    I think 499 from all pro is your cheapest option, wheelers have Camburg ones for 528.

    I don't think you're going to find arms cheaper than that

    earlier gen tacos are a bit easier to align with a lift than the newer body tacos, and considering the OP is a prerunner in cali, he will likely end up wheeling the truck in the desert and later want to upgrade to LT...

    if that happens, he will never get a good return on investment on the upper arms as the demand for used aftermarket UCAs is not as strong as with the newer body tacomas...

    there is a whole string of older gen tacomas that have wheeled regularly for years without aftermarket UCAs and no issues...

    but of course, its up to the respective owner if they want to drop the money...

    if looking to buy it for the bling factor or cuz that's what everyone else is doing, the money could go to improving other parts of the truck like rear leaf packs and solid rear resi shocks and some custom fabricated shackles to soften the ride...
