    Just keeping up my theory of randomness (you sick group of people expected pictures of my half-eaten best friend, didn't you - sick bastards). Hit about 230 miles on the new truck today. What an amazing machine. It is definitely a head turner too. Wow, is this site bad or what, I already have a list of mods I want to do thanks to you lot.

    -In dash nav (I am surprised you can't get this from the Factory, one day they will listen to the masses).
    -TRD CAI (whooosh)
    -I heard the TRD Cat Back exhaust, and while I see there is some debate weather it really adds any horsepower or not, I know it is less restrictive, and it sounds good. (all that matters)

    I had no where to go really, so I just drove north to Lake George to take some pictures. I just want to spend all my free time behind the wheel.

    Here is my old baby. 1994 Mazda B4000 V6 - Had a lot of good times with this truck. Really learned how to drive a stick with it. I love my new 6 speed, and I am pretty much used to the closer ratios.

    Welcome coreyjon, we all know you will enjoy your truck as much as us or even more. Start moding you soon will find how fun it is to make your ride as custom as you want. It is not a truck it's a whole NEW PROJECT!

    What body....There's no body:spy:....How did I know that the first person to ask would be from the southern alliance, and the Founder no less.:D

    I am pretty sure the first mod is going to be the installation of a Nav system. Better order up that Scosche kit from Taco Tunes.

    its the Carolina Alliance not the Southern Alliance, get it right fool. i'd love a gps but i would rather have one i could transfer from vehicle to vehicle if i need to. in dash looks better but the other ones are more practical... and cheaper.... which is nice:)

    You do raise a good point, Portable GPS receivers are cheaper, and more versatile. I guess it depends on why you are putting in a upgraded system. For me it is two fold, to have a better sound system (the stock is alright, but doesn't have certain functions that I want), and to have GPS capability. I wouldn't suggest installing a in dash nav system just for the GPS unless you wanted the cleaner look, and portability isn't a concern. Now I just need to figure out which one I want.

    I think is a fun upgrade, easy to do, and adds to the wow factor when people get in the truck. Besides, I like to travel, and explore, so it will be nice to have a GPS.

    Damn - I even liked your old Mazda, and I don't like those trucks.

    Your Tacoma looks sweet! Great choice! :thumbsup:

    Haha, That mall is pretty much dead, even though some guy, or company is investing millions. I don't do malls very often. The very same Nuc prototype in Saratoga? I was up there not to long ago to visit the Bx and some of the young guys where telling me about it. (not sure they were supposed to be talking about it).

    Yea, and thanks!

    Clean for now.

    Why thank you. That truck was a a lot of work, but worth it. Had a lot a good times in it.

    Again, figures its the guys in the Southern Alliance that are only interested in the dead body. (err...theres no body).
