    Might seem crazy but I haven't even purchased my Tacoma TRD Sport SR5 4x4 long bed yet...it's all in the works...things should be finalized tomorrow...have a list of things I'm gonna throw on it already let me know if I'm missing something...
    [​IMG]
    6" Pro Comp suspension lift
    XD Monster 18" black wheels
    Toyo Open Country 35's
    Thule Aero Roof Rack System
    Black low-pro toolbox (dk which model/make yet)
    ...and probably some kind of light bar up front with some KC lights mounted...
    That's about it for now....oh and some kind of aftermarket air filter system.

    What kind of gas mileage should I expect after I install all these upgrades?

    I can't believe I sold my 2007 Chevy LTZ Vortec Max 6.0 Z71 4x4w/ 6" lift and 35's....etc etc. Here's a pic of my ex-beauty...reasons being: going on 4yrs w/ it, 9-10mpg, and gas prizes supposedly fixing to shoot up this summer!

    with 35's you'll get about 4-5more mpg better than your previous pickup. :(

    I can do that where? How much would that cost me? Would it affect warranty, etc?

    I don't know if that pic is the truck your buying but I hope their not selling it as a 2012 with those sport plus chrome wheels because its the 2011 body style. Don't get cheated out of any money!!!! Either way you will be happy just don't get knicked!!! and Welcome!

    Yessir. I would never purchase a truck w/out it being 4x4. I hunt and fish 3-4 times a week! It's a must.

    If you want a little better gas mileage don't go 6" and 35's, go 3" and 33s. It will look great and save gas.

    I'd love that...but I've never had a truck lifted less than 6". I just wouldn't feel right...as long as I can get 15+mpg I'd be fine.

    I honestly can't say, I haven't seen them for sale on here yet. As for suggestions on the mods you want to throw on your truck, I would look at the 2nd gen builds and search around the forums a bit and choose what you like.

    The XD rims seem to be too common around here for me, I would suggest looking up Artillery ATX rims and see if you like the looks of those. (My personal favorite when it comes to rims)

    I think 15 is tops with 6" and 35s. Lots of people just get that with 3" and 33s.
