    Hi there. Im new to this site and i just got my 2009 BASE 2.7L 4cyl Tacoma reg. Cab. It's COMPLETELY stock and only has 30,000 miles on it. i wanna do a few things to it to make it have a "meaner" offroad look without spending lots of $$$. I'm open to any suggestions!
    Thanks in advance!

    Well theres sort of a story behind it. Cali is short for Excalibur? haha dumb i know but LOTS of other people tryed to buy it and their credit wasnt good enough and i was the lucky one... and the guy at the delearship kept making jokes about the truck being like the sword in 'Sword and the Stone'. so as much as i have to agree, its a proper name that one cant deny.

    Definately not. This truck doesnt complain when it gets dirty haha... unlike some girls ive known.


    SO... I'm thinking a 3" lift and doing some 16" KMC wheels with some 32" all terrain tires. And black wheel flares.
