    hey everybody,

    i bought my new tacoma in december '11 but i haven't had a chance to get on here due to operational commitments to my ship. it's great to find out there are many many enthusiasts out there such as myself. i would like to start personalizing my truck i.e. removing "TRD" stickers and factory markings and other things like that. if ANYONE has ANY advice or suggestions about customization or performance or anything feel free to PM me. THANKS!! :D

    I'd say to get a new exhaust, cold air intake for start out with. They really make a difference!

    There's TONS of difference speakers, amps, and subs you can get for your truck.

    Let the fun begin!

    My 2010 TRD OffRoad was also my first brand new vehicle. Absolutely love it!! Am slowly warming up to the idea of doing some mods now that the "new" is wearing off a little. Will be looking for some ideas...keep us posted.

    2012 tacoma fully stock looking to upgrade
    i appreciate all of the insight, recently i de-stickered her, next step is to de-badge her. but i haven't decided if i want to completely de-badge her or to take them all off except the door badges. also, i am looking to add a third brake light cover with the theme of my fav. college team.
