    That’s good to hear. We just ordered a black one. I think it will look good on his truck. He’s psyched.

    Seeing how long I can keep stock(ish) OVTuned
    Remember, my brother was the last one to ride it. He swapped the seat and pedals... if I had my old ones, Id have given them to you.
    Hope you get a lot of miles out of it. I did, and I'm happy to pass it to someone that will.

    On the truck note, IF you sell the truck, I will relieve you of that softopper.

    On another note...
    I was given another solid offer on my "other truck"... I hunted for this for a while..., but, money is money.
    The best offer so far is for more then a paid,,, and will cover everything done including maintenance for the last year, and I still need to pull the sliders..
    I'm really torn...
    Also knowing that if I DO sell, I need to put money into the Tacoma...
    It needs help on road trips..carrying the weight. Otherwise, with the tune, and keeping it at 72mph, it pulled down 21+mpg... I'd call that good for a road tripper, that is still beach capable.

    Never considered a single vehicle for a family of 5...
    Even if it is just until the market tanks,...

    Any input?

    You get the moonshot? For headlights, I'd just go with the uprated halogen setup, maybe paint your lamps or do the 2015 Pro lamps. Any of the aftermarket stuff is going to be a step back in output.

    I should clarify... I do have a work vehicle. So, me being at work won't affect anything. And there are a few bikes as well...
    And only my wife and I drive.

    I agree with @jconn47 if you can manage the logistics of it, and financially it makes sense, sell it off, wait about 6-8 months for the market to correct itself and go buy something again. Just my opinion, but I don't think the prices are going to stay like this and I think you'll be able to buy the truck back and still pocket some cash once things settle down.

    Amen. I think prices will take a bit longer to settle down, you have supply from entire process lines but also chip shortages. I think prices will stick pretty high for a while.

    I'm in the same boat - if the price is right, I'm ditching it and getting a POS hatchback for a few years. Especially if we want to move to Austin -- ditch the salt vehicles before we go.

    Old Orchard Beach - carnival, and food. Rocco's pizza if you like NY style.
    Hampton/Salisbury - Tripoli pizza

    If I didn't need my truck and wasn't in the middle of repairing my credit after the divorce I'd try to see what I could get for it.

    Salem, NH - right off exit 1 on 93 they built the tuscan village, it's commercialized but it's a pretty cool place and a BIG step for Salem, wife's family is in Salem.

    Portland, Old Port - pretty cool, and the seatport restaurants, less kid friendly though. I'd say with 3&5, OOB is kind of a good stopping point in the drive and good for the kiddos. The amusement park has kid rides and the food is good. Not healthy, but good. Not cheap, but good (if you know where to go). Lisa's Pizza is thick greasy slop. They need to use styrofoam plates otherwise it'll disintegrate paper ones. Rocco's is NY style, that's where I worked good place. Pier fries does them right, everywhere else does them frozen. I THINK Pier fries uses peanut oil though, if there's a peanut allergy. Rocco's for fried dough, Dewey's for any fried seafood. It's been a while since I've been there and really seen around. There were a few gift shops up the hill, and a few sweets shops. Dickinson's is like willy wonka's chocolate factory, it's way out of place and a real cool place there if you got a sweet tooth (or two kids). There is (was? probably is) a Dairy Queen, but across from that there's another ice cream shop (at least was) inside in the corner unit of the victorian, air conditioned etc. Unfortunately my go-to for ice cream (Rinaldi's) is closed now, they closed up shop last year.

    Hampton, Salisbury - they're all similar New England beach towns, but I know Old Orchard.

    Road trip with a 3 and 5 year old? Don't worry, they'll tell you when to stop :laughing:
    Same here. If I didn't need my truck for a bit, I'd dump it and buy a replacement later in the year. I could sell mine for close to 10k more than I paid, but I'd have to buy another one at these ridiculous prices so it's not worth it.

    About time you added one to that fancy bumper. How's the frame, you get it patched up yet?

    We lived in Salem 02-06 and it’s so different now.

    BIL lives in Amesbury so we frequent the Salisbury/Newburyport/Hampton areas.

    maybe we’ll stop in York or OOB for lunch. Can’t check into the campground til 3

    We did a road trip to Maryland pre-covid and they both did very well. Only to have both wake up in the middle of the night the first night with ear infections and drive all the way home the following day. Felt like CT took 6 hours by itself…

    The kids would probably like the Arcade in York. My kids love it. It's paid parking, but it's not expensive. If you want some great seafood for decent pricing check out Hobbs in Wells. That's a go-to for us when we're at the in-laws in OGT.

    Were you out at the Brown/Green Log cabin yesterday? I was going to stop by but we had to get back to the house after taking the kids for a ride around the lake/ swim at the beach to meet my SIL who's dog we were watching for the weekend.

    This, if mine was in high demand/value I think I would just buy a war wagon since I'm home for at least 6 more months.

    No kidding! I was in SHS 08-11. Yeah, the racetrack area is way different. The rest of the town is kind of similar, a lot of development along 28 near the mall though.
