    So my 2006 super white tacoma is awesome, i love it to death, but simply put it needs to be wider, beefier, have a better road presence, be unique. I had a jeep wrangler some time ago and the wheels stuck out on the sides to the point without a lift, it still looked bigger. I have seen the spacers, am a bit hesitant and don't know if i can afford a lift/tire package.

    Chime in if you have any suggestions, this forum is rad. It takes up a lot of my day.
