    Hey Gang, Just wanted to introduce myself, I've been spying on all of you for some time now. I'm totally overwhelmed by the amount of information on this board. You should all be proud of yourselves. I'm driving an Impulse Red 05 AC Tacoma which is totally stock except for an iPod direct connect and a Leer 180. Looking to bump up to 5100's in the front and 5125's with an AAL in the back. I am not planning on having the TSB done, although the truck does seem to sag in the rear. (pretty sure I'm ineligable anyways at 70,000 mi) Which AAL has the best bang for the buck? I split my time between Southern Maine and the Colorado Rockies, so I'd like to keep tires on there that do me well on the highways, but are more agressive than the Dunlops that came with the truck. I'm also thinking of painting the factory rims, badging, skid plate and grill surround a darker color(charcoal) to give it a more unique look. Throw in a cold air intake, and I think I'll be all set- or maybe I'm just getting started....:D

    Thanks for the warm welcome! I've de-badged (used a PETCO card) and repainted them, I'll post some pics when they're back on, and I've got the Billys on the way.
