    I know, useless post, but I'm highly excited and just want to tell everyone. Picking up a 2013 Pyrite Mica, TRD Offroad DCSB w/ tow pkg tomorrow. Can't wait to spend all of my disposable income on it for the foreseeable future.

    What are good immediate purchases?
    I am already planning on window tint and floor mats ASAP. Planning on new wheels/tires once I save enough. Also interested in sliders and a roof rack.

    Useless post, I know, just needed to vent my excitement :)

    EDIT: Any recommendations for painting the rear bumper/front grille? Definitely want them color matched eventually. Thanks.

    Congrats and welcome. Up at the top of the website there is a link for mods and tutorials. When I first came here I looked there and started a list in a note book for some of my most want to do mods.

    Some of the easier and cheaper mods I first did were:
    - upgrade interior bulbs to LED
    - fog light mod, anytime fog lights
    - rear view camera mod, can come on anytime
    - extended rear diff breather mod (toyota part #'s 90930-03136 & 90404-51319)
    - remove charcole air filter in air box
    - turn off seatbelt alarm
    - turn off alarm beep
    - relocate 7-pin into rear bumper
    - tailgate theft protector (stainless hose clamp)
    - changed washer fluid out to Rain-X orange

    Congrats on the new truck and welcome to TW.

    As for immediate purchase, Weathertech Digital Fit Floor Liners are a must if you value your carpet. Then Seat Covers, Wet Okole if you can afford them. After that its all about preference and intended use.

    I have had a Truxedo LoPro Tonneau cover for about three years now, still going strong.

    And if you want to spend all of your remaining time and money, Click Here for a list of about 108 ways to do that.
