Got my 3rd gen September 11, 2017. If I would've searched right, would've got a TRD OR 4x4 but here I am.

Near Future mods & plans:
4" maxtrac spindles & blocks until I can get an AAL or full set of leaf springs

LED headlights & fogs
Paint match the rear bumper

Far future mods & plans:

Damn I'm late lol.
For now just doing a simple mall crawler/weekend wannabe build.

4in maxtrac kit
18x9 fuel hostage (the woman really wants these)
265/70 wild peak at3/w
itll be what I do first/by the end of the year. Could start saving but we want to go to cancun in December so it's either lift the truck or save for the trip lol

That's exactly why I'm not lifting mine or going with bigger tires. I'm old and enjoy my Taco and the MPGs it gets now. ?
Only thing I've done is add trd or bilsteins. Kept the same mpg. But once I go up 4 inches that'll for sure change lol

I'll probably go with a little bigger tire next time, but will stay away from the lift.
