    Those are some of the sexiest pics i have ever seen. i really like the grill and the badging on the white truck. I love the red TRD emblems. Although i have to admit, all those trucks look really good. are all the members from this site?

    Hey ndcouch, they are two buddies of mine. I met them both on CT. I'm an old TN guy but this site is growing on me. Taco5 has the white one that I have been stripping down for the last month. He is trading it in and the dealer told him to go back to stock. Damn I'm lucky! I got his wheels and tires and exhaust. The black taco is Oxymaroon's and he lives 1 mile from me. Not many guys from the sites in my area so I got lucky. Seems like everyone who has a Tacoma and likes to do mods lives in Cali.

    Cool, sounds like you are lucking out on some cheap/free mods. why is taco5 trading his in? you know, i have heard these trucks are worth alot more if they are stock than if you mod the crap out of them, which is one reason i'm starting to think i may not mess with mine too much. a 3in lift at the VERY most. Although its true that adding mods brings down the resale value, poor ole' PB2themax could probably only get about $100 for his truck ;) I'm thinking that instead of moding my truck, im gonna take the money my brother owes me for wrecking my car, buy another Beamer and spend all my extra money turing it into the ultimate race car (unfortunately performance parts for beamers make performance parts for taco's look cheap as hell) anyway, im jealous you got a Taco Meet up. Hopefully we'll get a good one together down here in the Carolinas soon. I'm in the process of trying to get 007 to come up for that one. Glad you had fun. Btw, GREAT pics, having all three lined up like that is really hot! kinda reminds me of a bikini shoot.... except so much sexier ;)

    I actually found Taco5 lurking on TTORA's FJ forum. First thought was TRAITOR!!! Thats when we started with his wheels. He is waiting until the 08s are out to buy an FJ. Its been a year and a lot of luck for me to get the truck where it is pretty cheaply. I even found a D.C. guy to swap hoods with. Next week is the sunroof and the only thing left will be the sliders. Hard to find those cheap. Do you have any pics posted on here?

    I have a few pics of me getting stuck in the mud the second night i had my truck. i was drunk and it was midnight and my buddy's cousin had alot of land with alot of big tractors. We went camping out there and i got stuck. not alot of mud but there was a ditch and a log i got stuck between. there is a description in the pics. It doesn't look that bad but i wasn't going anywhere. I need more aggressive tires and need to wait till im sober....ish next time

    btw, you're lucky to find someone who wants to trade hoods. i wish i could get one with a scoop. I'm surprised you're wanting to get rid of the scoop. why did you get the sport if you didnt like the scoop?

    If you have Windows, you can use "Paint" to resize your pictures. Open the picture in Paint. Select Image | Stretch/Skew or just hold the CTRL button while pressing "w" (<CTRL>+w).

    In the top two boxes (stretch), put in equal values less than 100% (e.g. 50 & 50 will make it half the size). If you're only over the limit by a little amount, try something like 80 & 80 or 90 & 90.

    If you save over the existing file, you won't be able to go back.
    If you don't care about keeping the original photo, you can just save the file.

    If you want to keep the original, do a "Save As..." and name it something different (that's safest).

    Hey ND, how far is it for you to Lewes, DE? We are talking about having a "Pumkin Chunkin" East Coast meet the first weekend of November. This is an insane affair that is a huge party. Keep it in mind if its close enough for you.

    TJO: i honestly have no idea how far of a drive that would be for me. I'm guessing a good 8 hours or something, but i'm really not sure. Hell, i dont have a map in front of me so i'm really not sure where DE is.... i hate geography
