New guy in SoCal!!

Hello everyone, I'm Jeff and I just picked up an 03 DC taco with 80k miles, trd 4x4!!!!



First thing is first I am getting rid of the snugtop and bed rug.

I am not new to toyotas I have a 2005 4runner. Needless to say I am a toy nut!




Thanks to all the great info on here, I searched a lot of great info on what to look for before buying this great looking 03 Tacoma.

Thanks chopper!! Love the addiction. Already have a few ideas floating in my head on what direction I want to go!

Going to sell the trailer and the snugtop and make the Tacoma more of an overland explorer.

Thanks bigOly!!

80,791 miles on the clock!!

I wanted a white or the desert color but I could not find one and when I saw this one I could not pass it up for the amount of miles it had!!! I totally scored.

The color is growing on me!

Can't wait to get this thing outfitted!

Yeah I have the bug.

I have a 05 runner that I built up which was supposed to Last me a while but my dad fell on hard times so he is borrowing that for now. I just could not stay away from not having something fun to drive so I picked up the taco to try something a little different than what I have had in the past. So far I love the taco, not as good as my old 80 series or the 4runner but still a great truck right out of the box.





Thanks for all the complements.

And just for shits and giggles and because everyone like Toyota porn here is the old 80

How do you like that CVT? I'm in the market and have considered one of those puppies. Good looking build. Jealous of how fast it came together!

Flash; the CVT Is great, I analyzed each of the RTT makers and my conclusion was that CVT had good quality at a good quality price point. I have used it and it has not failed yet. For the $$ it's the best buy out there I think.

Thanks for the complements, it has come together fast but hey, you never know when the zombies will attack!! Hahaha

Go for a CVT good people to deal with.

Good to hear. Based on price point it's hard to find a well build/easy to set up RTT that can withstand weekly use. I'll have to check out it. Looking forward to see what else you can do with this truck. Lovin' it so far!

I'll have to give you a shout out next time i'm in Del Mar visiting family.

The CVT RTT really has held up very well. And I use my stuff. I don't hold many punches with my trucks.

That would be awesome, stop by there is alway cold beer for people that like toyota's .
