    just bought on October 25th 2018 a new to me 2016 Toyota Tacoma TRD Offroad 4door double cab 6spd auto... inferno orange. already I am looking into mods for it.. probably some more aggressive tires.. it came with some Yokohama Geolandars, which are different than the stock tires.. thinking lights, and some sort of tonneau cover are first up on my list. torn between, and tri fold soft cover, or a roll up... only a few issues with it so far, one is kind of minor is getting in or out of the truck, the steering wheel is too low, even at the highest tilt, and furthest out telescope setting (I'm 6'2") I'm Fairly mechanically oriented, and I'm sure I can find a solution/modification to the column stops, the seat mounts, or a combination of the two.. truck will be going back to the dealer to ensure the new ECU programming has been done, and the ATF is FULL.. also will raise concerns about the howling at highway speeds (lower front control arms).

    Ah the "Dirty lew" I know it well... not so much the area, but spent a lot of time in CMMC. for work... should do a trail ride if you know of any that my stock can handle.. most of the trails I know around me just arent what i would take my DD down... at least not until I get a wrap done..

    got a tonneau cover for it... Amazon had this one and I took a gamble on it.. so far pretty good.. anodized side rails, came in 3 pieces, and seems to seal really well, other than the obvious truck manufacturer included leak points.. $189 shipped I couldnt go wrong..

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01M0L5IVL/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    it has good seals on the sides, and the rear tailgate seal seems to work great, came with the aluminum T-clamps to slide into the tiedown rails.. seeing a common theme with the bed rail system being used for almost every accessory available for this truck...

    I’d like to find more members on here that live in Maine that would want to do a trail ride. Not much here besides sand pits.

    Yeah, I work in the Lew and live out of town. Couldn't pay me to live in this place.

    If we organized a Maine trail ride, they'd have to be wide trails for me, since I'm Tacoma-less these days. :laugh:
