    Hello, just joined mostly for the group by on braided stainless lines. It's a nice forum though so I'm sure I'll be lurking around. I'm not a frequent poster though, just when I've got something to say.

    My truck is a 2009 double cab long bed TRD sport 4X4 with tow package in black sand pearl. My mods or add-ons so far:

    Linex in the bed
    Front window tint
    Weathertech floor liners, vent shades, and bug guard
    Wet Okole seat covers all around (charcoal and black)
    UWS toolbox
    Mild stereo upgrades (components and a powered sub)
    Added locks to bed compartments
    Extra D-rings in the bed
    Bad boy air horn (wasn't worth it, need train horns)
    N-Fab 6 steps
    Bed mat (cut from a tractor supply horse stall mat)

    Just ordered braided stainless brake lines.


    I like old VW's too and have a couple bugs, a camper, and a dune buggy.

    Y'all can check out my photobucket if you want to see pics of the VW's and a few of my tacoma too. There is an album for each bug, the buggy (with my wife and I on our wedding day) and the beat up old VW westy.

    Welcome buggsy! I had a '688 Beetle that I put tons of miles on, and it was reliable as a good dog.

    @Mike686, that depends on the day, time of year, and who's visiting :)

    Yeah, there's usually a few bugs around. Right now there's just a slightly molested chasis on the car hauler, and one hidden behind a privacy fence that you might see. The fence is getting pretty rough though so it's not really all that hidden. I really need to replace that fence, maybe that will be tomorrow's project if this rain goes away.

    The buggy and my wife's project is in the garage.

    Yes and No, I'm up in Clinton near the second gate of Andrews AFB, kinda near S. MD hospital and Surrats Rd. That's after the 301/5 split, and I'm not right on the main road.

    You might be thinking of a fella named Todd who lives just a bit up Rt. 301 from Brandywine, right on 301 on the right hand side. He's got a seafoam/mint green and white vert and a brown standard beetle he calls "Special" among a few other things that come and go. He and I have bought and traded a couple times and he goes to a lot of the bug shows too.
