    Damn...I can't find any, but will post soon. I got the truck with high miles, but since its a Toyota, I figure it wouldn't be an issue. As an 04 I now have 80k miles and still runs smooth. I took off the brush guard, so if anyone is interested, I will post (with pics/i promise) later.

    The pics inside the truck are mine, but the external pic is what I want my truck to look like. Haven't posted my current truck pics.

    Description
    Silver
    Chrome side steps
    Bug guard
    Off Road Sticker - TRD (buts its not a 4x4) Its an illusion
    Luggage rack (WHY)

    I had dents when I bought it and tried fixing it, but now I have paint body issues I need to take care of. Probably will spend about 2k to redo the entire paint job.

    ok......well the truck in the pic looks cool too:D!!!

    $2000 in a paint job would be one helluva excellent paint job with some really good paint. what color you going with?? same color??

    and your truck is probably a trd sure enough, but its probably a prerunner(rear diff lock.....does it have this??), as they are trd too.

    Now that I think about the the brush guard I took of is a Westin. Damn! I need to post picks.

    The sticker I got was from Ebay - http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Toyo...018QQitemZ280251990651QQrdZ1QQsspagenameZWDVW

    I wanna place a hood scoop (similiar to the 05 and up TSS models). But I also want my truck to look like a truck. I'm torn in the middle. But I can get a scoop also on ebay or switch hoods with a 4Runner.

    I ordered seat covers, cause the last owner had kids and tore up the seat pretty good. Found some on ebay as well, not custom, but it may work. If it turns out good and will let you know.

    If I get a paint job, the color will be the same. But I will include side mirrors and the entire front bumper. Yes my Taco is a PreRunner.

    You should easily get another 100,000 out of it. Keep the oil changed and do the maint. These things run forever.
