Advice for a new guy?!

Bought a 2007 Tacoma prerunner a little over a year ago. Done some things to it already; front and back 5100s, rear add-a leaf, and some other cosmetic stuff on the interior/exterior. Any suggestions as to what a next step would be? Ive been looking into cold air intakes, exhausts, and maybe a new skid plate.
Never really worked on trucks ever so I'm trying to teach myself everything there is to know. Was a Ranger man outta high school, first test drive of a Tacoma when i was truck shopping and i fell in love, will never own anything different!

Take it out, whenever you say "this sucks"-start there.

Sounds like a plan. I went out to Anza Borrego a few weeks ago to explore the hills and found out that I would like some light bars so I can stay out in the dark. Finding people/shops that can sell parts or help give advice on how to install is the issue

Exhaust was one of the first things I wanted to do when I got mine, I just like to be able to hear my truck haha

My truck is loud, but I like it. Its better than hearing the squeaks. I know Kevinthefawker was looking at mounting a led row in his factory grill/bumper. Depends on you final plans, but might get you started a little cheaper.

Just PM the guy who made the original post, tell him what you want to order. Read the first post for details, i think all the orders are processed when the group buy ends. If you have more questions ask in that thread
