    Hey everyone, just introducing myself to the forum! I am taking Delivery of my 2008 Tacoma tonight! I went with the budget option of the Reg cab 4X2 in black, but I have some plans for this truck, so I will keep you posted!

    One word: Murdered.

    If anyone can point me in the direction of some trick aftermarket hookups it would be much appreciated! I am going to try and go a "tuner" route with this truck, kinda like half mini-truck, half MR2 style!

    So I got the windows tinted today, and I took off the front plate -- that is the extent of my personalizing as of yet! Can someone point me in the direction of a nice 4+ in. drop kit???? I've been looking all over with no luck!

    Here's a pic I just took...like I said, damn near stock, but hopefully that will all change very soon! :D

    Gratz on the truck! I can't help with info on a lift but I've never been into just doing a mod for looks. ;)
