    This truck is my DD and my obsession. Original mods were done while in school on a budget. Now, after a few years of getting debt free and thinking about a direction, I've got a dream.

    Background
    Started out on this forum in 2008 with a 2002 PreRunner. Sold it in 2010 and bought a BMW 325xi. Wanted the AWD and compact size, but now came back to the good 'ol trusty Tacoma early 2013.

    2008 Super White PreRunner Double Cab, TRD Rugged Trail Edition.

    The goal is to have an expedition capable DD with an emphasis on simplicity and reliability. I have dreams of one day converting to 4x4 and SAS once a new DD is bought. I'm not into rock crawling..yet.. but find myself on back roads and trails of California frequently with my wife and family.
