    Hey guys, new here!

    Just signed last week for a brand new Tacoma!! :D I got a 4doors with the v6 and the trd + leather package :cool:... Black :cool::D I'm picking it up this thursday!

    I've started looking around the forums for mods, tips and tricks and whatnot..

    I'm going from a nissan Versa to this, let's just say that it'll be easier to haul my MX bike than with the versa! haha

    the mods for now will be a sticker in the back windows :p

    someday I'll get the whole stuff for the offroad look and use, pushbar, bedbars a lift kit, insanely agressive tires, wider side panels and a lot of lights :D


    So I hope I'll make friends here and well I'm very glad to have found this forum by googling ''tacoma trophy truck'' :D:D

    well I'm not there yet, but I'd like to park the truck a bit further from the streets 'in' the trail I'm doing on my mx :D

    I don't think I'd rock crawl with it but surely I'll try some rough terrain for fun :D:D

    I've been offroad 2 or 3 years now, coming from a sport bike.. I have a DRZ 400 S that will now stay only on light gravel roads and streets.. because I bought this winter a KDX 220R :cool: can't wait to not beat up my drz offroad lol

    you wouldn't believe how many parts I've replaced on the drz because of my (bad) habit of falling down on rocks haha

    and what the hell I'll make you all laugh! check this video out ! it's a compilation of my falls lol (for my defense, I'm a bit better with a lower and lighter bike :) my drz is really high!)

    Welcome to TW. How'd you score leather? You'll find that your wallet will be emptying quickly with the mods. It's addicting.

    so I got my Tacoma! Right now it has mud all over it up to the roof! :D

    but in the process I learned something very important

    pro tip : when you do a little offroading, it is advisable to have your tailgate closed because if you hit a good bump fast enough, it will fall off and break a small part of your left tail light in the process. Let's not forget the small scuffs here and there on the gate itself:smash::frusty:


    so that was preetty stupid I know :( oh well gotta pay to play right?

    let's just say I've learned my lesson and the damage isn't so bad afterall

    so here's some pics! I don't have pics of the truck with mud sorry, I'll snap some pics of that tomorrow!
