I recently purchased a 98 5spd 2.7L ext. Cab Taco. It is entirely stock, except for the 31's. Just wanted to here about some of the things(obstacles) that have been accomplished with a similar truck. Also what would be a good start when it comes to the build up on it? Thanks. :confused:

What do you want to do with it? That will determine how you build it.

well, i want it to be a good trail rig, nothing to crazy, some minor rock climbing, snow runs. I want enough clearance to avoid body damage but i need to keep a smooth ride, because it is my dd. i was thinking a 3'' lift with 32's or 33's, but i have heard that you need to regear. Is this true? Thanks for helping me out here, any advice is much appreciated.

first,start with rock sliders.if you want to keep damage to a minimum.
the rest is gonna start being expensive.
like some coilovers,and decent rear shocks.regear aint cheap either but it comes with the territory.might as well throw in a locker or two while your at it.
good luck!

Sliders, other than that just roam around here for a while and you'll get an idea. Carful though, its easy to get addicted and empty you bank account real quick no matter how little you want to do to your truck.

Happy wheeling, Jesse

Definitely rock sliders! Our rigs have a pretty long wheelbase, which means you will be rubbing a boulder here and there out on the trail. Since you're in Sacramento, go see AJ at Bentup.com and have him slap some sliders on there! Just keep an eye on what he is doing or you might end up with a coiled solid axle rig complete with flatbed and exocage. :D

This is a little of the topic of the buildup, but i was wondering if any of you guys own that green ext cab taco with a camper shell, large lift, tires, sliders, ext. Was at the gold river starbucks about a week ago. That is one very very nice truck.
