    As the subject says; if you had 2 grand to spend on anything for your taco what would you buy first? this is mainly pointing out to the stock tacos so if you have aftermarket equipment what would have you done first with 2 grand? I don't know if i should look into a lift kit/tires or just small things and do a lot.

    any suggestions would be great!

    Yea that would work great, and technically the spring (coil) is what is doing the actual lifting.

    I like these tires and have been looking for something like this, heres to another dumb question... in order to use these tires do you need to buy a new set of rims or will these fit on the stock rims of my 11 trd or dc?

    If you do tires + rims your gunna be around 1800 already. If I were you I'd keep the 2 grand and wait until you have enough for either King or Icon coilovers in front, King or Icon in back, and new leaf pack or AAL. Do it all at once is my advice.
