    Hello All,
    I just bought a 2002 Tacoma Prerunner TRD, SR5, 4 door. Nice ride. I went from a huge Chevy Dually, CC, Dmax, LB deal. I really like it.

    Is there a member photo gallery on the site? I did a search and did not find one. I am looking to put some narrower tires and wheels not bigger and wider. More military looking like a jeep or 6x. I am not a wheeler anymore but like the look.

    Any pics or recommendations are always appreciated.

    Thanks. That's the look I was wanting to see. What brand and style tires? That tire size is what I had on my Chev Dually and was my first choice.

    What size lift do you have? I am thinking about 2" then the the 235/85 tires.

    Would 225's be narrower? If so, what is the drawback to them? I have a 2010 AC TRD sport with stock 17" wheels.
