    Hey there,

    Welcome and thanks for taking a look! This is my first attempt at creating any sort of TW thread, so bear with me. I'm creating this mostly to document everything I do, have done, and plan to do to my latest Tacoma. I'll also be posting pictures of off-road adventures at times. This is my 4th Tacoma and I've also had 2 other Toyota pick-up trucks before they went to Tacoma branding. So basically, I've been driving a Toyota truck since before I got my driver's license at 16. Here's a list of them:

    1983 Toyota Single Cab Long Bed Pick-Up 4cyl 4-speed Manual, Tan - Sold
    1992 Toyota XtraCab Long Bed 4cyl 5-speed Manual, Dark Gray Metallic - Totaled (my fault)
    1999 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road XtraCab PreRunner V6 Automatic, Black Metallic - Traded
    2008 Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport DCLB PreRunner V6 Automatic, Black Sand Pearl - Totaled (not my fault)
    2012 Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport DCLB 4x4 V6 Automatic with JBL, Black - Sold

    Current Truck:
    2018 Cement TRD Off-Road DCLB 4x4 V6 Automatic with Premium Off-Road/Tech, Leather and JBL.

    Purchased 12/19/2017


    I've had a few things done to it in the first month already, so I will be updating this whenever I have time.

    12/19/2017 - The day I took delivery.

    Did you have the radar recalibrated for the lift? Did you order the grill and Pro radar piece through the dealer? Awesome looking truck. Mine's coming in next month and I can't wait!!

    Thanks man! My dealer had the grille and the garnish piece in stock. OEM is the way to go for the grille. Toyota "recommends" a recalibration, but mine works fine. As long as you do it right, it'll be fine. Congrats on the new truck!

    Yeah, I've heard the term "unicorn" a few times already!

    Rare because it's a Cement DCLB OR with every factory option available.

    There are very few trucks around here with both tech and premium. And I don't think that there is a DCLB OR with tech and premium in any color anywhere. Almost does not exist. Friend just had to order one in white and its getting built on 02/26.

    A couple popped up in NorCal and lasted about an hour before they were claimed. I ordered the exact replica of Hellppy's and it's getting built on 2/21. I heard unicorn a lot also and ran into issues with dealers not wanting to order it. Found one who was happy to do it, gave me a decent enough price, and has been great with communication. Now I just have to be patient.
