Hey guys just joined the site! I've had my Toyota Tacoma Trd Sport '16 for a few weeks now and barely getting the hang of all these lifts and tire size, etc. Wondering if you guys could shift me in the right direction with this build. I usually just commute to work and head out to the beach every weekend or so, not much off roading to do in south texas. Just would really want a meaner look coming from my Taco. I'd appreciate any help! Was attempting to post a pic of my taco but it wont allow me on the phone version, but 2016 magnetic grey!

Welcome to the forum! It should allow you to post a photo from your phone so I’m not sure what happened.

If you just need a meaner look and won’t be doing too much wheeling with it, you could go for a leveling kit or a “cheap” suspension lift such as a Billstein 5100 setup. Then go a tire size or two bigger and your truck will look pretty different.

I second this option. you will end up with a better stance and i think youll like the ride quality more than stock.
