    Hello everyone,

    I'm glad I found this website been reading several threads and this community seems to be great. Very helpful!

    Just bought my first Toyota Tacoma, it is a 08' Tacoma Pre Runner Off Road package, double cab, 6 CD changer, factory tow, off road tires. This is my first truck and so far its been a great experience driving it. I really like the outdoors and with this new toy I'm sure I will be able to enjoy it more. I'm looking to have some minor custom changes, skid plate, HID lights, and I hope you guys can give me some advice on what else to add.

    Nice truck. I've rarely seen the roof rack dealy.

    So, can you add a rack to it for luggage or bicycle holder, etc.


    Now you have to get the lift, wheels, tires and tint. Your truck will be a totally different character.

    I'd go with a Toy tec 3 inch and 265/75/16 AT's. Even better is upper control arm swaps with their kits.
