    I'd appreciate anyones input on outfitting my new - as of today - Tacoma. It's a stock truck and I'm planning on putting the Bilstein 5100 shocks on the front only and painting the rims black. What I also need is:

    1) A nice tow hitch, in black
    2) Side steps, in black
    3) A cover for the bed
    and maybe
    4) A brush guard with a winch and lights.

    I don't want to do any fender modifications but would like to also beef up the tires. What are my options?

    Can you guys can point me in the right direction - Thanks.

    I'm hitch hunting too, with 3500 lb /tow i was gonna get a bumper 2" hitch, cant find one. So any frame hitch you get will be overkill at 5000-6000 to rating, so I'm gonna get a $120 u-haul, said to be made by Valley. Thats the digested version of forum/web surfing for just hitches.....:D ENJOY AND WELCOME TO TACOYOTA WORLD!:wave:

    I got the hitch and side rail taken care of today. So I'm still in need of suggestions on tires, a bed cover, and the front brush guard. Thanks.

    Sorry, I wouldn't have thought pictures of a standard tacoma where worth posting. I stopped by my local tire guy and he's going to put 265 tires on it and the bilstein shocks. An auto trim company I work with is doing the hitch and side rails. I'm still looking for the cover and bull bar. When I get the work done I'd be happy to post some pictures.
