    Hey guys, I want to start investing some money to make my tacoma more fun to drive. I was hoping some people could give me some advice on suspension ideas and other ideas.

    This is what it is now.

    Find a set of foglights on the board and wire those babies up

    I don't know how the suspension systems on the 2.7s are set up so can't be of any help there :eek:

    The previous owner purchased them, I'll look more closely after work tomorrow.

    I live down on long island, I actually work at a paintball facility in the woods. I enjoy off-roading on the fields after work. =)

    I assume that it is a 4x4. What kind of budget are you looking at?

    I would go with a desert look. Tube bumpers front and rear, a hoop on the front bumper for lights. I like my OME suspension, but you can go with Bilsteins too. I like the regular cab and white with black overfenders. Looks like a fun truck.

    Oh, I enjoy myself once the players leave. I've actually towed small honda sedans out of a sand pit in the parking lot.
    Yeah it's electronic 4X4 and manual 5-Speed.
    My budget is about $1,000 until I get paid haha.

    I'm thinking about getting a lift first. Although my friend with an F-250 cannot help me. I'm not sure how high to make this truck because it is relatively small compared to a double cab or access cab.

    OR

    I was thinking about getting some more "knobby" tires. Something nice for off-roading and driving on the street without too much road noise.
    I have 265/70 R16's currently.

    I cannot find the model type of the Rims. I just know their American Racing wheels.
