    Custom tube bumper and sliders, ultimate 3' lift,
    hello everyone. Found this site while looking for ideas for my new truck. I am now just exploring the site and hope to find good insight and share my own findings.

    A little about me. Well i am a school teacher in northern Alberta Canada. I curently drive an 84 land cruiser bj 46 on 33s belton lift pto winch right hand drive but with the cold winters I needed something that would start in the -30'C and a new taco was what I found.

    I bought a 09 TRD sport dark grey and quad cab with all options except leather. I like the truck but I loved my cruiser. I need to customize it I guess to make it my own. But for now it feels like a rental.

    Looking at the 3' revtec lift but questions about warranty voiding issues. Installing black rims (powder coating?) the OE 17's with mickey Thompson 32 or equivalent getting a custom rock slider made from a budie who does custom franrications because of the quad cab and the allpro front bumper.

    Maybe with time and some extra coin i can make this truck my own. Its sad to say it but ill keep my 09 to be an on roader and play with the cruiser. So i am going for looks over function. Then again you need to be aware that the area i live in is gravel/broken pavement dirt trails but ice roads (not icy but actual ice roads over frozen bog and rivers) and deep snow in the winter and isolation so it all needs to be done right and last.

    Worked on a Construction site due east of McKay. I'd say it was nice, but it was a winter wonderland, and I was stuck in a diesel 12 hrs a day which stopped producing heat the second the damn thing was in park.

    Fun driving up there though in the snow. :)

    and you can get internet out there ?

    thats cool man wish i drive in that stuff everyday.


    toytec is kinda cheap if you ask me.. get some icons or camburgs. and definatly get a full leafpack from either Alcan or Deaver; Allpro if you're really on a budget. top it off with some UCAs from Camburg, Icon, Total Chaos, or last resort; Allpro -- in that order

    a very nice suspension set up like this will run you around $2500, but will do exactly what you need it to

    Welcome to TW, things change and the vehicles produced now are made for roads with the occasional camping trip, hence the evo of man. Still the 09 should prove worthy considering what you have, (the apples and orange thing)

    Welcome to TW. I worked in Anzac a couple winters ago. There are a lot of lift options out there for these trucks. I have a full OME setup with a new rear leaf pack, for $1200. There's plenty of good people, and good info on this site, have fun with it.
