    So right now I have Icon CO on my 06 Tacoma 4x4 (other mods too) set at 2.5". I finally have some money that's burning a hole in my wallet. There's a guy that comes into my work all the time and he has a set of American Racing Chamber wheels (http://www.americanracing.com/browse_atx.asp) with Cooper discover St tires in a 285/75/r16 with less than 500 miles on them (they definitley look that way too) for $800. I know I am going to do both mods but which would be better to do first?

    Homertaco grill, Light Racing UCA's, 2.8" front lift (5100's at 0.85 setting and Eibach springs) 2" AAL with rear 5100's, Wet Okole seat covers fr/ bk. 17 x 9 Incubus Crusher wheels w/ 4.5" backspacing. 30% tinted front windows.
    What is your alignment like? I have my truck at 2.5" and my alignment is good enough for me, as I have caster of 1.9/ 2.0 which was almost exactly what it was at before my lift (2.1/ 2.2). Drives the same from what I can tell. If your happy with your alignment, then I'd say wheels...

    Your alignment should be fine. Do the wheels and tires.
