    Greetings everyone!
    So I have a new 2011 Tacoma Reg. cab Std. bed, 2WD, AT. I put a K&N air filter in it, and I run it on premium. The filter took most of the acceleration lag away, and the gas helps it run smoothly. I've put 2,500 mi. on it, so far... It also did the Cajon Pass with AC on, a passenger and a full load, effortlessly.
    The only things I am not pleased with are the bench seat, the utter lack of any available options/legit mods, and the whole wheel spacer issue...my tires are way too thin!
    It's a good truck, don't get me wrong. I'm not hating, I'm just frustrated.

    In addition, I have now installed OEM style fog lights in the front bumper, where they had made a spot for them at the factory from the start. Not being available on 4cyl. models is just not reasonable, nor is the $850 dealer installed fog lights option. $107- light kit from K2 Motor and $150- install.
