I take off my roll bar and spare tire last week.

I buy a $40.00 canopy with boat rack and put it on.

Next I put on the roof rack, tire inside, shovel and three lights.

What is your ideas on what I do next to the Toyota.

I thinking snorkel attached or a winch or a body lift. Not know which one to pick. CJ Mike tell me how much a winch would cost but not sure how much a snorkel attached or a body lift would cost. I have saved but not know which one is more expensive.

I want a real off road truck. I want put more stuff on my truck.

No, that sticker costs lots of money. Man at sticker place had to make and design the first one for me to match the website sticker. Lots more money this time but now he save on his computer, I pay less next time.

Looks great man.[36]
I'd go with the winch myself.
The Champions from costco are a good winch for the money (about $450) that would leave some extra towards your snorkel [cheers]

[36] Looking good Taxi, I would go for a winch also, the Champion one's at Costco are pretty good and have a good warranty. 8000 lbs winch will work good for you. Then check out the internet, make your own snorkel set up and a body lift is pretty cheap. Truck looks great bro. [36]

Looks great Taxi, I'd go for the winch...like the guys above said you should be able to pick one up for pretty cheap, let you save some more money for lifts and all that. You could probably make a snorkel for pretty cheap

skip the winch and get a rear locker. any place you've been that you would need a winch, a locker will get you through. detroit[36] ...p.s. nice yota.

some offset rims and some 32x11.50's would fill those fender flares quite nicely once you wear those meats out[cheers]

till then a rear locker should do the trick[stupid]

Tanks for all your ideas.

I pick a 3 inch body lift.

Dave put the lift in on July 14. I post pictures later.[5][5][5][5][5][5][5][5][5][5][5]

Get rid of the crawlin sticker and get a FIBC one ! So much better.

I say get some bigger tires and weld the front and rear diffs, thatll make a HUGE difference offroad.

[stupid] sure it's nice to be able to get through a hole you might need to winch yourself out of (not having a locker vs having one) but with a locker and no winch, you can and probably will still get stuck..

I'd say winch, good to be on the safe side and know you can get yourself (or someone else) out of a sticky situation


looks good so far taxi[cheers]
