    My name is Jeff and I live in New Jersey. My '03 DoubleCab is the 4th Toyota Tacoma I have owned. I started right out of high school(2000) with a left over 1999 Tacoma ext. cab. I drove that truck until 2007, when with over 400,000 miles, Toyota bought it back off me due to frame recall. I found this picture of it on my computer, the day I got my ZZR600. I babied that truck. I had to as it was my dd. I used to travel about 700 miles a week for my old job.
    [​IMG]


    When Toyota gave me my frame recall check, I put it down on an impulse buy of a 2006 Xrunner. :cool: 22'' rubber, tinted and bright blue! While it looked great, it became an expensive hit everytime I found a nail during my 700 mile/week journey. Not to mention all the attention I received from the many police officers I passed. And the tools who wanted to race me. Its a Tacoma, not a Typhoon.

    I really loved that truck. But it did not fit my needs. I really couldn't load the bed and believe it or not, It sucked in the snow...lol So after a year and a half, I traded it in for a 2008 base Tacoma 4x4.

    [​IMG]

    I threw in an AAL, discovered TacomaWorld and did some other small things (intermittent wiper/deck plate/ aftermarket fogs) . But again, this truck was strictly a 'get me to work to make money' truck. That It did for 2 years and almost 100,000 miles.

    Then I get a new job which included a company truck!!!!! The '08 sat in the driveway for 3 months until I decided to sell it and start saving for a truck that will NOT be a daily driver. I hate to see it go, but it was such a base model...Roll up windows, 3 speed wiper, rubber floors (which I actually miss). But it was 4x4, 4cyl and a 5 speed! Im sure it made the guy who bought it a great truck.

    I started my search (and my savings) for a Tacoma that I could spoil. Since 5 days a week it will be sitting in my driveway. While I love the 2nd gen body style, I LOVE the 3.4l way more!. My '99 had over 400k with the original 3.4l. I kept saving and searching. Then right before Christmas 2012, I found a keeper for sale in Maryland.

    It was a one owner 2003 Doublecab 4x4 w/ the diff lock. It was for sale at a Toyota dealership. It had 64,000 miles and was mint! The first owner was an employee there. I drove there the day after Christmas and after 8 hours of bargaining, I drove it home under mostly my terms...:D

    Here is how it looked that night.

    Then I installed a K&N fipk. I am still undecided if I actually like it.

    Out with the old (I saved it incase I do take the K&N out one day:confused:)

    Then I installed a Clarion VX400 unit. I loved how this thing just fit right in! I have the nav installed into it and I like its bluetooth feature. I got it on closeout from Crutchfield. They sent me a 2nd gen dash kit as well. I never ordered it or even paid for it. I later gave it to a member here on TW.

    [​IMG]

    Then after reading what seemed to be a million threads on here, I ordered OME 883 coils, dakar leaf packs & Nitrocharger sport shocks. I also got an extended brake line, diff drop and new bushings.

    I hated seeing this stuff sitting on my garage floor. So I picked the coldest day in the history of man to put it all in. The saturday before the Superbowl.

    The Kelly's came recommended to me by local tire shop. The shop owner used them on his jeep.

    What type of mesh is that? I'm probably going to copy your TRD emblem as well... :spy:

    I tried using the Internet to price match and I really couldn't find any either online. I ultimately would only tires from a local shop anyway. I like dealing locally when spending that kind of money. Keep calling local places. Someone has to have them!

    I love them so far. I thought they would noisy. They really aren't. Handle highway speeds great. And dominate offroad. Don't know about snow because we haven't got any accumulation here in S. Jersey

    A HomerTaco mesh. The quality is superb! I had Craig powder coat it black. HT really offers a top notch product.

    I've gotten quite a few compliments on the emblem. :)

    Awesome, thanks! I'm tempted to try the MX mesh, but I'm not sure how good it would look...

    No prolem! I think you might have to modify the mx mesh to fit the studs for a grill emblem. The TRD emblem uses 1/4 20 sized studs. You may have to ream the slots a little.

    Luckily the M1 holes fit the emblem studs without an issue
