    Been looking at my first mod even after telling myself I will keep this truck stock for a few years, I just cant, every time I see another stock taco like mine I feel a strong urge to mod mine. Don't want to lift till my factory warranty is up (at least the bumper to bumper). So my first logical mod seems to be wheels and tires. Priced them out at $1450 (shipped and ready to install, already mounted and balanced), figure I can get $400 for my stock set with 7k miles, which brings the total to $1050. Is it worth it? Or should I just try to avoid the forum and be happy with my stock truck. Below is the setup and my current truck.

    I had the black beadlocks on my 2011 with my lift, Im ready for something a bit more "bro" lol since I dont have lift, some more aggressive wheel and tires for stock.

    Ditto. You're the one that has to live with it everyday. We don't.

    While I think wheels and tires will have a nice impact on looks why not start with something that will protect your investment instead? For me, the first two mods are always:
    1. Seat covers of your choice
    2. Tailgate reinforcement (Relentless Fab in my case)

    Too poor to list anything interesting.
    Keep the stock wheels. Change the tires.

    Well I want to go with the RCD 4.5 lift and that will definately void any warranty claims for suspension. When I had my toytec 3'' never an issue, they replaced a leaky seal on the front for me, no questions asked.

    There's a toyota dealer on ebay that sells the set for $998 I believe. Back in 2013 you couldnt get them without a vin, I paid about $200 more for mine used.

    Ya I flip around, I also like the BFD's but $1200 a set is expensive. Also like method double standards but think they only look good with a lift.

    Thanks Zach!
    I'm doing a slow build until warranty is up, I did 3" spacer for starters, plan to add Kings or Icon resi shocks later.
    Waiting on SOS sliders right now!

    Plus as I get older in age I realize I should be more focused on savings, house, paying down debt, etc instead of truck mods. This forum and my mod bug dosent help at all.

    As much as I wanted aftermarket wheels, the price tag was just a bit too high for me. Instead, I went with a few cans of black plastidip...looks good (to me, anyway), protects the stock steelies from rusting, and saved a whole lot of money for other stuff.
