    Hey everyone this is my first Toyota Tacoma. I Have had this Tacoma since October of 2010 and have loved every minute of it. It has 133000 miles and from what i have been reading from other forums on this web site that is real low miles. I am wanting to do some upgrades to my Truck. I want to Put a custom bumper and lift kit. it has 31x10.50x15 and am thinking of putting 33x12.5x15 on it once the Lift kit goes on it. I am thinking of putting on a 3" lift on it. This is the most solid truck ever. Tell me what you all think and any other ideas to do to this truck...

    Thanks for your time...

    A 3" lift would be a nice addition, but I would change the fluids (oil, trans, transfer case, and diffs) and filters. How does it look underneath?

    Everything looks good. i am cutting out the cat and putting piping to replace it. am going to replace the u joints. am getting some hard vibrations when accelerating and there starting to squeak. also axles need to be replaced when i replace them i will change fluid. has new CV boots and shafts.
