    nah, for a regular bull bar, you dont gotta do anything for the suspension. they are really light.

    a set of dick cepek dc-1 wheels would look pretty damn killer on your tacoma!! hell, moto metal's would look great....they both have the black/polished theme. and i agree.....gotta wait for the economy to straighten out a bit...........we are all dealing with that!
