    Hey everyone...I just bought an '07 Tacoma Access Cab 4WD SR5 TRD Off Road Access Cab this week, V6 six speed manual with only 10,000 miles, like new and still under warranty! I love this truck, have been searching for one for awhile and finally found just exactly the combo I was looking for Tuesday morning.

    I'm located in Indianapolis, belong to a couple of motorcycle forums (Wristtwisters.com rocks!), but this is my first Toyota forum. I've also got a '94 4x4 Pickup, great old truck but going to sell it now that I've got the perfect Tacoma.

    I've spent the last couple of days since I bought the Tacoma researching all the stuff I want to do to it. Putting a set of Bridgestone Revo tires on tomorrow, the stock BFG's are almost worn out at 10K already. Love the Revos on my '94, after reading all the reviews on Tirerack.com it seems like they're the best choice for my new truck as well. Bumping up to the 265/75R16 from the stock 265/70R16, will add about an inch and fill up the wheelwells better. Going to order up the Bilstein 5100 shocks also to firm up the ride a bit and raise the front end slightly. Next will come a short shifter kit (URD or TRD?), then eventually the TRD cold air intake and exhaust.

    Anyway, I've been reading through the threads here and found a lot of great info, just wanted to say hi.

    Here's some pics of the old and the new...

    Thanks guys! That old '94 is an awesome truck, 5 speed, manual locking hubs, 22RE 4 cylinder, has about 140,000 miles on it now, should have lots left. Selling it to one of my technicians that's helped maintain it, he loves it and I like the idea of it going to an enthusiast.

    I'll miss it but glad it's going to a good home and will still be around my office. I'm excited about starting to mod the Tacoma now, almost feel guilty about all its creature comforts, jeez, air conditioning!
