    2007 Tacoma Four Door 4x4, TRD, 4.0
    Hi All.....


    I'm a 27yo student and diver from New Orleans(NOLA). I stayed for both Katrina and Gustav. I bought my 2007 Tacoma DC 4x4 new in January of 2007. She had about 30miles on her at that point in time.


    I have TRD seat covers. I installed a great audio system. Alpine 6x9 and 6.5's in the doors. An Alpine face with I-pod hookup. A JL 500watt mono amp that is for now pushing a Punch speaker mounted to a 10" bazooka tube. I also have a TomTom GPS.

    I got very angry at the fender flares and tore them off :)


    Just yesterday I ordered a full Grille Guard.

    Tomorrow I will be ordering a lift kit from Toy Tec. 3" 885 coils with AAL Rears, plus a Differential Drop for the front.


    Im keeping my stock 16" wheels, but mounting 285/75-16 BFG Mudder KM2's.




    I will take pics and post the install of all this stuff if you guys would like me to.



    I change my oil every 4000 miles or so using 5 quarts of fully synthetic plus a quart of Lucas oil stabilizer. I I also use teh Lucas "fuel treatment". I buy the stuff by the gallon. $30 per gallon. Thats good for about 7000miles.


    I took off my skid plate and painted it black.


    I love my Tacoma. I've used her to tow boats. Ive carried my Honda 650 in her bed a million times. I moved out my entire apartment in less than a day(by myself), despite having only a five foot bed on a "midsize" truck.

    I moved out everything before Hurricane Gustav to higher ground(no renters insurance).


    After these mods(the lift, tires, and grille guard) I would like 6 lights(KC maybe?), and a roof rack. Those two mods are most important to me.


    Somewhere sown the line I want to get an ARE camper top and possibly a TRD supercharger.



    Im going to school for business and want what I can only describe as "my own place somewhere warm".


    An Eco-Lodge, charter fishing operation, dive shop etc. Preferably somewhere in the 3rd world. And I plan to have a Tacoma by my side.



    Well thats all I can think to write. Any one wanna hit me up or ask a question dont hesitate.

    Welcome to TW! Good looking truck. Are you going to fill in the holes from where you removed the fenders or are you going to get some aftermarket flares?

    Im gonna see how she looks after the lift/new tires. I like the more aggressive look it has w/o flares. If I do though, they will be black bushwhackers.
