    Definitely a good start. I like where you put the Tacoma on the tailgate I was thinking of doing something like that as well. I tested putting the Toyota logo under and didn't like that so I put the Tacoma logo there and didn't like it either but I like where you put it and I think that is where I'm gonna put mine! Good luck with the build can't wait to see moreeee

    Great truck dude! I love how you re-badged it. Never seen it done that way before. I also know where these pics were taken :D.

    Should only get cleaner. I'm very much a "have it and know you have it, but don't flaunt it" kind of person. I want this truck to be badass as hell, and I don't want anyone to be able to tell until I let it off the leash :)


    And in relation to that...does anyone know where to get tail-lights that don't look horrible? The factory ones are not inspiring when you're looking for elegance, and the aftermarket options are even worse.

    Seneca Rocks in that picture, but I've climbed all over NC and WV, as well as a two month stint in Arizona in 2007 (The Pit, Granite Mountain, Cochise, Groom Creek, Priest Draw, Paradise Forks, Oak Creek Overlook). Need to start making some raids into Kentucky and the TAG area, but deliverance-style hillbillies scare me.

    Done some ice and smaller peaks on the east coast. Heading to Mt. Whitney next summer with a partner of mine and hopefully Yosemite for some Grade V big wall/aid action in 2011.

    A couple moar samples from various trips:

    Whitney, from a pure technical perspective, does not seem that bad. The big wall stuff will be more challenging in terms of technique and skill. Whitney will be more of a physical endeavor, because there's a lot less oxygen up there.

    But we're gettin' sidetracked. Hopefully my grille gets here in the next couple days so I can re-align the thread within spec.

    Dude, if you ever get a chance, go to Indian Creek. That place has crack's for weeks, if not months. I spent about a month there a couple years ago. Cheap livin, and cheap beer. If your ever in Boulder, gimme a shout as I will be moving there at the end of this month. Be safe and keep up the good work on your truck
