Simon2150's Desert Sand Mica 06 Tacoma V6 SR5 PreRunner

I still consider myself as a n00b on TW. I got my Taco in December 08 after owning an e46 328i. I loved that car to death, but maintenance was getting to be too expensive. I got a Tacoma and as of April 2009, it has 31,500ish miles on it. Lovin' it and don't miss the bimmer at all (well, sometimes...)

Here's my Tacoma:
1 of my 1st mods was to put a SR5 decal that was made with di-cut stickers



I loved this sticker; however, it didn't last long as when i was washing it, one of the "F"s in Off Road got snagged on my microfiber and it partially came off, so I got a new one made that was printed on a clear vinyl sheet.

New decal:




Rear Suspension TSB, THANK YOU TW for informing me of this!


LaminX Yellow Film Installed:




Exhaust tip with Flowmaster 50 Series Delta Flow (muffler not pictured)


Undercover Tonneau:


To come in June for Father's Day:
  • Bilstein 5100s (height TBD)
  • 17" rims (TBD)
  • Nitto Tera Grapplers

Id say Welcome, but I think you've been around the block already with 171 posts. So instead I'll comment about your sharp looking, kick ass shinny truck of yours... It's alright! LOL. Welcome anyways.

I always did like that color. I thought it was a shame when they dropped it for 09. Nice truck and welcome to TW.

That's a good lookin' truck!

I'm thinking of changing my wheels also, possibly to something black. Do you have anything in mind?
