THREAD UNDER CONSTRUCTION.


Hello everyone. First post here. I've been a lover of everything outdoors since I was a kid. I've ridden mountain bikes, raced motorcycles in the desert and raced off-road cars, camped, hiked, fished as much as possible. I finally decided to build a vehicle to get me further into the outdoors. I decided to go with a Tacoma after much research. I felt it best fit my needs.

I'm still deciding if I like the redesign. In the meantime I will be following this to see where it goes.

I like the new front end, and the crawl control is cool too. My buddy here just bought a desert tan one, and I feel that you could do a whole lot worse in the current truck market.

I just paid off my Sierra and swore to drive it til it falls apart... the new Tacomas have me lusting though. Your build doesn't help me in my struggle! Awesome rig.

About to pull the trigger on some Pelfrey Built sliders. I can not decide if I want the top plates or not. I like how they look better without them. They're less expensive without them. That said, I know there are some advantages to having them. Anyone have a strong opinion one way or the other?

BEAUTIFUL! As much of a Ford Guy as I am I Love Toyota. They've got the midsized truck off road market tied up tight.

Nope. I'd imagine tacmedic is short for "tactical medic". I'm TacoMEDIC because I'm a gynecologist...

.... Or because I really like Tacomas and I've been a Paramedic for 10 years.
Hehehehehehehehehehe. The former I'd say...

By the way, I should exclaim to you my gratitude for what you do. I've had my life saved by medics and I have no idea who they were... So thank you for what you do.

Caveat: this statement of gratitude only apply a to you if you're a medic... Not if you're a gynecologist... Just sayin'.
