    No, I'm not talking about beef seasoned with cumin. After my '99 Land Rover Discovery (The White Russian) died and went to hell, I drove an '05 Honda Civic (The Black Blur) for about four years. After fours years of Dallas roads beating the suspension something unmerciful, I went and decided to crash that into the back of someone in a rain storm. Apparently I go through cars faster than some people change their underwear. I went about 14 months without a car since I live about two blocks from work, and had to borrow my dads Honda Accord to go deer hunting (LOL). But finally, the Taco Gods smiled upon me, and in December I was able to purchase a 2014 TacomaN Prerunner v6 SR5. I don't really do much off roading except to get to fishing/hunting/camping spots, so I figured I could make do with 2 wheel drive since I couldn't really afford the 4x4. I would like to someday buy replacement bumpers and skid plate with a wench and air compressor. All I've done so far is remove the mud flaps and plastidip the badges and wheels. Some of you guys I know are cringing about that but hey I just don't have the money for new 18" tires and wheels. Anyway, without any further adieu, here it is. I give you Darth Vader. Be gentle.

    it's like everyone here says, this website has already given me some unsettling ideas about all the wonderful ways i can burn pay checks on this truck...new steel plate bumpers, winch, bed rack, light bars, new wheels and tires, cold air intake, i want some darker tint and a visor strip...some day it will be the true murder machine Darth Vader I've always dreamed of. Someday...:pccoffee:
    Anyone know of a good pole mount (police style) spotlight for 2nd gen Tacos?
