    Hey guys Im new to the forums and Im going to be starting my build now after my mouth watering over all of your guy's ridiculous rigs. I would love suggestions so feel free to post or send me a PM. I have a 2011 Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport PreRunner. Im not really looking to lift it because i would rather not be laughed at by my friends for it not being 4x4. Im looking for it to turn out as eye candy.

    Throw up some ideas as to what u guys think would make it look dirty. I just finished installing my new Smittlybilt Bullbar so I will be posting pics tommorow and I'm waiting for my KC Slimlight driving lights to come in. Im a little scared to install those myself with all the wiring and such.

    04LT- Not sure yet, what do u think?

    NFK- Thanks!

    jhu616- Thanks! and yes I live in Duluth precisely.

    so my little bro took my truck out and this is what happened...
    [​IMG]

    I just installed it on my truck 2 weeks ago and now it is ruined...

    I have a question though... I would like to try to salvage the lights but they split open. I was wondering if there was a way to fix them.

    Is there any way that I could fix these and be able to use them again?

    If you know of any remedies that might work... please share

    had to take a break for a while, but I replaced the Smittybilt Bull Bar and Lights that my brother so graciously destroyed when he rear ended a Tundra.
    Tacoma<Tundra in the fight

    Im going to be lifting it soon. Im thinking about a few different types of lifts
    -3" Toytec Ultimate Lift
    -3" Bilstein Coilover Lift
    -3" Bilstein 5100 on front, 5160 on back with add a leaf, OME Springs
    -3" Icon Coilover lift

    any preferences as to what will give me the best ride?

    as for rims and tires I think I am either going XD addicts with Duratracs or Trail Grapplers of ATX ledge's with Duratracs or Trail Grapplers.

    Please give me some thoughts as to what will give me the best performance/ride quality.
