    I’ve got a 02 double cab in lunar mist.
    It’s 4wd but I’d like to know what mods would be good to start off on.
    This is also my first post on TW:mudding:

    Welcome! :wave: Well the first question is what do you plan on doing with your rig? From there we will go from armor to lift kits, to locker/re-gearing etc.

    I’d like some off road capability while also keeping it streetable as I’m often on the highway. Considering as this is a 16 year old vehicle, I don’t want to put an excessive amount of money into it. Any tips are welcome!:thumbsup:

    I looked into lifts, and many sites differed. The 6 in. Looked so nice, but the 3 in. Would be more functional. This is my daily driver and because it has the TRD Off road I have the rear locker and skid plates. Let me know what some starter mods would be :taco:

    There are a ton of options that very in price. Have you done much off road with it as is?

    Practically none as when I got first bought it I wanted to prevent scratches, etc. gas tank had evaporative leak so swapped it out and fixed some other check engine light issues. Should be solid and fixed up for a nice build that I can still use as a daily.

    Rear locker is a good start if it doesn't have one. Otherwise my best advice is start with armor. Sliders, skids, maybe bumpers before doing a lift. Keep any lift under 3" in the front. Where are you located?

    I'd start with an aftermarket skid and sliders. Go out and use your truck then get a reasonable lift (i.e OME all around with an AAL in the rear) then get bigger tires (285 or 33s) then get a rear bumper followed up by a front bumper and winch if needed. Just my opinion on how things should go.

    If the skids are stock they won't hold up to much but they are better than nothing. If I were you I'd start with a nice set of sliders and get some wheel time off road. You'd be surprised what these can do stock.

    On a side note, find someone to wheel with. I'm sure there is a group around your area.

    Great idea, I’ll do just that. The stock running boards are just asking to get caught.
