My First Taco.. best truck ever IMO

Sup Fellas

been lurking around TW here for a while...searched the far corners of CL for around 2 months, could find nothing in the '01-'04 range in Florida. Happened to take a spur of the moment trip to visit a friend in in VA, and instead of a plane ticket home, rode home in this

2004 TRD Offroad 5 speed V6 4x4 with brand new BFG rugged trails, other than that completely stock.

had 106,xxx when i got it for $11,599 from a little mom and pop dealership. A little outa my budget but it was worth the extra $ i had to come up with.

Runs like a top, ill post more pics of the stuff ive done to it since i got it

AMSOIL everyding
TC
OIL and filter
Trans, front and rear diffs

Tint
Drawtite towing reciever
Towing wiring harness
ERG in channel window deflectors
Husky Liner Floor Mats (front only, back to follow soon)
Marathon Superhides Seat covers Max 4 camo (still waiting on in mail)

Just want to say a huge thank you to the guys on here that have helped me out over the last few months through PM's, and to everyone who has created a thread anything DIY related, bc ive looked at pretty much everything. This is hands down the best resource for working on the truck, much better than a haynes manual (not to say there bad) which i had to use on my old beater chevy i just sold to get this baby!

Congrats on the new truck, should last you a long time.

Not trying to be an asshole at all, but was it repainted on the passenger side? Color on the access cab and bed look slightly different than the front door and front fender. Just curious is all!

thx guys...noticed that when i was posting the pic....not sure, carfax showed it was a one owner vehicle with no accidents, guess it possibly could have been in an accident and not reported on carfax but i dont rly care because it runs great, doors close and open perfectly, etc...

any suggestions on what other mods and maintenance to do other than changing the belts in a couple days?

Nice little find there, perfect color/combo and it has 4WD. I wouldn't worry about the door being repainted
