    Hey TacomaWorld,


    It’s about time I put together a build thread…here goes nothing.
    Truck Specs:
    2009 Toyota Tacoma – Double Cab Long Bed - TRD Sport
    *Purchased new from Superior Toyota (Erie, PA) - ask for Ann Richter - she is awesome! Family and I have bought 2 Tacomas from her.

    Mods (in order of install):
    Custom XM Radio install and window tint (20% in the front, stock tint on the back)
    Bull bar (for sale now!)
    TRD CatBack Exhaust
    Tonneau Cover

    After messing around with the basic stuff, now time for the fun:
    6” Procomp Stage I lift
    285/70/R18 Toyo MTs (34X11.50R18))
    18” Method Rims
    Step Bars (to come)

    Pics:
    Clean XM install – Thanks Enormis Audio!

    Really like the Method 18” – wrapped in Toyo MT rubber:

    Special thanks to the following vendors for helping me out:
    Enormis Audio & Electronics (Erie, PA)
    Jeepers Den (Orlando, FL)
    Rock & Roll Offroad (North Richland Hills, TX)
    And most importantly, my wife for putting up with my indecisiveness!

    If you are in the DFW,TX area and are looking for a great truck shop, definitely check out Rock & Roll Offroad. They are the won Top Shop in the US for Offroad dealers. They have a rep on TW for doing solid work, quickly, but can be pricey. To be honest, I got quotes from various 4WP (just for comparison, don’t worry, I wasn’t going there), Don Davis Toyota (Arlington, TX) and Rock and Roll Offroad. R&R Offroad was the most reasonable and easy to deal with! I am thrilled at the price I paid for my turnkey lift set-up. They are all business there, don’t bother them with different quote options – show up and they will hook you up! Check out some of their other builds and rides here: http://rockandrolloffroad.com/

    That’s about it for now, eventually looking forward for a new project. Will hold on to this truck for a long time!

    In advance of the questions, I would like to make the following statements:
    MPG – Yes it will go down, who cares, your truck will drive like a tank. I will get about 320 miles/tank before fill up (accounting for new tires.) Check out my Fuelly stats here: http://www.fuelly.com/driver/jstreeterinc/tacoma

    Regrets – NONE! Most unpractical decision I have made and love it! Unpractical in terms of it doesn’t really add value, you pay more for gas, and could run into maintenance issues in the future. I did run into the VSC issue that others have commented on - it isn't a big deal, just something I wish I did more research on before I lifted my truck...regardless, I wouldn't have changed my decision.

    Thanks Beerye and Zimms! I agree, the LBs look a little low without the lift. Took me long enough to commit on what I wanted. I am happy with the setup!

    Just convert :) It drives like a tank! I am taller than any stock full-size truck. It is really fun to drive! You have a nice set-up there, I would save the idea for a 4th gen Tacoma!

    Lucky. My TRD OR only gets 300 per tank if I am lucky, with no lift and stock tires. Its the altitude, 7000+ feet fuel burns fast and less power. I would love to drive my truck at sea level.

    Good looking truck dude, DCLB is the way to go and yours looks killer lifted. Good choice on wheels and tires too. Your making me want a 6inch lift now!

    Thx jerret and Chris!

    @chris, I should probably delete my fuely for a little bit, I ave about 16-17mpgs with the lift. I have almost 60 fill ups, so 19mpg is lifetime. I get just over 300 miles before having to fill up. Honestly it gets annoying but oh we'll, only live once haha. I commute about 50 miles a day, the miles are more fun with my lift and I feel safer above traffic..l drive slower too so that's a good thing!

    16-17 mpgs is still great for that big of a truck with that lift and those tires. I'm not getting much better in my little 4 banger. . But like you said, only live once :rolleyes: Great ride man :thumbsup:
