    92k miles and garaged. There is a great deal on a TRD LSD...is it any good? I had an AFE cold air intake on my jeep...do they work well on Tacomas?

    TIA

    Looks great! I have the same exact truck in red with a few more miles on it. I'm sure you'll love it.

    I just had to do this also. I used a paint made by Bondo called Bumper Black that worked well. It's a little bit of a flat color, but I like it. It worked well.

    Deck Plate Mod complete. I read somewhere that it is good to remove the efi fuse to correct the shift pattern?
