    Before buying the truck I checked online some accessories like mudguards, floor mats, door sill guards, badge overlays, tailgate inserts, TRD shifter, etc. Turns out you can get everything afterwards a LOT cheaper than having it installed on the truck.

    Thing is pretty much every Tacoma out there already has a trifold tonneau, mudguards, door guards, and a bunch of other things installed. The only truck without any accessories was 200 miles away. Luckily the dealer is willing to bring it over. :D

    Coming from Jeeps, I find Tacoma accessories quite inexpensive.

    PS - I like the TRD Pro grille, but that one looks like one very expensive giant piece of plastic.

    Buying the tech package with trifold tonneau cover. The tech package is a terrible interface, I use my phone for everything. The cover was nice but I already upgraded to Diamondback.

    Cheap Tube steps, three years and the things are starting to rust... Bought them mainly for door ding protection.

    Gotta agree with this one. Unless it's for towing, or an Off-Roader only and not a DD, it's overkill.

    I absolutely love my C Load 265/75/16 Duratracs. Very aggressive A/T tire with a great rain rating! Wish they made them in a 255/80 or 85/16

    I regret my bakflip cover more and more. I bought it because I could secure things in my bed, it sat flush on the top of the bed rails and I liked the streamline look. I’ve learned functionally, it eats up bed space and I’d rather have a cover that might not be as streamlined so I could have a higher clearance inside.

    Also after 3 years of use, the quality has degraded significantly. The rubber doesn’t seal much of anything and my bed is constantly wet.

    Yup, my C-load 285 BFG KO2 ride much better than my old 255/80r17 ST Maxx's did. They feel more confident on the highway at 70+mph too.

    Currently, the TRD Offroad headlights, thinking a more practical change would be Clazzio seat covers

    Pro Grill with garnish and some raptor lights. Prefer the stock with black surround. Grill sits in a box with the lights and garnish attached.

    A magnaflow muffler. Nothing but a noise maker and made me feel like a ricer. Also it gave me headaches after long rides. Thank the Lord I only had it on there about two weeks before I sold the truck.

    My new 2005 has a K&N intake on it, and I hate it, but it was free and it only makes noise when I pass slow pokes so not nearly as annoying. I could still do without it.

    Anyone want to trade me their stock airbox? Lol

    265/75/16 BFG K02 e rated. Great tires with great performance. Just so damn heavy at 54lbs, was unaware it would affect the truck the way they did. Even with a manual and 4.30 gears. Looking at the Wildpeaks in stock size for summer

    Random question: what’s the stock gearing I’m getting on a 2019 TRD Off-Road automatic...?

    Thanks. That’s not horrible. Especially given the stock tire size.

    I'm on the fence since I bought sliders for $250 without doing much research on how weld ons should be mounted and these were cut off with a plasma it looks like. So now I'm spending money to redo all the runners and make gusseted plates for them to weld onto. I'm still in it for less than new with shipping but my wife really let me have it over it.

    Buying the access cab was a no brainer for me, I needed that extra foot of bed space, and besides it just looks better. three years in I have not missed the extra space behind the seat.
