    For the lowering kit hit up brian at streetacos http://www.streetacos.com/

    best tacoma specialized stuff on the market.

    As for the wheels, you can run larger than 16s, and if your going with a lo pro tire you will probably want to to fill in that wheel well. You can get a wide tire, just make sure your off set it right so you have enough room to get the fender around it, and you wont be hitting your fender. Off set is a very important number to make sure you have proper clearence, so i would test fit the wheels and see what fits.

    No.

    Brian only has a rear drop for 2nd gens.

    The front of that silver access cab has a DJM front kit on it.
