    i just bought my 2005 tac quad cab , long bed, prerunner a few months ago and want it to look more aggressive. it just received a 3'' revtek lift and 285 60 r18 cooper ltz's but still doesnt have that bad ass look. is there anything else anyone can recommend besides crazy mud tires. i do a lot of driving and cant afford the loss of gas mileage. also, the only thing i regret is not getting the 4x4. i have limited slip but is there any other mods i can do to make it more off road capable. thanks again for the help and nice meeting you all

    Lights, brush guard, drop-spindles if you want more lift, black headlight mod adds a nice touch to the front end, complete new front bumper, etc. The list can get long FAST! :D

    A machinegun mount in the bed is about as badass as you're gonna get. Anything less is just expensive window dressing. :p

    There was actually a guy in Middleburg that had a machine gun mounted in the bed of his Ford F-150. It kinda looked ridiculous.

    Nothing better than a machinegun wielding maniac in your truck to deter carjackings and road ragers.

    i'm sorry missleman but you're obviously not an intelligent man if you think a machine gun mounted in the bed is ridiculous. either that or you just have bad taste

    Look, It started off with a real machine Gun. Then for some reason or another he put a fake one on! That looked ridiculous.

    Screw the spindle. Get the machine gun! :fenforcer:

    But if you must know :rolleyes:, the spindle will give you 4" of lift in the front without modifying your suspension geometry. Having a prerunner is huge advantage when it comes to things like this!

    ok that makes sense, a real machine gun is awesome but a fake one makes him an enormous tool
