    Nice 6spd,V6, very solid truck
    None currently, but I would like a better sounding exhaust and perhaps a cold air pack and some color coded step bars
    Welcome Bigbaco, to the forum, two of my best friends have Yoda trucks and they both have trd superchargers and one has the a Borla system, and a some what louder exhaust than stock. For some reason I would perfer something a bit throatier.
    Flowmaster gives you the option of listening to the package that you pick, so that might help. I also have a friend who has a brand new Chev truck and picked a flowmaster system and did not hear a similar system before buying it and it was way to loud. His new truck had 52miles on it when they cut the new system off. They did replace it with a quieter muffler but you never know. It is a shame to get the wrong system, so I hope you might be able to find a system currently on some ones truck that sounds similar to what you want.

    I sounds like you really are building a full blown truck. Best of luck. Please pass on what you find out.

    2010 Tacoma Off Road
    Tinted front cab windows to match factory tint
    hi signing in so i don't have to constantly be asked to sign in. I have a White 2010 Off Road, short bed,. 31,700 miles. Just dumped the BF Goodrich stockys for believe it or not Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max's more of a highway ride as I only off road 5% time and not boulders, I do fire roads, new construction roads and wood roads I live in a hilly area... I had also had a 2009 Sport, both these trucks I bought new but the sport was a long bed and a MFr to park in a parking lot or make a quick turn or a K turn so I took a 4 grand hit and waited a year and traded it in for my Off Road, I plan to take off mud flaps as everytime I go off road I stub em. I found that the tires on my Sport Grandtek 20 outperform the Goodrich ta off road in everything but mud. So I went with a similar tire. There blackwall and look sharp with Tire shine with my 70% tinted windows all the way around, took it to window guy and had them match my fronts with backs for 80 bucks. The other thing looking for GREY front grill to replace the chrome one on the off road also my chrome rear bumper is pitting again and i am going back to toyota and requesting a black one to replace the chrome or if worse comes to worse another chrome. Peace out, oh live in Orange County New York
