new guy in NH

So I have been lurking for a couple of weeks while I waited for my new truck to do some research and get ideas and finally decided to join the group now that I have it. I got a 2010 double cab long bed in timberland mica but before I get there this is what I just sold... I literally shed a tear on this one... I loved that truck!





This was more of a toy for me and wasn't very good for driving in Boston for work - nevemind the gas mileage but it wouldn't fit in parking garages...

Now I have to start from scratch on the Tacoma... Here she is the day I got her home:





So far I have taken off the unibrow, debadged, added weathertech window deflectors and floor liners, and taken all mudflaps off. I might trim the rears and put them back on tho... I am having second thoughts with the LB, but I would rather have a 6' bed for use than the 5... it definitely looks like a limo so a lift will be ordered tomorrow. I will do bilstein 5100s at 1.75 and 3 leaf AAL. I will drive this 150-200 miles a day for work so I don't need/want to go that high yet, but I HAVE to do something to make it look better. I will then do SCS F5s in either matte black or bronze - would love to see what those look like on TM before I do it tho... I am getting a used set of headlights to do the BHLM and keep my stock smoked... and will probably do a billet style grill again like the Tundra... those are the plans as of now!

A bit about me - I have been a gearhead my whole life and have always worked on my stuff - I do everything except welding and bodywork.

hello TW!

here is another project that I am working on:



A 73 Chevy K5 blazer - one of three years for the full vert! It may not look like much now but that will change... with enough money and time like always... I have redone the frame, added a steering box brace, 6" BDS front springs, 2" rears with ORD 4" shackle flip, dana 60 up front and corp 14 bolt in the rear with disk brake conversion...(SAS for taco?) cross over steering, etc etc... was going to go BB but I think a LS 6.0 is back as the first choice...



whattya think?

Welcome again. I'm totally doing the SCS F5s in bronze. I have a Nautical Blue Tacoma. I think they would look sweet on your TM truck too. The OP on the SCS F5 thread might be able to hook you up with a photoshop pic of your truck with the wheels on it. I know he was doing that when the wheels first came out.

Definetely explains the NEED for 4 doors ...

Keep your eyes OPEN for "news" in the New England section....

A few "Meet & greets" coming up early spring; one in March will be in Rochester...

yeah - first mod was sticking 3 car seats in the back of the truck... the one in Rochester is like 5 minutes from me so that is a no brainer... I will look out for them... I cover Boston and the north shore for work so I am always down there too...
