    This is my first Tacoma, but not my first Toyota. I had an early 80's (Pre Tacoma) a few years ago, but sold it. Got this truck trading car stereo and labor from when I owned Carolina Car Stereo and Security. Bad economy, bad location=closed store. LOL.

    Currently unemployed but finishing school for Automotive Systems Technology and Auto Body Repair.

    Served almost 8 years in US Army with 2 tours in the desert, Honorable Discharge in DEC 2003. Married 10 years and 2 children. One 5 year old girl, and a 1 year old handful of a boy. HA.

    Heres some pics, hope its not sacrilege to you off roaders. I like ALL Tacomas for the most part, not just slammed ones. LOL.
