    ...been lurking on TN, TW and TTORA for a while now. I barely post though because I am still new (when it comes to working on them) to the Toyota world. I have owned my truck for 3 years now and its basically stock. Both work and go to school full time so I do not have a lot of time for hobbies...but since I am on a summer break I thought it would be time to get back into photography and working on cars/trucks.

    Here are some pics of my old car...kind of miss driving a manual and something I could take corners with.

    And on with the new...

    These are older pics of the truck..when I had limo tint on the doors and back and the front windsheild tinted. Currently running legal tint on the truck. Removed all stickers/emblems, TSB in the rear and running 267/75/16 A/T.

    If I get a lift..would like to go on a run and hopefully snap a few pics.

    Thanks for the welcome!

    S200's are fun cars. They would do really well for a track/weekend car. An 04-05 STI would also do the trick. Would just need to find an excuse for the wife to purchase one. :)

    Hey how's it going?

    Just to let you know, we go on stock friendly trail runs all the time. Just let us know when you want to go out and we can set something up. These trucks are very capible vehicles from the factory.

    So I think I will be doing my first real mod soon...working on picking up a set of used 16nch ATX Chambers! Now I need to work on the lift.
