    Hey this is my first toyota let alone first truck!
    I've had
    93 rx7
    2002 S2000
    2007 acura tl type s
    2007 STI

    I just recently traded the STI for this truck. I needed something more practical and wanted 4x4 for the snow.

    Im excited to be a new owner and learn what this truck has to offer!

    In the future i plan for the trd supercharger to keep it within the warranty and do basic TRD mods.

    Sorry for the crap photos. The sti was really forgiving in the snow, i think ill have to change my habits in the truck.
    I do want to get a winter set of wheels and snow tires.
    Only thing i did so far was order some all weather mats and door sill protectors.

    None i swapped trunks for a wingless =) and saved about 40 lbs lol. So if anything i gained! lol. But i did swap back to a sti wing for the trade in.

    edit...
    Did you mean the roof vane?? If so then a bajillions! ya i guess keeping the roof vane to direct air towards a wingless trunk was pointless, but i didnt want to take it off

    hahah it was a joke =)
    it was actually funny how many people did double takes as i drove by.... but the joke quickly turned into a headache when i spent the next day buffing out the scratches it did to my clear coat when i drove on the hwy.
