    Hey, I just bought a '13 black TX quad-cab w/NAV.
    I put the chrome step rails on it.
    I'm interested to find out what are the coolest upgrades?
    Peace!

    Welcome from a fellow Baja owner. I think "coolest" upgrades will vary from people to people. Search around on here and I am sure you will find anything and everything your heart desires :) not limited to a SHIT ton of sarcasm

    I just bought the 2013 Baja Edition and am having the 3 inch Ready Lift leveling kit put on so I can fit 285/75 R16 BFG Mud Terrains. We'll see how it goes. I definitely do not want to mess around with the Bilstein shocks that came on it.

    Hmmmm, you know that the truck sits level stock right? You're going to throw a spacer lift on there? Are you also going to lift the rear with a block? To each their own but you spend a LOT of money for the Baja and you're going to circumvent all the hard work from Toyota's engineers.

    Sorry to hijack OP just curious the thoughts behind this.

    I just want a little more clearance for the 33s and I don't think they are going to fit with the stock setup.

    Oh... And congrats on the BAJA purchase raucous66 . I'm loving mine. That exhaust has a nice humm right? And gotta love that suspension.

    How did it go with your spacers? I just put in a 2.5 inch spacer so I can fit 285's.

    I ended up not doing the spacers. It would have put the suspension in such a bind that it would have messed it up. It's 2 inches higher than a stock tacoma from the factory with the Bilsteins on it.

    Yea I'm taking the spacer out. Wish I would have bought the trd-offroad and did my own mods, but for now I just want to fit 285's with out any cutting. Read some people did a a 1 inch spacer with the baja kit. I'm going to try it and see what happens.
