    Hey guys,
    So for my 18th birthday my mom bought me an '06 PreRunner TRD Sport, which I am madly in love with. I have some questions thought and wasnt sure where to post. Anyways, I would love a 3" lift but I'm super tight on money. Anyone have any recommendations? Also, I think im going to powdercoat my stock tacoma wheels black, I know a guy who will do it for 30$ a wheel which is a steal if you ask me. Here it is :)

I wanna powder-coat my wheels too. where in southern california are you?? You have to come out with us on a trail run. I just started going and it a blast!!!
