    Hey all! I just got my TACOMA 3 days ago and I freakin dig it! Way better than my old truck (05 Chevrolet Colorado)...I plan on doing minor mods, but keeping it simple and clean at the same time. I look forward for all your guys help and advice you offer.

    Jason- What happened with your rented Jeep?- tearin up the road? nevermind, don't wanna know.
    Mymistress- I really don't know what the deal is with the lifts and stocker?! But when these people do put their BIG tires and rims on, they look freakin SIC.
    Thanks again for the welcomes

    response to why kauaian's got lifted taco's with stock tires.... most likely it was during the week you saw those, the reason is saving the mud/sand tires for the weekend... hunting/fishing no sense waste the rubber on the road out here they get eaten up. and the cost of shipping to hawaii is nuts so gotta save money somehow....

    ...Yeah tires are expensive. I think another reason why they have stockers at the moment is because they have a safety check due, and they can't get it coz of the tires sticking past the fenders...damnnn why is there so many cops out there nowadays?>
