    Went out and drop some change on a 2003 Tacoma today. Its got a V6 5speed Extra cab Sr-5 TRD package in Silver-mist. Its all stock excpet for a front bug sheild and the AVS window thingers. Got 84k on the clock. Got it for 14.5. 500 dollers less what the dealer was asking plus the 90k service. I'm pretty happy with that.

    Not really sure what I want to do with it really as mods go. Probably a K&N Cold Air, Magnaflow Exhaust, 4 channel amp and new speakers all around.

    Hopefully picking her up Tuesday.

    Had some questions I was hoping you guys could answer. Yeah I tried searching.

    I'm buying DDM Hids for sure, what Kalvin to you guys suggest? 6000 or 5000? 35 Watt or 55 watt?

    I had 6000k 55 Watts on my Accord and I loved them. However I dunno if 55 Watt blind the crap out of oncoming traffic since the Tacoma will sit up a lot higher?

    Also I was looking at doing the parking light mod, what kind of bulbs are you guys putting into those? Hid bulb or just something simple form autozone Napa etc? Also what kind of light out put will I gain from using the parking lights as fog lights?

    I found a couple pictures but nothing that was really what I was looking for.

    Thanks for your help.

    Drove the Taco home today. I like it so far. Getting a Pioneer CD player for it sometime later this week that some chick is selling on craigslist. Already ordered some DDM tuning 5000K H4 Hi/Lo Bulbs.
    Probably going to save up for 6x8 speakers, Rhino Lining, tool box, Magnaflow exhaust, K&N Cold Air.
    Might do the foglight mod but I was hoping someone could post pictures off the light out put from just the fog lights.
