    I'm a new owner. Picked up my 2012 Double Cab Tacoma 4x4 with the TRD Offroad and V6 Tow Package.

    I'm not new to the forum world but definitely new to trucks. My other ride is a 2009 Ford Mustang GT. I'll try not to ask too many noob questions. I bought the Tacoma as my new DD and also have plans to do a bit of work to prep it for my cross country road trip to Alaska. Looking forward to learning a lot and helping the community where I can.

    Cheers

    Thanks for the welcome all.

    Plan is July-ish. On the list of things to do is a grill guard, driving lights, truck bed cover and a gas tank skid plate. Gotta find places where I can buy them and then either do the install myself or have it done.

    Will do

    Hello fellow Georgian. Like the way your truck looks. Any good shops around here where I can find parts etc?

    Are there any Tacoma meets around the Atlanta area.

    Thanks! I honestly don't know because I order my parts online. As far as meets in the ATL I would be up for that as well but haven't seen much chatter on the subject. I do browse the GA section and notice there's a meet in March (but it's not in ATL).
