    2010 PreRunner SR5 4x2. Windows already tinted, wind deflectors and sun shield. It's the perfect starting platform for what I want this truck to be. :headbang:

    Thanks, guys! I'm starting some modding this weekend. I'm coming from a little black Scion to a big white Tacoma. I don't think I could have gone any more opposite in the Toyota family other than a Tundra. haha

    Switching from a Scion xB to a Tacoma was one of the best decisions I ever made. I loved my Scion, but it was slammed, flashy, and set up for carshows. I get to fish, hunt, camp, and off road in my truck, couldnt do it in an xB that was dropped 3 inches.

    I had the exact same situation. My exhaust in the Scion was less than an inch off of the ground. It was a trophy winner. Custom upholstered interior, custom painted interior trim, slammed to the ground, completely blacked out exterior with green accents, ridiculously loud sound system (148.3dB), among many other things.

    I've gone from having to drive up on 2x4s to fit a low profile jack underneath my car, to being able to crawl under it. Haha I'm hoping to take some of what I learned while working on my Scion and make this truck one badass mofo. Installed the system a couple days ago, flowmasters last week, next will probably be two sets of HIDs. :D
