    K&N Drop in, Bilstein 5100's in front with Readylift kit on top for a 3 in. lift in the front and a 1 in. block in the rear. Next project is going to be TRD Supercharger and Camburg coilover long travel system with custom skid plate and tubes. Maybe some new tires and wheels then..
    Ok..heres what I am thinking..I got my 2008..loving it..impressed with the stock power..not bad..in my opinion it seems to have a decent powerband while going thru the gears..what could a supercharger hurt?..

    I am gonna be doing my 2.5'' lift in front and runn 33' tires on my stock wheels ..to me..that will be enuff lift..I wanna focus more on engine performance rather than spend thousands on suspension and thousands on engine..i dont have that big of a pocket book..and the wife will not allow it..that I can guarantee..:D

    I am not one to self install a supercharger..i just dont know and would want someone who is definatley a pro doing it..

    Does anyone have any advice for me and this project that I am gonna be looking to do..

    I daily drive this truck..and Im a weekend warrior out in the dirt..thats about it..i dont rock climb..or anything seriously hardcore..but I like to run some mild to medium trails in the local mountains and desert..so my lift is gonna be fine for me..I just wanna see about getting a little more "Ummphh" outta the Taco..I know its there..I just wanna get it the safe way..and have it done right..by a pro..

    So your just looking for an installer for the S/C kit? or you have questions about the kit itself that you want answered?

    I have an 07, I did a 3" lift on the front and can only fit 32" tires. Do you know anyone who fit 33" tires under a 2.5" lift.

    To answer both questions for Spyder and Reid..yes spyder I would like to know both reputable people that can install my supercharger and provide the right information as to what else would compliment the supercharger..ie..re gearing..pully swaps..im very new to the supercharger thing..so I wanna make sure that when I get it done..its done right..and it wont blow my engine up..

    reid..I have a buddy whos sister has a 07 taco..with the Daystar Polyurethane Shock Spacers..I believe the lift is 2.5'' in front after those are added..and she can run 33'' tires with "minor rub"..I plan to do that to my truck..I wanna achieve a nice pre runner stance..and i was told that doing that does it..and its relatively cheaper than a suspension swap etc..but..I always wanna get as much info as I can before I do anything so thats why im gonna be talking to my local 4x4 shop to see whats available..I dont do installs my self on these things..I just take my truck to a shop and pay to have it done..so im gonna do some home work and I will let you know what I find..

    Sorry forgot to mention it on another post, but the Toytec lift kit comes with aluminum spacers, might be more durable than plastic ones.

    As far as a place that can install it for you, i can't help you there.

    As far as what compliments it, not blowing it up, etc. i can help.

    Installing it how it comes will work just fine. If you want to see a bit more power out of it, first thing to do would be open up your exhaust (headers, y-pipe, catback). The kit ships with an 85mm pulley giving you approx. 5psi at redline. URD sells 80mm pulley's which will increase boost to approx. 7psi at redline (BIG difference).

    If after all that you still want more power, it'll get a bit more complicated.
