    Aloha all,

    I ordered my 2012 Tacoma Last week. The dealer said it should be here around the end of next month or beginning of November.

    Once the truck arrives, I will be doing the following mods:

    Performance:

    TRD SuperCharger (dealer installed)
    TRD Intake (dealer installed)
    TRD Exaust (dealer installed)

    Lift: (at this time I am still undecided on what way I am going to go, I was thinking of doing long travel, but really don't want to spend 4k on the front end. Out here in Hawaii we only have beaches, so i think height is good for now)

    Pro Comp: 6 inch Lift Kit with Front MX2.75 Coilovers & MX-6 Shocks
    or
    AllPro: https://www.allprooffroad.com/05tacomafrontsuspension/294

    Wheels / Tires:

    RIMS: Pro Comp: Series 7113 Metal Mulisha - Flat Black
    Tires: 35x12.50 Goodyear Wrangler MTR With Kevlar

    Lights:

    Bi-Xenon 5000k Headlights with matching Fogs

    Audio:

    Amp: JL HD900/5 5-Channel AMP
    Radio: Keeping stock JBL, Will be installing a JL Clean-sweap. I want to keep all of the factory BT controls and steering wheel controls. I have had a clean sweep in the past, and you cant tell the difference from that vs aftermarket. I also will keep using the factory VOL controls
    Subwoofer: 13TW5
    Door Speakers: Still undecided, prob MB Quarts

    On-board Air: CO2 Tank


    That's it, let me know what you all think!

    I'd skip the CO2 for OBA and go straight for a compressor setup. You're doing a lot of other stuff right. Don't cheap on that. Grab one of these, divorce the tank from the compressor, mount it up, and you're set for a while.

    As far as lift goes, these trucks are VERY capable with a basic 2.5-3" kit and 33's.

    TRD? OR? Sport? 4x4? Details man!

    CO2 vs Onboard air, you cant compair them really. CO2 is far better, it is faster, dont have to wait for the tank to get filled, works on or about 40+ tires on a 15lb tank.

    Heck I used my CO2 tank to build my deck for the nail gun

    CO2 for the win at half the price

    Yeah they both have plusses and minuses. I just don't like the hassle of filling / refilling.

    Sick 4r though. Looks like the front was SAS'd?

    Sweet can't wait to see it! I'm thinking about going 2012 supercharged. Probably won't lift it much. Maybe just some 5100's and 265/75/16's!

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.

    X2 C02 FTW! I would take my C02 over OBA any day hell half the guys i wheel with went out and bought a C02 setup after seeing how fast it airs up tires. And for filling I have a #20 tank that will fill 80 33" tires and cost 16 bucks to refill :D



    Oh and welcome :wave:

    Im sorry for the thread jack but I was wondering if you guys could point me in the right direction as far as a good CO2 tank setup to purchase. Any particular brand or size? What would be a good mounting point on a double cab short bed? Any help is appreciated.

    the source, or power tank. you could build your own set up if you dont want to pay for the name on these 2

    and OP if your doing a 6" lift do it right, skip the mx-6 coilovers and rear shocks, get 12" travel fox's and icom 6" coilovers, wayyy better than procomp :)

    X2 I bought my Regulator and hose from Wheelers HERE and just got a C02 tank from a welding gas shop for about 60 bucks and i just swap it out every time no need to fill they just take mine and give me a full one. And for mounting i just bought a #20 fire extinguisher truck mount and it holds great.

    Yeah it's not worth it IMO for a powder coated tank with a sticker. I have around 200 in mine with the adjustable reg 30' hose #20 tank & mount. If you don't want to run air tools or have tools that will run at 150psi get the fixed for 50 bucks and your set.

    What I noticed with the Power tank setup vs my own home made one, was it fills tires at half of the time.... And its built really well.. If you dont mind airing up being a little slower then build your own, if you want top of the line, Power Tank is what you want.

    It gets rid of any of the equalizing from the factory radio and allows you to tune it on your own. Also gives you RCA outputs for hooking up amplifiers Another product out there is the JBL MS-8.
