    AWorthyOpponent’s “Ta-Co-Ma” Build

    Figured I would start one of these threads and use it as a record of my truck. I initially bought a 2011 TRD Off Road, but got frustrated with some of the issues I was having. On an impulse, I traded it for another Camry, as I have had them all my life. I had the Camry for about 2 months…and deeply missed the truck. It was actually depressing at times. Luckily, the dealer has some sympathy, and got me back into a Tacoma after 5000k miles in the Camry. I lost some money, yes, but only about $2,000 - $2,500.

    Model: 2013 Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport 4x4 Double Cab Long Bed.
    Purchase Date:
    10/15/2012
    Truck Name:
    Ta – Co – Ma (MUST pronounce with Jamaican accent…)

    Installed front and rear weathertech floor liners today. Not going to take pictures because they're already 1000 online.

    A couple of people were curious if the 2012 weathertech mats will fit into a 2013 Tacoma. I had no problem installing mine on my double cab.

    Nice truck. Won't take long to make your own. Weathertech DigiFits may be the best mod yet for function. Have fun.

    Yeah, I know there will be more mods to come for function, but most of those cost money...Right now, I'm looking at the first payment and replacing the money I used for the down payment.

    Once that is done, hopefully I will get some of these mods done before I have to buy a house...LOL.

    Better pics of the tint and truck today. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of taking the truck to a car wash instead of washing myself like I always do. The guy waxing was a bit shorter and decide that it was imperative that he get on his hands and knees on my roof to wax that. I damn near had a heart attack. Repair estimates are coming tomorrow.

    I have a 2012 TRD Exhaust on my 2013 DCLB. After hearing rumors about the rear hanger being different on 2013, I decided to get underneath and take a look.

    Here is a video I took showing the hanger. I didn't know the dealership did this, but it looks bent. Fit is good and tight, but looks like they did in fact bend it 45 degrees. Hope this helps. Sorry about the quality.

    Here is a pic of a pre-2013 where you can see the exhaust hanger facing the drivers side...my 2013 faces the rear...Not my Pic, but you get the idea...

    I used fishing line. All you have to do is place it between the emblem and pant and use it to cut the glue like a cheese cutter. then you can pick the residue off and use Goo Gone to wipe away the leftover...really easy. I've done it on my last 3 cars and its never taken over 15 minutes for the whole thing...

    Love it. not too loud, not too quiet. It really howls when you get on it but cruising down the highway isn't annoying. Had one on my 2011 as well and I made the choice to get it again rather than just a muffler...even tho it would have been a lot cheaper. Plus its warrantied with your truck if you have the dealer install it...(only cost me $60 for install on my 2011)
