ok... here we go. got my career started may 2011. once i got cemented in my career, i did what every young man does.... buys a new vehicle!
here was the ad for the truck: 2011 rock warrior with 12k on it. only add-ons were that the stickers were taken off, and the previous owner had a TRD sway bar on it.
got it for 4g's less than they were asking.
i bought it on monday 7/9/12
by wednesday, it was tinted (5% front, 20% rears, 50% windshield) and the front toyota emblem was repainted black (the right way this time)
Thursday, added info buttons ($50 shipped ebay)
also added underseat storage and husky weather beater mats (not pictured) as well as debadged it.
then, moved some buttons around in the interior:
