    I have a 2008 tacoma, 4 cyl, 5 speed, 4x4 access cab. I bought it brand new and I'm ready to make some modifications to it. I have some things in mind but I want to make sure I do it right. So any suggestions and comments would be great.

    3'' ToyTeck Lift
    265/75/16 Mickey Thompson MTZ
    aFe Intake
    and a few cosmetic things

    Any Pros/Cons?

    All of that sounds great! The tires might look a bit small but not too bad.

    Welcome! I would definitely want a little larger tire, like steve said. Sounds like you got good plans though.
    Oh, CAMZ, sweet lookin wheels.

    I was afraid of going much bigger than that because of it being a 4 cylinder. How much bigger could I go and how much would it change the gas mileage?

    Oh, I didn't see you had a 4cyl. I would stick with the 265/75/16's then because you will feel a significant power loss with larger tires, not to mention the MPG loss.
