    SAS isnt different from the normal? odd.

    only SAS? may want to read the specs again. passenger side transfercase, 4.7's, spartan front locker, and a lot more than just "SAS".

    I never vote in these things cause it's usually so obvious, but couldn't help it this time. Tough decision for sure. Whoever wins, both should know that they've got two of the cleanest and capable yota's on the forum.

    Boxrocket gets my vote. I like the overland versatility of the truck.

    I guess since technically it is all held together by bolts it is considered bolt on and "just a SAS" :D


    Thanks for the complements guys, it is what it is. It is "Members Choice" so to each his own. :rolleyes:

    I wasn't trying to imply that a SAS setup isn't different or unique. I just haven't seen a tacoma equipped quite like BoxRocket's. Both are beautiful trucks, and that 3 link SAS and it's flex is completely badass. I just voted on who's truck I though was more unique.

    Doesn't matter who wins the vote, 2 of the best trucks on TacomaWorld hands down, and they should both be proud!

    It is just a SAS. It's a factory option.

    I too really like box rockets truck no doubt, but I rather wheel my truck to the extreme for days and have no broken parts.

    Alove, without question. Blood sweat and tears to get that thing where it is today is worthy of my vote. I've been there, but with a race car. Not taking anything from the other guy but i'm partial to the ext cab looks too. Oh and the fact that Alove still has the prerunner sticker on the back is just badass!

    Holy fuck this one is hard

    However, I love Adams rig (boxrocket) amd it has inspired so many ppl on this site to build things.

    The SAS is sick tho...but I'm not much of a SAS guy.

    The expedition rig takes the cake!

    the sas is bad ass. the crawl box, and gears and lockers make it probly one of the most dailyable crawlers out there no doubt about it.

    Box's truck has alot of small details i like. It can still go alot of places as well but offers much more versitility in the camping and dailyable subjects...

    so hard.... but i like the fact box's is an all around truck, every little thing has a purpose. plus i got to wheel with him so that kinda has an edge lol

    so i gotta get a topper and a trasharoo before I'm cool and in members choice huh!? :-D

    Alove's SAS rig is sick as hell....

    But had to vote for boxrocket's expo rig...Hard to find another truck as equipped as his.

    Plus we all see how hard he wheels it...and it still looks freaking new!!
