    i have a 1997 toyota tacoma 4 cylinder 2.7 manual 4wd. this is what i want to do and i have heard mixed stuff on what i should do. any tips

    lockers front and rear, 33s, 3 inch lift, front, rear bumper, sliders, light rack, total chaos front end long travel.
    but i have a dirt bike and a pop up camper to tow and with a 4 cylinder i could only do this with changing the gears.... or should i sell it and buy a 6cylinder trd then do all this stuff to it??

    thanks for your help guys! any help appreciated
