    Hey all,

    I just came on board with a brand new 2010 dbl cab sport Taco!

    I've already taken her off road a bit and had lots of fun. I quickly saw the need for some improvements though...

    [​IMG]

    So, with that said, I went into a 4WheelParts store and had them ring up some numbers. I was hoping you all could look it over and verify that this is all I will need to get 3" lift and new wheels/tires!

    Skyjacker Component Box (part TC530ST: http://www.skyjacker.com/products/products_search/number_detail/?f_part_number=tc530st

    2 Skyjacker Add a Leaf (part TCR515S: http://www.skyjacker.com/products/products_search/number_detail/?f_part_number=tcr515s

    2 Skyjacker Shock Absorber (part h7045: http://www.skyjacker.com/products/products_search/number_detail/?f_part_number=h7045

    The wheels and tires are Matte Black 17" XD Addicts with 285 Mickey ATZ's. Am I missing anything? Do I need the 2 extra shocks for the back? Also, I asked about needing new UCA's but they said this was unneccessary. This true?

    Thanks for all the help and I look forward to my time here!

    Nice looking Sport. You will have many years of enjoyment from your truck. Is that dual exhaust? Or just ornament?:rolleyes: Looks cool.

    If you have the Bilsteins shocks, why replace them? You are going to lift it?

    Get good off-road tires!! I have BFG Rugged trails and love them. I 4X4 for a living. Never needed to lift it. I would like to level mine out. I believe with the hillside leans in my off-road work, moving further away from a low center of gravity is counter productive, like suicide. JMHO. Don't need to be rolling downhill:eek:!!

    Thanks all!

    I'm looking to add the lift to give the truck more ground clearance.

    And the side steps are the Predator side steps from my dealer. I think they're relatively new but most dealers should have them.

    Nice truck dude! I justg bought a Super White same truck. This is my 3rd Tacoma. The first thing I did was to take out the Secondary air filter and replaced primary with a K&N air filter $50 at advanced auto. The truck runs better with more power and it sounds good when you get on it. Enjoy!! PS Is that a Dual exhaust add on to your single pipe?
