    Hello. I'm Ben from PHX, AZ.

    2007 Tacoma TRD OffRoad 6spd
    Tow Package
    Bilstein 5100
    Fabtech Add-A-Leaf
    265-75-16 BFG AT/AR Mojave 16"
    Bestop Supertop
    Some other misc mods.

    I've been into sportscars for years. Mostly VAG stuff, ended with an Audi A4 1.8TQMS. Needed a good truck to keep the DH Mountainbiking going. Always loved the Tacomas. It took me over 3 months to track down a black, 6spd, TRD Access Cab. I ended up having this one shipped from Iowa to PHX at the beginning of this year.

    Yeah.

    I assume if you ride DH as well that we might know each other....

    I'm on the mend right now, I broke my hand at Sunrise opening weekend this summer...

    LOTS of time to work on the truck!

    Damn that's no good. Yeah I used to ride a lot when I lived in Sedona but been having a hard time to motivate myself since I moved down to PHX. I'm thinking about buying a new bike but haven't decided yet.

    Thanks. It's a Bestop Supertop. I just installed it.

    It makes a bit of noise on the highway with all the windows in... so far, so good though.

    $472 shipped from StreetSideAuto.com if you're interested.

    The truck came from a dealership with the "Toyota Certified" 100K drivetrain warranty.

    Yes, the raised part of the hood is flat black.
