    Just bought a used 2005 Tacoma with 92k miles on it. It is completely stock as the person who owned it before me lived only in Arizona and the truck never left.

    I want to do the typical stuff to it; lift it 3 in, wheels/tires, headlights, grill maybe some minor engine stuff but that is all to come in time as I looked up prices and just wheels and tires is 1700 o_O

    Anywho, glad to own it and be a part of this forum now, tons of good information and advice for rookie taco owners like me :D

    nah just kuddos for getting tires.

    revo 2, BFG a/t, m/t, grabbers... etc are some options. all are great some are more suited for specific tasks. do some research (use the search button) and you will find a tire thread for all makes and sizes. please do not start a new one.
