    Hi all, I've been reading for a little while and TW looks like a great site. I've been driving full-size trucks for over ten years and decided I didn't need to put up with 12mpg (and the repair bills!) anymore. Found this 2006 4x4 access cab this spring with 3,625 miles on the odometer. The four cylinder does great pulling my boats and the fuel savings has really been nice. :)

    Here's a picture when I bought the Tacoma:

    Here's the first mod (LEER 100R topper):

    Next up will be some better tires for this winter. :D

    Thanks for the welcome guys. This truck has proven itself to be very capable this past summer - towing the boats, exploring two tracks/logging roads - never missed a beat. Just wish i could sell the old truck! :)
