    Passed up on the Ridgeline and hook, bait and sinker on the Tacoma! So far, love the truck, looking forward to learning about the Tacoma in TW.

    Nice job not buying the Ridgeline, they look too girly for my taste. Get some pics up so we can see what you have. Good luck with the mod bug...

    I've searched and couldn't find a solid answer: since my truck is still under warranty and I do not want the dealership to nail me on anything that is MY fault, if I replaced all my stock shocks with Bilstien adjustable shocks, do you have any experience if the dealer will void my warranty? The reason I ask is...I mean the shocks are the same brand as the stocks and is just of better quality?
    Any suggestions/answers/experiences/stories would be helpful. Thanks.

    As long as they are installed properly, I don't see any reason as to why it should void the warranty

    Oh, and Welcome!

    Thanks everyone. I will probably order the Bilst from Downsouthmotorsports (since so far, it has the best price) and check out the snow for holiday season in the Sierra Nevadas!

    1st time Tacoma owner here. I traded my 2003 4runner in on a F150 Lariat last year as I needed to switch to a pickup truck. I realized that I did not need that gas guzzling, hard to park machine and I came home to Toyota last week. I'm really enjoying the handling of the Tacoma and I hope to put many miles on this one. I have the 2012 Silver Mica, doublecab, short bed Tacoma, 2WD with the TRD package.

    Welcome to Tacoma World and good decision on getting a Tacoma instead of the Ridgeline.

    P.S. if you value your money, you might want to stay away from here cause you will get addicted to modding out your truck to make it look sweet like some of the other trucks on here. ;)
