    I been a member for a little over a week now. Reading through all the threads and deciding what I wanted. Finally went through with it and bought a 2013 Tacoma SR5 in Magnetic Gray Metallic this morning. So far I love it. Rides smooth and I love everything about it. I came from driving a 2002 Ranger and it's a huge difference. Having a back seat was a must for me and I already love it.

    Suggestions on the first few mods I should do to it? Easy stuff first as I slowly learn more and more with the information provided on here.

    Thanks and I can't wait to get started with the mods.

    They move on the paint while driving. Rubbing paint off. Grab a hold of one and gently move it towards the front wheel well it probably already wore the paint a little. No sarcasm but a proven point

    Thanks for the suggestions and references guys. The first thing I know I have to do is get rid of these wheels. I'm looking for some local TRD wheels for a good price. Any ideas of what I should pay for a set?

    Thanks
