    I WAS a dedicated Nissan Maxima loyalist for the past 10+ years and said I would never get anything different. That changed when I found a one-owner black 2010 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner SR5 on a friend of the families dealer lot. Only 21,000 miles were on it and they gave me great deal/trade-in so I didn't hesitate.

    Front windows are getting tinted this week(if I have time) but I have made some minor updates to it already: black XD rims, 3" nerf bars, OEM weather ready Tacoma floor mats, window/bug deflectors and a K&N filter.

    Next move will probably be a TonnoPro Tri-Fold tonneau, black bully bar and a new grill. Looking to get the tonneau soon but still want to do more research on brands, etc. Debating on removing the mud flaps but they do a really good job of keeping crap off the side.

    Enjoy the site already and look forward to learning more.

    Cheers!
