    Hi, living in the Tucson area. What part of Phoenix did you live in?

    Nice looking truck! What lift did you go with? Happy with it? Do your tires stick out much past the fender flares?

    I'm interested in a lift and like the look of beefy tires sticking out but wondering if I really want them out past the fender flares. Still thinking this one over.

    Mesh grill looks nice too. I bought a black one but have yet to install it.

    I lived in the arrowhead area over by the mall 101 and bell rd area. I miss it at times but it sure was hott in the summer. I used to hit the crown king trail at times which was a blast.

    I went with a 3/2 lift 3" spacer upfront and 2" lift in rear which I still have a lil rake with rear being 1" higher which I wanted so if have a load it levels out. My tires don't really stick out much at all and they fill out the heel well nice.

    Im gonna go with a lil bigger lift like the rcd or zone 4" lift and will stay with a 285/65r18 tire. I don't wanna run 35's like alot of people on here cause its just gonna kill your mpg and 35's look too big for the tacomas

    It all looks great minus the Lexus... the problem is lexus doesn't even make a truck so there is no possibility it could be anything else minus a Tacoma, so why do it? It's your truck though so by all means if it makes you happy, keep it!
