    So it all started when i was 15...I had to have a truck as my first vehicle...
    1991 Nissan Hardbody SEv6 4x4 5spd!!

    Well 2 years later I moved to Florida and it eventually turned into a Landscape/work truck [​IMG] and from the salt up in Vermont started to deteriorate over time as usual.

    So I moved on and gave the truck to my brother back in New York for a plow truck until the day she died.

    Now onto number 2. Father purchased a Chevy P/U in 2002 brand new! Rarely driven...so I bought that from him in 2006 with 30k
    2003 Chevrolet Silverado Z71 4x4 5.3!!

    Well that lasted a few years and I just couldn't afford gas anymore, I had my fun as seen in video below..soo it gets put away for the time being with 70k in 2009

    So I decided to step up my game and go on the hunt for my most desired truck..A Tacoma!
    January 2010: 1996 V6 SR5 4x4 5Spd!

    What did you do with the red '96 Taco? Why'd you chose to buy a '99 AND a '96?

    And gas was too expensive on the Chevy... so you bought two more trucks? :eek:

    ^^ I hope he got his money back (or more) then. Buying and selling right away is usually the easiest way to lose money on a vehicle.

    I like the black 99. The 05+ wheels look good on it. But it looks like you need an AAL or Shackles in the rear...

    haha yea man i was suprised only had the red taco for 6 months and flipped it for more than i bought it! Loved it though..

    And the chevy is probably the best since it has the G80 rear end (locking differential) and i installed the same to the front and its loaded with oil&tranny cooler with tow and snow plow package...its got everything except leather..no option left out! and its nasty at stock height off road...I've yet to get stuck with it..except for my dad high centering it in some 49" iroc ruts from a previous truck HAHA but i pulled him out with my old Jeep in 2wd! but nontheless its a badass Chevy!
