    Welcome!
    I see you have a DC (double cab). Is it a base, SR5, Sport TRD or Off Road TRD 4WD?

    Fun is in store for you!

    No pics yet of my truck. Let's see if I get this right; She is a long bed, double cab, 4X4, SR5 package, 4.0 L V6 with a six speed auto, tow package, grey cloth interior, exterior is Magnetic Grey Metalic.

    First tank of gas combined city/highway was 18 MPG. My last tank was 19.1MPG.

    Mods looking for in the near future (or long term depending on what kind of mood the Boss is in):

    *Tires and wheels: I know I want the Les Schwab Open Country mud tires but don't yet know what size or which wheels. (Boss pre-approved :)). I can't make my truck too high or it won't fit in the parking garage at work (6'7" clear- the radio antena already hits!)
    *Side steps- chrome (Boss pre-approved :))
    *Maybe a front chrome push bar with Pia lights
    *Sun roof- if I can talk the boss into a $1,400 bill :confused:

    Did you say Horse power?

    Update: my 2011 now has 85,000 miles on it! Only issue was to have the dealer fix the "birdie in a cage" noise from the HVAC fan.

    I know that I'm quoting myself but since I've been on TW I've learned a few things and my mod plans have changed (and are more expensive...LOL)

    Tire and wheels: got 72k out of my stock Dunlops. Put on 265x70x17 Goodyear Duratacks on Vision Warriors wheels. Even though I went up in size there is no rubbing, even at full lock. Impressive.

    Planning on lift via 5100s set to 2"

    No chrome push bar. I have an order in with Craig over at HomerTaco for the Raptor style mesh- all four pieces. Getting excited to install this.

    When my mesh is done, going to mount two off road lights behind the grille- possibly a BAMF light bar or fab myself

    No side steps. Thinking of sliders but not sure yet.

    The longer I stay on TW the more I spend!!
