    '12 Tacoma TRD OR 6spd
    Magnetic Gray Metallic
    Purchased 02-17-2012

    Mods:
    TRD Catback exhaust
    Bed Extender
    Weathertech Ventshades
    Window Tint 35%
    All Weather Mats
    Rugged Cover soft tonneau
    BFG AT/KO 265/75R16
    Center caps removed from stock wheels

    This build will be rather tame in comparison as it is my daily driver and I need to retain decent gas mileage as well as drivability. The goals are to make it a more functional vehicle for all road conditions, as well as occasional jaunts off the paved road. For that, nothing extreme is needed, just a bit more umpf.

    Here are some pics of how the truck sits today.

    Here is the picture from the delivery. The silver one is my wife's truck which I refer to as Dr Jekyl.

    Here are some close up shots of some of the mods so far.

    This is the Rugged Cover Tonneau which is a great product!!! Took all of 20 minutes to install and comes with an LED dome light inside. Easily one of my favorite mods.

    Weather Tech vent visors, in channel version.

    I opted for the bed extender for this Tacoma. So far I'm pretty pleased with it, as it works great to reduce the room down to exactly what I need for my work gear.

    Some window vinyl I've had custom done.

    In case you missed it, I'm an avid road cyclist and Specialized is my bike of choice for the time being.

    Also a Disturbed fan, and there just had to be the "His" and "Hers" id's on the trucks since the wife has a Taco too.

    Here is a picture from my last Tacoma, an identically equipped 2006 TRD OR. I don't have any good pictures with the few mods I did to it, but so far, I have done a bit more, minus step bars on the new one.
