I hate to say farewell to everyone here... But I've decided to trade the Tacoma in on a larger truck. Not that I didn't like the Taco, quite honestly, I loved it... just time for something larger and couldn't pass up the deal.
FWIW, I appreciate all the help this forum has provided over the years, the friendships I've made, and I hope that I was able to help someone out in the process.
For those that I've pissed off - or those that pissed me off - I'm letting bygones be bygones.
To Neubs (Dave), PresidentRedz, silver07taco, Colinb17, and all the other Maryland based Tacoma drivers... Thanks for the good times off-roading up at Greenridge and running during Snowmageddon 2009-2010.
For those that are interested in what I got for my slightly modified 2006 Taco TRD Sport with 13330k miles, mind you - it was paid off; they gave me 13,000 even.
Any if anyone is interested in what I picked up... Red 2011 GMC Sierra SLE Z71 almost identical to this one w/ a 5.3L V8:
And a special thanks to all those that supported me during my 2nd deployment to the sandbox... and to all those that have served and still do.
(P.S. - I'll likely cancel my account during the next week or so - so if anyone wants to trade contact info, PM me.)
