    So I've been on this site for a while, been kind of in the background for the most part. But like many other's I have done a lot of things to my Taco before and especially since I've joined this sight. Forgive some of the pictures as my camera isn't the best. This is my first vehicle, I got in back in October of 2008. 2001 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 ext. cab SR5 with 130,000 on the ODO when I got her, approaching 170,000 currently. Came with Westin Nerf Bars and 16x8 American Racing Venturas. Here she is at the dealer(as my gf calls it, when it was a virgin) :

    I redid all of my lights: Blacked out headlight, blacked out clear corners, blacked out turn signals, Black JBL tail lights, Black out third brake light cover, and some Walmart HID driving lights because the new headlights weren't as bright as stock:
