    Yes, I still have my 2007 Taco....! :)

    Hey all, it's been FOREVER since I actively posted on here since my HID install DIY way back in the day; but I thought I'd toss in a quick pic of my new shoes. The ride is just so much better than the crappy stock Bridgestone Duelers. Went up to 70 height from the regular stock 65 and I love the way they look. Aggressive, but not "redneck dueling banjos"....LOL.

    I'm not opposed to the "redneck dueling banjoes", but I think they're too much for a Taco . I've been looking for new tires to FINALLY replace the Duelers too.. was going between BFG A/T's and the Nitto Grapplers like you've got.. i think you helped me decide (so, THANKS!). I love the look and think they'll look good on mine too. I'll post a pic or two when I get them put on in the next month or two.

    by the way.. how do you like the ride of them so far? are they any louder than the duelers? I can't imagine MPG's would suffer at all considering the diameter hasn't changed.. ?

    Slightly less MPG so far by 1-2; and the ride is great. Tires are just a hair louder but you'll never notice after a day or so - it's that tiny a difference.
