Hey everyone. Figured I'd throw down a quick intro. Picked up an '08 Taco new (access, prerunner TRD Off-Road) on a trade with an '05 Infiniti G35 coupe (ya I know, huge change...). I had to make a few sacrafices on what I wanted to get but in the end still feel I made the right choice, I really wanted the double cab, 4x4, and 6MT. Oh well, gotta do what you have to especially to get in a huge upside-down trade. I've had an ich to get a taco for several years, debating back and forth between the newer ones or grabbing an old 'beater' to fix up. Well, the choice I made is quiet obvious... so far I'm liking it even though it's a bit of a "shock" moving from the G to this... but so far mostly in a good way. From the bit of reading I've done on here, seems to be an extremely helpful and nice group of people here, hopefully I can help to contribute in some way in the future.

Since I know most of you love pics, here's a few of the new taco:







I already have a few mods in mind for the realativly near future... nothing to over the top at least for awhile.
  • The stocker audio has to go, so horrible. Debating between doing a 'truck' pc or just picking up a kenwood touch unit as such... and all the speakers to go with it.
  • When these tires die out, would like to swap out for some nice blacked out alcoa-type 15's and probably some 31 or 32" bfg all-terrain KO's.
  • Bed extender
A few other things I'm on the fence about is full debadge, and to remove the pinstripes. At first I absolutely hated them, but now I'm a bit mixed on it...

Anyway, that's a 'quick' intro

Just the TRD cat-back. For now, works well enough for me. Maybe down the line I might throw in a full borla kit... but then again maybe I'll just leave it as it is. I still have another toy that needs more attention first, a '92 Dodge Stealth R/T TT (aka Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4). Wrecked her in oregon well, almost 2 years ago now so she needs a full rebuild, frame pull, some body work... ect. Now that I have a truck though, I can actually get parts and tools!

Portland rain in cold weather with summer tires = fail. Wasn't even speeding, but a truck (tacoma of all things lol) in front of me started fish tailing and loosing control... I was attempting to go around it but, in the prosses of trying to figure out to juke left or right, I started hydroplaning myself... and ended up 'floating' into the back of an '06 Charger turrning right (v6, not a hemi so it's cool). Sucks, but both vehicles were deemed a total loss...

Before


After:


The damage doesn't *look* so bad, but it twisted the entire frame, destroyed the radiator core support, and some other stuff. Add in the fact that 3000GT's are about as expensive as they come for parts, repair costs add up quick. Also, being a unibody, getting the frame back in shape's no easy task.
