    Hey guys, I've been reading posts on the site for quite some time so I figure I should make my first post sometime soon. I've been driving trucks since I've been old enough to drive so I'm not new to it, in fact, I prefer trucks to any other type of vehicle. I started with my dad's '99 F150, then moved to my mom's '04 F150 before having a momentary relapse in judegement and getting my first car..a Mazda 3. I'm not entirely sure what I was thinking because after 2 1/2 years I finally gave up on it and got my own truck.

    I came home with a black '09 PreRunner Access Cab V6. Less than a year later the dealership told me they would do anything for access cab PreRunners and made their offer. I accepted and traded her for my final truck..a Speedway Blue 2010 TRD Sport 4x4 Access Cab V6. I love her and wouldn't trade her for anything (and yes, I really mean that)!

    I have a list of mods I'd love to do, but they'll take some time. Among them are: 20" chrome rims, 3-6" lift, blacked out tail lights, window tint, back window graphic, blue accented interior (looking for the exact color match and I've been very picky about it), new exhaust system, rain guards, bug guard, pin stripes, sound system, and chrome accents. I'm sure there's more but I can't think of anything right now.

    I'll have pictures posted as I start to transform her if anyone is interested. :)

    Thank you! Paintdiddy, I'm reluctant to say I'm in the "Jersey Shore" area right now..but no worries, I'm a true North Jersey girl who has just been temporarily reloacted down the shore for awhile. Where are you in Jersey?

    I'm not exactly sure what "GTL" means, so I would have to say no? lol

    Alright, I just looked it up, clearly I have never watched Jersey Shore lol. Nah, "GTL" couldn't be further off from me. I haven't given that show a chance because from the crazy things I've heard, it's more than a bit far-fetched from the real Jersey way of life.

    Some good news..I ordered blacked out tail light covers that should be here within the next week or two, so I will have pics as soon as I get them on.

    Just messin around with ya. I figured all of that was pretty imbellished, and its mostly normal out there.

    You should start a build thread once you start doing mods for your truck. Remember to take pics of everything you do!
