    I'm lowered too, in fact, I'm lower than him.

    We have the same suspension guy, and I'm on his front page.

    I think lowered base Tacomas look good. I wish there were more 2nd gen Tacomas bagged actually. I also think shaving the tailgate handle would look good on a lowered Tacoma.

    Yea, but that wasn't a kit. He just shaved it, and did his own thing.

    Kits usually have a filler plate and some other crap to make the handle work inside the gate.

    Nah it wasn't, my old lowered street toyota also had removable hardtop along with all those others. lol. They're appropriate (to a point) for lowered street & the ones you mentioned were appropriate for off road. A buddy of mine was jealous of my convertible so he one up'd it by doing homemade T-tops and custom front spoiler on his. Talk about leaky leaky overkilled hi lux, lol.
