    Just wanted to introduce ourselves.

    Proud owner of a 2014 Tacoma, V6, 5 speed Automatic Transmission - Double Cab, SR5 with TSS sport package in blue ribbon metallic, SMC Inner Bed liner with Deck Rail System. Love the Class IV (6,500) tow package, coupled with the engine/transmission cooling systems. Had the driver & passenger windows tinted. The rest of them were already that way (smoked glass).

    On order:

    • Weathertech floor liner/mats
    • slybracket no-drill front license plate holder
    • 2" ball-mount with a 2" drop for small ATV trailer

    The second picture is a different color, it was Toyota's color blue around the 2010 time-frame. The first picture I posted of our taco is the current 2014 Toyota's' color blue named blue ribbon. I like it alot with the almost purple hue it has.

    I know I know - that sounded like I was dissing your color. LOVE your color, but the RaceWay blue looked different from the ugly blue I was thinking of.

    I happen to think they look great .. plus they aren't the basic plain stock wheels as in the speedway blue truck posted above within this post.

    Glad you approve Sean (big grin).

    Looking Good Brother and Welcome

    I have the "blue in the middle" - Nautical Blue..used in 12 & 13. I prefer your Blue Ribbon. Mine has a purple tint in certain light....but overall I love it. And I like the stock Texas edition rims...probably the best looking stock rim on ANY truck.

    License plates arrived today and both my son and I rushed to install them using the no-drill license plate bracket from www.slybrackets.com

    For someone who is not mechanically inclined, the photos on the website coupled with the printed instructions which accompanied the brackets, were enough for this old guy to install them literally in 2 minutes. As advertised, it's sturdy and solid!

    Excellent job and cudos to www.slybrackets.com for such a fine product.
