    Well I have always had and loved cars and about 3 years ago I started at a local 4 wheel drive shop. I bought a house a lil over a year ago and I'm noticing the need for a truck but I didnt want a full size... Seeing all the trucks coming in and out of our shop and learning the suspension systems I like the tacoma's alot needless to say I am and always will be a Scion tC owner and lover. So I sold my 2 cars the celebrity and civic and bought an Super White 07 Tacoma Double Cab TRD Sport. I fell upon this site y accident when I found and discovered the TRD FJ SE cruiser wheels and wanted them. Needless to say I got ahold of my dealer and ordered a test fit wheel. Found that I wanted to run 33"s a 285/75/16 on them. Now I found the readylift 2.75-3 inch in the front lift kit and will be doing a 2 inch rear block. I looked and looked and looked to find my truck with a 2.75-3 inch lift with the FJ wheels on it with that tire size to make sure that the tires were going to stay under the fender wells and I found the pics and am now sure what tires im getting and ordered the other 3 wheels today. So as I'm looking for this info I came across the temp/compass overhead console fix, and it just so happened that earlier this week that it stopped working. I tore it out, opened it up, and sure enough the 510 was off the board came in soldered it.. 3 times... and it fixed it! Now I LOVE Tacomaworld.com for my taco as much as I love Scionlife.com for my tC. Thanks for the forum I can't wait to keep adding to it

    P.S. Im not a newb to forums I do use and LOVE the SEARCH button:)
