    Truck was 198 miles old (5 days) when I left on the first road trip. Went to the rally race in NY. Truck rides so nice. Here is a photo:

    So when I am filling up with gas on the way home on Sunday, I noticed my fender is scuffed and dented. :mad: Yep, some jackass backed into me at some point Sat. night or Sun. morning. Got scuffed enough that it'll need painting.

    Anyway, here is the link to the photos I took of the race: http://www.onalimbracing.com/photos/2009_Rally_New_York_USA/

    They forgot to put the "Tacoma" badge on it. I'm trying to decide whether to keep it debadged, or have him put it on Monday. What do you think?

    Debadge!
    Love that color too.
    Sorry about the Ahole hitting your truck. I've got a big dent on my passenger access door cause of another a-hole.

    Great pics BTW, got an adrenaline rush just looking at them. Love rally and love the pics of the silver Sub, sliding out.
    Be careful out there, that's a dangerous job/hobby.

    Debadged ! Glue Gone & some fishing line debadged my truck all around. Looks clean & that totally sucks. $500 deductible could have been spent on mods. Sorry to hear about that. I remember when I first got my truck, some prick gave me a door ding. I noticed it right away . grrrrr.
