    Good evening fellow gearheads. A buddy of mine (2K4Taco) invited me to a meetup here in the Jacksonville area where I met a few other Taco owners. Even though I was the only non-Silver Taco owner I had a great time and shared some great ideas/tips. I have read countless posts on this forum in regards to Tacomas and it was only a matter of time before I joined.

    I have had my Tacoma since June of 2012 and since then installed a 3" ProComp Add-a-leaf, Volant Air Box, and tires. I do most of the maintenance and servicing myself and all the aftermarket stuff (if I can't do it then I am not buying it).

    I am engaged, currently serve in the Navy like many in this area, and grew up in The South.

    I hope we can do more meetups and maybe a few trips to some nice trails or major events like 4WheelParts Jamboree. Anyway, here's a pic of my Taco hiding behind a tree:

    THX, What do you think of the TX was it worth the extra cash if you are planning on doing the upgrades anyways

    There's usually a couple throughout the year. Ton's of great pics of them. Sadly I've never been able to make it to a large TW meet, but I've been to a few Hooters events and off road with TW guys before .


    I'd like to get a off road trip going sometime during early spring. I now can get a few paid vacation days at work, I'd like to use them to go wheeling with TW.
