A belated welcome to the forum. Your years of Tacoma experience should serve you very well with your new purchase. Congratulations! Looks very nice.

Was up late researching sliders actually, and BAMF is on my short list. Cool that they are local to us here...

I've seen photos only, but his sliders look very nice indeed. I imagine you plan to pick them up locally... His are longer than most and will entail that us Limited guys trim fender flares - i believe. I look forward to your install.

Changed all the gear oil to redline today. Finally finished installing the LBJs, UBJs, OTRs, CVís, wheel spacers, and steering rack bushings today as well..
Tomorrow Iím going to finish installing my radio and take it to get smogged.

Welp just got the smog done, thought I was going to have to come back because I had the battery disconnected. Got a couple pics real quick while driving it around. When installing the radio I installed a switch for my antenna (I never use the radio..)

Strongarm struts. I recommend the overcharged model if you have any extra weight on the liftgate, I added a few pounds of sound deadening so it helps.

Nice buy! I'm not always the biggest fan of the two-tone colors, but I really like the green/grey combo.
