    Hi to all! I am currently the proud owner of my third Tacoma, and I finally got back into a reg cab a couple days ago and immediatley traded in my 07 d cab for an 09 reg cab 5spd 4x4. In my opinion it is the original Toyota that started it all, so I think its time to show some love and show off our regular cabs, poser pics welcome, trail pics, mods, etc. Anything regular cab.

    I will post pics of my 09 later, as well as my 98 with 33s and 5 inches of lift.

    I’m basically done with this truck. I blacked out the flange on the rocker panel, got rid of the badges and mud flaps, replaced the stock antenna with a 14” shorty, and added the tool box and TRD off-road wheels. The last thing I’ll do is have the seats re-upholstered in leather.

    Here is mine. Helo wheels with 265-75-16 Kumho tires, N-fab light bar with Hella lights. I want to put on a small lift but I will probable wait till after the first of the year for that.

    I'm liking my '09 Regular Cab a lot. Ordered a tonneau a few minutes ago, yanked the secondary air filter yesterday. Need to find a nice seat cover for the bench seat but it appears the aftermarket ignores bench seat Taco's! I'd rather have buckets, I wonder what would fit...

    How do you like your 265/75/16's? I've been debating between that size and the traditional 267/70/16. I'd like the extra half inch lift, but not sure how I'd like the final drive gearing reduction. What are your thoughts with it?

    i envy your fenders...and it's good to see a reg cab with nerf bars, i think i found a black pair-
    but does anyone know if i can order/attach those black fender flares on mine?
    actual toyota, and not some other maker.

    The black ones are stock on the 4x4, the tube step is from toyota, i have no clue where you could get the flares, you may be able to by calling toyota, thats my best bet, nice truck zombot

    I could possibly take a pic on how it looks from the other side and how its holded on, i love the flares and how that their black and stand out, i personally like that, the flares wrap around all the way

    The problem with putting the flares on a 4X2 truck is that the fenders don't have the square holes for the special retaining clips. You might be able to substitute the factory clip with a round clip from something else, but you'll still need to drill holes (about 9) in your fender. Of course, you could always glue/epoxy them on.

    I went with 265/75/16 WILD COUNTRY RADIAL XTX on OEM steel rims, painted black on 07 silver streak mica, DC, 6spd, SR5
    I got 75,000km out my last set of these on a 92 4RUNNER.
    As far as gearing goes, minimal difference. gas mileage about the same 20-22MPH, at 100kph the tach shows about 200 rpm more.

    I'll use these for fall and winter tires, and finish the OEM Dunflops off next summer and replace them with something in a 265/75/26 mounted on the aluminum wheels.

    No lifts, no rubbing, very happy with them. :)

    Thanks for sharing, these are on my list. Anyone do this on their 2.7? How much torque did you 'lose'?
