    I was thinking to myself today, would you rather have a fully loaded tacoma or save the money and get a lift?

    My truck is fully loaded i guess but i do wish i had a lift and some tires. interesting proposal.

    Fully Loaded, Lifted or both?

    Loaded. Only because around here, there aren't many places to off-road. Unless of course you count corn fields...

    I went the other way with the base model truck. Even with all my mods, I'm out of pocket less than for a TRD off-road.

    My guess would be stereo mods, leather, etc. I wouldn't not want leather but a full sound system would be nice.

    I went fully loaded, and got the lift done. Only reason I was able to do that was my deployment. If it wasn't for that, I pry would have just went pretty basic.

    I got mine fully loaded in 2006. 4-door TRD Sport. But back then I wasnt even thinking about mods. But even still, I'd rather get a fully loaded nice one...then just mod it as time went on which I pretty much did anyways.;)

    My plan possibly in this order.
    Truck came with leather
    Tint front Windows
    Double Din NAV/CD MP3
    Grillcraft and Lights
    Billy 5100s
    Wheels and Tires
    Sliders and Armor
    Airlocker
    HIDs

    Its always easier to start with the crap that you want than to upgrade later. Not necessarily cheaper though.

    I did both. And yes, you better be fucking ready to spend. This 4x4 bullshit is absurd compared to my other hobbies.

    neither, I like manual everything and the only reason I have a lift was to get rid of the axle wrap.
