Better mount and organize my crap
I redid this intro because... Well it was disorganized and annoying. Background, purchased this from a gentleman with about 76k, miles bone stock.
The goal which led me to the 1st gen tacoma dc TRD:
Reliable family car to fit my wife, kids (future), two dogs, bikes, camping gear, with the ability to take us to amazing places accessible by capable trail vehicle.
