    Bought mine 10 October. I love it though it's nothing special compared to most here.

    It's a Regular Cab with factory A/C with upgraded rims, Mats, Chrome exhaust extention, Simoniz paint/interior protective treatment.

    Ordered the OEM Fog Light Kit from Toyotapart.com and it will be delivered Monday. I've already worked it out so that I can turn the Fogs on with the ignition either on ACC or running with the engine. That way they will be off when I turn the key off in case I forget and don't have to have any other lights on to run them - unlike the factory setup. I will post my build when I get the time in case someone wants to copy or modify it for their use.

    Went Truck shopping to replace my '93 Ranger that I use for hauling everything from topsoil to lumber (workworking/carpentry is a hobbie of mine). Saw the Tacoma's and fell in love with it. Going to be hard to put the first load of dirt or to see a scratch in the paint!

    Good choice! Welcome to TW. I too replaced a Ford Ranger with the Taco.

    Contemplating all options for upgrades.
    2008, Glad you could join us. I know you have a nice taco.
    What you are looking at when you browse the photos on this site is a whole lot of time and money. Most of us need one or the other to upgrade our trucks. :)

    Thanks for the warm welcome.

    And like you said Chief, mods take time which I have little of. My Fog Light kit arrived this morning and I'm away from home. I'm a pilot and am only home for short bursts at time. Can't wait to get started on this easy mod.

    I will take pictures to post when I get home.
