    Hi Everyone,

    I recently, well 2 weeks ago, bought my first Toyota. I sold my 2002 GMC 2500HD ext cab, and now am driving a black double cab Taco TRD off-road pkg, 6sp manual.
    Needed more space for the kids and less gas consumption.

    LEER cap is coming and I will post pictures then.

    I have some modifications in mind (supercharger is on order, Toyota is saying the new flash for the 2012 model will be available May 29th) and then this goes in with a TRD exhaust and short shifter (although it seems like the shifter is pretty short already) does anyone want to comment on how the throw changes with the short shifter?

    After that i am looking at bumpers front and back, maybe suspension travel, maybe some armor.

    I have driven about 1000miles so far and like the ride. I had Rancho 9000 my ride suspension on the GMC so this is a bit bouncier.

    Other car is a Volvo V70R, 6sp. (member of Swedespeed forum and vortex (big Audi S4 fan).

    Anyhow, here I am, already learned a lot by surfing various threads, although it seems like some things have changed in the 2012 model. for example the turn off the seatbelt beep sequence does NOT work for me)

    Best and see y'all around
    Niko

    Everyone for welcoming me.
