    Hey everyone, I've been reading posts on this site for months... I bought a 2012 trd offroad double cab 3 weeks ago. I have dreamed of the day i would be the proud owner of a toyota tacoma since i was 16 years old. this is the first brand new vehicle i have ever bought. Absolutely love her.

    The dealer washed it and when I got it home I put a quick coat of wax on. It's been too cold here to hand wash...so it hasn't been washed. I need to find a way to wash and then I'm planning a nice coat of the Maguires Next Generation wax sealant to get me through the winter. I'll just be spray washing until then. Someone needs to open up a heated indoor car wash around here....something where you can rent the space for a wash for an hour or so.

    By the way....I picked it up last week....so I've had it for 8 days....whoo hoo

    Congrats on the truck. I spy a sharp fin on the roof. That was your first mod or was it the side steps? Either way, Welcome!

    Actually the shark fin on top is for the satellite radio that came with it, and the predator bars were from the factory also. But I certainly have been looking for mods, but nothing is made for the 12's yet:mad:
