    Greetings everyone!

    After my wife and I purchased a home a few months ago, it quickly became apparent that - while I LOVED my Ford Mustang - my car just wasn't going to be utilitarian enough for the multiple projects I wanted to do around the house.

    The Tacoma was the first truck to come to mind and I started my search.

    Yesterday, I finally picked one up. I'm now part of the Tacoma world with a 2010 Double Cab TRD Offroad PreRunner (Silver Streak Mica, btw).

    Coming from the Mustang world, the modding bug is not new to me...but I didn't think it would bite so soon. I've been lurking on the forums here since I started thinking about the truck so I've already got many ideas. As you all know, however, the size of the wishlist is much larger than the size of the wallet. All in time.

    A little about me: I'm an elementary school teacher (1st grade specifically) and I also own a portrait photography business. I'm not new to forums as I was a large contributing member at the BlackMustangClub forums. I like to put my photography and Photoshop skills to use for members doing photochops and sigs and the like. I look forward to lending a helping hand in this area around here as well!

    This thread has been long enough, so thanks for reading! I look forward to getting to know all of you in the coming months.

    Jake

    ...btw...truck is in the sig!

    Welcome and nice truck. You can help photoshop a good deal here. I had a 85 mustang ( last year of the 4 barrel carb ) and loved it so i know where you are coming from.

    Quick Question...

    I bought this truck as a Toyota Certified Pre-owned truck....does that mean that the dealership has already dealt with any active TSB's on my truck, or will I need to take the truck in to have it "fixed."

    Thanks for the answer to a noobish question...
