I'm looking to buy my dad a step bar for his pickup, but I don't have a clue where to look, except maybe Autozone. Any suggestions?

Also, I'm looking at getting some modding done on my 4x4 Tacoma (suspension lift, exhaust, injectors, tuning, etc, but not all at once). Where are some good places to do that sort of thing?

I'm east/southeast Houston area.

Try google for a nerf bar for your dads truck model.

And buy the tools and work on your own truck.

"buy my dad a step bar for his pickup"    What kind of Truck? Make? Model? Year?

As for Lift and such I cant give you a name off the top of my head but it would not be FourWheelParts.

My dad's got an '02 Tundra, but I'm less looking for a specific model part as a trustworthy dealer of competitively priced quality parts, whether online or local.

As for my truck, it's an '04 Tacoma 4x4. I don't currently have the experience or time to do my own mods except for simple stuff.

I don't have any suggestions for a step bar, but if you want quality info for your Taco, there is no better place to look than TTORA .

I have known the originator of that site since he started it back about 1996, and there have been many trips when my Toyo-Heep was on the gooseneck trailer along with his rig.  Having wheeled with many of the members in TX, CA, and AZ, I can classify them as a superb bunch of folks without hesitation!  There is a significant Houston metro membership, and they get together monthly, mostly near your part of town.

Don't bother with "getting some modding done" on your rig, just host a WAT [wrench-a-thon] and folks will show up with knowledge, tools, and labor.  It is so much more satisfying to do the work yourself versus paying someone to do it.

I sold my '96 Taco back when I bought my Tundra in '02, and sometimes still miss it.  Needless to say, a supercharged 3.4 with a 5-speed, 4.10's, and 31's was a real blast to drive!

I wouldn't have a problem with doing it myself, especially with help/supervision, except my bigger hangups are time and space. Yes, I don't know how to do it, but I could learn. What I can't easily do is create the time and space to get it done.

I order some Nerf bars from summit racing a few years back.  There were the cheapest online plus had free shipping.  Very easy to put on.

Try pickup specialties on FM 2920 in Spring, they have or can get and install anything you want pretty much.  They used to be at I-45 and FM 1960 but they moved

TTORA is the way to go.
