    Hello to all my fellow Toyota Tacoma owners/lovers. Just wanted to introduce myself, my name is Ryan and I'm from Guyana, South America. I have always been a Toyota Pick Up owner but recently acquired my first Tacoma.

    Some of my previous rides....

    This is how she sat when i picked here up....

    Bought the Taco from a mining exploration company here in Guyana, came equipped with Old Man Emu suspension, Safari Snorkel, Mickey Thompson wheels and BFG mud terrain tyres.

    Did some cleaning up and servicing, she needs a lot of TLC

    Made my roof rack and installed some Vision X LED light bars :D

    How she sits today

    Still have a ton of work to do to her, we came across quite a bit of rust on the chassis so I will have to change that soon along with a full bushing change and ball joints, steering ends and so on... But she runs great and is a blast to drive. Loving every moment. :)
