    I thought this would be something cool to start, hopefully it catches on. Pretty simple idea here, yea alot of us have a grill, lift, tires, wheels, black badges or no badges, blacked out headlights ect... but what have YOU done to your truck that no one else has. Did you make it? Buy it? Find it? Steal it? Win it? provide some details. Ill start...

    Mine would have to be my spare tire carrier, had it custom built, no one else has one like it. Simple design, mounts to the 2 front bed bolts, and when the tire is installed it the bottom of the tire rests perfectly on the bed so during rough driving it doesnt have room to bounce around and rip the bed bolts out. :D

    ...how about a floor-hinged go pedal from a '67 Buick? -or the mount position of that scanner?

    ..or the one-sided swept duallies exiting behind the leafspring mount and tucked up close to the body?

    Come to think of it, my parents' Infinity has a pedal that hinges from the floor instead of hangs. You might have the only Tacoma out there with such a thing!:D
