    New here and need some info (hopefully) on the truck of a member that has passed. I bought the '07 access cab 4x4 from his sister. It only has 9200 miles and I am trying to figure out what he did to it. She told me that he was a frequent visitor to this site. With all of the threads and members, I cannot find anything. It is silver with the TRD S/C, CAI, Exhaust, and Thorley Headers. The seats have also been changed out to Corbeau's. The suspension has been modified, but the biggest thing is that it seems to have different cams. It idles aggressively and loves gas. About 10 mpg is what I am guessing. I did some research and found TTC Performance Cams, but they say that they had no record of a purchase. I felt a steal at $17K, but I will pay in fuel cost. It is a 6sp manual and the S/C pulley is not the TRD or the URD upgrade. Not sure what I have. I am looking at bringing the truck closer to stock, but not sure where to start.

    I will take some pictures and post them tomorrow. As someone new to car forums, it sure seems overwhelming to find specific info.

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    How did you find out he was a member? Did he have a TW sticker on his truck, you asked his sister, or she told you without you asking?

    Yeah, try to get some pictures up of the inside and outside if you could. I probably wont know who it was, but would like to see your truck!

    Wow. I remember that guy's truck. Early on I was trying to figure out what to do about all the sensors when I replaced my seats and he was the only person able to maintain full functionality with the Corbeau swap.

    Sorry to hear he passed. :(
