    Hi all!

    I recently lost my previous Gen-1 Taco to a tornado, and so what did I do but go out and buy another.

    My primary reasons for loving my Taco are 1.) I live in my truck, and 2.) I live in Arkansas and serve the whole south-central region of the country with volunteer disaster response, as a hobby. The extended cab Taco is a perfect platform for both of these, for someone on a budget.

    Over the next several months, I will make several budget-minded upgrades to my stock truck for the purpose of living in it and responding to disasters, and I will post some of my developments here.

    My truck is hereby dubbed "DIRT." Disaster Relief Taco. So I may engage in a fair amount of "dirty talk" (dirty tac?) here.

    Many of you on this forum have well-conceived, well-built trucks that are much better suited to these purposes. But my operative word here is "budget", as I am currently "homeless", without regular (paid) work, which is partly intentional, for the freedom to do what I enjoy.

    See yall in the threads!

    Welcome from Oklahoma! Prepare for a million post saying that you'll need to post some pics, which I will agree with. If you don't have any it'd be a good idea to go get some real quick! :D

    Welcome. Did the tornado throw stuff at your old truck, or did the tornado pick it up and fling it into another county?
