    Hello fellow canadian,

    I live on Vancouver island, BC and a I have a couple simple mods to my truck right now. Just de badged it and tinted the two front windows. I have my six in Fabtech with coil overs on order, along with my 35 in BF KM2's and 18 in KMC monster wheels. I'm also currently looking into ordering a leer canopy and considering fabricating a bed for the box which would be convenient for camping, road trips, sleeping in and storing gear underneath, etc. I am still looking into bumpers right now but have yet to find anything that I am pleased with but I believe it's just a matter of research and personal preference. That's my current set up and future plans. I plan on putting up a build thread once it is all completed for those who may be interested.

    Take care

    Right on buddy I'm to the east of you in calgary alberta. Let me know how that fabtech works out i heard its a nice kit but i have heard the shocks suck on that kit too and be careful i have heard some six inch kits can harm the frame. but now you can restrenghten the fram with gussets i was told straight from my toyota mechanic whose also a wicked buddy of mine im looking aat doing the procomp 6 and changing the shocks to fox shox and maybe better leafs and fox shox for the rear. BUT LET ME KNOW HOW IT WORKS AND BE Careful with the backspacing on your rims when you wanna run 35s

    let me know if your ever selling stuff because it would be easy to ship it to alberta!

    happy wheeling.

    I'm in central Ontario also.

    Got the windows tinted, some runningboards, extra bed tie-down rings and 17" sport rims.

    I'd love to get a URD or TRD blower and a LT kit, but that's not going to happen anytime soon.

    Cheers.

    theres some thinking !!! i like this idea im in calgary. It would help to know a few more tacoma owners and such plus if people have modded thier trucks we can look at each others to see where we wanna go i really like this idea but we need to figure out how many albertans are on here.... i think it may be more worth while to go to b.c. maybe and make a road trip and have a huge amount of tacomas join along the way out to honcover ? maybe an idea? let me know what you think everyone about a cross province or cross canada trip? i think it could be neat as hell maybe with a lil bit of trail rides as well? but they would have to be simple trail rides with aggressive sections because some people like me haven't lifted their trucks .... YET! and i don't trash on it i got a bush truck for that but it wouldn't wanna go cross country its almost off road only.... idonno let me know what you think and if there is enough people willing to participate maybe we will get something together either alberta or alberta to bc trip or ultimately cross canada trip would be awesome.

    thanks

    Ben.
