    I have never owned a new car before, and for my first brand new vehicle, I chose one that I truly fell in love with.

    I am now a proud owner of a 2008 Tacoma Double Cab in Radiant Red. Now I can't keep my hand off of the computer mouse looking for upgrades and mods!

    I just finished installing a Billet upper and lower grill today. I will post pics tomorrow. Very easy to install. I am looking into a cold air intake, exhaust and rims for my next investment. Not sure what styles I will go with yet though.

    I am extremely picky when it comes to rims, to me that is what makes a vehicle look different from others next to it.

    I am looking at the K&N intakes but it looks like other companys make some good products as well.

    I havent found any that have cought my eye. I have just been searching around and looking at different styles. I am into the old school 5 spoke rims, but those wouldnt look good on this truck.

    Thanks brother, I love the work you did with the wiper switch. It rained out here in Tucson this week, and I was asking myself why Toyota went with a wiper controller that doesnt adjust the speed very well. I might look into this mod for myself.
