    Hello,

    I'm new on the forum and wanted to introduce myself. I'm from Raleigh, NC and the proud new owner of a 2015 TRD Sport. I had to drive 6-hours to find a manual transmission, but its worth it.




    Thank you to all the contributors of TW for the helpful insight, my buying decisions were largely informed by this community. No doubt, you will also be to blame for the upgrades that are sure to follow...

    Thanks for the welcome! I'll be adding to the forums as soon I have a question that hasn't already been politely answered 3,000 times - or better yet, something informative to add.

    Welcome from High Point NC. Looks just like mine when I picked it up in 2012.

    Yeah, I am already feeling that and haven't really done anything yet-- just picking up a used Bakfip cover and a replacement front bumper (old was cracked in two places from previous owner) has set me back a few months...
