    Good Morning

    great forum you guys got here.

    Just want to introduce myself before i get out of hand asking questions and following your builds since i enjoy builds myself.

    I just got a 06 4 door short bed Tacoma that will slowlly become "mine" but for now will be doing Motorcycle transportation duty.

    I'm new to this forum because i have been member of other forum (motorcycle mainly) for years. I'm a roadracing track instructor for local track and have been doing that since 2005.

    So, Thank you owners for such of great please to exchange ideas and information and Thank you members for sharing them.

    I already removed the sides from the brush guard becuase i don't like it at all so soon will be removing the rest of it.

    reason why i got it was to join the two vehicles i had into one:
    1- 08 Honda Civic Si 4 doors.
    2-98 Jeep Cherokee Sport

    i need the 4 doors because i have a 4 year old daughter and i'm a single dad so transportation in summer or winter has to be done as well as having to haul a trailer to the track with the bike in it.
    Well, no more trailer for me...this truck has the 4 doors and lots of room for the baby to play in and a bed to carry the bike in to the track, 6 speed and 4x4 works best to keep it fun in summer and winter.

    Nice!
    Here's what I used to transport before it was stolen. Only made it to 2 track days in putnumville, ind before it was gone.
    We have a great motorcycle thread to post up some pics.
