    My 5 lug taco is taking me to Sarasota, Florida all the way from the beaches of Rhode Island starting on the 2nd of January. This is my first post ever on this forum, and the one year anniversary of owning this truck I bought for myself last Christmas Eve 2012 as my very first car. Truck is a 1998 5 lug 2 wd 2.4l 4 cylinder regular cab 5 speed manual in tan with tan interior. She was t boned at one point so now sports a black door and some desert clay colored body filler. It's been on synthetic oil and high octane fuel since I got her, wipers, four brand new shocks, high intensity headlights, steering wheel cover, tune up, new tie rod end and alignment, new air filter, studded snow tires. Needs paint, lift, turbo, body work, por15, wheels and tires. She was born in Cali and raised in Texas so she's not rusty, plus at 84,XXX miles she is still running clean. Hopefully I can get a cheap set of four 14" steelies to put the summer tires back on before the trip south so I can stop remounting tires and just swap wheels and all myself in the driveway at home. The photos convey my trucks wabi.

    I have never been so proud of this little one until yesterday. I went wheeling in a dry lake bed with a crew of 6-luggers and still managed to keep up at all times.

    Just went from a 2003 dodge ram 1500 to a 2005 tacoma regular cab 2wd. I am 17 and bought the vehicle myself for $5400. I was looking for suggestions with anything that you guys may like on these 5 luggers. Thanks for any input. :D

    Welcome to the 5-lug crew.
    When it comes to 5-lug mods it's pretty limited

    You can either lower (which some do)
    or lift it (which others do)
    Or you can do both (COUGH* RYAN COUGH*) :D

    I don't know shit about lowering so I can't help out there.
    But you're lift options are pretty limited. You can either get a 2.75" spacer lift w/ AAL from Fatbob's ($230) or ReadyLift ($330) there's no difference except fat bobs comes with rear shocks. Or you can do Icon's Mid-travel kit which I think runs for $1,300 and I think gives 3" max? (KC am I right?) or you can go all out and long travel it for who knows how much in total.

    Yeah I forgot that they sold UCA's individually. I might invest in that if the 5-lug is still with me in the future.

    I have actually bought a 2.5" lift for the front already just waiting for some more money. I have pro comp 7031 rims on the list along with bigger tires. Trouble is I don't know how big I should go. I don't any rubbing and if I don't have to, I don't want to put the lift on. I am willing to do the black box mod however.

    Hey whats up! Welcome to the 5 lug crew - soon youll want a 6 lug.. haha no joke :pout:

    I did the fat bob lift (I still have it FYI and Ill sell it to with super cheap) I went full MT Icons front and rear with TC UCAs... You can only get about 2.5" of lift and the other lift comes w/bigger tires (which you would want a regear)... You can get more lift with FULL LT (long travel) but that's some serious dough .. about $3k just for starters...

    PHIL!!!

    Buy my shit... lol http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd-gen-tacoma-marketplace/307220-5-lug-parts-sale.html (fat bob kit is all in there)

    Ky ky stop false advertising. You can get 4" of lift out of the front with the chaos and still be within spec for camber and caster. However this might put you at full droop. However, you could try to up size to an 8" shock..... As for the cost. 3k only covers the front upper, lowers, and straps. Does not include shocks front to rear, leafs or link, bucket gussets, cam gussets, or wheel spacers to finish the kit........

    Truth, but this way the guy wont feel bad when he gets confused about what he wants because of this
