    Decided to join up on the forums after googleing for some problems I was having.

    I am a huge Toyota fan. I was converted in 2004 when I bought a brand new 4Runner. Absolutely loved that vehicle. Prior to that I was brought up in a Ford/Dodge type of home. Put quite a few miles on the 4Runner but ultimately sold it when I had to be stationed overseas in Japan and didn't want two car payments. Came back to the US, and knew that no matter what I bought, it had to be a Toyota. Decided that a truck was for me this time but didn't need a full size like a Tundra. And so my quest for a Taco began.

    Just bought a used Silver 07 Double Cab Prerunner with the Dealer added X-SP package. Previous owner put vent visors all around and a color matched hard tonneau cover. Truck is very clean, had about 51,000 on it when I got it.

    I came to the forums looking for information on how to better install my Sirius Starmate 5 (mainly to see if a fm relay will fit in the factory radio) and how to get the factory radio out without killing trim parts. These forums were full of information and got me to do a full custom install instead. Thought about the USA Spec iPod adapter but ultimately decided against it. Waiting on my FM relay and a sirius hardwire power kit to come in this week, but I have already custom fabricated a mount for the cradle. Will create a thread with pics showing what I did when its done.

    Now I am excited about doing some more mods thanks to the forums. Pictures of the truck to follow as well once I finish with the radio install, too busy working this week right now.
