    Hello fellow Tacoma owners,

    My names frank. I own a 2006 white tacoma 4x4 TRD sr5 access cab. I have been reading the articles here for a while but am a first time poster. I am currently located in the desert, deployed with my squadron. I work as an aviation electronics technician in the navy. I am very close to having my truck fully paid off and am very eager to get home and start up the truck mods. The only mod as of right now is I removed my emblems and painted them black and threw them back on.

    As far as mods go, I am looking at the 850$ toytec 3" bilstein 5100 height adjustable coilovers. Also due to a speed racing moment, i popped one of my fog lights out into a bush offroad before I left. The wiring was all visually fine, but the light bulb is definitely no good. I wanted to replace them with possibly brighter lights. Any ideas? How do we feel about that particular lift?
