    Hello everyone, just wanted to introduce myself. I'm a proud owner of my first Tacoma, first time having a truck and a first time owning a brand new vehicle too. Never thought I would ever buy a brand new car, but my wonderful wife surprised me for my birthday. I'm excited and nervous at the same time. Part of me wants to jump into mods and part of me is telling me to wait and concentrate on paying it off first. I think I'm going to settle somewhere in between. Looking forward to being a part of Tacoma community!

    First thing I'd do is to give it a detail. I know its Brand new but there is still ALOT of debris in the paint from transportation. Clay Bar that thing!!!!!

    Congrats!
