    Hi everyone. I just purchased an 05 tacoma PreRunner SR5 Red Pearl. I love the truck. Just sold my 03 acura TL Type S White Diamond Pearl. I'm very happy with this car. I have so many home improvement projects I want to do but never have the truck to haul anything. So these projects have been delayed for some time now. But that will change today. Thinking about going out to Home Depot and get my things for these projects. I'll try to post some pics of the truck.
    This forum seem to be very helpful and you can almost find anything regarding about the tacoma. I really like it.
    I already started searching the site for some info about car parts, accesories, etc... The car didn't have side step rails so that's the first parts I'm going to buy and then there's a whole list of items after that...

    To start, woke up 5 am this morning and start to search for side steps on craigslist and found them from a local guy here in houston. Too early to call him right now. But that's first mod I will do if that's considered to be a mod. Then maybe all chrome grill...

    Nice truck!

    Now change that hood protector out for a decent one without the clips. Those clips are brutal on the paint.

    Yeah, I bought it the same day I saw on craigslist. The dealer wouldn't budge about lowering the price. In fact, there was someone else also interested in buying as well. So I had to put down the payment and got the truck. Love it. SOLD my acura TL Type S for this truck. No regret.
