    So far I've added an Advance folding bed cover and since removed it. Gave it to my son in Maine, he has an 05 2wd. GT perfect fit seat covers. Weathertech floor mats and window vent visors. Waag center brush/grill guard. Hose clamp tailgate mod. Turned off the seat belt chime. Added Ultra-Gauge. Trailer hitch. Softopper. Replaced sun visors with slide out style. Toyota bed extender. Had Firestone Destinations and now Michelin LTX AT2 in stock size. More mods to come; Fog lights, locking storage in bed, intermittent wipers. Now looking for Radio/HU upgrade. and maybe a lift way down the road.
    I can't imagine living with less bed space.

    I think 4.30 s were only for 1st gen, They had alot more gearing options depending on the configuration.

    Not sure yet. Certainly an option :cool:. I would really like to test drive a set with the new gears before purchasing though. If treadwright started producing some more I would probably have a set by now.

    What did you get the seats out of? And I have a 2000 but I don't have the cup holders over the ac controls. What the hell is that. Those would be nice.

    Some bilsteins, OME 885's, and an AAL.

    They sorta look like some Lexus seats. Or maybe land cruiser. I'm curious as well. The look good in there!!!



    They have been out for quite a few years. Had some on an f150 like 6 years ago.

    I think the cup holders are from a 4runner but I got the truck with them and the seats are from a 01 accord coupe.

    I used to think regular cab tacoma owners were cool. Today all doubt was removed. I saw an older gentleman operating one while smoking a pipe. We're awesome!!!!!!!

    For now, though some cities have local ordinances that prohibit it if the windows are not up, or if you have children in the car that are young enough to require a car seat.
