    Hey everybody. I just recently purchased my 2008 DC 4X4 Tacoma last weekend. So far I love everything about this truck. I just returned from Reno yesterday. My family and I were stuck in traffic because of a moderate snow storm in the Sierra's. The best part was I got to feel the 4 wheel drive for the first time which made a huge difference on the lightly snow covered roads. Anyway to get to the topic I was wondering if anyone had some mo suggestions for my truck that are relatively inexpensive for now. I am considering the Tacoma toolbox for one because of the "No-Mod Required" fit. Also some nice running boards (or nerf bars, not sure what's better.) Any info or other mod ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and happy to be a part of the Tacoma World family!!!:D

    Depending on what you are going ot do with the truck you should steer away from the nerf bars if you are going to do any offroading look into rock sliders. They are a must on most trails save you a bundle on body work.

    #1 Tires - The stock Dunlops or BFG "rugged fails" are the weakest link in the chain...

    #2 Seat covers - The light grey interior stains quite easily especially if you "use" your truck. I have the Wet Okoles...
