Barnes' First Truck Progress/Question/BS thread

I thought I'd start one of these things. Not really sure where its gonna go. This isn't going to be much of a build (yet) but more of a thread for me to track any stupid things I do with the truck.

I got the truck in November (2014) with a hair less than 70k miles on it. I've always wanted a Tacoma and time finally came that I got my own. I love it and I don't think I could ask for anything more. It's my first real 4x4 so hopefully I can stay out of trouble with it.....

Here's how it looks today


2006 Access Cab SR5
V6 4x4
Manual transmission


Interior:
Weathertechs
Sand
Sweat

Exterior:
Mudflaps removed
Toyota, SR5, V6 emblems removed

Wheels/Tires:
16x8 TRD Team Trail...knockoffs (F***!!!)
Cooper Discover H/T 245/75/16

Future:
Cooper S/T Maxx
Billies
New headset
more dirt

Any ideas anyone has for cheap mods or any suggestions let me know (I'm on a budget, the grocery store doesn't pay well...). Thanks for checkin it out.

Other vehicles I've driven in my short two years...

2004 Honda Pilot
Got it as a hand-me-down from my mom when I turned sixteen. I was a super car. Beat this thing to hell and ran it into a pole...however it never broke down, despite the multiple times I almost drowned it.


2004 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4x4
My sisters car. Drove this for a couple months while she was in Argentina before I got the taco. She wasn't too happy when she saw her baby caked from head to toe...

First time playing around with my buddy's hoe. While I got stuck on my slick 245's, he has fun giving me a bath with his 285 toyo m/t's. Washing it isn' t as fun as it is getting it dirty....

Took it on the beach at Fort Fisher with the gf for the second time yesterday. Performs great in the sand. This guy got stuck trying to pull out a 2wd Chevy Traverse that tried to get its fat butt on the beach...the outcome was not pretty. I wasn't much help due to my lack of experience with recovery while working a clutch and also the guy being buried to his frame. Oh well, it'll just take some practice. It was cool to watch though lol

Nice!

We're pretty much in the same boat, I just picked up a a/c same color as yours, my mods will be slow as well, good luck w/ everything!
