    Just thought I'd stop and say hi. I've been monitoring this site for some time now and I finally registered. After many sleepless nights, I finally decided to trade-in my '03 Dakota double cab w/ 5.9L and 4x4 for a '11 Tacoma TRD sport double cab 4x4 in Super White. My Dodge had been customized to my liking and getting used to the Tacoma will take some time. So far I've removed all badges and stickers, shortened the antenna by half and I had the windows tinted yesterday. I had the back slider window done in 15% and the front sides in 20% I've got a baby on the way so I can't do everything at once, but hear are my plans for the truck: 2.5" spacers up front and 1.25" blocks in the rear. TRD CAI and some form of a cat back exhaust sytem (manufacturer unknown at this time) Fog light and lighted 4x4 switch mods. Heated mirrors and the addition of an oil pressure gauge and volt meter. Hard-wired garage door opener and cargo lamp. Aftermarket wheels and tires. I own a boat and brakes are real important. My Dakota had rear discs and stopped well while towing the boat. The tacoma has rear drums and it doesn't stop the same. I found a rear disc brake conversion and I plan on installing that here in my shop. I'll post pics of the truck soon. Have a great holiday weekend.

    Finally managed to take some pics of the truck while at Castaic yesterday. Here she is with my boat attached. I'm amazed at the power of the 4.0L engine. Has much more pulling power than my '03 Dakota 5.9L
