    Rick would hope we'd be celebrating this time with jokes. It's great medicine for our souls to make sure we do what he'd want Scott. I'm with you. I'd follow anyone with 4 posts anywhere Brother.

    I am so sorry to hear about Rick's passing and want to express my condolences, and apologies for not finding out until now. Rick was always responsive and provided some great insights, perspectives and will be missed.

    Yesterday i jump in my truck and grab the Icon shifter knob and it hit me. Rick has sent me his old TRD knob form his second gen. and I passed it on later when I went to update the look to an Icon, which I blacked out. Rick told me he would send me his old Icon. Instead he ordered me anew one and sent it to me. Still playing with his knob daily......................That is all

    I was actually thinking, instead of just giving our condolences maybe we could or should write the ways the Rick touched us individually.


    My story is;
    I have the Icon shift knob that I also had given to me from Rick. He had posted it up for free and sent it to me. A while later, we were at a meet together and he noticed my rear panel on my softopper was so scratched up you couldn't even see through it. That night I got a PM from Rick asking me for my address. I told him NO don't you do it! His response was "you know I have your address in a PM don't make me look for it!" A few days later I had a new rear panel for my topper sent to me by him. The last time I personally saw him I was buying my traction mats from him. Of course he was trying to give stuff to me that wasn't included in the deal. I actually had to mention to him to stop and that I still owed him some drinks for the topper panel he had gotten for me.

    Going back to the 1st time I met him was at a meet in a Walmart parking lot. We didn't talk much but he had said to me "when I get rid of my truck I don't know what I'll get next". I said "get rid of it? It's almost brand new" he said "you don't know me, I never keep a vehicle for more than a couple of years and I never get the same vehicle twice!" Well he kept his second gen for something like 5 years and he traded it in for a 3rd gen. The Taco bug had hit Rick hard! Lol


    RIP Rick. You are sorely missed!



    If you have a story about Rick please tell it so his family can fully understand his impact to so many of us!

    This becomes more heartbreaking each day. A sudden loss of life is always tragic but it appears that the earth lost a true good soul :(

    That's a great idea. It's because of Rick's effort in setting up the Dirt King UCA GB that I'm running their awesome set up.

    This is horrible news, condolences to you and your family. RIP Rick. :(

    God this thread is a LOVE it HATE it tread!
    I Love coming here to see all the good folks here talking about how Rick moved them in someway.
    But then I absolutely Hate coming here because I miss his sense of humor! He made me laugh hysterically so much that I would cry like I’m doing now.
    Guys if you ever get down in the dumps PLEASE reach out to someone, anyone. I wish Rick would have that way he still be making us laugh instead of cry.
    RIP my friend RIP…

    My Rick Story:

    As two resident TW squatters both from the north east, him and I regularly came in contact throughout various TW threads tacoma/bicycle/NE related.

    We would interact a decent amount. The good the bad and the ugly, just like TW serves it up right lol...???

    He would love to spit ball ideas around getting others input, I know everyone here has gotten the random what do you think about this PM from Rick right??

    This one time, he called me an ashole, lol that was funny but it killed me he was insulted... that was a good 45 min thread... But all in all we talked it out, and we both apologized for the misunderstanding...

    @RobP62 dont sell those wheels

    After the ahole wheel confusion incident, It was business as usual. Random PMs back and forth about racks and lifts and lights and colors galore...




    I loved how Rick would always jump in and tell someone they didnt have the 50 post min for Buy/Sale threads, but then he would forget to post a price or location or some other technically in his many for sale threads. It was always a great way to rib him a bit, and he always got a good laugh about being called out.

    He really was a good sport. Sensitive, as we all are on here... But he is one of the TW locals. And for that, this really hits home. I can see myself in Rick.


    he is shredding down on us now

    I just combed through my PMs and found a chat Rick and I had back in 2017 when he was selling a super cool tube amp. At the time I was in the process of buying and installing my LT on the FJ, so I had like $.03 to my name. He not only offered to hold on to it for a longggg time, but offered me the NE homie price. I ended up not getting a chance to buy it, I wish I did, but his generosity was unfathomable.

    I met Rick in a roundabout way. I'd bought and installed a heated mirror kit on my truck that's made by @Up2NoGood, and was contacted a few weeks later by Up2NoGood asking me if I'd be willing to help another member, who lived in the next town over do an install on his truck. I agreed and he introduced me to Rick. When Rick and I met up to do the install I was blown away by how immaculate his truck was, everything shined. That heated mirror kit was just the first of several projects I'd help Rick with over the years, I feel fortunate to have met, and worked beside him.
