    Been wanting a Tacoma forever now, finally went and got one after college. Looking to set it up as a trail rig, any ideas or tips would be appreciated. Also looking for places around the Lake Norman area of North Carolina to go trial riding and camping at if anyone has any places they know about that they would suggest. Thank you in advanced for the help!

    I've been looking at the leveling kit from rough country. Does that 3" involve any drive shaft or steering linkage mods?

    Upgrades/ mods... this is the place to learn about what to do!

    The first mod:
    Rear Differential Breather. Don't cross water over 18" before protecting your differential oil from contamination. See link in my sig >>>

    The next mod/ upgrade might be to get some "real" tires suitable for four wheeling! Tires and air pressure in them can be more beneficial to your off-roading than 4WD.

    The next upgrades could be the suspension (better shocks) and off-road lighting.... and the list just grows from there!

    Enjoy your Toy... and keep your job... lots to buy and ways to play!!!
