    After my ex decided to take my Tacoma when we split I tried the car thing for a bit, bought an 07 Camry SE. When that wasn't working it was time to get a truck. I was looking at Tacoma's until the finance director at my girlfriends dealership told me about the rebate, and low interest rates on the tundras I pulled the trigger on a 2012 DCSB. I've had her since late September, but didn't start the build until about 2 months ago.

    No front window tint. It has the 4.6, Not sure what's next.. I still need to install the HID high beams and fogs, and LEDs under the dash. Possibilities for other mods are exhaust, intake, slotted rotors, plasti dip nameplates, new grille, bumper, UCAs.. There's a big list..

    If it was me I'd get it tinted. Makes a big difference. Well it does in the heat in the south anyways. And I'd do the exhaust. Bamuffler makes a budget system bolt on. $350 and one with 6 or 8 inch mufflers bolt on for 650. Or you could get a wickedflow welded in or something. I'm like you I've got a big list but just doing the basics first. Tint and exhaust. Took the tundra emblems off the two front doors and the tiny Toyota emblem off the back. After my exhaust is done ill probably look at the speaker system. Have you seen the auburn limited slip diff? That might be something you want to do.

    Looking great so far Wooddogg! I got the same truck in 2011 and Barcelona Red. I am going to go with a Borla exhaust for the 4.6, the vid I saw with it sounded great, not overly loud but nice and aggressive.
