Hey...

Okay... I am new to the Tacoma. I have always been a foreign sports car guy. However, if I had my idea of what I wanted my Taco to look like it would be:



What can you tell me about this pic? Lift? Rims? Tires? etc...

Thats probably too big of a lift for a 4 cyl. It looks like a 6" procomp lift on close to 35" tires.

A 3 inch lift would be alot better in my opinion. You can fit 33 inch tires and it will be more functional. 3 inch coilovers such as Icons with 285/75/16 tires on a wheel with 4.5" backspaciing would suit you very well.

Too much for the 4 eh? In time, currency willing, I will have my 6. For now... I have a bunch of payments on this 2011 4cy Access cab.

Bull bar, skid plate, side steps. I know I've seen those wheels on here before but I'm not sure what they are.

I also can't make out if there's a tonneau cover or not, the fencing in the back is making things a little fuzzy.

Still...compared to a SAC'd rig in full armor, this is middle of the road.

I never said otherwise, I just added to the list of things you didn't mention

It does seem fairly basic but I'm sure they can easily cost close to $10K once added up.

Oh that's right, americans get things for about half of what we have to pay for it

4 grand seems to be low though, he's got at least 2 in wheels and tires alone.

6" lift most likely pro comp, any sort of black rims will look good, skid plate that tip looks like it is black so it may be an rbp 4.5" tip like the one on my truck, it has factory step boards personally id opt for nfabs/rbp steps i dont like the board look, and a westin bull bar but again id go for a black westin not chrome

And a 6" kit is another 2000 to 2500. I'd say $5000 US to go from stock to that, give or take a couple hundred for the bullbar and the pro-comp skid.
