My first thought is that it's a lifted 4cyl Access cab with a skewped hood and custom paint. It's kind of a sleeper that way, isn't it?

I wish it was a 4cyl at times, Well the V6 is nothing special for power it has much more power with the smaller tires but oh well all show no go.

Thanks! I ended up putting the lift (AAL and spacer) on my birthday. Front went on within 1 hour the rear was a different story. Trying to compress the leafs was not fun.

Thinking of a full front off road bumper or avid off road light bar and a 30" LED but I am undecided.

Yes, I have not been going crazy with it due to the tire shop busting some studs its going into another shop for stud repair and alignment for free.

I am surprised on how well it rides, the kit came with rear shocks to accommodate the added height. Front is a little stiffer. Having more tire between the wheel sure helps alot with the ride too.

Why would you butcher an X-runner instead of buying a 4x4 in the first place???

FIFY.

OP has already stated he rarely if ever uses 4x4 but that the xrunner was too low for his rocky roads.

Then why not buy an access cab prerunner. Same V6 and would've been way easier to work on....

Never the less, good job OP that's a truly original X runner lol.

Here is my old tacoma well new but old. I don't miss the payments at all. I also lifted this truck and added wheels and tires. Its much easier to buy a new truck than an old one unless its really cheap. 30+ for a 4x4 taco or 15 for an older one. Lifts were equally the same at installation.

This is true, I ride dirt bikes and drive gravel roads often. Plus I also ride in the sand now I can mess around in the truck with some low tire pressure.

I ended up just trading the truck in. So no more tacoma now. It was a good truck, ride was a little stiff but overall I still liked the outcome. I just needed back into the 4x4 game trying to load and unload boats/waverunners was a bit difficult on the beach haha.

I've noticed you like to spend money in the wrong places, and end up trading in for a loss.

Kind of like me. It's a shitty way to go, dude.
