    Any suggestions for cheap mods that wont void the warranty?
    How about the black bug shield for the front?
    or is it black enough?
    thanks

    Look at build!
    Welcom from Columbia SC. De-Badge is a cheap mod to start with, you can also paint them and re-install.

    Welcome from Charleston. Great site to get a lot of good ideas. Taking your badges off is really easy and cheap. I took everything off and painted the Tacoma emblems and put them back on but all the others i left off.

    Well I didn't see an exit thread... so
    after two years she's gone.
    wife didn't like it :eek:
    drive train vibrated worse than our 2000 ford e150 van with 100,000 plus miles (much worse) dealer never could find anything (balance your tires)
    got the run around on the 4 leaf rear end TSB, bottomed out with the lawn mower in back.
    could'nt close the tailgate with the mover in it
    and the number one reason
    the payments were Killing Me.[​IMG]

    Gas Mileage was Great

    Yall take care and enjoy your taco's :cheers:
