    Hey guys! I've been lurking the forums for a while.... I was on the "raptor" train for a while, but reality hit, and I dont feel like "affording" another car payment at the pump.

    I am going to PDR school here in a month or so and I will "need" a truck for work/advertising the business.

    I am having a hard time deciding between Magnetic Gray, and Super White!!!

    White is growing on me more and more! I have talked to a few dealers and its looking like I can score a TRD sport DCSB for abou 29k with a few regular options... (having them install a sunroof, I have done my research on here and they use the same one recommended by most on here)

    Plans would be...

    *12" TRD Sport DCSB 4.0/auto.. Just not a fan of LB's
    *Leveling kit or 3" lift
    *new wheels/tires (cant make up my mind here either, saw one with the 06-07 4runner limited wheels and it looks amazing. I really like BMF's but they just look TOO big on the tacos.
    *double din touchscreen head unit with Nav/bluetooth/etc (might just have dealer install the factory Entune or whatever it is called.
    *Black housing headlight mod
    *Black out the grill until I find something I like... (satoshi style)
    *Some nice OEM leather seat covers

    and a few other things...

    I come from a background of ALL cars... lifted Jeep wranglers, camaro SS, "built hondas", a couple wrx's, lowered trucks, etc etc....

    I currently drive an 02' wrx wagon.. Stage II with suspension bits... I love it to death, but.... time to move on!

    awesome, I thought it meant Tech Service bulletin but then I saw everyone's pics with non sagging rears, and thought maybe I was missing something else.

    Thanks for the info, man!

    Were these in certain years?
