    Hello TW members... Just got my red 2005 double cab V6 Tacoma with 79k miles two days ago. It's got the SR5 package. I am loving this truck so far, and I plan to keep it for a long, long time.

    I immediately swapped the ugly, rusted bullet hole rims and bare a/ts for my 2003 4Runner's stock powder coated wheels with aggressive 33" m/ts. It has a 2.5" spacer lift and fits the 33"s nicely.

    I have been looking for a taco that would both fit into my price range and keep the features that I desired. Finally found one with nice upgrades, a manual transmission, full four doors, short bed, 4x4, and a V6.

    I can't wait to put a cat-back exhaust system on, as well as a dvd head unit, and a black tool box. I am also planning on adding black side steps, and maybe even a cargo carrier on the roof. I am going to take the chrome badges off and paint them black soon. I am going to use Night shade on the tail lights to give them a smoked, not pitch black, effect. I'm currently searching for a red shift knob and matching boot too. As you all can probably tell.. I am utterly stoked to have found this beauty!

    Thanks for all the welcomes guys. I actually joined the site a while back, but I figured there was no point in it (besides reading and searching) until I had a tacoma of my own.
