    I have a list of mods I want to do to my truck, I got the BIG one out of the way last weekend (LIFT, TIRES, AND WHEELS).
    Top of my list now is a front bumper, but what do y'all think looks best on 1ST GENS? I want something that is reliable and looks good as well. And what other mods should I do?

    Here's how she sits now

    Well I done the DP mod, I was looking into a throttle body spacer and I've heard it wasn't worth it. And exhaust, I have been considering but I want to hear other people's (in person) and see what I like. Do you have any recommendations on what sounds good on the 3.4s that don't sound like 4bangers?

    Our little 190HP Tacomas won't benefit from a full 3" exhaust.

    Free mods: Remove the chrome grill guard, plasti-dip your handles and front bumper black, remove the window rain visors. I think those combined would really clean up the look of the truck.

    Performance mods: Straight flow through exhaust, Amsoil air filter with either the Deckplate or Elbow mod.


    Other than that your wheel/tire combo looks good. :)

    I've been looking at your bumpers for a while and REALLY like them! Roughly, how much does a base bumper with single hoop weigh?

    about 95 lbs, after taking your stock stuff off and putting this one on you'll be gaining about 50-60 lbs to the front end so its not to much of a difference

    most people have converted them into there corner parking lights, its really easy. the bumper that i just built this week has two 2" holes, one in each side for an LED blinker to be inserted next to the fog lights.
