    Hi Everyone!

    I am currently in the military stationed in England. I have 2 months left here and will be relocating to Alaska. I am trying to buy a 09 Taco DC, 4x4, TRD Off-road w/JBL. Hopefully this all works out and I can drive my new Taco to Alaska from TN in a couple of months. Looking foward to chatting with yall.
