    well this morning about 5:30 or so my dad comes into my room and wakes me up....he said that he got his truck stuck in the ditch behind the garage....his truck being a Duramax 3500 HD 4x4. Now remember this is the same guy that told me that i needed to get a "real truck". so i looked up and simply replied, get somebody with a "real truck" to pull you out. :D long story short my v6 PRERUNNER pulled his "real truck" out. with ease actually. talking about a heartbreaker (for him) and i will continue to give him HELL till he admits that the taco is more of a truck than his:D sorry just thought i would share this with yall thought it was pretty great to be honest. just one more reason to love my taco :thumbsup:

    Ha that's a funny story. My buddy has one of those Duramax lifted and all kinds of stuff that with the cost of the truck has 60k in it. He wants a Taco bad but the dealership offered him 21k so I think he's just going to keep it or sell it on his own.

    The picture would have been great to have. You could have framed it. The next time your dad makes fun of your Taco, you could pull the picture out.
