Hey guys, just wanted to get my first post up here.
Been reading the forums since I started getting really into trucks about nine months ago. About two months ago my dad crashed my old 1997 jeep cherokee on the way to Mount Hood. I immediately started looking at new car options online. Since this will be the car I will have to drive until I need to get a new one with my own money, I wanted something that I could put 200-300k miles on and that could handle everything from hauling, off-roading, highway driving, snow and ice, and long road trips. I settled on the tacoma.
Went with my dad to the dealership and picked up a black TRD offroad double cab that I had seen online on January 1st. So far I love it, seems to do everything better than the old jeep (which was a great truck)
For any of you Oregon guys, where are some good easy off road trails I can break the truck in on?
I made a list of mods I want to do, but I don't have any experience working on cars. I still have the jeep, which I might do some minor mods on just to get my hands dirty. For the tacoma I was thinking these might be some good first options, very easy to install and functional. I have about 1700 dollars to work with.
