    Name is matt, 29 years old, never owned a truck in my life, my second toyota, i also drive a 2009 Toyota Corolla S

    Wanted a truck to hit some soft trails, home depot runs, dump runs, and help out the many people i know that are always renting one...

    2000 Tacoma SR5 4x4 5sp 154k miles
    bilstein 2" with add a leaf in rear
    Pretty much stock besides the small lift, also has a DVD/HD radio with a big touch screen that i dont know what to do with... the AUX plug in is nice though

    Picked her up the other day... already hauled something yesterday (70x82 french door. had to lay over rails and tie down, you can see the new french doors in backround of first picture)

    I have a list of mods i want to do, this website over the last week has given me some great ideas..
    • Tint front windows (rest are already tinted)
    • LineX
    • Some kind of guard for the front
    • Some kind of tonneau to maybe get a couple extra MPG

    Don't buy a tonneau if you think you'll see an increase in MPG (we've had both a soft and hard tonneau and there's no difference). They DO keep the bed clean and dry, though...
