    Bought a Tacoma a few days ago and got pounded with snow the day I brought the DC home. Some how got suckered into the TXPro, actually got it for less than a TRD at another dealer but I dont like the rims. There seems to be more information on this site that I can handle at the moment and wondering if I can ask one quick question. I know it is covered in the forums... but what is the ideal lift? I want a small lift so that I can get the equivalent of about 32x9.5 MTR's on the truck (similar to the look of senor Taco). Looking for a increase in ride quality only and dont want to end up shaking down the highway, etc. I have never had a Yota so I dont even know where to start. Went back and forth on the colors... wish that I had gotten white now.

    first off welcome! and if you only want to run a 32 a 3 inch lift would be more than enough do a set of coils and a add a leaf or a new leaf pack and youll be good to go toytec has a good lift called the ultimate lift they say the coils are a bit stiff tho but its all personal preference you know but check out that its a good place to start

    Welcome to the site! Pretty sure you can stuff 32x9.5 tires in there without a lift, but if you want a little one, toytec is the way to go. Great products and great customer service, including installation support.

    Enjoy your new truck, she's a sexy beast!

    those wheels on that txpro are the ones with the fake bead locks right? i work at a dealership, i had to put different tires on a set of those wheels... honestly i think they look better without the fake bead locks! they just screw off....

    Welcome to the forum. Your Taco is identical to mine and I love it. I think I was one of the earlier buyers of the T/X Pro (purchased on labor day 2010).

    To run a 32" tire a nice moderate lift is bilstein 5100s set at 1.75 in the front with a 1.5" add-a-leaf in back. Won't push anything too hard and looks great.

    I was thinking about unscewing the locking ring, as soon as I get rid of those horrible mud flaps. I got a little screwed by my dealer who said the locks were real. I have owned a few 4x4 rigs and always thought they were illegal in the USA, which they are. He also said that the TXPro had a different intake manifold and the TRD exhaust. I dont see any word of a different intake so I would assume this is complete BS. I bought the truck "sight unseen", drove down to New Hampshire to get the truck... looked at it and then drove it off. I had never seen one before up here in Maine. I do have some of the complaints that I have read here on the forum already; a few squeeks, no leather which is NUTS, etc. I traded in my 2004 Audi S4... so I love this taco, but it is a bit of a trade down even thought it will be much more useful in the future than a 375 hp S4.

    Any one have a picture of some 32's with a mild lift. Any problems with it? Thanks in advance.

    I haven't seen any of these trucks around here either. Did you buy it from Maine Mall and pick it up in Gorham?
