    One or two things modded... Check out the build thread
    Don't need air tools... just simple hand tools. I could help if needed. Then maybe you could get that rear bumper while you are here.

    Well, not entirely.

    I drove out there, and on the second day I lost my wallet. FML. So I had to abort the mission and come home. Thank god I had a spare credit card I keep in my glovebox for emergencies and that's what financed my trip home.

    I suppose I could have stayed but I was so pissed about losing my wallet that I just lost all my enthusiasm about the trip and the excitement wasn't there anymore. The whole time my mind would be on my missing wallet and would not be able to focus on having fun. So I said "Fuck it" and came home.

    The group I was with is planning another trip next summer. I'll try again then.

    When I was driving home from my ill-fated trip to Colorado last month, I stopped in Huntington, WV for a couple of days to do some sightseeing. I shot some video footage and put together this video. Enjoy.

    So earlier this week I had a really shit surprise. I was at a TOYOTA dealership here in Fredericksburg looking at another truck and let them appraise my Tacoma. The salesman came back and told me their mechanic found a hole in my frame and if they bought it it would have to be salvaged because they couldn’t sell it again and the mechanic wasn’t sure if it would even pass state inspection. My state inspection is due in January. By this time I became very concerned (1) that my truck would break as I was driving it down the road (2) it wouldn’t pass inspection and (3) I wouldn’t be able to trade it in or sell it anywhere because of a frame issue. This is the same Toyota dealership where I took the Tacoma over two years ago to do the frame inspection and they did an undercoating. Yesterday I took my taco to a mechanic I’ve used in the past and trust to do the right thing and he put my truck on a lift and looked at the whole thing and said the dealership was full of shit. He found one area with s spot of some surface rust but said it was solid all the way around it. I’m not really sure what they think because that’s a huge lie for the dealership to try to sell me a truck and thinking I wouldn’t take it somewhere to get another opinion. But now I’m happy to know my truck won’t break driving down the road.

    This may be the same dealership that while doing the fuel pump recall on my wife's 4runner was insisting that we needed to trade in as quickly as possible because the vehicle was "rapidly depreciating" due to its "extremely high mileage for the year vehicle it is".
