    I don't really care for it. the skulls are kind of cheesy looking along with the stack. I would give it heck out on the trail though.

    im pretty sure when it comes to "original" theres not a whole lot of trucks that stand out... except for mybe tommigum (spelling?) bthat guy from iceland... but im pretty sure theres no one else on here with a truck that looks like mine either.....

    Badass, Misfits and all. I'd bet you (me and everyone else) didnt even know they were skulls until the fourth pick. I give the man credit for rolling out with this set up. To each their own right?

    Even with some older members defending it then others jumping on their band wagon I still think it looks like ass.

    Never once did i say it wasn't capable, just with a peterbilt flap cut in half, spider web, bed stack and "Meat Machine" painted on the back it just looks stupid.

    And Jeff, I dont have the money to build mine up the way I want and unlike other members I am not going half ass it with cheap shit. I would rather wait til I have the money and do it right rather than build it up with spacers and other shit that wont last...or worse build it up then refuse wheel it [​IMG]

    nothing wrong with wanting to do it right

    its cheaper in the long run doing it that way...

    i have my reasons for not wheeling my tacoma again...and theyre very valid

    i'll wheel again one day...but quite frankly...i got to the point where wheeling IFS and worrying about sheet metal bored me and im taking a break from wheeling in general...give me a year or so and ill have another truck to wheel



    my post earlier wasnt directed at any one person...but rather...a mindset that is overtaking this forum that didnt use to be here

    paintdiddy recieved the brunt of my frustration with this in a recent thread about an h2

    people put a lot of hard work time and money into their trucks and regardless of whether or not we think it looks like ass or is gay or whatever...they like it and thats the important thing

    the camo paintjob isnt for everyone...but regardless of that...it took the guy a LOT of work to paint each and every one of those skulls on there in 3-4 different colors

    this board used to be very different than all the other tacoma boards out there...and its slowly disintegrating to the point where we bash other people/trucks/flame new folks/etc etc

    Oh i know, you reasons are the same as I for no wheelin, i was just messin around!

    Just don't browse the buy sell trade section, I have felt like a moderator lately trying to keep people from shitting all over threads there.

    He did put a bunch of time and money into that, I can respect the capability because he definitely did it right. He just chose aesthetic things that I think looks like ass and have no real use.

    I hope the spray paint holds up better on our 1980 Datsun pickup because that is my favorite part of the rig.

    Its not my truck. BUt I am a fan of Hank III and I thought the cammo and the rig as a whole are bad ass. I was just sharing and all these kids jump on it trying to be funny. But it is the internet so what do you expect?
