    I am having some trouble on choosing which mod I would like to do next on my tacoma ! My birthday is coming up next month, and I really would like to do more mods my taco. I am debating on installing a train horn, a sound system, or blacking everything out. Just wanting to hear some of other people's answers who ACTUALLY have a tacoma, instead of all my buddies giving me shit because they have american made trucks.

    x2 i agree with this statement 100% :cool:

    it is. And i think you can mod the hollowed out bench seat to fit two slim 8'' subs.

    Me..i went for MAJOR overkill. I never use the power i have with this thing anymore. Though i usually laugh at every other system i hear drive by lol but yea, major over kill, would recommend it. I think ill be downsizing and puttign one of the Alpine type Xs in my supra when its running.

    Train horns are stupid. fully blacked out anything is overplayed and getting old. Some good tunes is never a bad thing but a nice aftermarket system increases your chances of some kucklehead breaking into your truck to steal it.

    I'm with these other fella's. Ditch the body lift and get a real suspension. It will definitely be worth it long term compared to the other things on your list.

    +1. Forget about spending money on superficial shit like sound systems/blackout/train horns.

    Get rid of that body lift and get a suspension lift. Many options in that area. Look up your options using the search function on this site.

    I say sound system as well. Blacking out would be next, pending on what your blacking out that should be a pretty cheap mod.
