    My name is Ryan. I been stalking this site for a while but never registered because my computer was down and its so difficult to browse these forums with a phone. Well anyways, I'm not new to the car game, but I am new to the truck game. I was really into imports for about 8 years, but then I had my son, and I needed something a little more practical. I have always been a fan of Tacomas so I decided to get one. I like the 2nd gen Tacomas but they just werent in my budget, and I kinda like the simplicity of the 1st gen.

    Heres what I had last year:

    I sold it and got this:

    2004 Tacoma crew cab Certified pre owned 47k miles pre runner V6

    [​IMG]

    Tinted the tindows

    [​IMG]

    Pioneer deck and alpine speakers

    [​IMG]

    Hids and led running lights

    [​IMG]

    smaller antenna

    [​IMG]

    thrush welded muffler with 2 1/2" piping and polished 8" tip


    Also got a K&N drop in filter and waiting for the LED roof bulbs. Just snagged some OEM floor mats at the swap meet for $15 haha don't hate! they're clean!

    Goals: I really wanted to put a small lift on it with some nice rims and tires but there just isn't any money left after the house payment and the kid. Maybe next year tax return haha

    What paint do you use to paint rims? Maybe powder coat? I hate seeing stock rims painted and then after a few months there's chips and chunks peeling, revealing the factory color. Anyone care to post picks of these same wheels painted for me? Sorry if there's a forum for this already
