    Team stickers (they’re big ones so they add 50 hp per)
    The idea of such a machine is giving me impure thoughts.

    My next step is to lower my vehicle. Def. going with the SOS performance drop kit (only one i could find). I wish they would make lowering coilovers for the 3rd gen. I'm sure theres a way to custom fabricate a universal air suspension kit but would end up costing around $6-8k to do.

    You should create a progressive thread. I would like to see how this goes.

    That would be bad ass if they tucked the rear tires under it and got rid of those ugly ass fender flairs.

    xrunners drove like ass, especially in the cold. Don't miss them.

    Toyota lost a lot of market when they ditched the axle over spring trucks, really miss the mini trucks.

    Got me thinking... interesting map below. Only inaccuracy was AK... where the speed limit between Anchorage and Fairbanks is your vehicles speed governor...

    I assume your speed limits are that high, so people can get out of that state as fast as possible :D

    I didn’t realize we were the only ones with 85mph speed limits. That explains why I can never get the mileage that others on the site acheive.

    I can say that at 90mph, a Tacoma gets right at 15mpg.

    I am probably going to get it professionally installed (don't have the space nor the tools atm). but i would def. post pics once it comes in. Do you find yourself scraping in driveways and speed bumps?
