    Hello all! Just go my first Tacoma and I love it! I volunteer with the local Search and Rescue group and wanted something that could get me through some nasty roads (washboard, snow covered, iced over, muddy, and any combination). So the basics:
    2010 Toyota Tacoma Access Cab SR5
    4 cylinder
    Manual 5 Speed
    4x4

    Mods:
    LoPro QT Tonneau Cover
    VHF Radio and Antenna
    Bed lights added to pockets
    PIAA Fog Lights

    Mods on mind:
    Add lights to undercarriage (Snake Spotters)
    Add light tow hitch
    Add driving lights

    I'll post pictures later and links to the other projects but wanted to start this thread right now.

    Thanks for looking!

    Tom Woods driveshaft. TRD short throw shift kit. TRD exhaust. AFE Stage II intake. CBI Bumpers front and rear. Warn 8000i winch/ synthetic line. OME 3" lift w/ dakar springs and 886 coils. ATO Front skid. ARE MX cap. Trail Team FJ wheels. Cooper Discoverer ST 265/75-16 C tires. Diff breather relocation mod.
    Check out CBI Offroad Fab. I've got front/rear bumpers and sliders from them. They are in Idaho Falls, ID. I've made the drive down there to get parts twice. Its nice to meet the people building the parts for the truck. Their website has good pictures of all their products.

    I would add a rear locker to your list if you don't already have one. Really helps get me through the deep stuff around Bozeman.

    Thanks, CBI has some pretty good looking stuff. I've heard good arguments for and against the rear locker, and for the mild off roading I plan on doing I think it would be doing a more harm than good. I'm going to have to find all you Bozmanites sometime in the spring and find some trails

    WOOT! Bed lights added. They are the "driving" led lights available at Wal-mart. I'll try to take pic of them some point and load them on but they work well in the small bed cubbies. I can see everything in the bed without being blinded. And they have uber small draw so that is nice.

    Pics to come soon!!

    Here are some stock pics, I'll try to get around to more photos of interior and bed lights this week, but finals week brings major crunch time!
