    im new to trucks. i've raced motorcycles for 2 years now. and i have a little 2wd 98 tacoma. its perfect for loading my motorcycle, cause of the height.

    but i was looking for some acessories to put on the truck.
    i would like a bull bar, or brush gaurd.
    maybe some headers or exhaust, something to give it a good sound.

    what all do they make for the truck.
    everytime i do a search for a 2wd, the pre runner pops up.

    here is the bike.

    You can get a Supercharger from Alpine Developments for your engine. That wakes it up pretty good. Do the deck plate mod, and get a decent Cat back exhaust, and you should be pretty happy.

    Are you sure thats a 2.7l 3rz and not a 2.4l 2rz? I think they only offered the 2.7l in the prerunner and 4x4, and the 2.4l was just in the regular 2x4. But look at, http://www.lcengineering.com/ they have prety much any thing you ca think of with performance upgrades for the 4cly. They are a little pricy but there stuff is worth every $$. Good luck with the upgrades!!!

    I have a flowmaster and it sounds real good, BUT I would go with the dynomax super turbo. It sould sound prety good and it has good performance gains by what everyone has said, flowmaster not so much:( Add a header with the dynomax and it will sound real good!!! Not to mension the performance gains!!!
