Nice pickup Tyler, love the look with the shell on the back

My girlfriend have a very similar plan ... she currently drives a Corolla but wants to upgrade to a Tacoma soon

Did we just become best fwends?

It's killing me, but I'm not going to put lowering springs on 11 year-old shocks, and the coils I want are $1500. We'll see what my tax return looks like.

Without a doubt they're worth it...I just can't justify them right now. Being an adult sucks sometimes

I drove the S2k to work today for the first time in 3 weeks and it was fantastic. Traffic was horrible but I didn't bring my lunch today on purpose

Well, I did a thing.



I've been wanting a GoPro for a while and finally pulled the trigger. I purchased the Modifry mount so it sits right between the seats. Link: GoPro Windscreen Mount

I went for a quick drive and now I'm troubleshooting a very annoying rattle that I don't hear while driving but is audible in the video Here's a picture to hold you over:



I finally pulled the trigger on some actual car parts and they should be here within a week or two

I wonder if wind screen is making contact with rear of camera case? flip it back a tad?
Or the mount onto the top of the glove.

Because it's specific to the S2000 application and looks clean AF, get with it Dennis!

That looks awesome, I may get one too to document my mundane driving adventures.

On a side note, did you guys know the new 2016 Tacoma comes with a GoPro mount on the windshield as standard on the TRD off road from the factory? I wish my Jeep had something similar...

It's installed pretty tight so I don't think the windscreen is hitting it. I put a microfiber down between the secret compartments before closing them and that seemed to help everything fit more snug. We'll see what happens tonight!

I didn't want to permanently stick a mount to the vehicle. The Modifry stand can be removed without altering anything.

This.

Many people say it's secret compartment and how the pieces rub together. I'm still troubleshooting it.

A few of my coworkers have the new Tacomas with that mount and it's VERY cool. I just wouldn't leave the camera there at all times...it would just ask someone to break in and steal it.

Yeah yeah, I know. For now it's just aesthetic stuff until I get coils. I want moar lowerz too and I'm hoping it'll happen by the end of the year. And while the wheel gap bugs me, the car is still an absolute blast to drive. I don't need the coils to enjoy it

retribution. I went to your thread hoping for a TL-S and instead found an Accord.

He'll do it when it makes financial sense!

I know I sound like a broken record .. but if I were to do it all over again I'd put the money towards a different tire & wheel setup before moar lowz.

Xtremez Summer tires (even on stock wheels) totally transforms the car.

Just playing - I kinda like how you're keeping it simple for the time being. It still looks like a blast to drive.

Your front bumper looks like it's already in spectacular shape. Want to trade? Mine isn't so great since it has hit my driveway a handful of times going up/down. Even though I'd love to have one, adding a front lip is out of the question for me.

1- Turbo
2- Everything that goes with a turbo




TintS look great and can't wait to see the lip installed.
