    hey folks, i just bought a new 2008 tacoma (4 cyl., 2.7L). i am so damn happy with this truck, i'm glad i waited till i could afford it to get one. well now that i've had it a couple of weeks and noticed many on the streets i'm wondering what kind of mods are best (for my particular truck) and which are easiest. money is not a huge deal, i plan on this being a work in progress deal for a bit anyways.

    but here's what i have planned so far:

    Fender Flares (mine has none currently)
    Tonneau Cover
    Bull Bars w/ Skid Plate
    K & N Cold Air Intake
    and of course an new head unit http://www.digitalww.com/store/proddetail.asp?prod=DWW7000PC

    now my big questions are:

    what exhaust (if any) would be best for me?
    what suspension?
    what wheels\tires?
    and where can i find an aftermarket hood with a scoop?

    any help would really rock guys.

    Welcome! Sounds like you have a lot planned out. :D Can't help you much with exhaust or wheels. I'm running stock on both those fronts right now, and I don't know what's out for the 5 lugger.
