Default My 2011 Sport Intro

Hey all, just wanted to introduce my new sport truck to the section I will undoubtedly be spending a lot of my time. I already did a quick intro in the newbie section.

I spent the last six years driving a Toyota Tacoma (06 and then an 09). Great truck in my opinion and it suited me just fine. I spent a lot of time on the Tacoma forums, learning, teaching, having fun, and obsessing about the next mod.


I really am going to miss this truck



Had it not been for an unexpected third child on the way, that Tacoma and me would have been together a long time. But as luck would have it, my local dealer (who I just bought a Nitro from for my wife a couple months ago) was trying to give away the Rams, and I was in the mood to listen.



I needed something to haul three kids, and pull our camper. I pulled it just fine with the Tacoma, and I'm sure this beast will pull it without issue.



I did already add the break controller, so it could be considered my first "mod".


This truck is freaking awesome! But being the kind of person who has this illness who just needs to mod, I have issues with it. The truck does look so good, it is difficult to see what needs to be done yet. I mean, I'm sure I'll figure it out, but the think looks so good as it is stock, it may take some time to find the right additions for me.

So far I just changed the antenna to a smaller one and added the break controller. I ordered the new CHR550 Lockpick and hope to have that in soon. I also have a camera system for the trailer which I hope to get on this weekend.

Here are just a couple more pics (like most I love seeing pics so I love posting them). I'll be around here a while as well.

I love that color and it would be my first choice, but just living out here in 130 degree summers ruined me for dark paint. I pick mine up this Thursday and see everyone's picks just gets me more excited.

Nice truck, mine looks pretty much identical, I added mudflaps for the infernal dirt road I live on, and that is is so far.

Welcome to the forum. Good looking truck. Your Tacoma looked good too. What brand/model of wheels did you have on the Tacoma? I like the looks of those.

Good choice on the color!!!
Get rid of all the chrome I say! Throw some HID's in that beast, Exhaust, CAI, and you'll be off to a good start! lol.

Nice Truck!

Those Toyotas are a great size IMO, a buddy of mine has one and loves it. However I like the Rams better
