    I am a Marine, currently stationed in North Carolina. I bought my 2009 Toyota Tacoma brand new last october and I love it! Runs like a champ, outperforms the full size trucks my buddies have offroad, and gets better gas mileage at the same time, what more could you ask for? Currently stock but I plan on doing some mods to make it (more) trailworthy. It is an access cab, 4x4 v6 with the 6 speed manual transmission, which is the setup of the Tacoma I've wanted since high school.
    If anyone else is from the eastern NC area, could you let me know if you know any good off roading locations? All we have around base is the Croatan and you aren't technically supposed to be off roading there under penalty of fines. Thanks in advance!

    Will do! I forgot my camera charging cord the last time I went home on leave and still waiting on my parents to mail it out here. Every time you go home, something has to be forgotten!

    Thats the only picture I currently have. Did some mudding with a friend, ended up having to pull his F150 out of a hole I had gone through! To top it off he has all terrain tires and I'm still running the stock dunlops!

    Thank you for your greetings!
