    Just wanted to say hi and make my presence known - I've been lurking about these forums for a good long while, so I figured it was past time to register.

    As a longtime owner of various Tacomas, this forum has been a great resource for DIY solutions and info that has saved me tons of money and headaches. So, I also just wanted to say thanks to you all for such a great resource! The adult, no-BS posting here is also refreshing.

    I'd post pics of my current Taco to go with this, but winter in MN makes that futile. The ever-present salt and roadgrime patina isn't very sexy. Ah well, as soon as it warms up. :D

    Well, compared to some other forums I've participated in/lurked at over the years, yeah! But, it's all relative I suppose, hehe.

    Snapped a few phone pics of my truck during my lunch hour yesterday in case anyone's curious... Done a few things since I got her last year: bumper fogs, int. wiper switch, TRD exhaust, tonneau, back-up cam and some nice floor liners. I'll take some nicer pics with my DSLR after she gets a wash, and if I'm ever able to get out of work at a decent hour...

    Hoping wheels/tires are next... we shall see.
