    Purchased Taco Dbl Cab 4WD TRD Sport auto. (not sure I've got all the abbreviations correct). Only thing I added was floor mats from dealership. I sorta wish I had gotten manual, but no biggie. Best car I've ever had...no question.

    Wife has Sequoia...we like Toyota. (also Honda/Acura, but MDX is too small for wife and nothing beats a 4WD Tacoma).

    I am new to this site, but I'll be getting info mods like cold air intake, exhaust, supercharger, brakes. I prefer Toyota official parts. (but it looks like K&N is generally acceptable?). I just want it to run right and for a long time.

    I'm no "gear head" so I'll have dealership do the work...unless that is a sucker thing to do?

    2 kids, married, love the outdoors, hunt & fish, live in Texas (but I'm no redneck)...that's about all I can think of for now. Let me know if you have suggestions for me. I'll be reading the other threads...

    Welcome to TW, we're all about DIY 'round here, generally, paying dealership shop rates are things we try to avoid. Since I've been on this site, I have done much to my truck that I thought I would have to pay someone else to do, and I'm no mechanic either.
    We usually ask of members to use the search function as much as possible before posting a thread, I have found that about 90% of the time I have a question about my truck, someone else here has already had that same issue.
