    Just picked up a 2011 DCSB TRD sport 4x4 two weeks ago for work purposes and I gotta say....I fricking love this truck. I'm new to the forum, so hope to add some stuff on it like oem roof racks, a pop n lock power kit, a tonneau cover, an hid retrofit, and possibly an indash navi!

    The price sounds high for that kind of milage. There is a 2007 with 80 K listed in car max for $13,000.

    Pricing is variable depending on where you live so that info might be nice but it does sound a bit high for the mileage.

    I've been reading these forums for a little while now but I bought a '13 double cab today to replace my '03 access cab so it looks like I'll be a Tacoma owner for another decade or so.

    Thanks to everybody for all the advice and feedback!

    I got a 2013 Toyota Tacoma Limited basically as a birthday gift from my parents. Had 500 miles on it when we bought it, it now has 5700. Quite a bit of which has been off road. I have taken Forge out in my back woods on my property and properties around me with a couple of friends when it was dryer. There were times I had to have two friends get out at one time just to spot me. All I gotta say is, I'm so glad I went with a Toyota, and a pickup truck, oh boy!

    Greetings to all the members here. I have been lurking around here for some time doing lots of research and finally landed on a 2013 Pyrite Mica Access Cab V6 AT TRD Off Road. It took a little while to find exactly what I was looking for but it was worth the wait. I am really enjoying the new truck. Thanks for all the help.

    The newest vehicle I've owned so far. God I love it!! first thing first for me was of course a lift and tires. I am a previous Jeep TJ Rubicon owner and she was my baby for the longest time. Not s reliable so I had to move on to something that the wife could drive and something that might be good for an up and coming family. the DC is great cause I have plenty of storage nd moving space, plus when we have a kid it will work great for the family. Bu like I said lift and tires.
    I bought the ToyTec bilstien 5100 lift with new coilovers up front and Add a Leaf in the back. Shortly after that I bought some Built Right Uni Ball UCAs and threw it all together. she sits pretty now, alignment alright now and it still feels smooth. Just recently bought the 17" XD Addict Rims, which I LOVE wrapped around those are some Toyo Open Country ATs. Figured that it was a daily driver and I shouldn't waste the extra money on MTs even though im so use to them owning my old Rubicon. Well Im jumping into my first group buy today and getting some new LCA skid plates and the steel caps for my Cab Mount Chop Mod Im doing soon. Will add photos soon to show where im at with the build.​

    Whats up everyone.....Just got a 2012 4x4 Taco with 6 ft bed in white over the weekend.
    Love it.......I had an '06 Ivan Stewart edition that I sold about 6 months ago and got an F250 Twin Turbo Diesel. Biggest mistake of my life. F250 was a pos, so I went back to old faithful.

    Ill keep it all stock, but will end up putting 6 inch lift kid with some rims/tires.

    Cheers...

    I've been looking at double cabs for awhile, my local toyota dealer doesn't want to come down off the sticker much at all though.

    How's it goin y'all? New member from Pittsburgh, just bought a 2013 Barcelona Red Tacoma Doublecab 4wd BAJA T/X two weeks ago (I'll post pictures when I get them uploaded). My wife totaled her '97 V8 AWD Mountaineer and I've been looking for a replacement, found this 3 week old Baja T/X out in Hollidaysburg, Pa. so I jumped on it. It was listed for $38k but got them down to $34k, two miles on it when I bought it. Love this truck, drives and rides completely different the a stock Tacoma does. Wish I still lived out in Oregon so I could take it out on the dunes and dessert.

    Hello my fellow Tacoma friends……..I look to be the new born on this rainy Florida day. It took a few weeks but it looks like its time to get online again and start having fun. Look forward to digging in and seeing what everyone else has going on. Talk to you all soon……

    Thank you for the welcome.......the bumper is made by Body Armor. I have listed the company link below, I did a lot of research and was not able to find a company that provided a "Complete" package. Bumpers, running boards, rear bumper, rear tire carrier swing arm and tail light covers. The product is extremely well built and the fit and finish is perfect. I have built show cars and for SEMA, so I am very particular. A grade "A" company products and service.

    I did find alot of other companies offering excellent products and the quality very good, these companies did not offer a full package. I need to have a seamless flow to the look I wanted. I would encourage you to shop around and buy what "YOU WANT" on your truck. You have alot of good choices to choose from.

    Here are a few pics of the rear that I did not have up yet...:)
