    Hey everyone, new to the site and to trucks in general.. Had an 04 silverado 2500HD 4x4 8" lift 37" tires yada yada.. But wanted something reliable LOL so I bought my first Toyota! I know toyotas last forever so I just got a 2011 Tacoma TX PRO. LOVE it so far. Power is nice and it rides smooth!

    Couple things I've done so far and things that I want to do are...

    Done:
    6k HID hi/lo kit
    Snugtop camper

    Plans:
    3 or 4" lift (undsided how yet) Really want FOX,King or ICON shocks
    airlift bags for the rear to help with drooping while towing my car
    Glassworks Front and rear fenders
    34 or 35" tires on the factory wheels
    Possibly a medium travel kit (but in the future)
    Color matched front grill, mirrors, door handles and rear bumper
    Oh and tinted windows

    Now of course I'm still a noob so please take it easy on me if i've made some noob plans but this is what i'd like to do if possible. overall goal is to get a little more performance out of it without making it look "TO extreme". Make people look at it and ask "if it came like that stock" If that makes sense LOL..

    Nothing "wrong" per se but I just want it color matched. I like that better :)
