    Hey, Name's Travis, from SD. just joined up, but I've had my Taco since January.

    Its an 01 Double cab, white, 2" lift sitting on 265's, hand made light bar, and an open rear diff :mad:

    Used to be a nissan guy for years.....then decided tacoma's were far more appealing than Frontiers when it came time to upgrade from my '93 Pathfinder with 250,000 miles on it

    Lemme know if there's anything I should know about my truck

    Yeah, I've got my ICAR cert for almost every sheet metal GMAW weld (steel and aluminum) I dont have any Certs for TIG tho, Had to pay for those out of pocket and lacked the cash although I can handle most any steel or ALuminium on TIG

    I spent most of my time at school learning hand forming steel and paint

    I've had a few projects in the past few years from a 35 Olds to a 67 Mini to my own 80 Datsun 720 (redid 65% of the sheetmetal on the bed and floor) And about a year ago I bobbed and dovetailed the bed of my brother's 83 yota

    I paint scoreboards now, as Body shops don't pay as well as the company I work for now :D

    So if you guys got autobody, metal fab, or Paint questions, I'm more than Willing to help you out :thumbsup:
