    Just recently got my 2008 toyota tacoma handed down to me from my father. It has low miles and was taken care of. It is the best color tacoma... Radiant Red of course. I had minor intentions of modding it which only included lift, tires, and rims! That was not the case and over the 3 months of having the truck mods have been done, and I still have a lot planned.

    Mod List:

    Exterior:
    3'' Revtek Lift Kit
    33x12.50x18 Mickey Thompson Baja Mtz
    18x9 XD Monsters
    20% tint all around
    Blacked out badges
    8k HIDs in both headlights and fogs
    Fog light anytime mod

    Interior:
    Seat Belt chime turned off

    Future Mods:
    Rock Sliders
    In Dash stereo with Nav
    Weathertech floor liners
    BHLM
    Katzkin Leather

    Now for the pics!

    CURRENT AS OF 3/27/11:

    Sweet lookin set up man... This is the exact set up ive been wanting but wasnt sure if the 33x12.5x18 would be to big for a 3 inch lift. Ive been trying to find someone running these wheels and tire set up so im glad i stumbled across your page. Did u have to do much trimming for these tires and how much do they rub? Id appreciate any info I can get. Tanks a lot bro keep it up!

    Thanks. I really like this set up and has worked flawlessly when offroading :D
    With these sizes of tires you do have to do a little trimming. When i say a little i mean it! You are barely trimming the the inner side of the bottom of the fender. It doesnt not rub at all when turning or reversing. Its perfect! If you do this and it rubs, you just know to trim a little more off. I will post pics tomorrow so you can actually see how minimal the trimming is! Go for it on yours, you wont regret it.
