    Hello ladies and Gents! Just want to introduce myself as a Newbie in the forum, and a newbie with truck knowledge. Just bought a 2012 Double Cab PreRunner but it's only a 4 banger (hope i won't regret it later) since I'll be commuting back and fort from SoCal to NorCal. I'm an active duty in the U.S. Navy and also proud to serve this country. One of the main reasons I bought a Truck is to haul my sportbike when I go to track days (3-6x a year). Hope to get more knowledge from you guys cuz i'll be asking tons of questions about the truck.

    Thanks for reading. Take care and God speed! :)

    Thanx guys. It's all stock but I will take a pic tomorrow and post it. I am installing my 1st mod which is just a simple black bull bar, then HIDs, & running board. Looking to put new wheels but undecided how I'll go about doing it so still have to do further research on what's best. I've been browsing the forum for more info. :)

    Just a word of advice...I would stay away from the typical bull bar/grille guards. In a wreck, they will crumple and end up causing more damage than you'd have if you had nothing up front.

    You will see that 99% of people on here save up and get true bull bars (Armor Tech Offroad [ATO], All-Pro, etc...). That will be your best bet.

    That's all just my $.02, as usual.
