A little background about my modding history. My previous vehicle was a 2001 VW GTI 1.8T. I did almost everything to it one could. Intake, exhaust, blowoff valve, larger intercooler, short shifter, ECU, Eibach sport springs, removed side moldings, removed rear badge, oz superturismo wheels, Brembo big brake kit, Alpine head unit, amp, Alpine type R subs. I hit a little bit of everything; performanace, appearance, sound.
I plan on doing the same with the Tacoma as money permits (hence the painfully slow part).

The first mod will be tint. "Living" in the valley of the sun, this is a must.
Then a set of floor mats. Probably for my birthday, since there isn't much else under $500 that I'm looking at.
Don't really have a set order for the rest of the things I'm looking to do.
The head unit already plays mp3s and has an aux input, so that's pretty much all I need. I plan on adding a subwoofer.
Power sliding rear window seems like a nice addition. I always forget to open it up when I leave, and I can't reach it from the front seat while driving. I drive around a lot with just the windows down.
Toggle switches for additional exterior lighting.
front and rear bumpers
new wheels and tires
Since I've never owned a Toyota before, I'm planning on doing a lot of trolling through current threads and asking lots of questions.
The main goal of this build, just make it "mine". I enjoy camping so I wouldn't mind a little more protection with aftermarket bumpers. I've never been rock crawling, so I don't think I need sliders. I want to get aftermarket wheels, but don't really need big knobby tires.
It seems like everyone here is very friendly and helpful. Can't wait to get this process started.
