I've been lurking here for a while, reading posts, getting ideas of future mods' and such. I'm a soon to be owner of an 08' X-Runner in black sand pearl. I prefer this site over another Tacoma x-runner site that will remain nameless. Too many kids over there for my patience to handle. Besides, how exciting is a 30-50mph street race? 14.5 second 1/4 mile times(after doing various mods') aren't quick in my book and personally speaking, the X-Runner is not either. I have a bike to ride when I want to go quickly and the 10.30's-10.50's @ 135 mph is pretty quick and that's the range I run at my local drag strip on my CBR1100XX.
I currently own a 00' S-10 short bed/reg cab 2wd with a decent amount of mods. So far I've done the following on it. 1.25" front sway bar,7/8" rear bar, Bilstien shocks, ZQ8 5 star rims, 255/50/16 tires, cross drilled rotors, braided steel brake lines, HID headlights, ECU reprogram, cat back exhaust, K&N, tonneau cover, tint, and a few other things that I can't remember right now.
I plan on doing many of the same mods' to the X-runner such as the HID headlights, cat back exhaust( and in time headers ), short throw shifter, tonneau cover of some type, aftermarket rims, intake system, possibly a MAF tuning. I'm also going to be using the site to do the armrest mod( Great Idea!!), fog light mod', and possibly the black headlight mod as well.
I'm finding that my biggest problem with the X-runner is just finding one to test drive. The nearest dealer that has one is 50 miles away. The other two that are local to me want either $1K or $500 deposit just to get a truck in for me to try out. They never get any in for regular stock. I located one in Red at one dealer that I'm goingto try to test drive maybe this weekend if I can make the time.
Anyway,,,, that's about it for now. I just wanted to say a quick "hi" to all.
