i just want to share the story of my x. my x is a 2005 rr x-runner. i work at salvage yard so we see a lot of cars. i have been watching the x since it came out. i have wanted one badly. so one day my boss called and said their was some kind of sporty tacoma at the sale. it had a clean title and it was not wrecked it just needed some minor body work he wanted to know if i was interestd in it. i was drivng a lifted 01 jeep wrangler. which was like riding a pack mule everywhere. so heck yeah i was interested. i went and lookd at the truck it was a 05 rr x runner. end up the truck only has 5068 miles on it.

to make a long story short i ended up getting it for 12000.00
i replaced:
drivers door
drivers running board
rims

some won had taken the wheels off and put 16" mustang wheels on it.

i put some 20s on it with 255/45r/20 toyo proxes
removed rear cats
added single in dual out flowmaster

i have about 16500.00 in it now.
an suggestion on mods would be great.

it is the best truck i have ever had
:headbang: :headbang:
i am looking forward hanging with you guys on TC!!!!!!!

i hope to have so pics on soon.

i am trying to gets some pics on but it has been raining he since saturday.

i can try to see if i can get headlights. when i was looking for a door for my x i found that i could buy the stuff fom the dealer here for less than i could at my exchange salvage yard. sounds dumb but i bought my door for 485.00 from the dealer they wanted 700.00 at my other salvage yard. i paid 150.00 for my ground effect.

but if any of you guys need any parts i can get just about any part for any car or truck yall don't be scared to ask.
