    Brand new to the Toyota world. Picked up my first one this past Sunday. 07 Tacoma DblCab TRD PreRunner. Came into this from a Dodge Megacab, interior size and the loss of my V8 growl is gonna take some gettin used to but at $50 less per fill up I'm sure I'll manage :D

    Site looks great, see alot of friendly people so far being pretty generous with the advice, very cool.

    Immediate plans:
    Cool air intake
    Exhaust
    Adjustable struts/shocks
    Tint
    Sound

    Dealer was kind enough to throw on some brand new tires before I left so I'll prolly wait on any type of real lift that'll make those new tires a waste. Might as well get some use out of em.

    Cheers!
    Dave
