    Okay I am off tomorrow, and am going in to work for an hour or so to watch tazer training, and then off after that. Thinking some more Taco mods may be in order. Any ideas? Key words, CHEAP, CHEAP, and CHEAP. Oh, easy too. I want stuff that won't necessarily take all day, but a few quickies wouldn't be bad. What say ye, oh all knowing Tacomites?

    C'mon man. I was a tech for over 2 years, and can barely stand the smell of that shit now. Not to mention my truck only has <7,000 miles. Something that will make it look good or function well. But thanks for the idea.

    3 cheap mods I did when I was bored one day and low on funds:


    • Tailgate hose clamp
    • Bed Mat bolted down
    • Engine cover painted

    Painting the engine cover can keep you busy for a while if you do it right. Cleaning it, taping it off, and painting.

    If you've never taken a clay bar to your truck you may want to look into that.

    Okay, well, the claybar option is a good one if you're going for looks. You can get a claybar kit at Walmart for around 15 bucks.:)

    Stick on hood scoop from Autozone.
    Yeah, take the mudflaps off. I'd leave the badges though. Or at least paint them black. Taking your badges off is like a slap in the face to your Taco. People want to know what that sexy truck is!

    Since I de-badged my Tacoma, people have been more interested in my truck than ever! IMO, I like the clean look of the badgeless Taco!:D
