    If this were your truck, what mod would you do next? I have been looking at bumpers, sliders, bigger lift kits, and all sorts of other things. So far I have a Rough Country 2.5" lift, XD Wheels, 285/70-17's, and a double din head unit. I was looking at all pro bumpers and stubb's sliders. Just debating what I should do next?

    X3 on deckplate mod! I definitely noticed an increase in throttle response, sound, and I believe MPG (last calculation was 85% highway, about 22mpg without stock muffler). Grey wire mod sounds like a good idea as well
    If you want to change the looks - I think a new grill would look sick on your Tacoma!

    I have been looking around for a deck plate. All the marine stores I have visited didn't have them in stock, and I thought I read that Home Depot carried them, but they had no idea what i was talking about. haha.. I run a construction crew so I don't have a whole lot of time to ever do anything. As far as a budget, I really didn't want to exceed $2000. Where is a good place to get a grillcraft?

    Nah, Dynomax muffler! and the deck plate mod, Gray wire mod is awsome too. A grillcraft grill you can get here man..http://www.grillcraft.com/applications/toyota.aspx

    After that maybe look at getting slider's ect. I really like the bolt on ShrockWorks one's. And then I would def. look at upgrading your lift, some Icon's or even Toytec coilovers that will gove you a 3" lift. MAN!!! I could just go on all freakin day!:D

    I thought some fuzzy dice and pink bull balls would look good hanging from my hitch, but then I thought it would be hard to pull off a hail damage claim to the insurance company from all the women trying to jump in at once. But seriously, I had been looking at the toytec ultimate lift with a complete leaf pack since my truck has 230,000 miles.

    No, I just tried to granny the pedal on hills and 'tried' not to cut people off like the typical NY driver. And when speed limit allowed, I kept it around 55mph-60mph. It seemed to work, so I'm going to try it again soon to make sure it wasn't just a fluke.
