    As of right now, I'm not getting such great mileage due to most of my driving being trail riding as well at over 8,000 feet above sea level.

    But, back when I was in Missouri and I didn't have sliders or a co2 setup weighing my down, I could get at least 19mpg on the highway and as high as 21 at times. Now in the city, I usually get about 17 if I recall correctly.

    Many will say that most Tacomas should be getting the same gas mileage and say that the most I should be getting with my size tires is around 16-17. But no vehicle is exactly the same in my opinion. And my miles per tank show it.
    Shut it you two, I don't care if you guys believe me or not! I think you're just jealous! :p

    I really like the classic locks. I had them on my old 96 back in 2006. I would get them for my current truck but I got the regular MT's for free..

    Yeah, I decided I couldn't justify spending $500 on another set of wheels... Haha

    I bought a JVCkdr840bt, one Kicker 10" sub, and a 500 watt rms amp. Nothing too expensive, just a nice little upgrade. Should be here Friday.
    Thanks! :D

    I hear ya on that! That's why I went with my current wheels. I bought them on mud tires and sold the tires for more than I paid for the whole set haha.

    That should sound nice. I have 2 10" kicker cvr's on a 400w 4 channel (I need to get another amp), and an alpine head unit. It thumps hard even though I'm only using 2 channels on the amp lol

    Yeah it's hard considering I only payed $192 for my wheels brand new haha

    Yeah, I wanted something that was small and could be removed if needed. I'd be so tempted to bridge that thing if I had it! Haha

    I understand the space thing. I'm going to take out the bench and build a box to take the place of it so I can have my subs and my space! And I have bridged it but it didn't sound very good. Not clean and tight, I may have just switched a wire or something. I'm going to pick up a 1000w amp for them soon and put the 4ch rockford on the door speakers.

    I use the storage under the seats for jackets and stuff... I was going to get a box that fits between the seats, but it was going to cost $130. I got my box for free so I'll deal with it haha

    Oh okay, makes sense haha I just got a monoblock amp. I'll redo my door speakers eventually, but we'll see how good it sounds with a new radio.
