    Re-upholstered center console
    Picked up a 1997 T4R Limited 4X4 with 205k on the clock from some high school kid. $2500 but it was wrecked so I didn't feel bad. Got the damage repaired at the body shop so total invested so you could say I got her for $3700. So far I have upgraded the headlights($130), re-upholstered the center console($20), and threw a JVC deck I had in the garage in her. Currently I have some six spoke wheels from the 14' Trail Edition in the garage(ebay $500 shipped), 265/70/17 Terra Grap's, and Alpine Type R's sitting in the garage. Tires and wheels get installed tomorrow and we'll see if I get around to the speakers this weekend. This is my first Toyota and I bought it in a pinch as I needed something to drive after I sold my truck(2014 F-150 FX4). Honestly I am in love. I feel like I'm in highschool again... and I no longer have a $500+ car payment per month LOL. Affording it wasn't the issue, but after the truck spent a lot of time in the shop(all covered under warranty) I decided to cut my losses. Look forward to interacting with you all!!!

    One last thing... keep the 3rd gen and pimp her out? Or pick up an 09' Limited?

    Someone started a plasti-dip on the right rear fender flare. It peeled off easily.
