    Hello everyone, I'm new to this forum, but I'm a member of a similar forum with my GMC. Anyways, Just bought my tacoma as a daily driver as I don't like driving my show truck daily. I can't leave stock stuff alone however, So I'm wondering what static drop suspension setups you guys are running and how is the comfort of the ride. Also, have you guys had problems with your suspension affecting the warranty. I've already killed a warranty on a new truck when I chopped up my GMC, not in a hurry to do it with this truck.

    Throw in pics of your wheels tooo if you're feelin' extra helpful. I'm curious what looks best... Xrunner wheels, 20s, 22s?

    Also, just curious, I don't see a ton of bagged 2nd Gens... whys this??? Are they a pain?

    LOL, Yes Lowered!!! Not sure why but it seems like everyone with a tacoma wants to lift it, 2wd or 4wd. Not any 2nd gens dropped that I know of in my neck of the woods

    ya, the lowered taco community is pretty thin, and even then the 1st gens are where most of the lowered trucks are at. It just seems like nobody is slamming the 2nd gens. As far as your truck goes go find Ryan's build down and that will give you a good idea what you need for your drop.
