    Alright so my new project for my tacoma is putting on a lift kit, grille guard, bigger tires, a roll bar with kc lights and side steps.. looking to keep it under $2000. Anyone have pictures of what this would look like and some products you would recommend that i use? Im hoping to keep the same billisten shocks on to save money so maybe just a 3'' lift?

    I was looking at a westin one it was only 500 i believe. As far as wheels go im going to see how big of a tire i can get to fit the wheel size i already have, then go from there. Also ive been seeing a lot of tacomas on here with a rear bumper that has bars going around the side of the bed and also has the towing hitch on it. what company makes those? sorry I can give a better explanation. lol
