    2 questions:

    1. I wanted to put some tube steps on my 04 tacoma xcab. I think this particular brand is only good for the 05 and newer models. Does anyone know of another brand they would recommend and where to purchase?

    2. Also, I have a shell on my bed. It seems that the extra weight of the shell makes the back end of my truck "sag" a little bit. It's barely noticeable, but it bugs me. Also, I was thinking of putting some tires even bigger than the ones on my TRD package. Could someone recommend a suspension package and/or lift package? Or would this not even be a good idea?

    Obviously, I'm a bit of novice, but I'd appreciate any help.

    There's a ton of different types of tube steps available.....different styles, different 'look', and different price ranges.

    You're probably gonna need a new set of springs with a slight 'lift' in them to adjust for the additional weight. If you want bigger tires - then you'll want a bigger lift. Again, lots of options.

    On this forum - if you look at the blue bar going across the screen - you'll see the *Search*. Click there and type in something like "Tube steps". You can use a variety of words to search for 'em.

    Or - use these other forums to search for what others have done.

    and there's always http://www.google.com/

    Good Luck!
