Autoblog.com is reporting that Toyota is now replacing frames on some rusty Tundras too. This doesn't come as a complete surprise considering the damage I personally saw when attempting to buy a used Tundra in Pennsylvania.
The Kumho Ventire SAT KL61 is an all terrain tire designed with a combination of off-road looks and on-road manners. I picked up a set, sized 265/70/16, for my 2005 Toyota Tacoma after realizing that my Firestone ATs were not going to make it through another winter. The tires are designed with a 'flame inspired' tread pattern, which sounds lame, but allows the tires to easily disperse water and stay clean when traveling through gravel, dirt and mud. As an added bonus, the tires are also rated for severe weather and include the ever-important 'snowflake' which alerts people to this rating.
There are lots of options for lifting your Toyota Tacoma. I know it is a cliche, but you often get what you pay for with lifts. While most people ask, "what are you going to be doing with your truck" I always start with, "do you like how your truck rides" because that's what matters most. If you like a soft, plush ride, then don't lift your truck. No matter how much money you spend, your truck will never ride as smooth as it does when it is stock. My next questions are more important:
- How much money are you willing to spend?
- Are you going to do the work yourself? If not, you'll need more money.
So if you really want to lift you truck, here are the right and wrong ways to do it.
