Tuff Country Toy

We have an '01 Toyota Tacoma we are going to build for Ultimate Adventure this year, and we have some very extensive plans for the truck over the next few months. But rather than just jumping straight into the extreme high-dollar axle swaps, we decided to start with some mods that would make the truck look better and improve its off-road prowess right off.

Seeing as how we can never leave good enough alone, we decided to install a suspension kit on the truck so we could go play. It just so happens that Tuff Country has a new 5-inch suspension kit for Toyota Tacomas, and BFGoodrich has some new 33-inch All-Terrain tires we wanted to test. So after a few calls, we tracked down a shop to get the work done, got some shiny wheels for our truck, and got started on some Tacoma testing.

If you're looking for the most extreme suspension and tires for your truck, then this isn't it. On the other hand, if you want to give your truck a wicked new look and improve the off-road ground clearance while retaining that stock ride quality, then this recipe for improvement is for you.
