    So my wife picked up my Regular cab Tacoma from the dealer this morning, and by this evening already had it lifted!

    Ok, well, My dad also got a four post lift yesterday.

    I'm Deployed to Afghanistan and won't be home until september, but I've got lots of plans for this truck for the next few years. Nothing drastic, but we'll see what I can afford.

    Coming soon!
    I'm going to update with a list of mods that I want to do when I get back to the states!

    First on the list will be the Weathertech digitals...

    When I get back home I'll install OEM cruise control from the toyotanation board.

    I'll also be installing the factory tow kit and wire harness unless anyone has advice on a better tow hitch.

    First on the dream list (things I want but would be last items to get)

    LCE exhaust header
    I like the looks of this better than the DTLT set up.

    Woot! Thanks for the Vote of confidence guys!!


    So here's the question of the day:

    255/75R17 OR 255/80R16 ...Err, stand by on that.. need to see if that second size actually exsists.. 255/85r16 does but I don't want 33's because I don't want to regear.

    The only difference is rim/sidewall height.

    Well that was an easy decision, 255/80R16 doesn't exsist.

    255/75R17 it is!!

    So far I'm leaning to the hankook dynapros.. BFGs in the 255/75r17 are my next choice at this point.

    Does anyone know if the hankooks have white letters?
