Hello, Tacoma 3G community! The name is Ricky and I own a 2017 Tacoma Off-Road. I live in Denver, Colorado. Bought my truck in February 2018 and haven't done much to the thing. Don't know much about lift kits and all the awesome things you guys do with your rigs, nor am I knowledgeable about installing kits and such. So, can't wait to learn and get tips and tricks from all of you guys. Also, I am a welder, so maybe I will be able to weld some parts for myself with some blueprints? If they're available online haha. Thanks!

Hey man, welcome to the forum! Thanks for the donation too. Your truck looks like a crispy start to an expensive hobby. Is the Dodge yours too?

And since you’re a welder you do have some advantages. A likely one is being able to do your own cab mount chop which is something you might want to do if you run 34”+ size tires.

It has an intimidating name but you’re just cutting a small section of metal and rewelding a new piece in its place. It gives you some extra clearance when you run bigger tires, otherwise they like to rub said area.

You’ll learn more about it as you research/plan things, lol.
