    Sup guys and gals. Bought a 09 DC 4x4 TRD sport. I'm loving the Gray Metallic color. We decided on this truck because it was roomy and big enough for road trips and so forth. I'm looking into doing a bit more exterior mods than anything. Maybe a couple of bolt ons depends on the significant other..lol

    Here are a couple of pics of the truck. Color matched side steps and bed cover.

    Really want to get 3m clear bra for the truck since itll be used for road trips.
    Bigger wheels and tires, although im not sure how big i can go with the stock suspension. i'd love to get some volks/rays.
    Skid plate and window visors.

    My taco will also be used for occaisonal towing. Towing a headache of a car..:mad:

    I'm also a member at CT and I'm learning more as i browse the forums.

    Thanks guys!! Looking at ive been researching and it looks like i cant put 18's with some meaty tires with my stock suspension. The lady and i are on the short side..lol so putting a lift kit may be questionable. Not sure how i can hide the lift kit form her.

    this forum is very welcoming. i like it. :D

    yeah it's a 2zz 6spd boosting 8lbs. its currently not running right hence its going on for repairs down to socal. the previous person who installed my stuff did a sh!tty job and unfortunately all went down hill from there. :mad:

    here's a couple more pics.
    interior (i like blue..lol)

    I'm going back to my old bumper since im selling the new one and its too low for my liking (scraping and not fun to drive at all). Going back to my old mirrors as well. I can't see diddly squat. Talk about non functional. Here's my old setup.

    Oh and this is what I upgraded from truck wise...:p
    91 Mazda b2200. exterior mods are dents, bondoed driver side panel, maaco paint job and faded front grill..lol all from the previous owner. engine mods; new plugs and k&n drop in filter :eek:

    before i sold it, i replaced both discs/ resurfaced drums, brake pads/shoes, wheel bearings, seafoamed the crap out of it, kyb shocks all around, new alternator, etc... needles to say, it was running in great condition for the new owner.

    Very nice. I like the gray too! Especially the dark side steps. Lucky! Did it come with the bed cover as well? Hmmm... I can't wait to see the 3m clear bra. I've always wanted one.
