    Hey Y'all!

    I'm the proud new owner of a 2011 TRD Sport 4x4 in Silver Streak Mica.

    This is my first Tacoma, and I'm super excited about it. I take it to the beach for fishing and camping, as well as offroad to remote hunting spots.

    I have not modded it yet, but I plan on installing a set of 4 Bilstein 5100's to lift the front 2" and put 1" blocks or 1.5" AAL'S on the rear. Let me know what y'all think, or if there's any other recommended mods I should do with the lift.

    I also want to install 2 or 4 roof mounted offroad lights and a roof rack. Anybody have any suggestions for lights, light bar, roof rack?

    I'm also running the stock Bridgestone Dueler tires. They seem good on the road and "decent" in the sand. The beaches here at South Padre have a very sugary light sand that's easy to get stuck in. I haven't had any issues yet with the Tacoma, but I've gotten my girlfriend's Jeep Liberty 4x4 stuck a couple of times (that got me in a bit of trouble haha).


    Anyways, I'm pumped to be here and to get this Tacoma tuned just right.
