    Thanks everyone! Needless to say I would not have gotten this far without TW. If I were a rich man I would immediately put another $5k+ into lift, tires, plate bumper, color-matched grille/handles/mirrors/badges and the thousand other tiny things I'd love to do with it. But for starters I'll just tint the front windows and get weathertech liners when they come out... and if I can swing it, heated wet Okoles. Oh and maybe an Avid step bar.

    That's awesome! Congratulations.

    Like you, I dreamed about having a Tacoma for years-- actually, 15 years. And I decided about 10 years ago I wouldn't buy one until I had a job where I could afford the Tacoma I really wanted, not a stripped down one. Last February it finally happened. And my only regret? I should have gone with the pyrite mica. I let my friends talk me into getting a black one. It's a good looking truck, and I'm happy with it. But... oh, I love that pyrite mica.

    Beautiful truck, congrats again.

    Congrats from another pyrite owner. Get a ton of compliments on the color. My Avids are on order and should be here in a week or so (will post pics when installed). Same boat as you with mods, have to do them one at a time.
