Kelson's Reg. Cab

This is my 2008 Toyota Tacoma Regular Cab Base Model (5Lug) 2.7L I4 2TR-FE w/ Aisin R155 5-Speed Manual Transmission. It is the cheapest truck you can buy, besides the fleet model.

Your rims look great!



Did you remove the Mazda emblem?



My friend has Honda Civic rims on his Taco and the Honda emblem is still there. It looks odd.

thanks, the TW5 is a really good sub...out pounds a lot of others and it has really good sq...it's pretty tight for a 13.5"

i bought it at a local JL audio dealer.

and for the rims, i removed the mazda emblem and replaced them with toyota center caps from a corolla...ill post pics up later...

& there is tint...35% on the sides and 20% on the rear window...just stayin leagal lol its like around $200 a window for tint violations here...plus i like seeing out of my back window...lol being so close to it it's amazing how much you can see compared to an access cab or my dad's doublecab.
