Take it out for a play first and appreciate how good they are standard, then you can start thinking about what areas you want to improve and what mods you want. You'll certainly want chunky tyres but huge tyres ruin your gearing so be careful! Modding is a personal thing so take your time and take a look at the effect each change has on the car, what works for someone else might not work for you Wink

Think DaiRees is spot on. Take it for a play first and tweak it after. good age to start tho, keep it up. I've 33's on my sj, but the 1.6 vito engine does struggle a little now and then. the truck was built to go a lot of places so just start with some good tyres and go from there, everything comes down to how much coin you have to spend on it?
