    Hey all:
    I just bought an 05 double cab TRD sport yesterday. I have been lusting after them for a long, long time. Beautiful trucks, and hey, theyre Toyota--they run forever.

    I have been afflicted with a disease known as JEEP for several years, and thi swill be my daily driver. My wife has also informed me that it will not turn into another "project"...unless I enjoy sleeping in the garage.

    I dont want to do much to it, maybe add some 265 tires. No lift. Any other practical/aesthetically pleasing mods you recommend? Also is there anywhere to get a "build sheet" using the VIN? I was able to do this with all my Jeeps atthe stealership--no luck this time...

    I bought it over the internet, and have yet to actually see or drive it as I am in Iraq 'til June.

    The wife says it drives well and is nice...I think so too.

    Here she is, what do you think?

    Nice truck! Get some good floor mats and some seat covers. A bed mat helps allot. Maybe a bed cover or shell. I don't know your tastes but allot of people have done these things and more. Take a look in the mods section! Enjoy the truck!:)

    Thank You for serving our country.

    Welcome to TW.

    Nice truck.

    Buy a bed for the garage.

    Jeeps are a blast! Tons of aftermarket stuff & fun for off-roading.

    You will really enjoy your Tacoma. The 4X4's are awsome. Not as nimble as Jeeps, but very capable.
