    Hey all. Just bought an 05 TRD Sport today and have been reading these forums all evening and already learned a lot so I decided to register. This is my first Tacoma and I totally love it so far! I probably won't do much in the way of modding it, I have a '55 VW for that. I can't leave anything alone though, so I'm sure I'll do something to it at some point, lol. Here's some pics of it

    Thanks guys! Yeah, you're probably right, lol. Maybe some 5100's, an AAL, some better tires...
    My last truck was a wore-out 99 Ranger, so this is quite a step up for me! That thing was a total turd, leaked oil, was gutless, etc etc. I'm pretty stoked with the Tacoma. One of the first things I will probably do is the overhead compass/temp indicator fix, it doesn't work.

    Thanks for the warm welcome. What ever I do to the truck will probably happen pretty slowly. My wife is expecting (our first!) and we only have my income. And a mortgage. In So Cal. And when it comes to modding things, the bug will always take precedent when there is spare $ floating around. Hopefully by this summer it will have about 300 hp :eek:
