    Hello Forum: My name is Rick, I have been lurking for some time. I belong to other special interest forums, this is nicer than most! LOL

    Since my Taco has never been off road, I want to make it a better road machine and light hauler. I loved my old 76 El Camino, I would like to work in that direction. So far D rings in the bed is my only mod.

    I will be asking questions about making it a more road worthy vehicle.

    Thanks in advance for any help I can get.

    Rick

    Better handle wise you can put rear sway bar and better springs nd shock in the front

    Where can I find springs, shocks and sway bars for my ride?
    Everyone is so interested in big tires and off road, I have not seen much other than the lowered trucks w/bags.

    Rear sway bars look up hell wing and I'd for lowering and things like that not to sure there's topics on the forum about lowered truck search there that could help more

    I was thinking about the Tundra Racing lowering kit.
    A 2" in the front and a 3.5" in the rear was all I wanted.
    I hate the big gaps in the wheelwells.Wider low profile tires and a small drop would make a nice change.

    Right now a good fitting set of 18s is first on my list.
