    Hey all!

    My name is Mike and I live in Seattle. I just recently graduated from College (Gonzaga University, GO ZAGS!) and my whole family chipped in to get me my first vehicle: 2010 Tacoma 4x4 SR5 Access Cab Super White. I have been reading tons on this site (probly 2 hours a day, i'm addicted) and am in love with my Taco. I'm very excited to do a bunch of mods that I want (except I start Graduate School in September so that will slow me down). Already started this summer (painted wheels black, debadged, sockmonkey decals, maglite mod) but I really can't wait for my lift and wheels and tires.

    TW is great to learn more about our trucks and I really appreciate the help that everyone has given me so far, so I figured I needed to actually introduce myself.

    P.S. Where the Seattle people at? I saw in the NW thread that there are some people in the seattle suburbs (covington, kent, auburn), but when I drive to work (downtown Seattle) I see a bunch of Tacos, but never really people from Seattle. Well, people from the NW we gotta get a mod day and meet/greet/eat day as well going soon since the summers in the NW are the best!

    -Mike

    Welcome!

    This place will get you addicted, but it's great for everything Tacoma related!

    I'm in Seattle, too (well, I work downtown and live in Burien). You might see me rocking the Super White SR5 Access Cab 4x4 up and down Airport Way on a daily basis.

    Make sure you check out the TSBs and everything for your truck. Then get modding!

    Hi!

    Where you at in Seattle?

    I work downtown, too. But I'm over on the Eastside a lot for work and fun.

    Thanks for the advice about the TSBs. I had done some light reading about them and will definitely be checkin them out more when I get closer to the big mods

    I'm actually in the part that just got annexed by Burien. Near Boulevard Park, right down the road from Rainier Golf and CC.

    I've got lots of friends over in West Seattle.

    I'm out in Covington but you guys can probably guess where I work. Hint, its the pier with the big red and white ships.

    I usually come in to work via the 509 and Marginal way.

    Hi Mike, Thanks for the welcome to Tacoma World. I was wondering if you know any awesome 4 wheeling areas around Washington?
