    Hey y'all! My name is James, I am from San Luis Obispo, currently living in Berkeley, CA where I attend UC Berkeley as a senior majoring in Environmental Economics and Policy. I have had my Tacoma for over two years now and I absolutely love it. It is a 2005 TRD Sport 4x4 6-SPD manual. I have been aware of Tacoma World for a long time and frequently read up on threads during my spare time, and as of today I got bored and decided to join!

    My current mods are:
    6" Pro-comp lift with w/skid plate
    17" Moto-metal Rims
    35" General Grabber Tires
    TRD Shifter knob
    Blacked out badges
    Weathertech floor mats
    Red/Black Coverking seat covers
    Mangnaflow exhaust
    Alpine Deck
    Painted engine cover

    Future mods:
    Fox-shox all around (Lowering to 3 inch lift with 33" tires) (DEBATING)
    Satoshi grill
    possible rear locker? (ALSO DEBATING)
    ARB front and back armor bumpers with winch
    TRD cold air intake and headers
    Different fog/headlights

    As for now she is my daily driver and does everything I need her to do! That's all for now, PLEASE let me know if you have any input, comments, or anything, especially when it comes to any experience switching from 6 inch lift to a 3 inch, as I am currently debating in doing so.

    Welcome! If your looking at going to a 3" mid-travel kit (I say thats upgrading), go to down-south motorsports and they have a build your own mid travel kit and it has everything you need. Helped me decide that soon I will be upgrading to a mid-travel 3" lift/
