    men, good afternoon.

    I am 1LT CLark Tucker and I am currently deployed in Afghanistan. Been here about 6 months and am leaving to head home for R&R (mid tour leave) at the end of july. when i am home, i am buying a brand new 2011 or 2012 if tey are out yet, tacoma.

    just wanted to stop by and introduce myself. i have a feeling i will be here alot and you guys will see me alot. when we arent running mission, i think i will be reading on here and hanging out in tacoma world.

    LT

    thank you gentlemen. i cant wait for the next 2 months to come and go, so i can go home and buy my first tacoma. its my dream truck.

    always told myself once i commissioned and deployed, when i had the money, i would buy my truck cash money and thats exactly what i cant wait to do.

    you should wait till you get back for good. its not good to let your new truck just sit for months at a time. plus itll be newer when you get back too!
