    April 2013: Installed first stereo system (Pioneer single-DIN head unit and Pioneer component speaker system; Cost me only $240 for whole system, but sounded better than factory Bose system in my friend's $75K Audi!).

    October 2013: Installed Platinum Apex 16" wheels.

    March 2015: Rear-ended by a texting driver.

    October 2015: Hit by a drunk driver.

    September 2016: Neighbor helped install touch-screen head unit and backup camera, which were paid for with restitution money from drunk driver!

    December 2016 or January 2017:
    Finally added intermittent wipers!

    May 2017: @HomerTaco installed my new Toywerx grille!

    May 2017: The Sony touch-screen head unit ended up being defective, so Crutchfield exchanged it for THIS UNIT, which after less than a year I don't like due to the lack of built-in iPod control. I have already bought a replacement head unit (Another Pioneer with not only built-in iPod control but Apple CarPlay!) and my neighbor will be helping me install it this Friday.

    June 2017: A/C recharged for very first time!

    July 2017: Installed WeatherTech rain-guards.

    August 2017: Entered in "Stock Import" class at 2017 Carlisle Truck Nationals; Won third place!

    October 2017:
    Installed @Ellis Precision billet gearshift knob.

    March 2017: Installed another head unit!

    April 2018: Installed Rockford Fosgate amplifier and Kicker powered subwoofer!

    May 2018: Installed WeatherTech bug deflector!

    July 5th, 2018: Side windows and rear slider professionally tinted

    August 2018: Source of A/C leak discovered; Evaporator core and expansion valve replaced at a cost of almost $1,600!

    September 2018: Wet Okole seat covers

    Future Plans: Trailer hitch, fog lights...

    There is one scratch on the painted part of the grille that I believe can be buffed out. It is safe to do this like I would on any other part of the truck, correct?

    Okay good. Still can't believe it only cost $15 more than a Toyota OEM grill!

    In less than a year, I've given my truck a complete WeatherTech deflector package and a complete stereo system overhaul!

    As of right now, my plans include billet pedals and a trailer hitch.

    I will also be posting pics from all the various (mis)adventures I have with my Tacoma from here on out. My "Aspergers" thread will be exclusively for the discussion of past, present, and future experiences as a young adult with AS, among other things...
