    trying to decide what to do
    I just got an '05 black Double cab longbed SR5 Tacoma. It is currently stock and I am looking to do a few mods.

    I would like to lift it, but not too much. I don't do any major off-roading, but definitely enjoy getting off the main roads. Any suggestions on lifts?

    I need to get tires. I am thinking about BFgoodrich All-Terrain TA 265/70/16 or 265/75/16. I am also considering General grabber AT2s.

    I am also looking for a cap. I am considering a soft top. Any thoughts?

    I also want to get a Yakima rack.

    I think I want to swap out the black front bumper for a chrome one.

    Maybe eventually add some running boards and lights.

    Any thoughts or suggestions would be great.

    Nice Tacoma!

    I have never seen a chrome Front bumper, not sure how well that would look but might look good on black truck.

    Soft tops are less expensive but hard tops are more secure.(knife proof/lockable)

    Welcome to TW and your truck is a natural beauty.
    As far as the lifts and the mods I suggest that you utilize the search option on the forum. There are many threads on the forum in regards to all the options and mods your looking to do.
    Again congrats, welcome and happy modding!
