    Working on it.
    This is my first post here on the forum. I just got a 2014 Toyota Tacoma Magnetic Gray Metallic 4WD Double Cab Long Bed TRD-Sport last Wednesday. Not my first Toyota, I had a 1985 4Runner I bought new. Lasted 10 years, a little under powered with a 4 cylinder and 33" tires on it.

    Got my first Taco, finally. Money is tight and they are hard as hell to find, so she is about as plain as Jane right now. Can't wait to change that! [​IMG]

    Misread your message. Do you happen to have a link on those? I am shopping around for the future wheel upgrade, and I really like that set.

    Got my 2013 trd sport dclb a couple months ago and just finished my firs mod last night. Put on a fold a cover on and really happy with the look. Next is nerf bars, tint, suspension in May, and tires when these go out. Good to be among like minded individuals!

    Some AMAZING trucks on here!

    Well I just bought my first new Tacoma yesterday!!! A 2014 DBLC V6 4x4 with Sport package and JBL Premium. His name is Tony and he's just amazing!!! This isn't my first tacoma, my first being a 2001 Xtra Cab, traded her (Tonya) in, kind of sad but wow, what a change with pretty much everything!! Look forward to driving and adding Leather, Fog light mod, Maverick wheels, Tailgate Mod, and probably a few others here and there. :)
