    This is for the military folk and first responders.

    Giveaway time!!
    This is for the vets, active duty, reserve, retired, leo, med, and fire.
    Now through the end of October, we are taking submissions from you. Two pics, one of you doing the work flow, lets see those shots of you pressed and dressed, or in bdu/acus holding things that go pew, or driving those slow, bouncy, noisy HEMMT. On a beat or saving kitties? Let's see that too. Then another with your Tacoma. be it camping, wheeling, whatever about you and your Tacoma that means something to you. Then tell us a little about you. We want to know what sets you apart and why you should get some gear.

    Please keep in mind we are going to share/post these, so please only send stuff you are ok with us posting of you (we are totally ok with holding a pew machine like its a "member" of yourself haha)

    Then when it is all said and done, we have a some awesome folks pick our winners, then the grand winner gets to pick their prize. That's right, you pick any of our standard parts, and we will send it your way. Its just a big thank you to the folks who are the basis of what we are about.
    *the 'fine print'
    - must be a part we offer sorry, no Dodge ram stuff, etc we will send it to you and you can do what you choose sell, give away to a buddy, raffle it for your fire house, it's all good
    - must be a lower 48. While sliders and skids and racks can all ship generic ground, bumpers will need a commercial address or picked up at nearest FREIGHT terminal. - standard items are offered. Meaning, standard choice, not additional options. If you want Dom or a swingouts or additional options that's on the winner for the difference. But chat with us and we can work it out.
    If there is any questions please message us for clarification. Thank you all and good luck.
    Only open to military and first responders. You can message us here, email us, or post on IG for your submission. #warfabgaw
    Open for the next month.
    Thanks,

    We will post some more info on who is making selections in a few weeks.
    The more entries, the more we give away.
    No purchase required, it doesn't matter in the selection. It's two prior service folks, who do a lot of work with after service life, and new recruits. They are just looking for what stories speak to them. No requirements or criteria other than what's listed above. Just be you.

    Also, don't be afraid of not having a 3g truck. We have one entry that doesn't even own a Toyota, but his crew would use at a raffle for one of their events to support them. All for that kind of stuff.

    Just something that represents you from that time in life. One guy asked if he can send in a pic with him in a vet hat at an event he was at recently at his local American legion post. Im good with that too. We just want to share YOU guys. So its a matter of what YOU want people to see of your service time. If that makes sense. This is far less about us and what we want, and more about yall.

    Roger that, and thanks! We don't/didn't serve for discounts and freebees but it's always nice to see when someone appreciates our service.

    Of course. We just remember holidays celebrated weeks in advance because of deployments. Or stretching money to keep things floating. Sometimes it's fun to just get something for you. Everyone involved in our little operation grew up generations deep of military and civil service background, we appreciate what it takes. It's not much but we wanted to say thanks best way we could.

    Agreed! The bad thing about being retired is now I have to pay for my ammo!

    It's for first responders as well. Our first two entries were fire and LEO.
    It's not a contest of who is more worthy. All of ya kick ass and all are able to be a part.
    Plus. The more entries we get, the more we are going to give away....

    Id say for ease of tracking, a message here would be preferred if not tagged on the social platforms.

    Neat.

    Can I enter but sponsor a different truck? I honestly don't know how much more steel I can put on my truck, and I'd rather pay it forward to someone who would benefit more than me. That's why I ride the whambulance anyway.

    Cool on you guys for doing something like this.

    Absolutely. This whole thing is all about paying it forward. It's your prize, do what you want.
