    Man i wish i had more time for TW you guys are ridiculous. Thanks for the love and the criticism. Its helpful all around. Ive always enjoyed making videos and love that i have the opportunity to share what i am up to regardless of whether or not people enjoy it. As far as "Selling out" I will agree i did and still do at times. Trust me its pretty hard not to with the way some of these companies shower you with stuff. For a normal dude a lot like you guys Its fun and was a way i could build the Tacoma of my dreams and it helped me create content. If i didnt have any other ideas that week i would do a product related video. I started all of this as a regular TW Member and always dreamed of building a DefconBrix style Tacoma. Ive never lied or tried to sell any one on a product that i thought was complete garbage and i have received tons of stuff that i choose to not even share because its crap or the company simply didnt line up with my values. Ive also always been open and honest about getting sponsorships i dont try to hide it like a lot of people in the industry. I just take what i can get and share it if i think its cool and think you guys would think its cool. I thought it would be fun to see just how far you could mod a Tacoma.

    But at this stage i can see the damage it does to the channel and i feel like im past that stage in my Youtube career. Im always trying to hold my self accountable and trying to look back at each quarter to see if there is anywhere i could improve to make the whole experience of making Youtube videos more enjoyable and recently i decided that i am sick of working for all these companies and that i just want to get back to making the videos that i enjoy making. Ultimately that means less Tacoma videos which is what most people want to see, without sponsors and adds i simply dont have the money or the desire to build the truck further. I still have some cool mods left to install on it though not all of its sponsored. I haven't mentioned this anywhere else but i recently bought a +4.5 Long Travel Kit
    (not sponsored)for it just to see if i can pull it off with some 37 inch tires.:eek:

If people don’t like ur videos they don’t need to watch them. Me personally and lots others love them! Keep doing what your doing! People get jealous and jealously normally shows as anger! Thanks for the great content can’t wait to see more!

    Keep doing videos if that's what you like to do. I've seen some of your videos and I've enjoyed watching them.

    Not a subscriber and won't be, as I don't 'follow people' but this seems like a straight up honest post. ^

    I've bumped into you YT channel a couple times and most recently your review of the incredibly overpriced RZR Pro XP.
    Fun video, and I'm still trying to sell myself on one, but man that dollar figure is hard to swallow.

    Best of luck, seriously.

    I'd like to see Maxx test drive more 4x4 trucks...I know you tried to test drive a Chevy Colorado or whatever they call that thing...I follow another YT channel of some guys here in the Carolinas who test drive sports cars mostly and somehow dealership let them do it and post the vids...Maxx any chance you could hook something like this up? Could bring in lots of viewers.

    We have 20+ acres behind us with a homing pond and the geese, herons, ducks, and all manner of critters are always doing their thing back there. A pair of hawks nest on the far side and hatch one a year I think.

    They must be feeding well because the latest is getting huge. Too bad they are developing the total 40 acres. Keeping the pond but all the open space is turning into houses. Hope the hawks stick it out, but their hinting ground just went bye bye.

    I don’t know you in any way. Never even knew that I’ve watched one of your videos before reading this thread. Think it was a 5.29 gear video maybe? Anyway, watched another video just a second ago for top 5 mods from a day ago.

    Long story in quick version, your videos are fine. The top mod one was informative and seemed like some honest info even if some of the mentioned products were sponsored (?).

    Only reason I comment is because you mentioned about the community here. Unfortunately so many here are so extremely negative on an everyday basis. On top of that the maturity level is quite low for someone who can afford these trucks. Surely not this many people have wealthy parents which would make sense though with such comments as I read non stop.

    Anyway, from an individual who doesn’t subscribe to YouTube videos, I’d watch another video you made if it interested me at the time. Take care and don’t let negative folks make you the same. Folks like that are a disease!

    I've watched a few of your videos in the past and they were good and genuine. Just watched your military trailer vid and gave you a like and subscribe.

    Don't listen to the hate and keep up the good work

    Max, I've really enjoyed your videos of your truck (learned a lot), adventures, and Carol, as have my teenage boys! You try hard and are honest. Keep it up!
