    Greetings...

    This is David from Atlanta, Georgia, it gives me great pleasure to finally make my inaugural post on TW. -First time poster, long-time lurker and researcher...

    I took delivery of a 'new-to-me' 2011 V6 SR5, DC-SB, 6-SPD, 4X4 today!

    I got the super rare color "silver streak mica", but hey for the deal I got, I can live with that. I was able to track down an '11 with 675 miles on it. Translation: used pricing, new truck...:D

    It has been a bit too long since I have had a truck (one year plus), so it's good to be back.
    The planned mod list is concise, but I think what it lacks in quantity, it makes up for in quality...

    Near Future:
    • Dual Tuffy 161 lock boxes out back
    • UWS toolbox (FREEBIE)
    • Xantrex ProSW 1000W Inverter setup (I didn't get the bed outlet with my SR5) :sadviolin:
    • Optima "yellow top" deep cycle battery
    • Husky floor liners (front and rear) -In my experience, for trucks Husky makes a better product than Weathertech, not that I'm bad-mouthing their product(s).
    • Set of full seat covers for front and rear (looking for suggestions here, not overly crazy with my experiences with Wet Okole, thoughts)?
    • Bilstein 5100 series setup (all around)
    • Trying to decide between RandyEllisDesign "Sleekster" or Avid Offroad light bar for my Rallye 4000s (opinions and/or suggestions appreciated)!

    Not-so-Distant Future, but still the future:
    • Set of All-Pro skids
    • ARB Locker
    • TRD Bronze Offroad 16s
    • BFG AT KOs (for my money, there is no better tire)

    Honestly, that's about it, I don't see anything crazy in the future for this truck. I have wanted one of these things for about nine years, so it's been a long time coming.

    Sorry that there aren't any pics in this post, but honestly, how many silver tacos do you really need to see, it just looks like it's from the dealer. I have super-cool smittybilt seat covers on the fronts (the ones with all the cool pockets and pouches), and I installed the rubber, antenna I had left over from my stash, and a recovery d-ring hitch, that's it. Oh, and I've got the pelican cases, gas cans, sand ladders, hi-lift jack, blah, blah, blah... but that doesn't ride with me all the time.:eek:

    stay up.
