    This forum are great, I'm so glad that I bought a tacoma and found this forum. I have learned so much because of the people on this forums, and also SPENT SO MUCH because of the people on this forums :rolleyes: Anways its time for me to show what I have done to my truck in the short 4 or 5 months that I have had it.

    This is her the day after I got her, 2009 4x4 double cab SR5 w/ tow package SUPER WHITE
    IMAG0264.jpg

    Here was here first 1000 miles, it hurt so much! :(
    IMAG0289.jpg

    While I did love my truck, I knew that it wouldnt stay the way it was for very long, the very first thing I bought for it was the Tacoma floor mats all the way around
    IMAG0059.jpg

    Then those ugly ass orange and red dash lights really started to get on my nerves so I changed them to blue and white with not even 2000 miles on my truck yet :D
    200905080049_013.jpg

    Then after that I decided it was time to help protect the interior so I decided to join in on the WO group buy that was going on at the time. I'm so glad that I bought these seat covers, probably the best investment so far

    This next mod has a funny story. It was my girlfriends 21st birthday so of course her, myself, and all our friends go out and have her drink. Well on the way home from buffalo wild wings she is talking to me in my truck, and then she gets quite suddenly. I ask if shes alright and she says "maybe you should pull over" so of course I pull over right away because I dont want her to puke inside my brand new truck! But she doesnt thow up. So we wait a little bit, and continue driving, we get all the way to her home, pull in the drive way, and she makes a mad dash to open the door, but doesnt open it in time and thows up all over the arm rest :( I help her into the house, unload all her present and stuff, say good night, and go home and spent about an hour trying to clean it up best as possible while it was still fresh. The next morning I can just tell that it doesnt look the same, so I decide now its time to do the leather arm rest mod. I went to joanns, and got some spray adhesive and synthetic leather material for only like 25 bucks after tax (they were having everything for 50% off! :))
    Before (the one she puked on)

    and it back on!

    drivers side done
    200906171716_021.jpg

    Then I figured it was time to put on a lift and some new tires/rims. I got a pair of new style fox 2.5 RR coilovers for the front, fox 2.0 RR shocks for the back, toytec 1.5" AAL, TC UCA's, Diff drop kit, 17x9 KMC Addict machined wheels, and goodyear wrangler duratrac 285/70/17 tires.

    Started ripping things out

    Since then I have kinda slowed down a bit, been working way to much and not getting to spend to much time with my taco. But I have put in a scanguageII, and just today I debaged it to give it a clean look. Here are the last of the pictures of how she sits today. I love my truck even more now, and I know i'm still not done doing mods to it.

    Near future mods:
    -Tint windows
    -In dash dvd unit
    -TRD catback exhaust
    -Satoshi grill
    -BHLM
    -HID conversion

    Mods once she is all payed off
    -either Total chaos long travel, or Engage long travel
    -MAYBE TRD supercharger

    All in all I love my truck, and thanks to all you out there that make this thread what it is and gave me all these great ideas for my truck! Hope you all liked and sorry about the long post, I have been saving all this stuff up for a while, lol.

    Thanks everyone for the comments, glad you like it :)

    Looks sweeeeeeeeet! I'm putting the same wheels and tires in this weekend, but the wheels are all black. Any major rubbing issues? How much did you trim? Any rubbing on the body mount?
