    Hello TacomaWorld. I've been lucky enough to have a 2006 Toyota Tacoma as my first car.

    The truck is an Access Cab PreRunner SR5 with the V6 Tow Package. It was bought used with only 66k miles on it in 2014 and it now has 94k as of exactly two years of owning it. I love everything about this truck, but as a road cyclist, mountain biker, and motocross rider, I will always have an itch to modify things, so here it goes:

    Pioneer FHX700BT Head Unit. Has USB, Bluetooth, AUX, and...wait for it...FM Radio. Much needed upgrade.

    JBL GT7 Series Speakers. 5 1/4" in the rear doors, 9 x 6" in the fronts. Tweeters were kept stock. I also tried foam baffles which are shown in the picture, but they sounded horrible so I took them off. I hate dealing with the door panels.

    After 94k miles of life, I retired the old Dunlop AT20's and went with Cooper's Discoverer ATP in P265/75R16 (32" tires. No lift and they still don't rub!!!!). I haven't gotten a full tank out of them yet, but they hum more than the Dunlops and, by the looks of the fuel gauge, the mileage may suffer a bit too :boom: .
    I also bought some Amber LED fog lights off eBay. They aren't bad except that they are a bit too dim, and the color is a little off (looks more orange). I plan on just putting an LED pod in there :cool:

    *C O M I N G S O O N (if the job keeps going well)*
    BHLM + Retrofit Mini H1 + HID + LED DTRL's (I'm excited for these!)
    Rockville 600w Compact Subwoofer
    Front Bilstein 5100's to level
    MBRP Turndown Exhaust
    Some some cold air intake
