Greetings from Phoenix

That's Phoenix, AZ - not Phoenix, OR (although I have been there...)
I've got a 2007 Taco TRD / Offroad with the 6 speed manual tranny. I am considering a couple of upgrades, but am not going to go too crazy:

17" black steel rims from an FJ Cruiser. Sounds weird I know, but I want the simplicity, and a different look.

Power rear window. One of the few things that bugs me about the Taco - and I know this is a nit-picky compaint - is the way that the wind buffets my head when I have both windows down. It seems better when I open the sliding rear window, but it's a pain to reach back there and open it.

I am also wondering if there are any clutch upgrades I can do to make that a little smoother / lower effort. I guess I got spoiled by years of driving stick-shift Hondas - those clutches are like butta!

That's really it for now - but I am sure I will have more after I do some reading on this site!
