    Hello, I'm the new guy here. I've purchased a Tacoma within the last year and this website has inspired me to put some money into it. It's a 2008 model with only 10,000 miles and it's the SR5 package. I've just ordered about $1,500 in goodies to dress it up.

    For now, here is a few pictures from the day I purchased it.

    I apologize in advance for the picture quality. These were taken quickly with my iPhone directly after work. I'll eventually post new pictures once I'm finished upgrading and she's cleaned up!
    AFTER:

    I upgraded to stock 17" alloy wheels (for CHEAP and because I like them) and bought Wrangler Duratrac 265/70/17:

    I added Halo headlights:

    Of course you have to have the WeatherTech floor mats:

    I also added smoke LED tail lights:

    Lastly, since I am an alumnus:

    Updated some pictures. This is my first phase. It may take a few months to get the rest of the items bought and installed.

    Nice truck. I miss WV, although I did graduate from Marshall.
