Bought a 13' Taco a few weeks back. Suggestions on what I should do to it.

    So! I'm super excited to join to Tacoma owners club and can't wait to start building it up to what I want. But I am looking for some perspective and insight on a few things.

    I've already added some rims with 265/70R17 tires.

    Need suggestions on ----
    Lift
    Brush guard / Light bar / Bull bar
    Off road lights like HID's or LED's

    Let me know if you have any input or other suggestions!
    Thanks!

    what kind of off roading you trying to do? IE mud, sand, trails, jumps the mods should be based around your style of fun in my opinion

    I was not at all happy with the tailgate on my truck, so I reinforced it with the steel plate reinforcement from Relentless Fabrication. Nicely made and makes a big difference. :thumbsup:
