    Hey!

    Bought my first Toyota last week and this is my first of probably many posts. But was just curious if you guys thought I got a good deal on my first taco. 2006 trd off road 4x4 with 40k miles on it, for 19,500. Truck is in excellent condition![​IMG]

    The mileage sounds great. I think you did good but if you feel good about your purchase then that is all that matters.

    You'll enjoy it :) Toyota makes one hell of a truck, almost to 60K and not a single problem, major or minor.

    A Toyota Truck Owner's conversation:

    "hey man nice truck, what'd ya add to it?"

    "oh you know..." and continues on about mods.

    Ford/GM/Dodge:

    "Damn dude, my truck's in the shop again..."

    "Really? Mine too!"

    :rofl:

    now the question is what to do first with it?! the dealership put on brand new 265/70 General Grabber a/t's, so i'll be good on tires for a while. i was thinking about doing window tint and a leveling kit, but after reading all of these different variations of leveling/lift kits, i have no idea what i want! i'm thinking about doing two bilstein 5100's on the front and being done with it, opposed to the coil spacer. who knows! so many decisions.. needs tint and a tool box, but idk if i should go with black or chrome finish. gah!

    haha itll get dirty soon enough for sure! 5100's all the way around or will just two up front do? i'd like a little lift all the way around just not sure the best way of doing it. i'll be keeping these 265/70 grabber at-2's for a while, so i want to make sure i dont make it look too high for these tires. i definitely want a level look though!

    just curious, since im still learning.. would the tires (265/70's) look proportional with that much lift? i'm not going to be doing much offroading, just in the fall during hunting season.. so i dont need anything too extreme. mainly just for looks :)
