    I picked up my 2011 TRD Sport two weeks ago, and I love it. Just thought I'd introduce myself and say hi.

    The night I picked him up. That's my old Colorado in the pic. Too bad my yakima racks don't work with the Taco's bed.

    I drove to Dallas the first day I had the truck to drop off a bike restoration project. The fuel economy wasn't fantastic, but I'll deal with it.

    [​IMG]

    I had to adapt my Thule bike rack since the bed rails have too much of a chamfer to allow the compression fit rack to work.

    [​IMG]

    Custom nuts for the channel. I need to do these again in aluminum, or have some made out of stainless. These will do for now though.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I degadged the truck and blacked out the front emblem with plastidip. Oh, and the Nfab light bar. The light bar is quality stuff. Now for some 700ff Hella HID's. :)

    [​IMG]

    There is a ton of info on this forum, so I'll be around for a while.

    Thanks for the comments. I primarily ride road bikes, but just finished building an old diamondback mountain bike. My main bike is a 94 Trek touring bike. I'll be doing a 75 mile ride Sunday, getting ready for my third MS150 in April.

    I've been in Alvin since 94, and moved downtown 2 years ago.

    I'll be sure to check out the BS thread.

    I mountain bike more than road bike, but I'm doing my 7th MS 150 in April.

    Need to be training much more than I have been...good luck to you.
