    First off would like to start by saying this site is the best!

    I have had tacomas in the past, I recently purchased an 2005 TRD access cab. I got it at a great price but it needs a good bit of work. It has caused me to gather a lot of questions about a variety of things.

    Interior:

    Need a drivers side door panel, new carpet, seat recovered, jump seat in the back are gone. Any where I can get any of these items at a good price would be greatly appreciated. Drivers side window does not work, need to get a new motor for it.

    Exterior:

    Looking to replace the front and rear bumpers as they are both banged up pretty bad. The truck is black,actually blacked out across.... The spare tire holder is bad I will need to get that replaced as well.

    Suspension:

    It has some kind of lift w/ 18 inch wheels... I need some help with this, I have some blistien 5100s a full set, but not sure if its the best way to go.... any one have any suggestions? I dont get off road, I appreciate a advice anyone has with this.



    Any help anyone can give is much appreciated.... Thanks guys!

    If you take a picture of the suspension, front and rear, we can identify the lift for you.

    Parts- Try LKQ- They have a lot of parts with a lot of shops nation-wide that can get a lot of stuff. You can also try RockAuto.

    If you have parts you like for a lift- Seems like swapping out unknown parts for known ones is a pretty good deal. If you don't have them yet...Feel out what is there. If I'm totally off base with it...Let me know!!

    Good luck with finding what you need.

    Sounds like you got yourself a nice little weekend warrior project :) Congratulations man and GL getting the truck back to her former Glory. the billys are one of the most recommended shocks on here for Tacomas so if you plan on trashing out the current lift id definitely throw on the billys with either Eibach or OME coils and a nice add a leaf or Dakar or All pro leaf pack. With the front and rear bumper post up a WTB in the buy section, As people upgrading front and rear bumpers will be trying to get rid of there stock ones, Or just upgrade! Demello and ARB make great bumpers as does Relentless and shrockworks. The rest of your items id keep my eyes out for a parts Tacoma, like its been said you might even find it on LKQ or rockauto.
