    My first car in 2010 was a 2003 Civic Ex. I loved that car, it was a manual with a moon-roof. I purchased it without knowing how to drive stick and my friend had to teach me in a parking lot the same day. I had it for 4 years before parting ways. Next I got a 2014 Civic Lx in 2015, and I hated everything about it. I hated the way it looked outside AND inside, hated that it didn't have a moon-roof. I was in a pinch and needed a car asap. The only thing I didn't hate was that it was paid off. I had the second civic for 5 years. I got into mountain biking and realized I needed more space (because a bike rack wouldn't work :rolleyes:). After looking at a Wrangler (basically a off road civic in terms of internal/external space) and a 4runner (larger outback) I decided on a truck. Realizing a full size was too much truck for my purposes (and I'd only go with diesel), I settled on midsize...and well Tacoma's are the only option there.

    The trade in - 2014 Honda Civic Lx
    Going to have to swap covered parking spots for the truck. The golf course sprinkler shoots water from beyond the walkway over the fence and covers the side of my car with hard water. Horrible water spots

    Got my Huskey X-act Liners in on 8/2 along with the Vehicle OCD Glove Box Organizer.

    The mats are very nice, they should hold up well. Wish they were a little higher right next to the gas peddle, but it should be fine.

    Got the AVS Low Profile Black Rain Guards in on 10/7. I opened them up and they were all scratched and gouged up (surprise!). Immediately dropped them off at the UPS store and headed over the the local Toyota dealer and grabbed the weather tech version for $98 + tax. Took 10 minutes to install

    Having a little issue with the front passenger window not wanting to close automatically, hopefully in the next few days that resolves itself.

    Owning a tacoma and coming here takes the "possible" out of the equation.
    Tacomaworld + truck = money pit.

    Definitely a money pit right now... I think once I get the bed mat, tailgate lock, tint, and door stills in I'm done until the Meso things go back in stock. After those 3 get ordered I'm just going to drive it before anything else

    Got the "TACOMA" inserts on today. Left them outside in the sun for a little while to warm up (90 out), cleaned up the lettering area with some 70% rubbing alcohol and they went on without any trouble.

    I thought about it. But I specifically wanted leather seats to enjoy them, not cover them up like people do with plastic on couches. I usually park in the shade and have a covered spot where I live. I'll use a good leather conditioner and sunshade for the windshield

    Dropped in the bed mat today, thinking about securing it using one/two of the drainage holes. It wont stop a committed theif, but it will stop one who is looking to just lift it and place in their tacoma.

    Got my windows tinted at XPEL, since I may be moving in the future to a state with more restrictive tint laws, I decided to go 35% all around. That is the common % accepted front & back that would work in any of the states I'd move to. I also tinted the moonroof at 55%

    Installed the G-Tek Fab door still protectors installed. Cleaned with goo-gone and an alcohol/water mixture. The fronts looks great! The back door still protectors couldn't get as close to the front of the frame because it curves up and the whole product would not lay flat, also it doesn't get as close to the weather sealing as the fronts.

    Popped off the side view mirror covers yesterday to install the new turn signals, pretty easy and quick to do. Not sure what I'm going to do with the old ones...

    I also threw on the gasshole insert, the fit is a little tight so I may sand the hole a very little so there is less resistance

    For the turn signals, Some people try to sell them for a few bucks. Some keep them for when the trade in or resell truck, swap them out and sell the upgraded ones.

    Please edit your title.

    Possible Money Pit is unrealistic and just silly.

    Guaranteed Money Pit is how it should read.
