    Hey everybody, I'm obviously new to this site and have a few questions. I have a 2012 Tacoma TX TRD (2WD). I'm looking for a few mods and would like to get a gew people's input on which manufacturer makes good quality yet affordable parts for my truck. Here's a list:

    Suspension- Looking to raise it 4 or 6 inches. 1.5 or 3 inches just seems like a waste to me.

    Exhaust- Looking for an aggressive sound. No honda rice rocket sounding things :p

    Tires- Looking for the widest and biggest tires i could put on with the 4 or 6 inch lift.

    Rims- I currently have the new black TRD rims which i think are sweet but I'm afraid they might be too small with the lift. I'm not lookin to throw some music video 22's on my truck. Anything under 20".I believe they are currently 16 inches.

    Lighting: I've already smoked my tail lights. some smoked or dark colored LED headlights would be sick.
    CAI- I heard that for this model tacoma you have to modify the cai and place it in front of the radiator. Is this true, If so what brand makes the best cai for my truck?

    Lastly, Where can i find the toyota factory roof racks?? Ive looked online but NONE are exactly like the ones you would get from a dealership! >:|

    I live in Bakersfield, CA, and I spend my weekends in LA, so if you can refer to a shop or business in those areas that would be great. I'm open to buying online as well though
    I know this is a lot, but I would appreciate any input anyone has to say. Thanks,

    -Erik

    For reference, he was making a joke. The joke was that your thread title could be interpreted as a list of moderators you were interested in - thus weird. HA HA. Good job flying off the handle before thinking.

    Great 2nd post man. Hahahaha
    In all reality though, there's nothing wrong with a 3 inch lift and you can put 33's under it which is what most guys do. Truck gets a little tip happy being up that high.
