    G'day all.
    Just thought i would pop in and introduce myself into this forum.
    I have what we call the Toyota Hilux here. It is the same vehicle as your Tacomas.
    Look forward to many more days of reading in here.

    I have two photos of my truck on my profile (I think?)
    Am currently studying in depth the tacoma 2005+ sound system install thread hehe.
    Have just started to put together sub box to fit behind rear seat as of today.

    Have also been researching and got a few quotes on audio equipment imported from the USA as it is much cheaper to import than buy here.
    Feel free to recommend any retailers you think i should try for this equipment also fellas.

    Our $AU dollar has you blokes covered at the moment :)

    And yes i'm 1 Hour drive North of Sydney on the East Coast of Australia.
    We have much nicer beaches than Sydney though haha!!!!

    Welcome to TacomaWorld from Pennsylvania! Nice looking Hilux! Only wish we could get a Diesel here in the USA! That would be nice! Looks like you do not go Off-Roading with those tires.
