    Aloha all,

    Right now I am a nissan owner, however just today by truck caught on fire, so i am having it fixed and then i am going to trade it in (not much damage) CAP in for my car stereo blew up and bunt most of the inside of the truck, but left about 50% so insurance wants to fix it... Anyways, I am sure the smell prob wont go away, so i decided, get it fixed and then have it really cleaned (detailed really good) and then trade it in :)

    Sad part is , its a lifted 2009 Nissan pathfinder, 7" 35's etc... I did put alot of money in it, but oh well. i dont want to deal with it anymore as i can stand the smell of smoke..

    So that being said....

    I want to buy a Tacoma! I know what i want in trim, but I dont know if things like see below are worth it, to work it into the finance (i can get a really good interested rate so its not like it will cost much more)

    1. TRD Air box (I know I want a intake)
    2. SuperCharger (I do want the truck to be fast, but not sure if the TRD SC is worth 4k)
    3. Roof rack - anyone have pro's and cons?
    5. CAT Back exaust - Humm.... this vs intake i think?

    Other then that , I am going to order it fully loaded with all of the options just not sure about the ones above....

    I will be putting a stereo in it ASAP, but i want to do the JL Clean sweep so i can keep the factory BT controls and etc.....

    are you on the Big island? (Out of curiosity)

    I'd get the SC and exhaust- then get a drop in for the intake. No experience with the roof racks though.
    Pics of the nissan?? :D

    I am guessing if i get the factory SC, then it will be covered under the factory warranty.. i guess at least that's a good thing.

    True. Actually the only reason I'd go for it myself.

    That SAS'd runner is SA-WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET. (and the Nissan too)

    ya whats sad, when i moved to Hawaii, I sold it..

    I though to myself, why would i want a lifted truck there LOL....

    Damn it lol... I did all of the work myself on that one, I miss it, however its older now, so ah well......

    IFS is good for the beaches over here, I will prob end up doing a 3" lift or something, maybe a fab-tech, but who knows...

    Supercharger and exhaust all the way! I'd rather drag my crap vs. sticking a ugly roof rack on my ride. Personal opinion. Not sure about the 3" fabtech setup but I just had the 6" installed and I absolutely love it. Post pic's when you can!
