New from Missouri

Hello everybody, it's nice to finally be a member after a couple years being an "outsider" after buying my first tacoma. I love hearing about what everybody is doing to their trucks out there, it is has been very helpful in giving me ideas as to what i want to do to mine. I have lot of mods i would like to add to my truck yet the only thing I have done is get new wheels and tires. It's going to be a long and expensive process, but a fun one.

I have some mechanical experience having been in the Army as a equipment operator and occasional mechanic, but don't know "much" about modifying vehicles. So i'm gonna go ahead and thank everybody in advance for any advice or suggestions I might receive in the future because I definitely have lots of questions.

Welcome!!! I'm 35 miles north of Joplin. Look up Jones Mudfest on net (forget actual URL), Lockwood Mo. A neat close by area that has some trails and mud action. I went to an event this past spring and it was fun. Congrats! Pics!?!?!?

Nice looking rig man. Did your Taco come with black headlights? Looks like a truck with some TW influence. Love the wheels. Enjoy the snow.

Oh crap! Mine fogged a little Tuesday after plowing into 3 ft. deep drift. After spending about 8 hrs. on those mothers this passed Sunday, I'm gonna be hacked if they chronically fog. I did use the 3M window weld so should be GTG.

No kidding. Its like peer pressure on some kind of telepathic level. I resisted for 10 months thinking: "why in the hell would I wanna burn all day on a mod that doesnt look that great and risk jacking up a 600$ in parts?"
Then finally it breaks you down and your like, man I gotta do that.
Rational thought processes are basically beaten out of you at that point. But man I do love it and the WIFE even commented on the improvement.
