    Hey whats up guys, My name is Garrett. I own a white 2006 double cab tacoma. About a year ago I put a sound system in my truck, and am happy with it, but now I want something else. I need suggestions on what I should add onto my truck. I was thinking like exhaust, lift kit, new tires and rims, air intake, supercharger, etc. Please just post any ideas that you think would look good on my white tacoma or would really help its performance. Thanks guys!

    also please post the brands of the items you are suggesting.. thanks

    I'd go with "exhaust." My first mod. was a FlowMaster 50 series & I've been very happy with it ever since. :)

    ^ well said! LMAO. He asked for it.

    Garrett, welcome to Tacoma World. If price is an issue, stick with a TRD exhaust. You're more than likely able to save $150 between the name brand and a TRD from Toyota.
    Welcome aboard.

    BTW, you can always check out peoples build's under the Topics tab to see what other members actually put on their trucks versus them talking about putting something on their truck that isn't actually on yet. That way you can see how well it looks and fits.
    Just a thought.

    ok thank you for all of the ideas so far!! This website is really cool! I am definitely thinking of exhaust for my first choice.. Next probably lift and rims and tires..

    Ok..
    best sounding and worth my money exhaust systems?
    best height and brand for lift?
    Rim and tire ideas?

    thanks,
    Garrett
