to the lack of the availability of a used one for a reasonable price, I ended up getting a new one.
I have to say that I am very impressed with the wealth of the information in this website and I am looking forward to participate and contribute as much as I can to this forum.
And now the short list of my mods. What, did you think I will leave it stock?
1- I had to get rid of those skinny tires so I just installed XD wheels and Firestone Destination A/T tires 275/70/17. IMO these tires are wide enough to look good on the truck until the suspension is installed. I had to trim the wheel lining and some of the side skirt but that's about it. The tire still rubs a little in turns when flexing but that should go away after the lift. It looks way better now!!
2- After much research, I decided on getting the ARB OMETAC05LK suspension.
I am not planning to do too much wheeling so I think this suspension should be fine (at least for now! )
The suspension is on it's way and I will install it myself ASAP. I need to buy the strut mounts so I can assemble the front struts in advance to save time and hassle.
3- I want to install LS460 bi-xenon projectors as I really want to see much better than the stock halogen headlights. Anybody against this? I was told the LS460 bi-xenon projectors are the best and it will fit in the Tacoma headlights.
Too bad I can't find aftermarket headlights for 2013 Tacoma. I really didn't want to mutilate the OEM headlights if you know what I mean!
