    Hey all my name is Rich and here is a little about me and my 2 trucks. It started almost 3 years ago when I leased a 2007 tacoma when they were running a $250 a month lease program. I talked them down to $225 a month. My dad loved my truck so much that he bought a speedway blue double cab long bed 2wd truck about 4 months after mine. Mine is a red double cab short bed to be honest the reason I leased was I just started a new job and I was flat broke. I didnt have the money to really have payments more then 250 a month. After a year in I got a job in the union as a R@D man making great money I paid all my debits off including a 15k credit card. As of now I am debit free!! :D Ok I know this is long and drawn out but there is a reason I am telling you this. Now fast foward to feb 2nd 2010.... My dad past away in his sleep. before that I was in the process of looking to buy another tacoma since my lease is up in March. Well since my father had his truck I am taking over his truck and keeping it for something to remember him by. So already I have washed and waxed the truck. I have debadged the whole truck and bought an Aries Bull bar and 2500K fog lights. I am in the process of looking for the best 3" lift kit so far I have been looking at the OME kit from Toyotec and trying to find out if I can fit 20x9 wheels with just the 3" lift kit with out rubbing issues. I want to make sure I can still pull the 19' flats boat that my father and I bought together. I love the truck so much knowning that it was my dads favorite truck makes it that much better to me. I will attach a few pictures of the truck and me and one of my best friend Joes 2003 Acura Cl-Type S 6 speed white with black leather (1 out of 15 ever made in that color combo). Thanks for reading and an info would be great thanks.
