    Just got my first Tacoma in January and Love it so far. Just had the TRD exhaust put on today and received bedside decals from sockmonkey. I have debadged the tailgate and blacking out the side emblems & the hood emblem. Also, have had the taillights tinted along with 3rd brake light, and side markers.

    Next investment will probably be a intake, not sure which one yet as they do not have one available for the 13' models yet. long term I want to try and put a lift on, although not sure whether I will go with a 3 in or a 6 in lift. I've thought about a supercharger as well long term but we'll see. I also plan to black out the entire interior. When I'm done, I want the truck to be just black/pyrite mica.

    I'll post more pics later when I get the chance since I also just got an Extang cover and bed extender.

    Sorry man didn't mean to take the idea off if you. I just thoroughly it would look good with the pyrite mica and the black decals. Thinking about getting a front punisher emblem and a hitch cover as well to keep the theme going.

    Welcome OP.
    I too am in the early stages of a build. The addiction often starts with the smallest of mods. On the other hand, not everyone has the need or desire for heavy mods.
    Enjoy your Tacoma (best color by the way) and making it your own.

    Have you seen any performance gains from the K&N cold air intake (horsepower, MPG)?

    sorry it took so long to get back. no noticeable gains but I'm sure there are some. I just haven't took the effort to look into it.

    I just installed a Perforated mesh grill from http://www.customcargrills.com. This took an afternoon to install and took a lot of trial and error to make the insert fit.

    I also installed the bushwacker fender flares this weekend. I decided to keep them black and thought it looked pretty good with the pyrite mica. This install took me about a full day to do.

    It is pre bent and flat black. I'm pretty sure you can get it gloss if wanted.

    Nice lookin truck man! Same as mine, but you are farther along than me.
    So, I feel like I'm asking a stupid question, but I haven't been able to find the answer anywhere else, but how do you remove the white emblems off the bed? Do you just peel them off? Any special tricks?
    Thanks.

    Personally I got a hair dryer and heated up the surrounding area. After a minute or two try peeling it off slowly, making sure you don't use any sharp objects to force it off. This will scratch the paint. Once they are off there will be some adhesive left over. Try getting as much off with your hand as possible. Once done use a bug and tar remover to get rest for a smooth finish or goo be gone.

    something just did not sit well with me about having a 2WD truck, so I traded in for this.
