I call it Vera - Functional Newbie friendly mods - No drilling required

1st of August 2010 I purchased my Tacoma. No experience with Toyota, trucks, mods, or manuals. This will be my first time doing any type of work on a vehicle, and I intend to document the process in that hopes that anyone who comes after me can get some ideas and, of course, learn from my mistakes.

My mods will follow this set of rules wherever possible:
- Be newbie friendly (I'm a newbie so this should be a given)
- Have some functional purpose, or at least look really really good
- Not reduce performance (specifically mpg or hp)
- At all costs avoid voiding my 7 year warranty
- Do everything possible to avoid cutting, drilling, or welding into my truck
- Not break the bank

I'll be creating a thread with a writeup for each mod that I do and linking to them below. I'm hoping this build will serve as a sort of compilation and easy reference for some of the more common modifications done.

^Pfft. I said I wasn't going to MOD this truck, nor spend a lot on it. Boy was I wrong.

Also.....Good Luck with the Build!
