    None yet from me.
    I bought my 2009 Tacoma from a used car dealer after looking many places for one. I need to know how to tell what the accurate description and model specs are. I also want to increase the headlighting in some way - will it help by putting fog lamps into the recesses where there are none?
    I don't plan on any mods to make it lower, higher, louder, faster, prettier, but may want to do the headlighting work myself.

    Welcome to TW! @crashnburn80 has a great write-up for increasing your headlight output.

    *Oh and alot of people say they aren't going to mod their Tacoma, but that rarely works out for them. :D

    Sounds like you have a base model (not a TRD sport or off-road) since you don't have fogs already installed. Do you have chrome grill and rear bumper and black door handles? Base model. Is it 4x4 or 4x2? If 4x2, does it have 6 lugs or 5 lugs on each wheel? 6 lug 4x2 would be a pre-runner (looks like a 4x4). Long bed = 6', short bed = 5'. Double cab = 4 doors, xtra cab = 2 door with jump seats in back and suicide rear doors. Reg cab = 2 doors and front seat only.

    You forgot SR5. Chrome rear bumper should be SR5. Base trucks came with black bumpers.

    It was an option if I am not mistaken. Mine came with them too, but I don’t think they all did.
