    My name is Dennis and I’m in north East Pennsylvania.

    I have been wanting a taco for some time now and I would go look but never pulled the trigger! Leave it to my wife.. she totally surprised me with the truth been wanting. Came home from work to it sitting in the driveway

    2020 Tacoma trd sport, loving this thing! I’ve owned it not even a week and I’ve started the mods ‍♂️

    So far I’ve added the blacked out emblems and the letters insert for the tailgate. I’m waiting on LED bulbs for the headlights/fog lights. Also waiting on a TRD pro grill, not OEM, got it off Amazon I think it’s MC auto parts.

    here is a pic! Let me know what other simple mods I can do. I’d love to maybe level it next, start to make room for bigger

    Welcome aboard!

    Highly recommend these too, I got a set for glovebox and center console. I think there is a forum associated vendor that makes them in the USA.

    Nice Taco. I'm in the same boat in the greater Chicagoland area.

    I did the tailgate inserts, ordered the above mentioned console plus a glove box organizer, window guards and a stone/bug deflector.
    I just ordered a diamondback tonneau and going to rock at least a front aluminum skid plate (keep it clean with winter coming up).


    I keep eying up Hiline 4x4 bumper, rear bumper, leveling lift, and like everyone lights!

    I hope your truck passed the inspection, your inspector in that first picture is really being thorough.

    Congrats on a Smart purchase! Best truck on the road!

    At 73yo, I’m on my 4th Tacoma in my life time and...... the only problem I’ve ever had is that I have to change the oil from time to time :thumbsup::amen::bananadance::drunk:
