    Hello fellow GA Taco lovers! Been stalking TW for months trying to gain some knowledge, but finally signed up after purchasing my first Taco! I'm new to all this.... First Tacoma I've ever owned, first forum I've ever joined, so I thought it'd be fitting to call myself "Rookie", especially by comparison to a lot of you guys. I'm amazed by the level of experience and comradery you guys share... Hoping to get in on some of that!

    Bought this used a couple weeks ago:
    Tacoma.jpg

    Very stock (for now ;)) except the lift/wheels/tires but plan to make this a fun long-term project. It's my commuter car & kid hauler 99% of the time, but hoping to join you guys on the trails whenever my packed schedule allows. (someone tell my wife to quit booking up my weekends!) :ballchain:

    Where do I begin?!?!

    All my rigs are purpose built. From crawling to camping. I also enjoy a nice stock truck for what that’s worth. Toyota’s are the jam!
    What up Phil!

    You wants something for that Taco you let me know. You trying to get into a new ridiculous hobbie, let me know. You trying to spend to much time and money on your truck, you have come to the right place!

    Welcome to the forum and community. Looking forward to meeting you in person.

    Many of the off- pavement opportunities here have some water crossings. A cheap, easy, and super helpful is the rear diff breather mod. I would suggest the behind the taillight version. I'll see if I can find the link later.

    There is also a mod day coming up in December that will be hosted by @BYJOSHCOOK.

    Thanks I'll check out that mod for sure!

    Looks like the 14th is gonna win out, can't make it but I did cast my vote for the 7th. Can't go into detail at the moment, but I have some irks about the suspension that I inherited, hopefully you guys can give me advice on tuning it up.
