    New seat covers and floor mats made a huge improvement in my 08...So that could be a place to start for you.

    If you wanted to you could pull out some of the dash trim and paint it. Get real crazy and re-upholster the headliner and or floor.

    The first thing I did when I bought my Tacoma was put seat covers on and replaced the floor mats with thick rubber ones that hold water and mud. And I had the bed Rhino lined. Seat covers will keep your seats clean if you ever decide to sell.
