    hi im 18 and recently got my first taco 2009 sr5 2wd which has been my dream truck for years now. i already ordered a bull bar and grill and new headlights for it. my dad says that since he is paying for the truck due to the fact that it was my present i am not allowed to do anything to alter the gas mileage and i can't do any cheesy or crappy mods to the truck. i think its stupid to lift a 2wd but i was planning on leveling it and getting some larger 17" rims and tires. is this a good idea? also any mod ideas that are worth my time? :D :oldglory: i do have a flag mount on my truck already too

    You scored nice truck, check out spindle lifts, maintains factory quality ride but gives you 2.5 to 4" of lift. Search Maxtrac in the search threads function.
    Enjoy!!!

    Just avoid bigger tires......to a certain size. I dont think 265's will do much but 285's will

    Too many to list now.
    Bhlm! Changed the whole look of the truck especially if you throw some projectors in. A great way to not have obnoxious lights, but still have analog visibility. Not to mention they look mean!
