    Greetings TW!

    I just bought a 2005 TRD Off-Road 2 wheel drive and am looking to start modding! I have seen a few places in the valley for buying mods such as Desert Rat and wanted to see if anyone here had some used stuff I can buy.

    I want to get wheels and tires to start then do a lift. I dont really plan on doing much maybe some light off-roading such as trips out to Bloody Basin, Salt River, and the way out towards Canon lake for camping etc. I am thinking maybe a 1.5in lift or something to make it look a little more natural with 17s on it.

    Ive tried Craigslist and looked around here a bunch but no luck finding anything so I figured I would try here.

    Thank,
    Rob

    Greetings friend. I have had some work done at desert rat and they didn't do it right the first time and didn't give me my stock components back like I asked. I had to get them myself and it took an outrageously long time for them to complete the work. But other guys have had no trouble with them so it's the luck of the draw. 4 wheel is a good place to go because they back their work for a few years. Jhey depends on what you want. If it's nothing extreme a lot of guys on here could help you do it. Look in the regional AZ page. Good luck amigo.

    Dude, 4 wheel parts is the worst! You're better off getting help from fellow members who know exactly what to expect because we've put the same lifts on our trucks. There's plenty of mod days and people who could help. Read more in the suspension section and you'll learn lots, Welcome!

    Welcome to TW! Not sure if someone threw this out there already but sierra expeditions in tempe is a solid place to start.

    I have a set of tsb leafs for sale if youre interested for a rear end lift of about 1.5 inches. sorry for the shameless plug.

    Enjoy your taco!
