    Hey everyone!

    I've been a Tacoma owner since '07 when I bought mine new. Loved the truck to death and had big plans of customization. Long story short. It fell by the way side. Between a 70 hour work week and an affinity for beer, I had no spare time. After about a year of ownership, I ended up using the truck for work (Fish Industry). Always kept it in good mechanical shape, but have had my fair share of cosmetic mishaps.

    That was until a few weeks ago! I started getting the ideas of upgrades again. Then I came across this forum. It's given me the motivation to finally get things done.

    Not the most mechanically inclined when it comes to cars, but I learned how to work on various machines by tearing them apart and putting them back together. Baptism by fire.

    My first question. Before I get into cosmetic upgrades. What are the best performance options? Lift kit? Should I do anything to my engine? Feel free to explain it to me like a child. I won't take it as condescending haha.

    Anyways, this looks like a great community and i'm excited to be a part of it!

    P.S. Would be great to hear from some local people (Souther Maine, New Hampshire, Mass) about shops and parts.
