    What’re you thinking for lift, wheels and tires?

    That is a really hard question. Right now I am torn. I kind of like Fox socks, but I hear good things about Icon and King as well. As for wheels, I am really leaning towards the beadlocker look, so I want something along the lines of Pro-comp, Mickey Thompson, or Walker Evans. For tires, since I spend a lot of time on road in a place where it snows, I am leaning towards the Falken WildPeak AT/3

    Haven’t heard anything bad about Fox, especially from the guys in AZ and SoCal who run MT2 or LT kits from them. King and ICON are quality as well, @smslavin is up in your neck of the woods and runs Kings. Idk how much off-roading you plan on doing, but @Toytec Lifts is always worth a call.

    @zcarpenter92 My friend swears by ToyTec, so they are on the list too, but forgot to mention them. I do not plan on a lot of off roading at the moment, but as my kid grows the frequency will increase.

    Do yourself a favor and reconsider the wheel brands you look into. Pro-comp rims are garbage just like anything else that company puts out, the others are pretty overpriced and have a limited selection in our bolt pattern / correct offset.

    There are some legit companies that make some good looking off-road style rims specifically for our trucks.

    I would suggest Method, Icon, or Stealth Custom Series. Most of their selections have the beadlock look (method makes real beadlocks as well).

    Were you able to buy color matched door edge guards from Toyota, if so, how much did they cost you? I would be very interested in that as well.

    I used a broker to buy my truck, he was able to get me the Toyota ones at his wholesale price. I paid $96 for them, on the website they list at $115.
