    Whats up Guys, I am going to make this as clear as possible so none of you laugh at me or quote me for my stupid "English". Anyways.

    I just bought this 2010 Tacoma TRD Sport.

    ~~~~~Need Some Tips on~~~~~

    1. Oil (What's the best oil for a new truck)
    2. Miles (Miles before i need to change the oil)
    3. Tires (Best tires for offroad and street)
    4. Tint (How much will tint cost)
    5. Lift (4 in the front and 3 or 2 in the back)
    6. Rims (Any Suggestions?)

    For the Tint, Lift and rims. I am just looking for a estimate of good work.

    Thank you for your time.

    Is your truck 2wd? You wont be able to get 4" of lift in the front unless you put spindles or go with 6" lift.

    hey James
    I got my laughs in on your other threads..
    i guess noob bashin time is over jk
    honestly...search will be your best friend. helps avoid "newb threads" most of your threads...and questions...can be answered by reading your owners manual. take a look at the builds section to get some ideas and pointers.
    best of luck to ya bud :thumbsup:

    1st.. I fixed it for you


    and 2nd.... Before you do anything you should make sure you save up enough allowance,and ask your Mommy I dont think she wants you doing anything that could effect the resale value when she grounds your ass and takes it away.

    it also creates less drag on the truck when driving so aero dynamics improve, more power less drag, less drag better fuel efficiency

    Lookit this shit! He's talkin' like a human being Ma!

    This is how you get a polite/useful response young man. Keep at it.

    Now:

    1) There are a lot of threads on this. Most everyone will agree to run a synthetic oil. Mobil 1 is a good, well known brand that is widely available.

    2) READ THE F-ING MANUAL. That's what it's there for. It has all this information in it.

    3) There is no "best" tire. It depends on your application. Search the forum and learn.

    4) Get a quote from a reputable tint shop.

    5) Search and learn.

    6) Search.
