    None currently, but I would like a better sounding exhaust and perhaps a cold air pack and some color coded step bars
    Will be changing plugs this spring/summer. Has anyone used different plugs other than stock Toyota plugs? If so what kind and is there any warranty issuses? Thanks

    I think a majority of the people here just stick with the ones you pick up at the Toyota dealership. Thats what i did and its running great. Maybe someone that has used different plugs can chime in.

    I used the stock plugs at $8/ea (they don't call it the stealership for nothing). I'm pretty sure others have used different plugs, just be sure to use the correct type (temp) and gap them correctly.

    $8 each? Did they give you platinum?

    They're $3.99 at my local dealer but I'm in a metro area with lots of other dealers around.

    Rock Auto has them for $2.7X something plus shipping. Hopefully they can save you some money next time.

    Damn... I called 2 dealers and got the same price so I just went with it. I knew it was overpriced but just chaulked it up to dealership BS mark-up. I'll do some more shopping next time...
