    Nice truck and welcome to TW! :hattip: :wave:

    My dad was stationed at NAS Norfolk from 1998 to 2000; He retired as a captain in 2007 after 25 years in the Navy. Thanks your service!

    By the way, I still have fond memories of going to the Navy Exchange at Oceana when I was a kid! The Commissary too! Gotta love tax-free stuff! I even got swimming lessons at the pool on that base!

    The Oceana NEX is easily my favorite; My dad was stationed at Moffett Field (1983-1990, 1996-1998), NAS Willow Grove (1990-1996, 2005-2007), NAS Norfolk (1998-2000), NAS Whidbey Whidbey Island (2000-2002), The Pentagon (2003-2005). I can still remember all those tax-free Hot Wheels cars!

    By the way, is your truck automatic or manual?

    At lease your came with intermittent wipers! What being just a base SR5 mean anyway? Just a brake-actuated limited-slip instead of a locking rear diff? I'm pretty sure most 6-lug SR5s came with fog lights too (which is one feature my truck sorely lacks!).

    I got hit by a drunk driver in October 2015, and his court-ordered restitution money paid for my backup camera (and two dashcams). Karma's a bitch! So, I have a Clarion CC250 backup camera mounted above the license plate frame, tied into a double-DIN touch-screen head unit; All 2009-2015 Tacomas that did not come with backup camera are prewired for them. It was pretty much plug and play in my truck, with no extra wiring; All 2009-2015 Tacomas with SR5 trim and above came standard with backup cameras, so that's why the base models like mine came prewired. 2005-2008 models did not come with backup cameras, so I'm guessing installing the backup camera in your truck was a little more complex?
