    So I recently purchased a 2012 4cyl Tacoma (was looking for a better gas option) and I ran into a slight problem... I honestly have no clue what to do with it. Please excuse my n00biness of knowing nothing about trucks. Anyways, if you have any suggestions of what I can do, it would be greatly appreciated :) Only thing I have at the moment.... A small Oakley sticker on the back, lol.
    Links to different things would also be greatly appreciated...
    :D

    Well first you need to decide a budget.
    Then what are you going to try to do with it? Off roader? If so to what level?
    Is this your DD?

    My budget is around $1,000 and I would like to off road. I'm not looking for insane offloading mods, just something to get by.

    Research it on forums and you'll see alot off people run this. I myself have order this and going to install on my new taco.

    Should be pretty close to 1000 installed, might go over.

    After that save up and buy new tires/ rims if you want a different look
