New guy from VA

Hey all... I'm new here but not new to Toyota. It all started with a 1987 Turbo pickup 22RTEC I wish I still had that truck.

About 6 months ago I converted my wife from a 2011 Subaru Forester to a 2012 Spruce Mica Tacoma DC SR5 TRD Offroad 4x4 with Tow Package. It's loaded minus NAV (I hate factory NAV systems). This truck is stock minus the Truxedo bedcover, tinted windows, and OEM bedmat. This will change sometime in the next year. Looking to do a 3/1 or something, and some wheels and tires, and maybe a good subwoofer.

I also have a 2011 Spruce Mica Tundra Crewmax SR5 TRD Offroad w/sunroof and Tow Package. It's loaded minus leather (wife hates leather). It's mods are growing. I did a 3/1, 20" Black XD Hoss wheels, 305/55/20 Nitto Terra Grapplers, OEM Tow Mirrors, Rhino Liner "Hardline", Tri Fold Bedcover, OEM Texas Edition Billet Grill, Clarion NX501 DVD/NAV, Lock Pick backup camera, Hifonics Brutus 1200.1D amp, 2 - 10" RE Audio SX 10's, custom built "vented" box tuned at 38 to 39Hz, 6K HID's in the lows, and fogs, OEM TRD Skidplate, tinted windows, PlasmaGlo Fire and Ice tailgate light bar, and coming soon a custom dual exhaust. It also had the OEM stainless steps but I took them off because I thought they clashed with the look of the truck.

I am joining to learn more about the Tacoma, and what lifts and wheel/tire sizes will work best, etc...

Pics...





And a pic of what I tow with the Tundra A 2013 Solaire 29 RLDS by Palamino that we got a couple months ago.

Ouch that sucks.... That area is terrible for wrecks.... Especially around that stupid exit 14 ramp. Whoever designed that one wasn't thinking. Hopefully didn't wreck or Tacoma?
