My name is Nick, from the Cincinnati area. I bought my truck from Kings Toyota in February after the transmission in my 04 RX8 Grenaded for the last time. Admittedly I've been lurking for quite some time.
It's a 2005 AccessCab with the TRD Sport Package, SR5, blah blah blah in Silver Streak Metallic.
As of now it's got about 173k miles on it, I bought it with just over 150k
So far, I've wrenched on it quite a bit, Here's what's been repaired/modded since I bought it.
DDM HID's, H4 Hi/Low Kit 55 Watt, 5000k
DDM Kit in 35 Watt 3000k for the fogs as well
Redid the front brakes only to discover a few weeks later I had a stuck piston in the front passenger caliper, so again, replaced the pads and that caliper.
Replaced the water pump...
Bought myself a 40$ CAI setup off of ebay, honestly for the money spent, and my intake temps, and that amazing noise...I feel like I made out like a bandit on that.
Added my Pioneer DEH-8400BH Headunit from the RX8, replaced all speakers with infinity references that were in my room mates 350z(rip)
Plastidipped the front cross bar thing on the front bumper, I was satisfied with the look until I got hit, it was all scratched off :l
Cut out the secondary catalytic converters and welded in a straight piece of pipe, also cut out the OEM Muffler and replaced it with a Thrush Welded
....All in all, I'd guess you could say "Ballin' on a budget."
I look forward to getting to know some of the locals, if there are any haha.
Overall I love my truck, it's been the most reliable vehicle I've ever had. It doesn't flood, it doesn't go through an engine every 100k, along with a transmission, set wiring harnesses aflame. It's great!
Here's a few shitty pictures.
