    Even though I can fix my dings, I still hate getting them! I ahven't been doing this for too long, so every ding is a new challenge. You'll still see me park in the last spot in parking lots.

    That is one thing that annoys me about the Pro colors. BMW does it right- My model M3 I had came in two optional flagship colors- that yellow I had, and a bright cyan blue similar to voodoo blue. No other BMW model or trim level would therefore ever be allowed to come in that color!

    Next year we will indeed see Army Green Tacos everywhere... Which is why I ordered the TRD Pro decals for mine. (Aftermarket, for around $100, but they are a bitch and a half to put on) That way, at least my AG Pro will stand out a little more from the sea of green Tacos next year. Even though all those other trim lines will soon be sporting our TRD Pro grills!

    Great pictures!!

    I love that color M3 - got to pound one around the BMW Performance Center driving school track back in 2001.

    I had a 2000 328Ci that I special ordered in Orient Blue - one of the great things about BMW is you could special order colors. Orient Blue was not a standard color for the Coupes that year.

    I sold the Coupe when I retired from the Army and we moved back to PA. But, I still have my '96 Z3 that I bought new.

    And, now the Tacoma is my daily driver. And, of course, a retired Army officer needs an Army Green truck!

    @Devious6

    Thanks, and nice photo of you in the Phoenix Yellow M3!

    I still have our Estoril Blue M-Sport Wagon with a red interior (Superman colors), and my good friend lets me drive his M Roadster whenever I want, which helps a lot when I miss my M3:


    But switching topics to your army connection, you reminded me that when I was little, my father acquired one of those surplus Willys Jeeps from WW2 that they sold to the public after the war. It lived outside behind my grandfather's barn, and it never had plates on it so we could only drive it on my grandfather's 27 acres of land. It had no working brakes! My dad would push in the clutch and then if he had to, throw a block of wood out ties to a rope so it would catch under the back wheel... I learned to drive a manual when I was 8 years old on that thing... I'm going to have to dig up and old black and white photo of it now and scan it in...

    I’d love to see a picture of that Jeep. We still had the M151 versions in the Army when I first commissioned in the late 70s. I hated to see them go.

    Got my bed rack installed. Wish I had the RTT to throw on top but it’s so pricey.

    Good news for those of us who plan on adding a slight lift, and do not want to go down the spacer route.
    I plan on ordering this eibach spring upgrade + Icon AAL in the rear. That should hopefully take care of all the weight I continually find ways to add to my truck.

    and yes, my neighbor's boat on trailer in his downhill sloped driveway, aimed straight for my truck does scare the bejesus out of me.

    The day has final came and it only took me over 12 months to get this beast. Long story short the dealership ran into a ton of issues with allocations and then COVID hit. All I know is I am beyond blessed and excited with my first ever brand new vehicle.

    My first 2 mods were easy ones.
    1.Tactilian Car Flag Magnet
    2. 265/75/16 KO2. Dealership allowed me to trade in my stock tires.

    Today I am installing Diode Dynamics Ditch lights, Fog lights, and Bumper Light bar, APS Truck Armor Aluminum Truck Steps, Bed Lights, and Tailgate Lock.
    I can not wait to share my journey with you all.

    So, I am enjoying my truck and all. however there is one tiny little concern I have. Tonight I went to take the trash out so I went thru the garage and all of the sudden I realize that there is a "whirling/mechanical pump" sound in the garage. Initially I thought it was the house heater, but internally I was thinking to myself "nah, it to high of a pitch", so I start listening closer and following the sound and it lead me to my left rear fender in my truck, I get down and its the loudest by the fuel tank. At that point I'm like "FUDGE". Last time a used the truck was on Sat night, the fuel level is at 1/4 full. and I have not touched the car since Sat night. I grab the keys for the living room, I don't turn the car completely on but I do press the button to accessories. then turn it off and sure enough the "high pitch sound" stops. my question is if its normal for the truck's fuel pump to activate itself without the car necessarily be on or the keys close by (btw, I do turn off my fob every time I'm not on the car, idk why but its a habit for me)

    I would say it's probably the evaporation system. I think it is a matter of pressure and not a timer that triggers the system.

    Who has purchased the raised letters for their tailgate? I am looking at getting some and wanted reviews from trustworthy people.

    I originally went with what I believe were the Toyota letters and they looked good but the black shading was slightly off.

    I switched to these that I purchased off Amazon and I think they match the TRD pro emblems better but they are just a tiny bit smaller than the Toyota letters, however they’re aluminum vs the rubber type material on the stock ones
