    Hey everyone, my name is Sean

    I've been lurking around this site for a few weeks now reading and absorbing as much info as I can and a week ago today...I bought my first Tacoma (first truck actually). Every single car I've owned until last week has always been a sports car...until now. 1 week deep into ownership and I'm already in love with this truck.

    Anyways, just wanted to pop-in and say "hello" and introduce myself to you guys. :thumbsup:

    Haha, I'm surprised I didn't do the same thing. I just bought my first truck almost 3 weeks ago and thanks to TW have about five cheap changes I want to make this weekend and next, and about 527474828 not-so-cheap ones I want to make. I had a series of Civics over the years and they were all pretty much stock though. Welcome from the East Bay!

    Welcome to TW, Sean and Tacobot, I'm glad you're both lovin your Tacomas. I have owned 4 other trucks in my life and hands down I love my Tacoma above the rest. For your sakes I hope you're independently wealthy, if not, get off this site and never, never return. It is a money sucking vortex. To late for me, I'm addicted. Well I'm guessing we'll be seeing you both around for some time.

    Your warning cracks me up! Prior to this truck I had a WRX STi, an e46 M3 (two of those actually) and a Volkswagen R32. They all have their own forums similar to this, and within days of having all those cars, I was modifying them with little (and not so little) things I found on the boards. That's why this time I bought a vehicle that just had everything I wanted already.....although I would like the TRD supercharger, and I'd like to redo the lift, and I might do some different wheels, and some sliders, and a skid plate...and..and..and..and..HAHAHA

    I also work in Larkspur...small world! I wonder if I've seen you around already. I've had my eye on Tacomas for the past 4.5 months, literally noticing every single one. Hahaha

    I am seriously considering the supercharger but have much research here on the boards to do first. Part of the reason I bought a Toyota is their legendary reputation for lasting forever....wouldn't want to do anything to compromise that....or would I? HAHAHA

    Supercharger - probably the single most covited mod on the site. Hope you realize your desire. I suppose if I consider all the money I've droppen on my Taco, I could have afforded a supercharger twice over.
