    I bought my first new pickup in April 2009. This white Mazda B-2300.

    [​IMG]

    I bought it for dirt cheep for 10,900 with just 5 miles on her. It kept me happy for a bit, but was just too small. I was car shopping online and finally, at a local Ford dealership, I found my Toyota. I'd always wanted a Tacoma, but could never afford a used one because of there higher resale value. This one was $16,500 with only 24k miles on it. After Ford offered me 9000 on my mazda trade, it was a no-brainer.
    Here's the newbie in the driveway the first evening. I'd rushed home so I could get a pic the day I signed the paperwork.

    [​IMG]

    You know when you first get your ride, and you still have the dealership tag on the front? This was the first thing to go on my truck. It gave me a chance to rock my Brooks n Dunn plate for first couple weeks.

    Here she is at the Beach. This was when gas milage was at it's best. My next modification would cost me a 2-3 mpgs.

    Goodyear Silent Armor 265/75/16. and debadged... I also put in the AFE at this point[​IMG]

    Next my Weathertechs came in!

    Window Tint came shortly (Thanks to my wife) and then the spring TSB (thanks to San Marcos Toyota)

    Looks wise, it's about how I want it. I'd like some sliders and maybe the BHLM but these are taking a backseat to my sound system.

    Thanks to everyone who's helped out so far. More to come...

    Thanks bud, just going through your pics. Your white truck is dope. White is actually my first choice in colors, but this black ain't too bad either. Just gotta dry it after the wash.

    I like the black! I just got my first Tacoma about a week ago! So many things to do going to take a while, I think I just like reading what everyone has done, save some coin and then see what happens but diffinately the stero is the first thing to go as I need anything that will allow me to hook up my Iphone. BTW when changing out the stero do the controls on the steering wheel still work?

    My advice is to take your time and don't rush anything. There seems to be alot of aftermarket gadgets for these things. Just saying make sure you really want something before you spend too much coin. :p

    And yes the black kicks ass. It is the meanest looking IMO.

    The grass is always greener on the other side.

    Finally uploaded these pics... All black grill, and a sub woofer. The sub is a JL 12 with an alpine amp. Thumps pretty hard, but the system is a little wack. I still have the factory door speakers :p This sub will do until I need to take back the space.

    I picked up some used lights from the junkyard right before I left to visit the fam, so I threw them in the truck and I made my dad and bro participate. It was good family fun.

    I still need to take a few pics with them on the truck...
