Those look great. How much and where you get them from?

fyi to embed the pic in the post go to the large pic page in your gallery here (or in photobucket), right-click the photo, then if you're using firefox click Copy Image Location. If you're using Internet Explorer hit Properties then highlight the address part and hit Ctrl-C.

Then in your post here click the icon that says Insert Image (it's next to the link icon) and paste in the URL you copied. I will make a proper tutorial for this since it gets asked alot.

Thanks TCBob,

As for the wheels I got them at Tomz Wheels and they were $824 shipping included. The lift straight from Toytec and the tires from Discount at $190 per. Now let me try your input advice.

Hey roxspin,

I did have a very, very slight rub on full turn against that little plastic box thing in the fender well toward the front of the tire. I cut the bottom out of the box, then cut along the seems about 3" to 4". Then I folded each piece in on itself, drilled a hole through all 4 pieces and put a plastic molding fastner through the hole. Worked like a charm.

Looks very nice. Is your's the 2wd Prerunner off-road package? That's what I have, (superwhite paint). Just recently upgraded the whole jbl audio system with a jensen headunit, two kicker 8" SL5's, two kicker amps.

Could you tell me what package you bought from toytech lifts? Thanks.

Morning Jgut,

Yeah thats what I have....2wd prerunner off road...as for the lift here is the details is called the 3" lift coil kit with AAL's and here is the link http://www.toyteclifts.com/0507tacoc...07tacoliftkits check them out, no complanints here. By the way make sure you post pics of the system, Im leaning toward the stero being the next mod and I am always interested in what stuff is looking like and sounding like. Also let me know what kind of money you are spending if you don't mind. Kind of need to set budget goals for each mod. Take care

Never have seen that color in Phoenix. I like my 08 white, but that is SHARP!!! I would have probably got that one!

I had a 95 Taco w/ a metalic pewter. I wish they still had that color also.

Sorry guys, I seemed to have fallen off the face of the earth at work. Got to put in the hours if you want to buy the toys.

Thanks JHodge for answering the color question. I looked at a lot of the colors but decided I really liked the Desert Sand Mica. Doesnt show the dirt to much, keeps a bit cooler and lets be honest, every other taco I see is silver. LOL

Thanks for all the comments guys.

Hey Baldtaco, who did you have install the lift kit for you? I've been working on getting some estimates so far and most of them use different kits but I love the way the toytec lift looks so I'm probably leaning towards buying that and getting someone else to install it.

I will have pictures of the sound sytem soon. Just need to get around to actually doing it. I bought a lot of the stuff online, most of it on e-bay. Don't have an actual cost of how much I've spent since I did use some of the stuff from my trade in (honda civic 04). I do recommend getting the box off e-bay, a guy in Florida makes custom boxes and they come out perfect. His user name is supercrewsoundaudio.
