    Custom Perforated Stainless Satoshi Grill, 3" Toytech Ultimate Lift with AAL in the rear, Total Chaos UCAs up front, Bilstiens all around, Diff drop/sway bar drop, Locker Anytime Mod, Map Light on with doors, AUX back up camera on anytime switch.
    Just wanted to introduce myself, I've been driving a 98 S-10 4x4 with a 3" BL and 5" Suspension lift running 33" tires, but after having to replace countless driveshafts, half shafts, ball joints, and idler arms, I finally saved up the money for my brand new '09 Tacoma 4X4 DC with TRD off road package. My hopes are to spend more time driving my truck and less time replacing broken parts. After seeing these trucks outperform me on the trail over and over again I swallowed my chevy pride (Gulp) and have converted. I'm originally from Flagstaff, Arizona and recently moved up to Rochester, Minnesota still trying to find some trails for both my truck and bike (Honda CRF250). Look forward to being a part of the forum!

    I also traded an S-10 (1991) in for my Tacoma. You won't regret the change.

    Welcome to the Toyota and TW family. After youve owned your Tacoma for a while, you will wonder why you owned all that Generic Motors crap for all those years.
    I went from driving Toyotas (had an '85 and '91 4Runner) and then switched to Ford because the price was right (have owned a '99 Ranger and '99 F-150) and Im just biding my time until its time for a new truck so that I can switch back to Toyota.
    Trust me, you will learn in time just why Toyota owners speak so highly of their vehicles.
