    yea yea yea well im in the navy and just like any sailor im recently divorced hahaha. well long story short wife took my favorite truck (1998 dodge dakota ext. cab) and now i gotta get myself something new so i figured instead of dropping this one and doing all that crazy lowrider junk. i wanna go totally opposite of what i have done in the past so i figured why not jack this one up get it a little dirty.....and since im single now who knows what might happen if i had a blacked out taco lifted a few feet off the ground i just might get lucky. i have my mind set on a tacoma pre runner just gotta figure out what options i want. as for year im going with 2nd gen dont really mind what year as long as the price is right. i have read the forums for a few weeks now and you guys are some interesting charachters let me tell ya lol i think ill fit right in here in TW. looking forward to sinking my roots in here. I dont feel like buying a new truck for a long long time. my Dirty dodge went past 200k without any major work done at all hoping the rumors are true and i wont have to worry about a thing with the taco. is that a good inough introduction????:)

    hmmm so i guess the closest to true ram air you can get is the voltec ram air intake? sooo im still looking at some different tacos anything i should look for. i plan on lifting it 3" but is ther a better package that is already lifted or needs less work to lift than others. i have no clue about lifting trucks or tacos for that matter.:D

    6 lug i would assume that was talking about the lug pattern of the rims. awkward you mention that. i got a set of 6 lug 20's that came off my 98 dodge dakota any chance they have the same lug pattern.... they are 6 lug 4.5" i do believe but im out to sea right now and cant really look at them.
