    New member here - actually there are two new members - as my son just joined as well...he just got his first Tacoma 4x4 this past weekend. I'll let him brag about his when the time comes. Kinda brings a tear to your eye when your offspring get's their first lifted Toy.

    I got my first Toy 4x4 back in 82, then had an 87 and an 89 as well.

    Thought I'd scan some old photos and post them up.

    My 82 cleaned up - 3in susp, 3in body, 33in BFG Mud TA's

    That whole deal was kinda crazy - there were 4 of us who worked at the same telecommunications company and we all had 4x4 toys...we got them to "sponsor" us - had shirts and jackets made...not really sure we ever really "did" anything...entered a few car/truck shows etc... but not much. We had a whole bunch of photos taken by the company photographer.

    The yellow was a 1980 and had a bunch of work done to it. The white one is an 85 as is still owned by that guy, has 35's on it and has under 100k, he told me this morning "it hasn't seen rain for 12 years". The blue one was wrecked not too long after these were taken.
