    this doesnt really count as a mod but i figured id say in this section that ill put up some pics of my truck after it gets fixed. some guy decided to turn into me and ruined the whole passenger side. truck is so tough the window and locks and door still work fine.
    try to do it yourself. it brings you closer to your truck. it creates a special bond. haha

    It took me a little under 7 hours. There are endless videos on YouTube of supercharged tacoma's, look there

    Dealership mechanics went to college and got certified. The highschool drop outs you speak of are the ones working at Jiffy Lube.

    Going to college doesn't certify somebody in my book. Nobody takes care of items that are not owned by them as well as they take care of items they own. If I do my own work, I know it's done right the first time

    Exactly lmao. I only let "certified mechanics" touch my truck if it's absolutely necessary. I.e. ECU flash, or jobs requiring special tools like adjust the backlash on the differential. I don't want my pumpkin to detonate lol.


    I've done everything to my truck in my own garage, easily as hell with basic hand tools
