    Theres a big issue about this going on at toyotanation, vendors not participating or helping the members out, that us members have to come up with group buys to get a better deal, and that the vendors get mad cause we are not giving them the business would be cool if the vendors actually participated and gave members a deal so that we can definately give them good business. If we can get some vendors here and actually want to be involved would be nice.

    Wow.. all it took was for me to send him a PM on the Fj Forum..tell him what i was looking for.. he told me what i needed.. didnt try to sell me on some over priced chit i wouldnt really need and then on top of it, gave me about a nice little discount.

    The best thing about it was he was actually providing me with the info, pictures, and test results i needed to tell another Vendor to piss off because he was trying to stick me with buying extra things that i really didnt need.

    I will def be lifting my Truck with Toytec when i get back to the states it would be great to see them be a vendor on TW to help us all get a deal on the things we need.

    you can't just snap your fingers and expect results. I'd be willing to bet that Bob has a real job that pays real money and requires real work.

    I created a group buy forum to post group buys on here. Vendors are welcome to join the site and offer deals in there. I can't hunt them down and make them join though. As they join, I'll make vendor specific forums if necessary. I won't charge for them to offer GBs on here (for the time being! :evil:) so would be to their advantage.

    I have contacted a few vendors i have done buisness with to see how they deside what forums to be apart of, and invited them to join us here at Tacoma World.

    I suggest that other members here do the same.. if you hve done buisness with different online Truck companies.. try to get them in here and offer us all some deals

    A vendor is a person the reps a company that sells products we are in need of, they offer deals, and let us know about new products that we would use for our Trucks.

    over on my FJ forum, I talked to Doug from Toytec he provided me with info and research that showed what his products did in testing and other peoples vehicles and offered me a discount on the lift kit i purchased for my wife.

    I emailed him and suggested he come check us out join our site and share his knowledge and products
