    2011-12-24_13-31-50_19.jpgHello, I have a question for all who know....Im looking at the afe stage 2 si and a magnaflow catback, i have a 2011 trd sport v6..Will i like this combo? will it sound good and will they hurt my gas mpg? yea yea i know i have a truck and im not gonna get good gas mpg and im not looking to gain with this stuff aslong as i dont hurt it (yes im talking about normal driving not having fun) also thinking about plasti dip for rims and lower vallance on front bumper and tinting windows...Its super white access cab so i think that would look good till i have extra money to buy black rims...i figger that so i can peal off if need be.. Also in time thinking about a 2.5/3in toytec lift..its all good in your books?? I know this has all been beating to death and many threads. yes i have read alot of them but i want to get more oppions before i get back stateside and finnaly drive my new truck :D and get to work on it..Thanks much in advance:)

    magnaflow catback=will sound good.

    plasti dip for rims= dont do it. IMHO get them powder coated.

    lower vallance = never done it, but IMO it looks nice

    2.5/3in toytec lift= are u reffering to coilovers? if yes, than good on you.
    i would save the money on a coilover set and buy OME 885 or 886(if u plan on High Clearance bumper) with dakars leafs.

    then buy a winch.

    But remember, if u lift and put bigger tires, u wont be keeping any gains on gas milage. here is the way to get good gas milagehttp://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/4-cylinder/34594-mpg-mods.html#post547096

    Hope this helps. Truck looks good by the way:D

    Cool, yea im thinking 2.5 so i dont need to mess with my UCA... I figger 2.5 with a +1 tire will be plenty for what i need/do and will still look decent.

    i was think about plasti dipping my off road wheels next week. depending on weather. to see how i like it. i want black wheels and i don’t have the cash to have them powder coated right now. i have my badges done and it is holding up nicely. i did them last may.
