    Hey there everyone I'm not a new tacoma owner but I am new to this site. I wanted a page to post some of my mods and other stuff so here it is.

    2008 Doublecab TRD Offroad 6 speed
    K&N intake
    URD short throw shifter
    Bilstein 5100's set at 2.5
    Toytec AAL
    LED dome and map light
    LED gauge cluster

    I love my tacoma and with more money comes more mods.

    Here are a few pics.

    I changed the LED's in my gauge cluster myself. If anyone in the denver area wants this done then let me know.

    Its not all that hard really, it take a steady hand and focus haha, the leds that you solder in there are really small, and Ive been a tech for a few years now and went through a toyota training program called TTEN.

    If it isn't a TRD then yes it will. The only products that won't void the warranty are TRD.

    Hey toytech,

    I would love to do this mod to my truck - Could you tell me what brand LED's you used and any helpful specifics. Also, did you change out the gauge needles for some clear ones - Seems like the stock red would distort the color some.

    Anyway - Your color scheme looks great !!
