    Hey everybody, I have actually be posting alittle already on the forums so you might have seen me around but I have not really introduced myself. I have always wanted a Tacoma since I saw one when I was little, since then I have never really had a use to go out and buy one but now that I have a big dog I used that as my excuse to go out and get one. The Tacoma is more or less a weekend vehicle as I work 40miles away its not the best vehicle to use daily now-a-days.. so instead I have a 1990 Mazda Miata that I use daily.. The specs on the truck as as follows..

    2006 Speedway Blue
    TRD Off road
    Tow Package
    4x4
    Double Cab AT

    I love the truck and everything about it.. the hardest part I've had with this truck so far is where to start modding..
    Tint? Stereo? Exhaust?!


    At any rate, I look forward to a lifetime of fun trucking!
