    Hey folks, the name's Jacob or Jake, whichever.

    I just recently bought my first Tacoma :)

    '02 TRD x-cab
    5 spd 4x2 w/ rear locking diff
    137k miles

    A little about myself: I'm in the Army reserves, college student, horse trainer. I am also a professional model photographer, thus why the pix aren't just point-&-shoot pix. I'm primarily a 3000GT guy (thus the SN) and my other car is a pearl yellow '94 3000GT VR4, but thats not what we are here for...

    On to the pix! (But first a disclaimer: by "slightly NWS" I mean just that; these are the shots that show nothing... but some might still call them borderline. If it is too borderline, by all means Mods edit them out or I can)


    :rimshot: on to the pix!

    well there are other umm... further back pix ;) but I can't post them here :p

    The AT2's well yes like you said I don't really have anything to contrast them against but so far they are great!
    However, according to the previous owner, something in the alignment was off and caused abnormal tread wear on my P/S rear tire (was the front tire but was rotated). The alignment is now fixed but the tread is still jacked up, so at 65+ i have a fair amount of vibration. Do I have any options other than replacing the tire?

    *edit* Photography portfolio: the most compilation of my work safe stuff is here:
