    Non Yet I just Got IT!!!!! but looking....!!!
    I got the truck of my dreams! I love everything about it (except the mpg but its not a prius!, lol)...
    I always wanted this truck and now I get ready for some mods.. what first, second, third...
    It is an 08' Tacoma sr5, i almost got the trd package but it did not work out...which is cool cuase now I can focus on an ARB airlocker.
    The truck itself has some nice aftermarket rims and All terrain BF goodrich tires but on the small side (16", i think).
    It is a double cab so we can use it for family stuff and it has a kenwood DNX5120 that I think is pretty cool and looking to upgrade to the bluetooth bt200 or bt300.
    im looking to lift it maybe 3 inches or so.. heard of a 3 and 1 but have no idea what it means.
    Love the storage compartments on the truck, underneath the seats in the back and what not and wondering what should go there...
    anyway it has very low miles and I m just happy to own it for now... any advice would be highly appreciated!!
    I cant believe I have the keys to this truck... (My Jeep wrangler feeling neglected)...
    anyway.. WOW...

    Search on here for lifts. There is a plethora of info. One of many setups I could recommend is Fox reservoir shocks w/ Total Chaos upper control arms in the front and Fox reservoir shocks w/ All Pro add-a-leafs in the rear. You might need wheel spacers with a 3" lift. I'm not sure with your aftermarket wheels.

    Non Yet I just Got IT!!!!! but looking....!!!
    Thank You all so much.. and yes looks like Im going to spend lots of money...
    Upgrade one is making the kenwood dnx5120 bluetooth with the bt300.. but i have no idea where to put the mic, little mods like the leds in the cab mounting of the flashlight and then im going to level the truck with a 3 and 1..if thats what its called... buty man this is exciting... so much to do but then the truck is new and you really don't want to mess things up..
    then i started seeing a stain here and one there from the previous owner and now I want seat covers first for the front and back! I look that up and everyone was something to say... wet okoles but man they are pricey! coverkings look good because of the costco warranty.... but should I look into something other than neoprene so my back dont sweat? ahhh man...
    But I love it...
    Cant wait for the first tune up!! thank you for welcoming me.. now to get dirty and broke! lol
