    whats up guys my name is dan. from cincinnati. had a fully build 240 for 6 years. sold it last year since i was 24 and my life style changed. now 25 and want a bad AZZ truck. looking for 16-17mpg also. my blazer only gets 13.5mpg

    looking at new 2010 tacoma's now. looking at a black sand pearl DC SR5.

    i need 4wd for the winter and hauling my boat in the summer and so on. i don't go offroading except when i going 4-wheeling with quads. i sold my quad but i ride my family and friends quads when i can.

    do you guys think the sr5 is a good fit since i don't go off roading???

    also have a mod list already. would like to lift it but i'm new to that so i've been reading that section more then others.

    any other problems then the tranny problem that comes up and the radio thing? i read the tranny problem is like a 15 min fix at the dealer if it occurs. the radio's go out in them also sometimes right???

    my mod list is simple.
    hid lights and fogs
    TRD exhaust and intake/filter whatever it is
    new head unit and led license plate light and interior light
    piant wheels install spacers to get those wheels kicked out/ new 16 wheels and 265/70/16 bf a/t
    black head light mod
    paint grill black
    1-3 inch lift
    bed cover

    thats about it. input on the lift would be nice i don't need the best offroad kit. like i said i don't go off roading. just like the look and a little height i cause i need to go offroad but nothing crazy.
