    I didn't see your replies! thanks!!!

    Now, it's time to update... Since I didn't have any mounts for my Hi-Lift and buying them from the states is really expensive, I decided to build them!

    Here are the pics of how they turned out!

    Well, today I arrived home and there was something waiting for me... Could it be possible?? Yeah! It was a package sent from the US... from Andres... I opened it and there it was:

    IMG_6986_545066223220a786c6f018c26485cfed56590810.jpg

    I was really excited, I wanted to install those Devil Horns right away! but I have other stuff to do, and tomorrow I'm taking my truck to install the custom skid plates, so it would bu until the weekend...

    Suddenly rain starts to fall, and as the traffic jams were going to be terrible, I decided to get it installed today!

    Here are some pictures:

    Well, this is not for my truck... its for my iPad & iPhone but I post them since they go with me every expedition and that's why I need to protect them...

    What do you think?

    It's amazing when you have clear sky!

    Muchas gracias! yo sabía que debía de haber otro mexicano en este foro tan grande!

    La Hilux en México solo se comercializa la de gasolina y en 2 versiones... no hay Hilux diesel ni 4x4... la Tacoma la preferí porque la compre "usada" a muy buen precio y es mucho más cómoda para utilizarla diario...

    Pues el rally se corrio en guanajuato, leon, silao, irapuato y varios pueblos pequeños que están alrededor...

    Solo hicimos ruta los 3 días y pues no salimos a ningún lugar, pero estuvo muy bien muy divertido y me quedé con ganas de ir de nuevo, pero como dices, a parrandear!!!

    Saludos!!

    hahaha you made me laugh... I haven't had any problems so far... Actually, right now there is no problem in Mexico City with the drug cartels... The problem is more on the north part of the country and cities near the borders (north and south)...

    And I have been told by friends that are in the Army that they prefer to have common cars so they can go through without any problems, I'm talking about mercs, bmw, and they use a lot of Tahoes...

    But thanks!!!! it looks rude, right? haha

    Well, last weekend (07/13/12) was my first time on dunes!

    I went to Chachalacas (Gulf of Mexico) and it was awesome!!!

    The only problem I had is that my ARB bumper doesn't have the plate that covers the radiator, so I bent it... :s

    Here are the pictures:
