    Just bought my first tacoma and i was wondering what to do with her. She's an 04 3.4L, 5 speed xtra cab, silver mist. All stock and i was wonderin about a few upgrades. Just thought i'd see what some people thought i should do with her. I was thinkin about going all black. 32's on black, blacked out windows, black bull bar(with lights). I've got side steps on her now but they're chrome, so.... black maybe. And well, exhaust and lift. Just wonderin what is the best exhaust and lift(brand/type). Anyone's opinions would be appreciated.

    Best anything is subjective.

    If I life mine, I'll run Icon's in the front with Total Chaos UCAs, and Icon's and Deaver leafs in the rear. This will end up costing something around $2000, but it is an excellent set up.

    You can lift your truck for $600. It's all up to how you want to lift it.

    I don't have any set budget. It's all going to be done eventually. Just don't want to waste the time puttin garbage on my truck if ya know wha i mean like puttin too big a body lift in and tearing up joints and stuff or use some cheap junk lift kit. Going to be doing all the work myself. I'd like to know your opinions on lift kits and what type( coil over, blocks, add-a-leaf.....).
