    hey guys! i live in charlotte, nc and i traded my 2009 MG TRD Sport for a 2011 MG TRD Sport last fall. i wasn't a huge fan of the 2012 and wanted to 'refresh' my ownership of this generation. so, it's time to do some modifications! wanted to say hello and get some recommendations!

    i've recently added the TRD Exhaust, TRD Intake, TRD Oil Cap, Window Tint, All Season Mats, Shaved All Emblems and Stickers, Removed Mudflaps, Door Sill Protection, Bed Mat, Viper Alarm & Remote Start.

    in the next month, i plan to order an RCD Lift (any recommendations as to where to get a good deal), also planning 17" wheels with DuraTrak 285/70/17 tires. (will need some recommendations on width ect... new to this). after it's lift, i get to see if the wife can get in okay, then i'll pick between steps and sliders.. then add lighting. also getting tacoma logos painted body colored. should look really good really quick. recommendations appreciated! love this site! look forward to meeting you guys! here is a pick of both vehicles before i sold my 09.

    That's the plan! Hoping to order the lift next week, order the wheels and tires next month! Gotta figure out the exact sizing of wheels I need!

    Thank you all for the welcome!

    (And I tried for the his/hers Taco idea... that was a no.)

    onlinetires.com has decent pricing on tires with no shipping right now and usually no tax. I just picked up a set two weeks ago and they were the cheapest that I found. Welcome to TW!
