    This is the latest in a long line of Taco's... bought it in January after trading my 08 Access cab for a 4Runner last August. Needs a little TLC, but no rust and overall in pretty good shape considering it has 230K on the clock. Just bought the General Grabber AT2's yesterday, and like them so far after about 150 miles on the highway.

    Future "mod"s:

    Paint wheels, bumpers, door handles, and grille flat black

    Add factory black fender flares

    So what do you guys think of my POS? :cool:

    Thats funny. I guess I only consider it my "beater" because it is a 3rd vehicle that I only plan on playing in. :D

    Outside looks better than the inside too. :eek:

    I thought about it, but my plan is something like what AK47 said above your post. I may flat black the whole damn truck.
