    Hey guys/gals...I just found this forum and decide to join.

    Well, I have a 2004 Toyota Tacoma Xtra Cab, 3.4L TRD. I love this truck and its the second Toyota truck I have owned. I am a member of a few other toyota forums. I love to be outdoors and driving my truck.

    Well I hope that I can meet some of you guys and Ill try to my best to throw in a little help whenever possible. Take care.

    Welcome to the forum and a vote of thanks for your time in the service. I too am a vet, though my time was in 66-69.
    I am a first time Yoda owner and I do love my truck, can't wait for the spring to come, so I can tow my boat and get out fishing on the water.

    Question for Steviestyles, do they(Army) still have a basic training at Ft Dix ? Took my basic there, in Jan 66, being from Mass. I didn't mind doing PT in the cold grey dawn but lots of the other guys from down south and out west did not like it at all. Our company was very close to Maquire as they used to test jet engines not to far away. Any thoughts on that? Thanks

    Ft Dix for the most part is closed down. Anymore, it's a reserve training base. They do have a MEP station there.
