    Yota4lyfe skipped all the midtravel BS and was the first Tacoma to be built. Basically motivating alot of other tacoma owners to go LT. Here is his awesome build http://www.dezertrangers.com/vb/showthread.php?t=80740

    DMZ Fabrication built his truck and therefore I followed.

    I saw a truck exactly like yours. And I mean EXACTLY! I drove up to it to talk to whoever it was and a girl popped her head up from the backseat. So I just drove off.

    I cant stress enough how much Ive enjoyed this build, especially since DMZ is building it. If any of you guys have any fabrication needs you should give DMZ a call 951 371 8500 Norco, Ca (Socal)

    Once you call him, you'll know why I am so happy...Not only is his work phenomenal... his customer service is by far the best ive ever experienced. I believe he has numerous years as a master tech as well as a fabricator. So he is proficient in fabrication as well as other things like electrical etc. So i trust him with my truck whenever i bring it to him. Not like he does a great job on the bumper and fcks up on wiring the lights. He is very professional.

    Good Fab is always great, but its a plus when you deal with a nice guy on the otherside of the line. Just call, tell him you saw my build, inquire and youll see what I mean.

    Just found this site. so hopefully i can make it to the runs, i usually frequent ttora.com and Dezertrangers.com
