    Wow.. I am really impressed with how welcoming the people of Tacoma World are.. I used to be a member of a Cobalt website, and it took alot of BSing in the off topic forums to get noticed.. People here def make me feel welcome and willing to help

    Has anyone used or know someone that has the budbuilt skid, looks like it will do a hell of a job to protect the entire truck and appears to be pretty easy to install
