    Where are all the Tacos at in Chicago? I was here for three days and only saw three. One of those three was a 5-lug.

    Thanks, looks like fun. is there any spots for a stock 4x4?

    Good question darek. I've seen plenty out on the road around here but seems there is very few as members here. Still good to know that there are some. Been workin crazy hours lately, but am still hoping to meet up with everyone one of the weekends.

    It was weird! In San Diego, you see three Tacos every second. :laugh:


    The first things I noticed in Chicago were White Castle, and the lack of Tacomas. :laugh:


    In fact, I hardly saw any pick up trucks at all. :confused:


    I was everywhere from Midway to Barrington to Wrigleyville! Only saw three. :eek:

    Thats wired, i've seen plenty. Don't get me wrong its not like there is one every other intersection but i would say i see one every day. I do agree though it would be nice to see more.

    You might be seeing mine in a few years. :D


    I would definitely trade in for a 4X4 Tacoma though. I would more than definitely need it in the winter.
