    Hey guys, I stumbled across this forum while googling wheels and lift kits for my Taco. Long story, but I've been wanting a late 90s body style Tacoma for a while. As you know, it's not a truck to find a "great deal" on usually, but about 6 months ago, I finally did.
    It's a 1998 2x4 extended cab in black. Not the 4x4 I wanted, but it's a slick truck with 80K miles. It belonged to a bass player here in Nashville, so it was really only used to drive to practice and to the tour bus.
    I'm ready to get rid of the 14" hub cap wheels and put a little more space between the truck and the road. I'm thinking about black 15" holies and a 3 or 4 inch lift with some Bushwacker flairs.
    Any input would be appreciated.
    Thanks, John

    Hi! Sounds like the perfect truck to me.
