    Hello everyone!
    I'm new to all of this but wanted to be someone who could contribute some useful information for anyone wanting to customize their Taco as I've done. I bought it new and spent 5 weeks researching to find some practical details in hopes to find just the right lift, wheel and tire combination. The problem I consistently ran into is, while there are lot of great pics out there, nobody listed specifically what they did to their Tacos. I want to change that. All of this said, following is a list of what I did to my truck:
    - Ready Lift 69-5212 3" Front/2" Rear. Installed myself in 6 hours.
    - Mickey Thompson 17" x 9" Classic IIIs, 4.5 Backspace, -12 offset, Polished
    - BFG 285/70R-17 KO2s which is a 32.7 diameter tire. A dynamite tire!
    - 1/8" spacer above strut tower on driver side front for "Taco Lean" (which yielded 1/4" additional lift)
    - Mudflaps removed/ no trimming required
    I hope you like it as much as I do! Let me know what you think?image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

    You all are sharp! Picking right up on my subliminal team message (as unintentional as it was)...
