    Hey everyone, Im brand new to the site and have a brand new Tacoma as well. Its a 2010 TRD Sport, 4x4, Double Cab. I would love a little help or some suggestions. First off, I do a little bit of traveling because of work so any mods I do would have to be easy on fuel mileage. (I would still hunt and play around in it too so I would like to have mods). I heard I could put a 3" lift on my truck and it wouldn't hurt fuel mileage as long as I left the stock wheels and tires on.... is this true? If so, what is the best lift kit to go with? Please help, thanks.

    You might lose just a little gas mileage due to increased wind resistance...but the bigger drop comes from larger tires.
    If you aren't putting larger tires on- Bilstein 5100s...Less then 3 inch lift but that means you won't need new UCAs and you'll have fuller wheel wells...

    Welcome to the board!!

    Thanks, glad to be here!! So would a front leveling kit be better? And what would be better, a cold air intake or just a new filter?
