    Hello All,

    I've had my 2012 DCSB Tacoma TRD Sport now for just two weeks and I am thinking of a few mods/changes/accessories I would like to make to the truck in the next few months. Here they are in no particular order:

    Any thoughts/suggestions?

    Congrats on your new truck :D
    Looks like your on the right track with your mods. New tires for sure, especially if you drive in snow. Personally, as far as the air filter, the stock filter does the best job. Others will disagree / agree. You plan on off roading your taco at all?

    I don't plan on off roading too much, maybe for camping sometimes and once and awhile I need to go down some sketchy dirt roads for work.

    Welcome to TW and thanks for perpetuating the 'Canada means winter' stereotype. :D

    It became a stereotype because it's true. :) I was at Lake Louise in July once and it snowed a foot and a half. To be fair to you snow-backs, it was after dark when it snowed and the next day it warmed up to t-shirt weather and melted it all.

    That's what is so awesome about Vancouver. The snow typically stays where it belongs, in the mountains. And that's only 1/2 hr away.

    What I want to know is how you get internet and tacomaworld.com in your igloo? And where do you get the time between clubbing seals and fighting off polar bears?

    First one down, just ordered some Husky floor liners. Now debating new tires, worried about how the OEM tires will handle this winter.
