    2010 ACCESS CAB SR5 OFF ROAD PKG
    My name is Bruce, I came across this site last week after I bought my 10' Tacoma. It's a white access cab, 4x4. Needless to say it's a vast improvement over the Jeep Rubicon I had for the last 6 years. I don't really plan to do any mods except a tonneau cover and a better set of tires but time will tell.
    What lured me in here as I was looking around was the threads on other topics besides the trucks that caught my interest. Dogs, I've got 3 coonhounds my wife and I have rescued, a mother and daughter team of Black and Tans and a male Bluetick. Guns, I've been shooting since I was 6 years old. Motorcycles, my current ride is a 08' Kawasaki ZX-14.
    As the name states, I'm a Toolmaker by trade, bare with me as far as posting pictures, I'm a lot better with a Bridgeport than a computer

    Upon a simple search I assume he means this

    http://www.bpt.com

    unless he knows his way around Bridgeport CT really well.

    Thanks for the welcome. You got it Jason, a horizontal mill, I wish I had one in my garage, you can make anything on them. Bridgeport, CT, no I was a Army brat and have been a lot of places in my life but never there.
    I would really like to post some pictures of some of the equipment I was involved with but never took any and in some cases I just couldn't. My first 11 years were with the aircraft and aerospace industry. One of the things we built was the equipment used to build the landing gear for the B1-B bomber. I got to spend some time doing field service work at NASA, the Redstone arsenel in Huntsville AL, Boeing and a lot of other places. My next 12 years was spent in the Automotive end of it. Not too impressive. Building and installing assembly lines, building front end alignment machines that sort of thing.
    Yeah, I know I said "no mod's" but the warden, ah, I mean Mrs. was watching at the time.

    haha about the warden. The principle at my school is Mr. Ward. I bet you could guess what we call him. That sounds really exciting/interesting doing work for NASA and working on the B1's.
