    Totally new to the Tacoma. Had my 06 doublecab 2WD for 3 months now. I wish I would have made the switch sooner for sure! nothing to crazy. It's black with a small cheater lift (coil spacer and blocks). 285/75 tires to fit the lift. Black/Silver leather interior. tinted windows 20%. HID's. debadged. Can't wait to get into this forum more!

    Welcome Randy, congrats on the new truck. I got my first Tacoma after an '05 Z71 Avalanche and haven't looked back. The first thing I noticed was how much smaller everything was in the Tacoma......Console, shifter etc. but I soon appreciated the simple efficiency that the Toyota engineers have perfected. Enjoy your stay here, nice looking truck btw.:thumbsup

    Thank ya! Yeah, I've actually always been a mini-truck kind of guy. Always been into mods, but I am really digging these Tacomas. Definately well worth the money. I don't plan on doing a whole lot to it. I'm sure i'll do some small audio upgrades. I just want it to run forever. Haha
