    Hi! My name is Mike, and I have a 2005 Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport Access Cab. I just found this site, and it has a lot of useful information that dealers would not even tell you :rolleyes:

    My taco has a 3 inch Pro Comp lift kit, camo lined, Pioneer/Sony sound system, 285/70/17 Wrangler Duratracs, spaced in the front 1.25" on each side, clearance lights, Halo LED projector lights, running boards, Wicked Flows exhaust.

    I plan on installing Light Racing UCAs to hopefully and finally fix my damn alignment problem... along with Bilstein 5100s. I use this truck a lot in the summer on the beach for surf fishing. It also from time to time hauls and pulls a 6x12 utility trailer.

    So far my taco is a great truck! I've had it for 100k miles and only one problem (wheel bearing failure).

    Looking forward to contributing to Tacoma World and learning more about my Tacoma.

    Thanks guys, love my taco!

    Tacolover- The clearance lights are good looking IMO; Have not seen another taco with clearance lights!

    Superx2- Due to installing spacers on the front wheels, the A/T tires liked to kick some mud, rocks, and other debris into the lower side panels. This caused minor scuffs that I didn't really like. The camo line protection does a great job in preventing these dings and chips.

    stmpjmpr- These Halo projectors add a totally different look to the Tacoma. I personally think it's a great look. The lights are very bright; always being flashed by people at night thinking I have my highs on...:cool:

    Anybody know where I can get a pair of Light Racing UCAs for cheap? $450.00 is a little high.

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the site.

    Just a quetion, did you re-aim your lights after the lift? They may need to be re-aimed since you have a lift. That might be why people are flashing you at night.

    T Fades- Yes, I did re-align my lights. I guess I could aim them down a little bit more.
