    hi y'all, i have just sold my 09' JK wrangler rubicon 6hrs ago, and wire transfered the money to my brother in Texas to buy and ship me a 11' TRD sport dble cap, in BLACK!! Toyota here in Korea only sells sedans. But I wanted TACO really bad. So i've decided to just purchase it in US, and ship it here to KOREA. As far as I know, there are roughly 4 tacomas here. I will be the 5th if my brother rush. I know it will cost a lot for me to import taco from the states (the price will be almost 45% higher from MSRP after paying taxes and registering here). But still I want it bad, really bad.

    I've found tons of useful and thankful infos, and tips here. Which means I have to study it from the beginning.

    All I have left after selling my JK.

    I did not sell those tires because I was thinking maybe I could install these on TACO.
    Anyway,
    So please welcome the stranger from the east asia.

    BTW, please understand if any of my grammar is wrong, english is not my mother language.
