    Had the pleasure of joining my friend MJ today with a group you guys at Hollister. Had a great time with a bunch of good people so I thought I would register on here to keep in touch.

    My name is James, I used to drive a 2003 Supercharged Frontier CC

    First time offroad at Frank Rhaines in Patterson

    I actually sold it at the end of last year, with a wedding on the horizon I wanted the extra cash. I am stuck between a Tacoma and 4runner as my next truck.

    I am more into Camping/Overlanding than anything.. so thats pretty much the basics.. Will be cool to finally hang around some Toyota's for a change ;)

    Thanks

    Well see!

    Thanks!

    wasssuuup MJ, no need to convince, no disrespect to my nissan friends, but I wanted a Tacoma from the start. Just got a good deal from family so I took the Frontier

    White Tacomas are the best!

    I am sure I will be!

    The pickup is essential for obvious reasons, its a more multipurpose choice..

    The 4runner would be more for the space, I want to bring my niece and nephew around and when camping the wife and I sleep in the back...

    So if a 4runner is the choice I may get a trailer as well..

    I have quite a while to decide.
