    Been lurking here since Halloween when I bought my first Tacoma, a 2018 MGM 2WD SR after driving a Mustang the past couple years.

    Had always driven Ford trucks prior, but decided on something different this time around.

    Loving the Tacoma so far and with the help of this forum have been bitten by the mod bug.

    So far I have added matte black Tacoma tailgate letter inserts, a TRD Faux grille, and as of December 28, 265/75/16 Falken Wildpeaks.

    Next up I will be tinting the windows and adding fog lights, ditch lights and lower bumper light bar. Also looking into Bilstein 5100 front shocks to level out the front end.

    Eventually I would like to add a bed rack and a rtt and tackle a few moderate off road trails in Georgia and get my feet wet into the world of overlanding.

    Thanks, love the grey. It was the color of my last F-150 as well.

    I definitely agree.
    How are you liking the WildPeaks? I’m looking into replacing the stocks.

    I’m loving them. Quiet as can be and no rubbing. Even with the 2.7 I really haven’t noticed any power loss from the stock tires. And they’re about as big as I could go so once I add the Bilsteins up front they won’t look small.

    Good to know,Thanks. Personally I think they look awesome on the stock suspension IMO. But I’m honestly thinking about the 5100’s myself. $$ is a little tight, so I figured one thing at a time. Lol

    Understandable. I’m on a budget as well so doing a little at a time, but figured tires would make the most difference especially on a 2wd. Really wanted to go with new wheels too, but am actually liking the look with the stock steelies.

    Lights are coming next.

    Welcome! Nice Tacoma too BTW. I also changed out my tires not to long ago to the Falken 265/75/16's and I've been really impressed so far.

    Can’t beat them for the price. Looked at the Cooper Pro’s too, but at $80 more/tire...sheesh.
