    Well guys, I have finally got around to getting some pictures posted. Will post some more later! Have had the truck for about 3 weeks now. Let me know what you guys think!

    My first mods will probably be a hitch cover, sport pedals, and a locking gas cap. But hopefully by the end of the year I'll have a performance exhaust.

    When I custom ordered it I told them no pinstripe. I go to pick it up, and look, theyve decided to put the stupid thing on. I may take it off later, but it looks alright for now. Im thinking of possibly getting a Jardine, but I don't know exactly what I'm looking for yet.

    Good looking truck! I agree on the removal of the pin stripe. I bought mine used and it had pin stripes and the stick on fake vents on the side of the front quarter panels. Not cool. Removed all the second day I owned it.

    Nice. I love black but keeping it clean was a pain in the ass. I had a black 96 Tacoma. Now I have an 08 TRD Sport in silver.

    That picture was taken the day I brought it home, so I think it was just shiny like that from the factory. And it there was also a huge glare as well.
