    Whats up everyone. My name is Scott and i've been in love Tacomas since I was 16. U.S Marine Infantryman who just got back from Iraq a few weeks ago. The first thing I did when I got home was get my first brand new truck, a Tacoma quad cab long bed sport 4x4. Im still at the phase where I walk outside and just look at it and say 'wow...I own that. It was a hard decision to not get the Off road package, but the lack of a quad cab longbed and that im definately going to be on streets alot more than off road. Also i've been drooling of the tires,lift, etc; etc; im going to add on as as soon as I can.
    Anyway this forum was extremly helpful in making my decision and plans for it in the future, and I am looking forward to being a part of it.
    I
    One last thing. I worked as a salesman at a Chevrolet and Toyota dealership before enlisting, so I would be glad to offer any advice and suggestion for anyone thinking about going to a dealership

Check out the Wheel/tire Thread, and Suspension&Lifts for more pricing. Use the Search a lot, its like a Gennie, your wish is its command. Goodluck!

    Thanks for the welcome ya'll, I feel right at home already. Proud to announce that I went up to Croatan State park and took my Truck off road off the first time, and had a hell of a time. ( work on posting a pic tomorrow). Spent the rest of the weekend cleaing it, planning my build, and fighting off attacks from all the Chevy and Ford enthusiats I live with.


    -jhodge im at Camp Lejeune, right on the coast.
    Again, thanks again for the welcome everyone. Time for me to figure out how im gonna buy all these parts now...
