    Hi, my names Nick and i'm new to this forum. I joined so i may gain tips, insight, and a chance to break my Tacoma in. I've owned my Tacoma for a good year now and I would like to get out and do some good off roading with it, my Tacoma is a 2001 4x4 Extra Cab, V6, I've only put in some minor mods to it such as a leveling kit. I would like to know where are some good places to off road and i would like some help, such as tips on how i can beef my Tacoma up, it would be a lot of help accomplished if any help could be provided thank you. :)

    Ok I shoulda been clearer, if you've got the RR diff. your probably TRD (I should've said "open diff" )

    First thing to do is get out of the new members thread & go to the 1st gen. section & then do the grey wire MOD.. see you over there...;)
