    Hey Guys,

    First off I just want to thank everyone here for the wealth of information that I have learned so far and I have you guys to thank for picking out a great Tacoma.

    So my 95 Grand Cherokee Limited was starting to get a little old and, as much as I loved it and hate to say it, it was getting time to sell it. Being out of college and working for a year now I was able to save up enough money to buy a vehicle. I was also lucky enough to sell the Jeep a couple weeks later.

    When I finally came around to buying a vehicle, I knew I wanted a Tacoma (with 4x4 of course, I guess being from Minnesota and living in ND for 4 years seals the deal on always owning a 4x4). I needed a truck and only wanted the best :cool:

    I got very lucky and found a good deal on a Tacoma that already had some of the base mods that I would want to do (5100s, Tonneau Cover, Tint). After I saw it the first time I new I would end up with it, but had to wait a month since the guy wanted to wait to sell it so he could use it to move. That was a long month.

    So I finally picked it up back in July. I have been reading the forums just about everyday since I started researching and I figured it was about time I posted.

    I'm looking forward to learn from and hopefully contribute to TW.

    So here is my new baby a 2008 Double Cab Long Bed TRD Sport Tacoma:

    Current Mods (most were existing when I bought it):
    Bilstein 5100s @ 1.75"
    1.5" AAL
    Soft Tonneau Cover
    AFE Pro Dry S Air Filter
    ~35% Tint up front
    Limo Tint in back
    Black Ballistic Wizard 810 20x9 Rims
    285/50R20 Cooper Zeon LTZ

    Coming Soon:
