    Thanks ;) I'm constantly watching the progress of your truck 'cause I planning on selling mine this Spring and beginning the mod journey all over again.

    The lower front valance is a 4x4 valence, custom painted obviously. The metal part of the bumper is now chrome but I've apparently been too lazy to take pictures of my truck the past few years.

    I personally love the Vossen 5-spoke wheels... I'd certainly love to find something similar for when I buy my new Taco (something that costs less than $500/wheel would be nice!)

    If the OP hasn't already seen it, there's a nice tire comparison tool on the Tacoma World web site:

    Using that tool, I'm thinking that a 255/40R19 seems like a nice size for a second gen Tacoma. That overall size is nearly identical to the X-Runner's OEM 255/45R18's.

    Magnaflow custom cat back. 5/6 drop with:Beefed Weld in Notch, 3 Inch blocks, Qa1 plates. QA1 racing coilover modified to fit Tacoma. Toxic rear shocks and OEM prerunner leaf springs with middle spring removed. K&N drop in filter
    couple important things to remember. If someone suggests a tire and you have an 01-04 and they have a 95-00.. your factory tire sizes are different and what will work for them will leave you showing about 10mph too fast. It's not fun. I suggest 18s because they wont look like gay ass cholo wheels and they wont look gay like 17s look no offense to 95-00 guys, you can use the smaller wheels and maintain a reasonable lo pro tire, 01-04 can't w/o kind of screwed up speedometers.


    Since the s runner comes w/ a 55 series on 16 in wheels.. you can run a 235 45 18 which looks pretty damn nice and it's almost identical to stock

    1st rarest would be a step side S-Runner. VoodooTrip has one, and it's supercharged.

    2nd rarest would be the base model 5 lug with V6 that isn't an S-Runner. Speed Freek has one; but then he put a Chevy V8 in it after his V6 blew. haha
