    Bed Extender, TRD Cold Air Intake
    Great little truck. I like the TRD cold air intake I installed, as it will be used at 9000 feet and above a good bit. Nice combination with the Cat Back exhaust. The only other things I have done so far is add a Toyota Bed extender, Toyota bed mat, and turned those God awful white letters around so as to show the blackwall against those good looking bead lock rims!

    The only thing I am disappointed in is the lack of electronic sophistication. My 2009 Jeep Wrangler has more sophistication! NO trip computer, NO Homelink, it really is kind of odd. I cannot even check my range, fuel economy, etc. and I have EVERY available option.

    I guess I will do the homelink install as is ilustrated on your excellent owner's forum, and add one of the two aftermarket trip computers!

    Thanks for your help, and for having a good forum!

    i think he's referring to a Range display, MPG, consumption, etc.
    not the simple trip odo.

    yes Tacoma is as cheap as they come imo inside, from the electronics, to the door lock mechanism, everything is simple and cheap. good for reliability and low cost of repairing, but bad for features, value (overpriced big time)...etc. if it weren't for the mechanical side of things, that's only thing that has going for it really. because the sound of closing paper thin sheetmetal doors sure aren't it lol.

    bead lock looking rims?

    good lucking trucks for sure, but i'm not a fan of the beadlock look.
