    Hell, you could probably get a dedicated rig and wheels and tires for your 05 for less than $4500.

    Don't go for the fiberglass unless you long-travel your rig. And if you decide to take that route, you might want to consider All-Pro's new LT front kit. Only extends the lower control arms 2" on each side and allows the stock fenders to remain with 33" tires.

    Not a paid endorsement...just a cool solution that was only recently released. :cool:

    Had tons on the Taco's.... new truck is pretty stock
    i'd do bilstein 5100s front and rear and a toytec long AAL for a little rear lift, and then add some 255-75-17 BFG MT's on some 17"wheels, most likely black or black/machined wheels.
    this should set you at about $1500-1700 after an alignment and it'd look badass! save the rest for a future mod here or there or just to be safe with the economy in it's downward spiral.
