    Hey everyone.

    My name is Nick, from the Cincinnati area. I bought my truck from Kings Toyota in February after the transmission in my 04 RX8 Grenaded for the last time. Admittedly I've been lurking for quite some time.

    It's a 2005 AccessCab with the TRD Sport Package, SR5, blah blah blah in Silver Streak Metallic.

    As of now it's got about 173k miles on it, I bought it with just over 150k :eek:

    So far, I've wrenched on it quite a bit, Here's what's been repaired/modded since I bought it.

    DDM HID's, H4 Hi/Low Kit 55 Watt, 5000k

    DDM Kit in 35 Watt 3000k for the fogs as well

    Redid the front brakes only to discover a few weeks later I had a stuck piston in the front passenger caliper, so again, replaced the pads and that caliper.

    Replaced the water pump... :rolleyes:

    Bought myself a 40$ CAI setup off of ebay, honestly for the money spent, and my intake temps, and that amazing noise...I feel like I made out like a bandit on that.

    Added my Pioneer DEH-8400BH Headunit from the RX8, replaced all speakers with infinity references that were in my room mates 350z(rip)

    Plastidipped the front cross bar thing on the front bumper, I was satisfied with the look until I got hit, it was all scratched off :l

    Cut out the secondary catalytic converters and welded in a straight piece of pipe, also cut out the OEM Muffler and replaced it with a Thrush Welded :D

    ....All in all, I'd guess you could say "Ballin' on a budget."

    I look forward to getting to know some of the locals, if there are any haha.

    Overall I love my truck, it's been the most reliable vehicle I've ever had. It doesn't flood, it doesn't go through an engine every 100k, along with a transmission, set wiring harnesses aflame. It's great!

    Here's a few shitty pictures.

    My room mate and I just plastidipped quite a few parts on his 06 Cooper S. Including interior bits. Gotta say I love the stuff.

    Everything you see that's black minus the fender flares used to be white.

    Turned out pretty damned good if I do say so myself. Yes, that's me in the car haha.
