    New to the website.

    Just bought a ‘17 Tacoma SR5 yesterday. Any do’s/don’t’s when upgrading? Planning on a 2.5 lift and tires. I’m getting old and I’m not tall....much higher I’ll need to run and jump in.

    Excited to have a little fun with it.

    It's a secret
    Herzlich Willkommen :hattip:

    DO to your truck whatever makes you happy...
    DON'T doubt your gut-feeling...

    DO anticipate to spend more for higher quality parts...
    DON'T settle for cheaper lower quality knock-offs...

    DO not listen to the negative opinions of the "why did I buy this Tacoma, I hate it"...
    DON'T listen to the negative opinions of the "why did I buy this Tacoma, I hate it"...

    ....those are my $0.04 cents for you...I'm pretty confident of my opinions I value them at 2x the typical $0.02...yeah, not humble at all...:rofl: Haha, I'm a jester :bananadead:
