    I just bought a 98 tacoma. I was just wondering what the first add on should be. its already lifted and has a great sound system. Are there any technical things i should do before customizing?

    All the fluids are brand new, even put in new gas. Put in a new alternator, new head gasket, new rear view mirror, new hoses and belts and a new radiator. I'll post some pics next week probably friday or so. Any tips or tricks would be helpful!

    That^^^ Modding is pointless if your truck doesn't run. Maintenance first always. Welcome from SoCal!

    Changes the shift points of your automatic allowing the engine to rev more into the powerband before shifting.

    Oh and welcome from TX:D
